It's not actually a bad pair of trousers but, compared to what they used to be like, just not as good. Still the same "generous" cut as the old version.I certainly wouldn't pay full price for it! so, what's changed?

Pro:
* Wider belt loops. Makes it easier to insert and remove belt; makes it easier to use a wider belt if required -- and it is!

Con:
* Light-weight belt webbing. This means that, under tension, it distorts so it is like a piece of cord; uncomfortable.
* The bars on the "male" bit of the belt buckle are inadequate and break under tension.
* Shallow pockets. They've reduced the depth of the hip pockets (as measured from the bottom of the slit opening) from 14cm to 8cm. Even handkerchiefs fall out just from normal walking around. This renders the unzipped pocket worse than useless; the zipped one is just about tolerable.

Frankly, given that the cost of an item like this is mostly in the labour, not the fabric, it is royally idiotic to reduce the quality of what was once a very good product just to save a few square centimetres of fabric. Irritating decision!

Edit, 2014 Jan 01: The stitching on the cargo pocket is beginning to come undone. This is unacceptable for something that is only 8 months old and is probably a consequence of cheap manufacturing and poor quality control: I have two other pairs of Craghopper trousers, both of which I have had since 1999; one of them has been really badly abused (caving, sailing, etc), but the pocket stitching is still intact.

I've been wearing Craghopper Kiwi trousers for about the last 10 years and seldom wear anything else, the generous cut allows for total freedom of movement, the material is great for all seasons- quick drying and hard wearing. Having just ordered a couple of new ones I was amazed to discover that the design that has been tried and tested over the years has been abandoned, and is superseded by altering the tailoring around the crotch area and reducing the width of the thighs by 7 cm. The result is that they have designed the legs to be too tight, and the pockets which were quite generous, have now been reduced so much as to be useless. Craghopper, you have lost the plot and a regular customer.

I love craghopper products, I had hats, shirts, fleeces, shorts and several pairs of trousers (13 in all).
I decided to replace my Craghopper Kiwi's classic with new pairs, the old ones were still in good condition but were showing their age.
I sadly lost all my gear in a house explosion and was about to replace all the things that I have lost (everything).
So I bought a new pair which arrived today. Black 34in short leg.
Huge, huge disappointment. What have they done?
The material is much lower quality, the fit is terrible, I could barely get them on. I have been wearing Craghopper shorts all Summer long.
All my old Kiwi's fitted perfectly.
The new style pockets are so shallow I cannot get my whole hand into them and I can see that things will fall easily out of them. The crotch is too high now and looks awful when worn. The seat is too snug and just from flexing I can tell the seams will just tear when out on the mountains.
I am not built like a marathon runner but more along a sprinters build. Craghoppers always were a wonderful fit and such good quality.
No more! Bring back the old cut, materials and quality and I will keep buying. I will purchase no more if they remain like this.
Such a huge shame as it was once a great company with quality you could rely on.

Just adding to the points made by others ...

I also have been buying Craghoppers Kiwi's for years and this latest pair are a big change from the ones I already have. Poorer materials, poor stitching and poorer design.

As I write this I'm on a trip and the stitching on one of the front zip pickets has failed. The zip is just peeling away from the trousers. I'll have to make a bodge field repair and then pay to have them fixed properly when I get home.

Trust is such a precious and valuable thing. If Craghoppers wanted to try a down market cheaper version of the Kiwi they should have given it a new name like Kiwi-Lite. As it is they have tarnished a really valuable and (until now!) trusted brand. Previously I have ordered Kiwi brand trousers with great confidence that I'll get a good product ... no longer. I won't be buying from Craghoppers again for fear they'll pull the same bait and switch trick again. Unless, perhaps, if they come clean about this blunder, promise not to do it again, then maybe when I need more travel gear I'll think about them again. But I'm not holding my breath.

I have worn dozens of pairs of kiwi trousers in the past and have found them excellent. Unfortunately Craghoppers have now ruined this once fine product.It looks like penny pinching in extreme.The cut is now mean.The fabric has become like tissue.The front pockets are now so shallow as to be useless.The waistband has lost a layer of fabric..There are fewer belt loops.The webbing of the belt is now feeble.They call them trousers but they are now flat.They used to have a front crease and looked quite smart.The now look like pyjama bottoms.Overall they are now a shabby product.I have brand new pairs from previous years in storage and can compare them directly.They are like chalk and cheese.They still dare to call them classic.That is an affront to the trade description act.I Know its a bit nerdy but I weighed old and new pairs and found the new ones are 150 grams less.This is twenty percent and therefore they can now get five pairs made instead of four.I think they will lose far more customers than they gain.For certain they have lost me.There are now better products by other manufacturers, so go to them.
