Jul-Sept 2019: Ruta Asturianos Lebaniego / Apr 2018 Asturias / May 2016 CP: Portuguese
Ever since reading @TMcA's post regarding this apparently Men's only option, I have been enamored and searched high and low for the same or similar trouser in a Women's cut.
Then, I watched a video series, posted on @Anamya's Camino Lebaniego thread. Not even 15 seconds into the first video and I spotted Her trousers! 🤩 After leaving a couple of messages asking her about them, she sent me a link to one of the two styles she wears. I'd never before heard of Decathalon stores and, the price is certainly right!
SO guess who is going shopping at the nearest location when she's base camped in Oviedo for six week? 😁
Do any of you Ladies own these or anything like them (great sized pockets and smaller zipped ones) in a women's cut? If so please share. While my Macabi skirt continues to serve me well, I also want a pair of true trousers that offer a lightweight synthetic fabric for quick drying as well as, keeping me on the cooler side.
EDIT: Please share the Brand and Style of your favorites. ;)
Buen Camino!

There is now a Decathlon store in the US, so you can order without paying exorbitant shipping costs.

See if the Decathlon site has the ability to notify you when the item is back in stock.

They provide excellent value for cost.

The other really good Camino pants are REI Sahara convertible cargo pants. The are available at REI.com for both men & women. They are more expensive but wear well and have good features.

Hope this helps.

@RumAndChupacabras I am very fond of my Vaude pants. A German brand. Very quick drying as I noticed on my last Camino!


On the more expensive side but very good good quality to match.
Right pocket large enough for different items.
Left pocket large enough to hold a bottle of half a litre of water.

Costco is currently stocking an extremely lightweight quick drying Capri length pant, Kirkland brand. Stretchy waist with drawstring, the 2 front pockets are large although do not zip. $20 in Canada. Very comfortable, I went back and got a second pair.

This I found on the internet and describes how I feel about polyamide.

"Polyamide fabrics tend to have a better feel, because they have softer and more flexible fibers, though they produce more static. This softness was because they were initially designed as an alternative for silk. This high strength-flexibility combo drives up their cost. Polyester fabrics have a rough feel, though they are more lightweight. However, thanks to modern technology, manufacturers have produced varieties of polyesters which are just as soft as silk, nylon, and other polyamides. "

This is TRUE, globally. However, their size tables are very good about converting their international sizing (smallish) to US sizing. In my experience, shoes are true to metric sizing.

Tops, shirts, jackets and the like I need to upside one full size, after erring on the size of going larger from my US sizing.

For example, in the US, I wear a XL for Under Armour t-shirts and polo shirts. However, some of these are cut on the small side, so I need to round up to XXL to get the loose fit I desire. HOWEVER, in the Decathlon sizing tables, the same chest measurement used for XXL in the US yields a XXXL in Decathlon. But, do not worry, they carry a lot of stuff in the larger sizes. I think it is because they know about this paradigm shift.

Waist measurements are similar to above. If in doubt, go UP one size.

I have scored some fabulous deals form the US Decathlon site. They offer very good value for cost.

Hope this helps.

For Aussies.
If, as for me, your definition of 'best' includes budget pricing, checkout Aldis upcoming 6th of July offering.
Men's and women's hiking/outdoor pants. $24.99.
While not having convertible zip-off legs they appear to satisfy most other requirements.
Ultralight Down Vests and jackets, suitable, imo, for late spring/summer/early autumn Caminoing at $29.99 and $49.99.
Specials have limited stock at Aldi, so it's the early bird, very early, like opening time, that catches the worm.
Regards, but as is usual at Aldi sale time....keep outta my way cobber,

Are they quick to dry, @amocatnerak?
Yes. You can hand wash and hang to dry and they are great. Wore them (my black pair) every day in Spain and they are still going strong.

Edit: yes, four pockets! Plus a wide, flat waistband with no belt loops to rub on your pack.

