New for this season, and kind of the strong silent type lurking shyly in the kitchen of the house that is Haglöfs trouser range. These are the Iguanas.
Fully stretch with a stack of nice features, mesh hip pockets, big thigh pockets and back pocket. Reinforced knees and inner ankle patches and a zipped gusset from ankle cuff to knee for ventilation or cinching in according to weather and whether you want to put your wellies inside or outside. Leg length and fit is typical technical Haglöfs, so a large fits me perfectly.
The material is their own FlexAble which I’m familiar with and works well. This version has silver in it alá X-Static, so ming should be kept under control on longer trips. It’s not totally windproof, so should be okay in warmer weather despite the darkness of hue.
I’ve worn them about the place for a few days and I really like them, techno combats. You could be Jimmy Bond in these if you weren’t wearing them with gaudily coloured trail shoes. Proper reports from hill use in a bit.
Belt is models own.
