Kathmandu is relatively new to the UK but it’s very good for travel gear. Their Batangsi pants are the only trousers we’ve seen that have the option of 3/4 length or full zip-off legs. The zip, however, could rub and cause problems if you have larger thighs. There are lots of pockets on offer, and the material wicks effectively to keep you cool.
