Taken from the regatta site:
The Regatta Mens Action Trousers are our mens’ Outdoor Classics best selling, hard wearing technical trouser. They have stood the true test of time. Cut with a lifestyle relaxed fit from quick drying polycotton fabric with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to block out rain showers. They are packed with handy pockets, including ones with concealed zip fastenings for peace of mind, plus have reinforced knee patches for added durability. Versatile, practical and great value thousands upon thousands of people agree.
Regatta Mens Action Trousers – Review
They are lightweight and quite thin when you first try them on and I must admit I was a little worried that this would mean I’d be cold wearing them, but they are surprisingly wind proof, and so far I’ve felt warm enough in them, although the test will be how warm they are when the temperature really drops, but so far they are ideal Spring and Autumn trousers (more on summer in a moment).
Every Day Wear
Durability is something that only time will tell on but the reinforced knee patches make me think that area will be OK. Although I have to say I prefer a riveted button to a stitched on one, such as these trousers have, and feel I may well end up having to reattach this at some point.
The number of pockets are great, mums have handbags (generalisations aside) and dads well we need pockets! and these trousers certainly cover us better than jeans would.
I’ve yet to experience rain in them, typical of UK weather it rains all summer then the one time you want a bit there is none around, but even if they don’t stand up to light showers that makes them no worse than any other non waterproof trousers I own, and they are quick drying so it won’t take long to dry out even if the water repellent fabric isn’t as stated (I’ll provide an update at a later date).What’s more they go well with my Old Guys Rule T-Shirt and Berghaus Jacket.
Finally I’ve found a comfortable, affordable pair of everyday walking trousers. The Regatta Mens Action Trousers! Light weight and (allegedly) durable. Trousers I can wander the patch in, walk to work in, pick up my daughter in, but also head out into the hills without too much to worry about on my legs. Now if I could just find some new walking boots and other walking gear….Don’t forget to check out my other reviews on the Outdoor and Wildlife Product Reviews page.
