Lightweight and robust, with handy pockets in all the right places, the trousers are great. I've had mine for two weeks and had to get another pair. I'm a gardener by trade and wanted something to weather the daily onslaught of thorns, brambles, sweat, rain and mud. These trousers are more than up to the job, and are well worth the cost. They're comfortable, breathable and tough. I love the stab proof pockets -very useful for carrying penknife, trowel or secateurs. Makes working that bit more enjoyable!