I’ve worn these for years. They stretch four ways, have 2 zipped security pockets, and 2 hand pockets, dry really quickly, have UPF40+ etc etc etc.
Unlike most Rohan trousers for women, they have a comfortable waist, which is very stretchy. I have these in several sizes and I’ve been comfortable in at least 2 sizes at a time ... they’re very forgiving 😉
And they’re in the sale!
Btw, they last forever!
I know they have customers in the US, but I’m not sure whether they have a US website.

That's so funny, what doesn't Aldi sell when I need it. Last year we needed a wheelchair - suddenly Aldi had them in for a week. Guess I'm off to Aldi to get me some trekking pants and vests and jackets.

I am still baffled by why people carry long pants at all on the Camino, much less convertible pants: "Shants" (which I have a variety of problems with that I've outlined elsewhere). But I do admire those two-color all-techy-looking European trekking pants I see on the Camino trail, for fashion reasons, if nothing else. I want the yellow and black ones.

Speaking of Costco, I found there two styles of men's cargo shorts with stretchy waistbands that fit women and have very usable pockets. I am excited to hear that Decathelon has a US outlet now. I am going to check if they have that Quechua raincoat/poncho thing I saw people wearing (that looks like an Altus, but lighter-weight).

I have not read the other thread. My reasons for buying zip off trousers: precisely because they do two jobs: full length when needed, shorts when not. Gender? Whatever fits me and is on sale. I have worn them zillions of times since the first camino, home and away. In fact, I could blame them - which would be infantile! - for my increasing girth, as they are so forgiving. Fashion is not a priority for me.

Costco.com has women's travel pants that are similar and superb, about half the price, if you are a Costco member. I wore a pair on the Camino for 80 miles in May and loved them so much I came home and bought two more pairs in different colors. Easy to find online.

Yeah, I dont wear sunscreen om my legs. If it gets cold, I pull on long underwear bottoms under my shorts, a change I can make on the trail faster than it takes someone with convertable pants to zip on the bottom legs. There definitely are times when long pants would be nice to have though. If I could get some of those classy two tone European ones, and they werent too heavy, I'd onsider them.

Why not a pair of lightweight long pants and a pair of shorts then, so you have something to wear while you are washing the other?

Do you have poppers ‘under’ your shorts ... like those ‘body’ things?

I've discovered these North Face Aphrodite trousers:
They're really comfortable, with an elasticated waistband rather than needing a belt.
The seams at the knees are in just the right place. I can't wear shorts as I am fair skinned and burn very easily, so these are just the thing for me.

I just have two pairs on the go, so I don't have to think! the bottoms of both pairs take up a tiddly little space in the pack.
I can see carrying one pair of long pants and one pair of shorts, which would be lighter and simpler to me than two pairs of convertible pants. It's easy to change from one to the other. I wasn't bragging about how quick a change artist I am, but how long it seems to take people to zip the pant legs back on their shants. But, come to think of it, I'm not sure why I'm trying to convince anybody that what works for them, really doesn't! :) I'm sorry.

I am anything but stylish, but maybe I could turn over a new leaf with the yellow and black (or red and black) two-tone pants! Actually, after my recent Camino Portugues, I spent a couple of days walking around Madrid and caught a look at myself in a window. Spanish people were dressed pretty sharp and here I was in cargo shorts and an oversized tee shirt, like some tourist guy at Disneyland. So I popped into a shop and bought an inexpensive linen dress and wore it out of the store. It is multi-colored; quite bright. Then I noticed that everybody else in Madrid seems to wear black, white and earthtones and I still stood out.

That is still to be determined. Normally, I wouldn't put as much thought in it since, my bag is always ready (for the @davebugg "Emergency Camino")! :D
The trousers are in my mind for when we do a variant Lebaniego route, which appears much more rustic than the CP was. I think they'll do better at protecting me than my Macabi....maybe. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Can't help you there. I had a pair of cheap zip-off trousers I used a few times on the Camino, but they weren't satisfactory. I haven't looked for better hiking pants but will be interested in the responses to your question, since I do want a better pair eventually.

