Marmot Scree 2009

£60.00

The price of these Scree trousers is great.

Paramo Cascada

£100.00

These winter trousers from Paramo are a little long and baggy, but are incredibly comfortable next to the skin and lovely to move around in. A belt would be better than the drawcord adjuster, though. Not only really warm, but waterproof too, so they offer superb protection in bad weather. A little toasty for milder winter days perhaps, and not ...
