So what are they like?
Bought a pair of these and liked them so much I bought another pair - and a pair for my wife (although they'll need to be shortened). I'm 36 X 32 in jeans and the 34 to 36 in these trousers is a perfect fit. I normally wear Fjallraven Kebs but I think these are the equal of them. I might be a bit dubious about the velcro waist fastening holding up but I could easily have a hook and eye fitted if necessary - a minor detail for the price! Five stars for quality and innovation.
Fantastic straight out the packet
My wife left me to pick my valentines present but wouldn’t fork out for a pair of Fjallraven trousers. I saw these last week and decided to give them a go. I’m not disappointed.
There is a lot of thought gone into them with the hybrid fabric approach meaning the right amount of flexible panels and reinforced canvas sections including full front. The Velcro top is a nice touch meaning that it really will fit 32 inch to 34 inch waist (medium) and remain snug.
I’ve walked about 15 miles in them this weekend and they have been very comfortable, good level of wind protection and not soaked through in the showers I have been in but they aren’t waterproof without waxing.
Looking forward to a few days in the woods and a few outdoor first aid sessions where the knee pads I bought with them will get well used.
