The Tasmania is cut from a soft, lightweight nylon that felt nice to walk in and is generously sized. The fabric hasn’t got as much water-repellency as some, but it dried quickly, provided some wind resistance, and breathed well, too. They have two deep hip pockets, and a selection of zipped pockets for valuables. The reinforced, articulated knees aided movement as well as increasing durability. The fabric is anti-UV and anti-mosquito so they get top marks for versatility. Excellent value for money.
