Good-looking yet practical walking trousers with few faults. The fabric looks casual – almost cotton-like – but it’s actually stretchy, making for really easy movement. The cut’s good too, and the waist has elastic panels, belt loops and a webbing belt. The knees, seat and inner ankles are reinforced, which is very practical, as at £70, you want them to last. Not the most water-resistant but the dry really quickly if they do get wet so all’s not lost. They have fewer pockets than some, and none will really swallow a map or a guidebook, but the three pockets are all zip-access and therefore very secure. A drawcord at the hem ensures a good fit around the boot.
