/ Tough trouser recommendations please
Montane Terra Alpine
Both non techy looking, i.e no patchy knees and the like
Haglofs Mid Fjell pant. Awesome.
Wickes have scruffs work trousers on special offer at the moment. I bought some for diy, got them home and decided they were too good for that. Thick tough synthetic material, reinforced knee, diamond crotch. Just the job £20 with knee pads included for those nasty off widths
Jeans. By Simond, available from Decathlon.
I use the combats sold by Asda. Solid, comfy, warm, and £5 for the cheap ones and £10 for the expensive ones (or thereabouts).
Lose their colour at speed - the ones I've got on now are decidedly very grey - but I've been climbing in them and their two identical friends for two years, inside twice a week and outside on grit most weekends March-October, and there's no sign of wearing through. ..
