They Were A Hopeful Choice
Bought these as replacement for my old heavily worn out/much loved 2 pairs of lightweight Craghoppers trousers that were brilliant and lasted very well. Like for like replacement not possible; a shame that constant changes to their range mean you have to risk a new style/name/textile mix.
After pondering for months the further price reduction made my mind up. Had to go up a waist size (slimmer fit) but good that short leg length still works (one of few makes where short is a good length).
Have worn them twice (7+ and 5+ hours) and am pretty happy so far. They were scraped on some rock with no bad effect, and took a heavy rain shower and had quite a bit of mud on them but they dried off quickly; pleased with that as it was a factor in choosing them. They feel robust and I'm feeling optimistic that they will prove a good purchase. I have also now bought a 2nd pair (albeit from elsewhere in a clearance sale).
Based on my early view, I'd recommend considering these trousers.
