Let's start from the beginning, I have an low waistline to leg length ratio, so had to shorten the waistline myself; but don't take this as a blemish to the trousers, this is a procedure I have done to almost all of the trousers in my wardrobe. The waistline itself is elasticated and has a total of ~10cm free play without losing tightness, which adds some much needed comfort when scrambling over limestone boulders. There is also some extra length in the hem (where your walking boots go) so that they can be lengthened if necessary.
The material is very hard wearing, and has survived scree runs, barbed wire, attack from thick thorny vegetation, river crossings, stray knives, stabbings from tent pegs, and the odd inquisitive sheep, without showing a scratch. Pen ink, however, will stain the lighter colour trousers - although, with repeated washing, the stain will fade. Mud and blood is no problem for the trousers, and washes out in a normal wash with normal washing powder. With repeated washing, the fabric will not bobble.
The legs are wide and roomy, meaning that they are not constrictive at all. Even when wet, the trousers are comfortable enough to walk extended distances (~16 km) in.
Pockets........... It's fair to say these trousers have "enough" pockets - they have 9 very generous pockets. About A5 (paper) size, they're definitely large enough for a point & shoot camera (in fact, each pocket could fit 2 cameras - 3 if you're good at Tetris).
Zips - I know it's an obscure review topic, but zips are the silent killer of most trousers. The Regatta Action Trousers, however, have very good quality zips. They are generic, but are YKK quality, and the plastic zip strap is chunky - meaning that the teeth are very unlikely to collide and be ripped out.
The bottom line - You can't ask for more from these trousers, they look smart, are extremely rugged & comfortable, and can be easily tailored by anyone with a sewing needle and thread.
Only the back pockets, and the leg pocket now have a zip. The triple pockets at the front, two of which had zips have gone. Where are you now supposed to securely stow loose change or your wallet.
I have however, now found an alternative - Champion Mens Wenlock Trousers - These have 6 zipped pockets, and a zipped cargo pocket.
Sorry Regatta - You simplified the design to cut the manufacture costs by too much....
I did have to order long legs length because standard not available.
With some of that iron on stuff I shortened them and the are light and comfortable to wear.
Will update should they disappoint in the future.
Worn them for walking the dog had to get long legged ones so used iron stuff failed at least on one pair and I had to re-do them.
The other thing is they have three pockets at the front all on top of each other so use them for separating stuff and only fill as if you have only one. they will come un-stitched as mine did if you try to stuff them with more stuff.
They do have a rather uncomfortable crutch stitching but eventually got used to them.
In conclusion work OK but will try something dearer next time.
Actually not really worth purchasing, The pockets split and they are uncomfortable in all the wrong places.
Now sent to be turned into rags for charity.
I have two issues with them though so I have knocked off a couple of stars.
Issue one- The loops for a belt are really quite narrow so not many of my belts fit.
Issue two- The rear pockets are cavernous but the zip up opening is actually quite narrow. I've got my hand stuck in them before.
So I you have very small hands and plan on using no belt (or a very thin one) these could be perfect for you. Personally I wouldn't buy them again.
