No-one likes having a wet bum, so the ability to make some areas of your outdoor trousers water-resistant is very useful. Fjällräven Abisko/Tundra trousers are made from polyester / cotton, which can be treated with Greenland Wax for more water resistance. Proofing the seat, knees, thighs and ankle cuff areas is ideal for many walking situations as this then leaves other areas more breathable. Comfort is enhanced by stretch panels, articulated knees and a diamond crotch. The leg length is unfinished too, so you can alter as required. For your maps and valuables you get a good map-sized thigh pocket and a GPS pocket on the other thigh, while the two main zipped pockets are deep and secure.
