At last , a pair of BEIGE good fitting trousers with plenty of sensible deepish pockets, 3 with zips. Great for travel, light weight, easy to rinse through. I wear mine locally as well. I've been looking to replace an older similar pair from another manufacturer, but more recent models lack the sensible pockets; I also only like lighter colours esp. the light beige which coordinates well with my other trekking items. Easy to rinse so no problem if they do show any dirt (but mine don't!). Not sure about the size - I'm a 10/12 normally, but these are an 8 and fit me nicely....but no way am I an 8 really!!!!
