/ Norrona Svalbard flex1 Pants
Is the fit quite slim?
Main concern is they won't we warm/water resistent enough for winter use. How do the perform in cold and wet enviroments?
In reply to the q's - No, they're not especially slim. And , if they are the softshell trousers that I'm thinking of (there is a Norrona shop locally) they will be marginal in winter if you think you're going to be wet a lot.
TobyA; Craigdon mountain sports has been selling them for a while.
Cheers for the reply WBO, these are the model- http://www.norrona.com/Products/0221-09/svalbard-flex1-pants-m is that what you were thinking of?
Yeah, I have. Actually they are pretty slim, but more straight leg with not too much excess material, rather than 'fitted'. They're very stretchy, which is a good thing. They keep out the wind pretty well. I use them mostly for walking and climbing in non-winter months, but I've used them recently with thermals underneath and been pretty happy.
They're great. I'd buy another pair deffo.
