A new review has been created: Keela Peru Trousers

*Competition Time - Details at the end*

A good pair of walking trousers can go a long way (ha, see what I did there? Honestly, I should get paid for this comedy gold…), but it’s tough to find the right trousers and it’s through trial and often expensive error that we find our preferred fit, style and design.

Elasticated waistband, thank god

The knees are also articulated, which means there is again, essentially spare fabric there designed to accommodate the bend of the knee. This combines in with the Stretch-Tec ideal to create a very generous and forgiving bit of clothing.

There are six pockets in total, the first one being a left side map pocket with a Velcro flap. It has a centre split which means that when empty, the pocket sits fairly flush to the leg, but if you fill it, the space expands inside thanks to...
