Good quality outdoor cargo/combat trousers.

#1
I'm looking for something to wear for my outdoor pursuits.

I bought from costco several years ago a really nice and well made set but they have since fallen apart and i don't live near it any more.

What do you recommend without breaking the bank?

Thanks,

Instinct

Hmmmm, it sounds like you need some sort of suit.

Durable? Hmmm. Shell is durable. I know:

Sluggy's wardrobe is full of ones like that. you should ask her where she nicked - er, where she bought hers.
At a guess, some Gypo in Darlo?! I lost count at the amount of Cart racing, same heads I blew away in my 2.0L Diesel Golf on the A66.

on a serious note, my last few pairs have come off Ebay. perfectly good quality and cheap as chips.

Where abouts on ebay or is it just a case of search and see what comes up?

It might help if you defined 'outdoor pursuits' which can range from burying the remains of your latest trophy item at 03.30 in the woods to having a crack at the Old Man of Hoy in the wet.

For general outdoor graft, not the cheapest but they take some stick...

Hiking, sailing, cycling and so on. Not exactly taxing but not what matalans finest will stand up for long with.

There are some good bits of kit to be found in T K Maxx but you have to know what you are looking for and you also have to go in T K Maxx in the first place - which can be a bit of a downer.

The Helikon SF trousers in beige or coyote brown are a good quality with the ability to add an insert knee pad (padding from old UBACS). You can pick the up from £25-£30.

I usually find typing the name of what I'm looking for into the search field and then going through the results works for me. ;)

CRAGG HOPPERS KIWI Range, cheap as chips and available from COSTCO's and most retail villages i.e. the one in Swindon,

DICKIES are being phased out in Wickes stores and available cheap in the discount bins, also available in Halfords,

Wickes have a new range of clothing which seems to be better quality than the Dickies stuff,

Cotton Traders do a heavy weight trouser,

I've had a pair of Jack Wolfskin cargo trousers for about a year now. They're dead light and they dry in minutes. A bit expensive at €85, but you get what pay for.

I wear Dickies at work and they've survived a few scraps, so can vouch for the hard wearing.
