It’s hard to think that trousers can differ that much from one pair to another, but Pentagon really have made a decent pair that come in the form of the Vorras climbing trousers, or ‘pants’ as the Americans call them.
They have been designed from the outset to be strong enough to survive the toughest outdoor activities, whilst also being comfortable and stylish.
The trousers are mainly made of nylon canvas, but Pentagon has also added a stretchy nylon ripstop material to the knees, ankles and the rear of the trousers. This additional protection on the knees was particularly useful when kneeling on cold wet ground, as it offered some additional comfort, while the material on the seat protected my rear from water and mud on my boot heel.
It is the addition of this reinforcement material and triple stitching at various stress positions that makes these trousers so hard-wearing. They are available in two colours, coyote (on test) and camo green and are packed full of practical features. These include strengthened belt loops, a small internal waistband pocket, two standard hand pockets that are reinforced, two zipped rear pockets, two thigh pockets, adjustable elastic cords around the ankles and even a specially designed crotch that allows more freedom of movement.
Importantly, the trousers are water resistant and also breathable, coming with an internal ventilation system. Temperature can be controlled by opening zipped vents, which are positioned alongside the main thigh pocket on each leg. When used with thermal leggings underneath, the two vents work really well. All in all, these trousers are great for hunting, shooting from various positions, hiking and all sorts of outdoor activities.
