Craghoppers’ Kiwi Convertibles are extremely popular trousers that’ll be ideal for many walkers. They’re made from a cotton and polyester material that makes them very comfortable and they have nine pockets, of which five have zips. The thigh pocket is ideal for an OS map, and the zipped hip pockets are perfect for storing valuables when travelling. The elasticated waistbelt means the Craghoppers Kiwi Convertible Trouser should fit most people, and the zip-off lower legs are colour-coded so you can match the legs together. The zips are also well-designed for comfort and ease of use. A nice touch is an additional layer of material around the ankle hem, as well as double stitching in key areas for extra durability.
