That's in the American sense of the word pants - like trousers. I've had two pairs of Craghoppers Kiwi convertible trousers which have been worn to death (well I've attempted to but against all odds they've survived - they've been indestructible). They have stood the test of time so have proved that they are great value for money in that regard. After a recent spell of Munro Bagging however I was a bit frustrated in the drag against my legs when they got wet, one time through inclement weather (driving rain) and the other from sweat (nice). So now I am on the hunt for some trousers that don't suffer the same fate when they get moist and glide, rather than stick! I expect these wont come at the same bargain basement price as the Craghoppers Kiwi trousers but that's a price I'm prepared to pay (never has a phrase been so suitable).
