Craghoppers Stretch Kiwi Trousers - I used these last year in the Alps (above the snowline & mountaineering) and they were brilliant. No captured belt, but I used a Lowe Alpine belt and it did the job. Really good value too.
Thanks all, They itch on the top of the foot, I did get a sore between two toes but it didn't itch! The boots are thinsulate insulated and guess that’s the reason. I ware bridgedale liners and extremities socks over. I will try foot powder and foot balm. Andy, where can I buy the foot balm? thanks again
