These winter trousers from Craghoppers are a superb fit for me and a good length. The elasticated waist, backed up with a webbing belt, is excellent. The fleecy lining is very soft and feels great against the skin. Basically a lined version of a normal walking trouser. They provide plenty of insulation and keep the wind out, but aren’t as weather-resistant as many, so are really better for colder, drier weather.
Colours: Elephant grey, vine, dark navy, black

Verdict: A warm, comfortable and stylish walking pant that’s ideal for easier winter strolls or for more exposed going if you carry waterproof trousers, too. Wonderful value for money.
