Mountain Equipment's Lightline pants belong in the 'expedition' section of our adventures. They're obsessively engineered, lightweight, packable down trousers that suit a wide range of adventures across the globe. Everything from polar travel, ice cap crossings, high altitude trekking, expedition use and just about any sub-zero trip that doesn't require a full down suit. 

Lets start with the stuff that's going to keep you warm on all these wonderful excursions - the down. The Lightline pants are filled with 210g of Pure Down with a MINIMUM content of 90/10 700 fill power. What makes Mountain Equipment's down so special though is just how much responsibility they take when it comes to sourcing their down. Most people are now taking steps to make sure their down is coming from the right people, but Mountain Equipment, however, are taking the whole process to another level. The waterfowl (geese and ducks) are all by-products of the food and meat industry. Every supplier wishing to work with Mountian Equipment must accept the terms of their Down Codex and must be willing to grant access for their representatives to audit all parts of their supply chain - that means everything from farm and beyond. On top of all of that, you can even trace your down on their website right back to the source, with a unique 12 digit code printed on the label inside every Mountain Equipment down product. They do this to ensure that both quality and animal welfare are put at the heart of each of their down products.

In order to help protect the down from the elements, the trousers are made out of a 40D Drilite loft outer fabric which is totally wind proof and water resistant, giving you plenty of extra protection when you're out in snowy, cold conditions. Stitch-through baffle construction means the trousers are more breathable, lighter in weight and extremely packable. They also feature reinforced knees, seat and kick strips as well as added articulation in the knees for extra mobility on long mountain days. The trousers feature two full length YKK zips, which is really handy if you have to take them off over muddy or snowy boots. The braces are adjustable, replaceable and removable - but that doesn't mean they'll fall down if you choose to take them off. The waist is semi-elasticated to ensure that doesn't happen. Finally, Mountain equipment have also added a small external side pocket that will fit in an avalance reviever.

If you're off on an epic, icy adventure and you truly value warmth, durability and comfort then these should be an absolute MUST in your pack.

Care & Advice

How to wash your down products

Having spent years talking to people about down products, whether that’s a jacket, sleeping bag or even a pair of slippers, very few have had the confidence to go ahead and wash the product on their own, especially when they have just spent an arm and a leg on it. This small guide is here to explain that it’s not as daunting and utterly terrifying as it first appears.

Step one: Before you even get near that washing machine, wipe off any excess mud or dirt that may be lingering on the surface of the jacket, as this will clog up the washing machine, eventually rendering it useless.

We recommend the use of Nikwax Down Wash Direct for down products as it’s one hundred percent environmentally friendly and will wash and re-proof the garment without the use of bleach or any other nasty chemicals. What household washing agents can (and often do) is remove the water repellent coating on the fabric of the jacket, whilst also damaging the delicate array of feathers inside.

Step two: We’ll assume in this instance that you’ve been washing other products prior to your down jacket and have used a bleach based detergent. Therefore it’s a good idea to run the washing machine for half an hour or so without anything inside to rinse it clean before adding the Nikwax or putting the jacket in. Also, don’t forget to remove the detergent drawer to give it a wash inside, outside and behind, as detergent can clog up and still enter the washing machine if not cleaned out thoroughly. This ensures that any remnants of detergent are removed and that the Nikwax products will work effectively.

Step three: Set the washing machine to a cold wash (check the garments care label, most tend to be around 30°C) and as delicate as possible. Most washing machines have a “wool” cycle which is ideal.

Step four: If using Nikwax Down Wash Direct, place 100ml in either the tray or directly into the washing machine inside a small pot/ball. If you choose to use another washing product, place the appropriate amount in the machine in the same way.

Step five: Set the washing machine to run on a slow cycle, allowing plenty of time for the jacket to soak up the cleaning/re-proofing product. Most washing machines will have a pre-set time for different washing cycles.

When the cycle has finished be prepared for a shock, your precious bit of kit will come out looking like a soggy ball of material. But don’t worry, you haven’t ruined it, it’s just that all that fluffy down insulation has become water logged and has clumped together. The trick is to now get all that down nice and dry to reinstate its superb insulating properties. Simply hanging it up in a warm place will not work that well. It will take days to properly dry and you will have to constantly break up the clumps to get it thoroughly dry. The best way is to use a tumble dryer; either a domestic one for smaller items or a commercial drier for sleeping bags.

Step six: Pop the garment into the dryer and make sure to select a low heat; a high heat runs the risk of melting seams and fabrics within the garment. It sounds weird, but shove a few tennis balls into the drier with the garment; the tennis balls will bounce around and help to break up the clumps of down. Every 20 minutes, pull the jacket out of the dryer and lie the jacket down on a table. Run your hands over the jacket until you find a 'clump' or ball of down; tease apart this down clump and spread it evenly into the baffle. Once you're confident you've pulled apart every clump to the best of your ability, stick it back in for another 20 minutes. Keep repeating this until there are no more clumps left. 

Step seven: When the cycle has finished and you are sure that you have got the garment as dry as possible, hang it up in a warm dry place, an airing cupboard is ideal, for 24 hours. This drives out the last of any dampness and allows the down to loft fully. Take it out and give it a good shake and, hey presto, it’ll be as good as new.

The product I bought was competitively priced.

I chose "click and collect" which was an efficient and quick process. I would definitely shop here again.
