Rab Torque Mountain Pants
For the 2021 season, Rab has come up with a hiking version of its best-selling and most popular model , the Rab Torque. While the classic Torque is basically defined as a climbing pant with a wider cut and reinforced panels against abrasion, the Torque Mountain version has a narrower cut, lacks the reinforced panels and is more of a casual hiking pant.
The material remains the same as the classic Torque version. It is Rab's own Matrix stretch fabric, which boasts high breathability, excellent durability, lightness and the ability to dry quickly. The same material is also used in the popular Borealis softshell jacket or the ultra-lightweight Rab Talus running shorts. The fabric is treated with a DWR finish, so the pants can handle 15-20 minutes of light rain.
TheTorque Mountain pants offer all the features needed for casual hiking. First of all, they have four zippered pockets. Two on the side, one on the back and one on the right thigh. Zippers are also on the hem of the legs, where they take care of the leg extension for use with taller trekking boots. The last zipper is at the waist, where it serves for a classic fastening along with two metal studs. The waistband is half elasticated and has six belt loops for extra tightening if needed.
The Torque Mountain trousers are cut in a slim fit and are therefore much narrower and more snug to the body. This is most noticeable in the thighs and calves. However, thanks to the highly stretchable Matrix fabric, the narrower fit is not a hindrance and the trousers do not restrict movement in any way. This is also helped by the pre-shaped knees. The absence of reinforced panels at the knees and on the inside of the calves also increases breathability, so you won't sweat as much in the trousers.
All of these features make the Torque Mountain pants ideal for classic hiking for day or weekend trips or even week-long treks where there is less risk of mechanical abrasion on the rock. With their tighter fit and increased breathability, they're also comfortable to run in, making them ideal for fastpacking trips in cooler temperatures where you're running part of the trip and walking part.
