Two-way stretchy fabric and pre-formed knees for optimum ease of movement.

These cropped trousers have a form-fitting sporty cut. Using stretch fabric in both directions (width and length) allows perfect ease in the most restrictive movements when hiking, especially when going up.
Choose your usual size. Length falls below the knee.
MOISTURE TRANSFER TEST
The capacity of the fabric to wick away perspiration and dry quickly is measured according to several criteria: the absorbency of the fabric, the ability of the fabric not to saturate with sweat, speed of drying, etc. Level 1/5 is suitable for activities of low intensity or not generating a lot of sweat. All our hiking trousers and cropped trousers have a performance of 3/5.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our impact on the environment, we opted for a bulk dyeing or "dope-dyed" method for the black colour model. This method incorporates the dye pigments from the yarn manufacturing process onwards, and consumes less water.
The black MH500 cropped bottoms use this new dyeing process, which we want to replicate with other colours in the near future.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
A product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using various indicators.
A score from A to E is produced to help you make a responsible choice.
This rating is used to easily identify the products with the best environmental performance.
This is done by making a comparison between products of the same family (e.g. backpacks).
Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of this environmentally-friendly labelling approach.
