I decided to purchase these trousers about a week ago from Greenman Bushcraft, and so far they have been the best buy I have made in a while.
The fabric is strong, yet still flexible, which makes a nice change. They also seem to resist hot sparks better than some other brands out there. So they are ideal for bushcraft and fire lighting.
They seem to breath well too, and dry pretty quickly if you happen to get them wet. So far I rate them very highly, as I do the service of where I got them from www.greenmanbushcraft.co.uk .
They are not cheap (although £75 is much lower than some places) but they are worth every penny!
I used these pants exclusively this summer when I hiked through Söderåsens National Park in Skäralid, Sweden. These pants are extremely durable, the G-1000 fabric is very tear-resistant, and kept me warm and dry under windy and rainy conditions. To make the pants even more water resistant you can impregnate the pants with Greenland Wax.
The pants have seven pockets conveniently located, and there is a great front pocket that is a perfect fit for a Swiss Army knife. The G-1000 fabric will also offer you first-class UV protection which is an added benefit. These pants demonstrate the Swedish excellence in design and functionality.
My only regret is that I had to travel to Sweden to buy them. I can't find them to purchase, not even online, in the USA.
