These are excellent quality outdoor trousers and they are identical to the trousers Bear usually wears in his TV programmes. They are made of a lightweight but flexible and strong material to a really high specification. I always check the sewing and seams in outdoor trousers (because I have found that quality varies considerably between the top popular manufacturers) and I found the workmanship in these trousers to be excellent. The seams are all perfect and there are no loose threads etc.
The material itself is a kind of dark grey base with the famous black knee patches. The trousers also feature on orange BG logo on the left leg. I bought them for a 5 year old Bear Grylls fan and he absolutely adores them as they make him feel just like Bear. Since he got them he cannot wait to put them on and get out in the hills for long walks. He also likes to wear them out to play with his mates and since he got them a couple of other kids have appeared there wearing them as well!
The trousers are really easy to wash. No matter how muddy they get all you have to do is stick them in a standard 40 degree wash and they come out as good as new every time. They are not waterproof, so you do need over trousers in wet conditions, but if they do get wet they dry very quickly.
The sizing is more or less exactly what I expected. I bought the 5-6 years size for a 5 year old and they are a really good fit.
In my opinion these are great outdoor/general play trousers for any young Bear Grylls fan. It is also worth noting that there is a matching range of other clothes as well such as BG tee-shirts and fleeces. They are all colour co-ordinated and they go together really well. Overall if you want to buy a child an outfit that looks really cool but is also practical and good value then this range is for you.
