Very nicely made, designed and fitting trouser. They are true to size, comfortable and non restrictive, making them very comfortable for walking. The material is clearly very hard wearing but is far lighter in weight than I was expecting. I've worn them a fair bit now in warm weather, and whilst I'm pleased with them because of the comfort, they are let down by the lack of water resistance - as they were described as water 'repellent' I wasn't expecting them to be waterproof, but they perform only a little better than jeans even though the feel of them is closer to a Goretex fabric than cotton. A heavy splash will bead off but anything more than about 5mins of rain and you are soaked, the water getting in via any folds and then soaking from the inside. I will retreat them, and if successful, these will be very versatile on their own in warmer conditions and a great outer shell in winter. If not, they will be rather limited.
