Ok so looking for anybody who owns or has worn the Fuera Trousers.
Im a massive Paramo fan but very little available locally so all mail order...Are they a tight or loose fit?
Im 32 waist and considerng the medium but would not like a tight fit! I think Im about a 31 leg...med reg montane terra are perfect leg length on me.
Any help appreciated!
Size medium arrived today and just as heads up to anybody...
They are a massive fit!
I decided on medium based on Paramo size chart and others telling me they are a close fit..Size chart states they will t 'up to' 32 inch waist and reg inside leg is 30in...
Well Im 32 waist and 31 inside leg and I reckon I could fit my kids in with me...the leg seems too long but I think this could be just because the whole cut is too big for me. The waist will easily accomodate a bigger guy than me and I could fit 2 of my legs in each trouser leg.
Small its is for me then!
Nigel the sizing must have changed or something

yes sounds like it. I dug them out, and the problem is not amount of windproof fabric around the waist but a very tight elastic, I have to put a lot of force in to get them to stretch to the point the windproof fabric not bunched by the elastic. So I might be able to fix mine by unstitching a little putting in a length of more elastic.
Dont have anything handy to measure but will post that on for you tomorrow Nigel.
Yes mine have tie cords too.
Out of curiosity, what colour are yours? They are advertised as dark grey and I thought 'oh well' they will be really boring but mine are actually a lighter grey than I expected...far lighter than the online photos...and they do look really really cool actually...even my better half thought they looked good...and she normally laughs at my outdoor clothing!
Ive tried them on a few times and to be honest...they are really roomy but they are really really comfy. Im beginning to wonder if its just my preference kicking in...I have always seemed to like close fitting stuff on my legs.
I mean I could head into the hills with these no bother as they are...I know that for sure...but I just found that when I have the waist sitting where I like on my own waist...the actual crotch sits low...I can pull them comfortably well above my waist and still do full knee bend...this makes me think they are just too big for me.
I have to say though...they are really really comfy and light. I always thought my Montane Terras were never going to be beaten for light leg wear...but these are in a league of their own...they feel like silk and the double side zips are just the ticket...I imagine venting will be very very good.
And they look really really good. I would wear these to the shops no bother...and thats coming from someone who isnt just old enough yet to give up on the old fashion sense on the high street.
I agree their next-to-skin qualities are excellent. Lucky you they fit well.
Yeah well...I think the small will be a better fit.
Are yours grey as well Nigel? Or are they really dark like all the online photos?
held up to laptop screen, the real pants make the online image look blue. Lighter but not much. I'd call it a dark grey.
Not sure if it is needed, but I immediately from new have them a Techwash soaking rinse and a TXDirect wash rinse. Jon at WWD said it helps just add a tad of proofing to seams and zips.
You might have heard of Zalando, but I bet you didn’t know Europe's number one fashion destination now has a dedicated sports and outdoors shop?
It’s not all hill walking and Kendal mint cake
