PROS: What’s good about the Ronhill Women’s Trail Cargo Contour Capri

There really was a high content of Elastene which meant a super-comfy fit. Once these bad boys were on, I could completely forget about them.

I loved the waistband and drawstring as this meant I could get them to fit me exactly and there was no riding down as I continued on my run.

I liked the expandable back zip security pocket. It really gave me a good option for extra storage.
The silicon grippers on the thighs were a neat touch. I am a thigh-pusher on the hills and so I liked the idea.

CONS: What’s not so good about the Ronhill Women’s Trail Cargo Contour Capri

The leg pockets were very useful for stashing but of course once I had put stuff in them I found it irritating when I was running.

I wasn’t keen on the elastic grip on the calves as I found it unnecessary.

I liked the elasticated loops for gels on the back of the capris but found that they were covered up by my top which had a longer back, so they became a bit redundant.

CONCLUSION

I found these capris really great to wear. They fit well and the material was soft and stretchy. There were nice features and they had clearly been designed with lots of attention to detail. They also looked good which is a bonus. They do not offer compression but they are definitely a good trail-run design.

Score  
Design 8/10
Features 9/10
Performance 9/10
Value 8/10
Total 8.5/10
