What a pair of Duds!
"Duds" being slang for pants. I recently took these over to the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. Their light weight and low storage volume allowed me to comfortably throw them into a carry on backpack for the plane. At 6'2 and 240, clothes take up alot of space, but not these. After putting them on on Day 2, they became the staple wear for the rest of the trip. The lined waist and the tough stretch material make these pants ridiculously comfortable for both hiking and travelling. The resistance to water proved very useful during the Australia/Russia match when rain poured for the entire second half and into the evening. With thermals underneath, walking 3 miles in the rain to dinner was not an issue. My only issue would be the pocket placement felt a little strange at first, but as soon as the backpack went on, it made perfect sense. So I repeat..What a pair of Duds.
