Odlo’s Spoor pants are typically understated, so work really well as summer walking trousers as well as a casual piece of clothing too – the fact that they’re ultra-light and very packable makes them great for travel.
They feature a soft, light woven fabric which has a UV protection of 30+ and lots of stretch, and the fabric is also treated with Odlo’s ‘F dry’ which provides excellent moisture management and fast dying.
The trade-off from having a lightweight, casual design is a lack of technical features, but the Spoor isn’t really aimed at more rugged outdoor types looking to spend the summer hanging off crags or hiking long-distance trails.
This means that you simply get a standard waist with belt loops and zippered fly, two zipped hand pockets and a zipped rear pocket, all with inner mesh fabric and an ergonomic design, plus an ergonomic cut on the legs.
The leg length on the pair we tested was also quite long and the hems needed to be rolled up, but this doesn’t really detract from the looks.
For travellers, recreational walkers and anyone in search of a cool-looking casual pant for the summer, the Odlo Spoor trousers will work well, but if you want something for more serious outdoor action you may want to look elsewhere.
