    I purchased a pair of lightweight combat trousers from George at Asda , not specifically sold as work trousers but they are comfortable , hard wearing and not too baggy .

    I have tried loads of different trousers and i found the Army surplus are the best for hardwearing, lightweight and plenty of pockets

  • I use craghopper kiwi trousers. Light, durable roomy and can get them for £25 on line. A pair lasts me just under a season

      +1 -Cragghoppers. Lots of positives,comfortable, lightweight including ability to dry out V quick, otherwise Strauss trousers.

      Denim too hot when warm, heavy and slow to dry out when wet.

  • army style combat trousers plenty of pockets with flaps and buttons I find them at a market usually £10 to £15 last quite well and not that bothered if they get ripped as they are cheep to replace
