The Rab Torque Pants are close fitting, stretchy softshell pants primarily designed for Alpine climbing, long rock routes or summer mountaineering but can equally be at home out walking in the UK hills and mountains. Durable Matrix Double Weave Stretch fabric is used for the main body of the pants with Matrix Single Weave Stretch in articulation zones such as the knees. Matrix fabric is a membrane-free stretch nylon, meaning it is very light and breathable but still has a good degree of weather resistance as the fabric is also DWR treated.
The waist is elasticated with a shock cord adjustment making it low volume under harnesses and packs and is also fast wicking for enhancing wearer comfort. The knees and kick patches are reinforced to help combat wear against rock and crampon use. For stashing topos and snacks and there are two zipped front pockets and a single zipped rear pocket. The expanding zipped lower legs accommodate larger boots or can be closed when using approach or rock shoes. The hems also feature webbing loops that under boot cords can be attached to.

Customer Reviews of Rab Torque Pants
These pants are hard wearing and provide the right amount of protection, without being to insulative. Their cut fits perfect and the stretch fabric is a wonder. Whether getting out and about on programs in Australia or trekking and climbing in the Himalaya, the Rab Torque pants suit all conditions.
Brilliant trousers. Plenty of movement where you need it, knees and thighs. I like the colour way and they are great in cold weather without needing a lining pair. All up really good build quality and at the price, amazing.
