In Trail Magazine's review, our Ardent Soft-shell Walking Trousers shine as an embodiment of our designers typical approach, merging outstanding practical performance with a pocket-friendly price.
Awarding Ardent with the coveted Best Value badge, the reviewer suggests that a different brand logo might add an extra £50 to their price, emphasizing their tremendous value as they're priced under £100. Crafted from a double-weave soft-shell material with a water-repellent coating, these trousers not only offer protection but also showcase resilience. Their tight weave ensures a solid defense against wind and light rain, all while maintaining commendable breathability.
The trousers' design ensures wearers enjoy warmth without the risk of overheating. Additionally, the touch of spandex embedded in the fabric guarantees that wearers can move freely, be it during brisk walks or while navigating rocky terrains. Key areas like the knees, instep, and rear receive extra reinforcement, adding to the trousers' longevity. On the features front, the trousers don't disappoint either, boasting gusseted ankle zippers, an array of pockets, an in-built belt, a waist lined with microfleece, and a handy ankle adjustment toggle.
The verdict is clear: the Alpkit Ardent trousers provide warmth, weatherproofing, and comfort, all at a price that's hard to beat.
