Dare 2B Restrain Stretch 2011

The Dare 2B Restrain Stretch mountain trousers weigh 422g (size 33”); very stretchy fabric; belt supplied; triple stitching; articulated knees; one seat pocket and two hip pockets plus large map-sized leg pocket. But no ankle cuff adjustment, and the ankle cuffs are very wide; not as water-resistant or as warm as some options.

The Dare 2B Restrain Stretch’s extremely wide ankle cuff lets down performance of these good-value trousers.
