A longer fit helps to keep the tops of your trousers dry with hem and mid-torso cinches helping keep it tight to your body with easy adjustment. The lining does provide a bit of insulation, which is good when it’s colder, although as soon as you begin to sweat it gets very clammy inside, with a lack of venting not helping matters. The pockets are difficult to access with a rucksack on and the lining can pull out every time something is retrieved from the ‘napoleon’ pocket.
