Kiwi Lined Winter Walking Trousers for Women
Features to Note:
The Craghoppers Kiwi Winter trousers, which are cut to sit on your natural waist, fitted well. (I was wearing 12/R and am usually a standard 12.)
They were very easy to wear - the fleecy lining was very comfortable against my skin and was certainly welcome on colder, windy days.
The material has no stretch at all but nonetheless the freedom of movement was fine over a variety of stiles and a few short, shallow scrambles.
The Regular length was perfect on me (I'm 5'7'') - the bottom of the legs are not too wide so there was no annoying flapping.
They've washed well, dried relatively quickly despite the fleecy lining and were ready to wear straight from the line.
There are six pockets - 2 zipped at back, 2 jean-style at front, 2 zipped side pockets. However, these are all relatively small and I found the zip 'pulls' all a little fiddly particularly with gloved hands.
The material appears to be reasonable robust - I've walked through a variety of overgrown paths and so far they've emerged unscathed.
The rain repellancy held up in light drizzle for about 10 mins - but thereafter they became pretty sodden.
The Craghoppers Kiwi Winter trousers for women are relatively heavy-weight, warm trousers - a great option for low/mid-level walking in cold, dry conditions.

• These trousers are certainly warm and comfortable but without any stretch in them I find they impede my step when scrambling or taking steep steps. This is worse if you have become rather warm as the lining seems to cling to your knees. I am now looking for something that I can perhaps put a separate layer underneath for warmth but will have knee 'joints' and be of a stretchy material.
