The search for pants...

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).

Like yourself, I've been a longtime wearer of Kiwis, fopr just about everythinh from walking through decorating to gardening. I'm not sure they can ever be completely destroyed.

Feeling adventurous, I treated myself a few months back to a pair of Montane Terra 'pants'. I've been very happy with them and subsequently purchased a second pair. They're not bargain basement price but 'Go Outdoors' do them for £63 after discount.

Ideally, I'd like one more accessible pocket but that's my only gripe (they don't have a cargo pocket on the thigh). One thing, though: try some on before you buy; I would never have guessed the size I needed based on purchases from other brands, or even other items I've bought from Montane.
