The Full Story+

Our high performance, versatile expedition trousers are lightweight and feature built-in stretch and articulation darts to provide a really comfortable fit with greater freedom of movement.

They feature a removable belt and four zipped pockets – two on the hip and two on the thighs. In short, there’s plenty of space for everyday essentials for any trip or trail.

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 versatile trekking trousers or shorts, that’ll stand up to any challenge, be it a five day trek in the Picos de Europa or an afternoon ramble along the Pennine Way.

Fabric: Multiflex Light™ (94% polyamide, 6% elastane) with Dynamic Moisture Control™

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.

Fast Drying - Drying Time: 4 hours
Fast Drying - Drying Time: 4 hours

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.

INSECT SHIELD®

Insect Shield® technology converts clothing into convenient, comfortable and effective protection against biting insects. Each garment is treated with permethrin – an invisible and odourless ingredient that helps protect against insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges.

SUN PROTECTION UPF 40+

This garment has been tested in accordance with recognized international standards for ultraviolet radiation protection – and has been awarded a rating of UPF 40+. The protection offered may be significantly reduced with extended wear or if the garment is stretched or wet. Any associated UV risks will vary according to individual skin type or medical history.

DYNAMIC MOISTURE CONTROL™

DMC™ is a wicking treatment that rapidly spreads the moisture our bodies create across the surface area of a garment. This can be achieved through the technical construction of the garment or by a performance coating and ensures that the garment dries more quickly, encourages evaporative heat loss and helps you stay cooler and more comfortable for longer.

4 Secure Pockets

Losing the odd bit or bob when you’re close to home is rarely an issue, but losing car hire keys, passport, phone or wallet becomes more important than ever in a far off land. That’s why lots of thought goes into safer pockets – deeper, zipped and hidden.

New Trailblazers

★☆☆☆☆

I am so disappointed that the leg pockets have gone, I have 3 pairs in the old design and, like others before me wanted another pair. No way, the pockets are useless, as I discovered on the Roamers where not only is the pocket useless but it's now on the left leg. As this is more of the same I won't be buying

Very disappointed

★★☆☆☆

I have been a fan of these for ages and generally buy at least one new pair every year. I couldn't believe it this year when I bought some and found you have changed the thigh pockets. Complete disaster as far as I'm concerned. To start with, not only can you no longer open and close the pockets single handed, it's actually quite awkward even with two hands. Impossible if you're out with a couple of dogs on leads. Also, the pockets can no longer be left undone as stuff falls out, and lastly, stuff has a tendency to fall out anyway when you're trying to open and close them. I was so excited when I saw you'd introduced a navy colour too, but sadly I won't be buying any more unless the pockets go back to how they were.

I do sometimes wonder if anyone at Rohan actually tries your gear out in any serious hill or mountain conditions at all...

Quel dommage

★★★☆☆

I have a pair of the original design which are perfect for golf as they dry out very quickly after a soaking, and have great pockets to hold phone etc; however my pair are a bit on the large side as I have lost weight since I bought them. Came online to buy a replacement pair and saw straight away that Rohan have ruined the pockets. Why? Read the disappointed reviews of others who confirm my view that the new pocket design is not practical. I won't be buying another pair until they go back to the original design and sincerely hope Rohan take note of the feedback - particularly that two hands are needed to open the zip, and that sitting down means sitting on whatever is in them!

Sorry to hear you that you are disappointed with amendments. Please be assured we have passed your feedback on to our Design Team.

The perfect trousers, except.......

★★★★☆

I have to agree with other reviewers, these are my favourite trousers (I have three pairs now) they are perfect for travelling and active holidays. BUT, the constant change of design is not of benefit, but change for change’s sake. The horizontal pockets are so much better than the vertical ones. Please re-instate them for next season! I’d rather buy at full price and get something that is perfect. If they are in the sale, you should be asking why? The answer is, because they’re not as good as they used to be!!

They've ruined the pockets!!!

★★☆☆☆

I love these trousers - the two front thigh zip pockets were perfect for travelling, especially to less salubrious areas. I am able to safely keep my wallet and passport in one pocket and my mobile in the other. Now those wonderful pockets are no more and instead there is a huge pocket down the side of one leg that is impossible to open with one hand, and is at the back of the leg so that when you sit down you are sitting on whatever is in the pocket. I was going to buy a couple more pairs of these in the new spring colours, but when I saw what they had done to the pockets I didn't even bother to try them on. WHY OH WHY ruin a perfectly good design??????? The ratings given are for the new design - the previous design would have got 5 blobs for both expectations and value.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I have passed your comments onto our Design Team.

Trailblazers are still good, but they used to be perfect

★★★★☆

Before I start on my complaints, let me tell you the things that are great about these pants. There is a snap on the right side of the belt to keep it in place on the pants. This means you can secure something between that snap and the side loop--a compact camera case, eg-- and it will not fall off when you undo your pants. The stretch is great for hiking and clambering and the insect shield really works to keep those biting insects away.

I have 4 pairs of the Trailblazers in the old design, where you can easily slip your mobile phone in the cargo pocket without even bothering with the zip. This is a great feature for hiking when you want to use your phone for a quick photo, without slowing down the group. Unfortunately, this year I needed to size up. I agree with other reviewers that the pockets on the newer style are not nearly as convenient as the previous design, and hope that Rohan will return to that since they really were perfect hiking pants. I was able to buy these in the sale section, but doubt I would pay full price for those with the less user-friendly pockets. Please, Rohan, these pants used to be perfect. Bring back the east-west cargo pockets and ditch the north-south pockets on the thighs.

Style changed for the worse

★★☆☆☆

Trailblazers WERE the most comfortable and practical trousers I've ever worn. Great fit, no rustling sound, comfy waist and excellent pockets....

UNTIL.... this season Rohan changed the zip pockets so they now run down the leg which needs a contortionist to access and as soon as you open it the contents fall out.

I was all set to buy this season's colour until I noticed this when I tried a pair on in my local store, and promptly put them back. So disappointed.

Why have you done this Rohan, please give us back the old pockets that worked so well - one for a mobile and one for a map, with no risk of either falling out.

Sorry to hear you that you are disappointed with amendments. Please be assured we have passed your feedback on to our Design Team.

Disappointed with the colour

★★★☆☆

I have had the willow trousers before and they had a lovely green tinge. These however are the exact same shade as the roamers, but more expensive. Very disappointing.

Fantastic - ticks every box

★★★★★

I recently travelled through Brazil and these trousers performed brilliantly, super comfortable, the multiple zip pockets are large enough to hold a compact camera and glasses. Enough stretch to climb in and out of jeeps and boats, washed and dried with ease and so quick! and never got bitten once! Comfortable waistband with no digging in and a decent belt to add a dash in finesse...

Style change!

★★★★☆

Have worn these trousers very happily for three summers now. The most comfortable trousers I've ever encountered even more so than the Roamers and that's saying something. Perfect, easy to launder, pack, no drag, comfy waist, great pockets.... BUT.... this '19 season you've changed the pocket to a zip at the back! Why? You did this to the Roamers (of which I have several pairs)and makes accessing them a contortion, especially when sitting down thus causing the contents to fall out. Not good if it's your phone! You've also made them very hippy. So, I bought the 30" men's version instead which still has the sensible pocket with the zip at the top. So, a partial redemption for a long time Rohan devotee!
