Eric Poolewrote a review of Fjallraven Sormland Tapered Trousers - Men's on December 11, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
The fashion world is a weird one. From fashion icons like Alexander Wang to advocates & activists like Yvon Chouinard, clothing isn't just "worn" as a purely functional item. There have been recent trends in the industry that have brought the term "heritage" in front of audiences. Whether you like the style of clothing from brands like FjallRaven or Filson, they make some interesting & durable products.
With that in mind, my goal in purchasing these pants was to abuse 'em the minute I got my hands on them, to see how the "FjallRaven" name stood up in the field. I zipped up the fly and tried on my size 33x32 Sormland's - hopped on the motorcycle for a trip to Moab.
The material for pants is lighter than expected, yet heavy enough for the normal camping abuse. The durability of the G-1000 fabric held up to it's claim of being wind resistant. I even rode in some rain storms, and the pants kept my legs nice 'n dry during & after. Can't wait to wax 'em up to regain all the cool water repellent properties.
