A great pair of hard-wearing trousers, with excellent waterproofing and breathability as afforded by a 3-layer eVENT membrane. The face-fabric is particularly rugged with large reinforced sections around the ankle area to protect against rubbing and further reinforcement around the articulated knees and backside. The trousers have been built with quite a fitted shape that really helps to keep rustling noise down as well as preventing them from turning into a sail in strong winds. Ankle adjustment is good, with poppers helping to pull them tight from Velcro tabs. The three-quarter-length openings are more like four-fifths, so the trousers are incredibly easy to slip on over a pair of boots. An excellent pair of trousers, although expensive compared to the others. This time you really do get what you pay for.
