These trousers appear to be very well made, and I expect them to be able to last a while. They are also a comfortable fit. They are let down by the pockets, firstly, there are simply not enough of them, and not enough secure, (ie zipped) ones. One on the leg, and one at the back is all you get of those. Also,the main two front pockets are described as 'large volume cargo style', but in fact they are quite tight, and rather shallow. I previously owned a much cheaper pair of Regatta trousers that had much more useful deeper pockets, and another deep zipped pocket accessed through the right front 'normal' one, plus two at the back. Admittedly, they were not as well made as these, but still, in my opinion the lack of secure carrying ability restricts these trousers practicality for travellng.
