Except obviously Decathlon's stretch climbing 'jeans' at less than 1/2 the price are probably better.

> even down the local boozer

Do you mean the local circus, Paul? Only in S7 would you get away with wearing bright yellow, baggy trousers in the pub .

And IMHO if you drink beer trousers without a fly aren't that great a choice for 'down the boozer'.

Seems like climbing trousers these days are all super-expensive tracky-bottoms. Surely a fly and a zip pocket to put stuff like car keys in you don't want to leave in your bag aren't too much to ask for.

What a disappointment, I was hoping to attire myself like either Harry or Dick Solomon!

There's always room for improvement. I am quite impressed by the revolutionary design though, as it covers both legs at the same time.

A nice review but seams fray; 'freyed' is a mis-spelling.
In reply to UKC/UKH Gear: What's the point of organic cotton, anyone? Is it just another excuse to add 15% to the price - like calling something "artisan".

Isn't it that you don't have to feel so crap about having *^%$ed up the Aral Sea? http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/WorldOfChange/aral_sea.php

In reply to Frank the Husky:

Cotton is reckoned to use about 25% of the worlds insecticides and about 10% of the total artificial fertilisers in its production. It only takes up about 3% of the worlds total agricultural area though so the organic production methods is supposed to help reduce these numbers and help the environment.
