Rugged, protective and unbelievably comfortable, our Trailblazers are the ultimate trousers for the trail walker.Read more…
Our high performance, versatile expedition trousers are lightweight, durable and with stretch built in and with articulation darts, they give a really comfortable fit with great freedom of movement.
There’s an adjustable and removable belt, and plenty of pockets. There are two zipped pockets on the thighs, one is a handy side seam pocket big enough to fit an OS map, and the other is a patch pocket that’s great for quick-access to niggly items like cash and keys. There are also two hip pockets and one rear pocket, all of which are zipped. In short, there’s plenty of space for everyday essentials.
Insect Shield® technology provides long-lasting, effective and convenient insect protection against most pesky bugs. It's bonded tightly to the fabric fibres and will retain its effectiveness through the life of the product. Add Sun Protection UPF 40+ and Dynamic Moisture Control™, and you’ve got the perfect hot-weather trouser.
The Trailblazer fabric's advanced fusion of tough polyamide and stretchy elastane offers an unbeatable combination of freedom of movement and great long-term durability.
All this technology has combined to create a pair of trekking trousers that’ll stand up to any challenge, be it an afternoon amble through the Peak District or a five day trek in the Picos de Europa.
Multiflex Light (94% polyamide, 6% elastane).
Pack Size: 950ml

Building stretch into our fabrics offers some big advantages. It allows us to make very comfortable, streamlined clothing. And a close fit has big advantages for active people. Clothes don’t flap in the wind, they work well in a layering system without bulking up and because there is less fabric, they are lighter, dry quicker and pack smaller – all critical Rohan virtues.
Our Dynamic Moisture Control™ finish is a permanent, wicking treatment that rapidly spreads moisture, such as sweat, over a wide surface area of the fabric. This ensures the garment dries more quickly and you stay more comfortable - even in the hottest and most humid conditions.
This permethrin-based treatment is invisible, odourless and impairs the ability of insects including mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, fleas, chiggers and midges to land, and so reduces bites. It’s extremely durable too – and is designed to last for the lifetime of the product.
We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.
Low pack size is a benefit whether you’re packing for a day’s walking or for the trip of a lifetime. We continually scrutinise fabric specification and garment construction to minimise the packed size of our clothing. The actual pack size is tested and listed.
All Rohan clothing is designed to be very fast drying – as much a benefit for unexpected downpours as anything else. It’s easy to wash and often needs no ironing. Almost all garments will dry overnight, meaning you can take less with you. We test every item and list its drying time.

Bought a pair of Trailblazers in Sept 2018, and they have been a great success. I also use it for archery where multiple pockets for glasses, scorecards etc are reallt useful.
Having lost weight I needed to get another pair in next waist size down, so bought new pair (Aug 2019).
Worn a few times now.
You only get 5 pockets on 2019 version as opposed to 7 on last years. It's lost one of the back pockets, and the other is now 3cm shallower.
The side pockets are both zipped ,whereas last years had a inner zipper pocket on right. I preferred the inner zip as you could keep valuebles secure while rest of pock is still useable for quick access.
The right thigh pocket (with horizontal zip) has been replaced by side seam zipped pocket which Rohan claim is "big enough to fit an OS map".
Yes you can just fit it in by forcing it and and damaging you map, and then its hard to get out. The previous top zipped pocket allowed you to slip map in and out easily with one hand. If you are tall you can't zip the side pocket up with one hand and have to bend down and grab fabric with other hand.
Apart from the zipped side pockets the others changes are retrograde.
I contacted Rohan to see if they had any of 2018 model trousers left in my size and there was only 1 in green (a colour I don't like anyway).
I have been buying and wearing Rohan since the 1970s when the bags first appeared, advertised in the Sunday Times Colour Supplement and there was only one outlet in Long Preston. I have bought and worn Rohan ever since. It serves me well, is exceptionally practical, easy to wash and no ironing! I am wearing Rohan most days. It has kept me warm and dry at the top of Kilimanjaro, cool and fresh in Beijing in the summer and Brisbane at Christmas. The Trailblazers are very practical and lightweight. Most of Rohan gear is. My only criticism is the Regular leg length used to be 32" now it seems to be 31". I may only be 5' 6" tall but my waiste is 32" and my inside leg 32". Some trousers said to be regular and therefore 31", such as the Overlanders, are actually longer than is said! Many are too short. Of course there is a solution, by long, but its a pain to go off to a seamstress! If it is a a new potential Rohan customer reading this then take the plunge, you will not regret it. Great gear, smart, practical, functional and it lasts for years and years! Whether it is socks, underwear, T shirts, tops or trousers and of course the down coats! I am not paid by Rohan to write this!
I'm a Rohan trousers fan. I've been wearing nothing but for the past four years. Of my eight pairs, Trailblazers are my favorite summer pants. I live in an a heavily insect infested area (Vermont USA) and I appreciate not being swarmed by mosquitoes or finding ticks crawling up my legs when I return from walking the dog in the woods.
As with most Rohan trousers, I also appreciate the many zippered pockets -- especially good when traveling in areas with active pickpockets.
As for size, I know what to order from Rohan but, for newer customers, I'd recommend buying a size smaller than you might expect from another company.
