New walking trousers/shorts

Craghoppers' KIWI convertible walking trousers

Having bought a new waterproof jacket last week, I indulged myself by ordering a pair of Craghoppers' KIWI convertible walking trousers.

They're described as
  • Original fit
  • Classic walking trousers
  • 7 pockets, including 4 zipped
  • Mobile phone holder
  • Solar dry sun protection
  • Wash and wear
  • Smart dry water repellent
I'd say the cut is not traditional in that they are low-waisted, but, I'm generally pleased with the fit. I bought a size larger to allow for plenty of movement as well as comfort when sitting down.

Added bonuses
  • They convert easily into shorts
  • They were 62% cheaper from Amazon.
Short size is 2" too long when barefoot, but should be OK when I'm wearing boots.

Really looking forward to getting out and about again.