I wore Columbia Omni Shade and Omni Shield pants and were great . Even though they were black, they never absorbed the heat of the sun, flicked off moisture and dried really fast during the night

On Camino Norte, I wore Ex-Officio convertible pants, but I found that it was such a pain to constantly be zipping and unzipping the lower leggings. When you're cold and tired, getting the zipper lined up just right was less than ideal! I currently wear REI Kornati roll-up pants, and I LOVE them. They are durable, fast drying, and sooo comfortable, and it's handy to be able to roll them up instead of removing a whole section. Plus, they look sharp. I actually wear them to work because they barely look like hiking pants. They have two zip pockets in the back and one zip pocket on the side, as well as two regular pockets. Here's the link (note that they have regular, tall, petite, and plus sizes): https://www.rei.com/product/119941/rei-co-op-kornati-roll-up-pants-womens

Totally concur! I have an old pair of nylon convertibles by White Sierra but, since I need to replace them I won't be doing convertibles again...for all the reasons you list regarding the Kornati's you LOVE. ;) They look great AND they have length's!!!

I just ordered a pair online yesterday after learning of them here. You sure can't beat $10.99 (including shipping)! I begin the CF 16 August and planned on the Kuhl pants I've been wearing on training hikes. I absolutely love them but they have a hole now so I don't think they'd get through a Camino. The Costco ones look great though!

I love my Kuhl pants but admittedly know nothing about what kind they are. I found them at a thrift store quite a while back. They are lightweight and indeed dry very quickly. Today on a hike I spilled water all over them, soaked through, and they were dry well before I got back to my vehicle 1.7 moderately difficult miles later.

Maybe try air drying them when you have time, just to see how long it takes? I did that with my travel towels. Curiosity gets the better of me sometimes!

Stio CFS Board Pants. Trim fit with deep, roomy front pockets. Lightweight, SPF and fast drying. Smart enough for those to whom that sort of thing matters, LOL. I took two pairs and switched them on our Camino, and one pair of shorts. A bit $$ but they last and are tough wearing.

UPS dropped by today with my Decathalon order:

OHH EMM GEEE, They fit perfectly, I'm happy to say! 👏

Upon first try: The pockets are fairly deep. While not as cavernous as a Macabi skirt's pockets, they are bigger than most women's trousers I've seen and, they're well placed. As far as weight goes they feel fairly light, including the belt (which IS removable). The lighter color fabric is a 2 way stretch while, the darker color fabric is a thicker 4 way stretch. A small unexpected but appreciated feature is, that the pull tab cords are reflective!
Next I'll try them in the early morning, before it gets too hot.

For what I'm seeing in the construction, fit and feel of this trouser, I believe it is well worth its modest price point. 👍

I received my Costco Kirkland Signature pants this week. They are very comfortable. I'm happy there are normal pockets on front and back, and there's also a small one with a zipper. It would be perfect for a cell phone. The seams are mostly doubled and sturdy, while the pants still allow flexibility.

I tried to test the quick-dry aspect but was surprised to find that water just beads up on them. I formed a bucket with them in my sink and still, water just sat on top. It wasn't until I poured water inside them that they started to absorb anything, but still less than I expected. I think I've found my Camino pants!

Pros: Comfortable, inexpensive ($10.99 includes shipping), usable pockets, reflect water nicely.

Cons: A bit "swooshy" due to the material (just a heads up if that is bothersome).

So I was in Decathlon looking for pants for my Camino Lebaniego. Tried their new female hiking pants, zipped legs, fits perfectly... has TWO shallow pockets on the front and ONE-ONLY small pocket on the back! :eek:

Then I went to the male section, got the same brand/model in the smallest men size possible (I'm tiny). It fits almost exactly the same, but it has three deep pockets on the front (one zipped), two shallow pockets on the back, one very deep pocket on one side of the thigh and two on the other thigh.
Guess who walked the Lebaniego in "man´s pants?" :)
