In-use Test:

Material:
Very soft to the touch. On very hot days (>25 deg centigrade), I felt the material may have been a little too 'warm'. (This may partly be down to the colour, of course.).

Fit:
Tester: Female, 5' 9'', slim build. Fits snuggly at waist and hips - waistband is elasticated at sides. Length of trousers is good. Lower legs are easy to remove - leaving shorts which are also an excellent length.

Pockets:
Four pockets in total. Once medium sized, velcro-sealing one at the back. Two good sized side pockets at the front; one zip fastened pocket on the right hand, front seam - useful for change, keys, car park ticket etc.

Care and Maintenance:
Basic instructions provided and easy to wash. My test garment was in a darker colour that did have a tendency to pick-up any fluff during washing - so a little thought is needed about what else you put in the washing machine. The trousers dried very quickly and were just about OK to wear without ironing.

Buying Advice:

Comfortable and flexible garment for social wear or for low level walking. Converts easily to excellently fitting shorts. Not really suitable for climbing or scrambling.
