Kathmandu Barge Zip-Off Pant 2010

The Kathmandu Barge Zip-Off Pants weigh 326g; Supplex nylon is fast-drying; elasticated waist with belt loops; two seat pockets; two map-sized leg pockets; zipped thigh pocket; diamond crotch; ankle cuff press stud adjustment; double stitching in many areas. But the two hip pockets are not map-sized; no stretch material; no lower leg zips.

The Kathmandu Barge Zip-Off Pants are reasonable walking trousers at a reasonable price, but they’re not perfect.
