Craghoppers Kiwi stretch trousers

were:€55 now only:€40

Even though I've only had my pair of these for about 2 weeks now, i thought it was time for quick review.

First off, these trousers are seriously comfortable - the material is very lightweight yet you feel virtually no wind through them, even when it's blowing a gale - they actually feel like a lightweight softshell (even though technically they are not) and do a decent enough job of repelling a reasonable amount of drizzle as well.

The best thing about them though is the stretch - they really do stretch, even when my fat backside squats down, there is plenty of stretch available to deal with it - this really makes a difference when you need to put a foot up quite high (and we all know how frequent this is going up -hill or doing a bit of scrambling). With 2 zipped hand pockets, 1 zipped rear pocket and a sizeable cargo pocket there is plenty of space for sausages/maps/bacon etc.

They are also very fast drying and have UP40 sun protection. All in all a flippin great pair of trousers for general hillwalking and casual/travelling purposes too.

That's about all that needs to be said about these - come and check them out.
