Made from an incredibly tough polyamide fabric that still manages to feel soft and comfortable against the skin, the Uplanders are generously sized, so try them on carefully, and the legs are very loose-fitting. They do have a comfortable elastic panel in the waist and come with a nice belt. Out in the hills, they are a good compromise for summer and winter use, but they soaked up a shower quicker than most, drying quickly afterwards. A lot of money but conservative good looks make them very versatile.
