“I am a Flight Test Engineer with AgustaWestland Helicopters in the UK and from January to April this year, I was in Minnesota doing cold weather testing when I bought a pair of Mountain Khakis from Trailfitters in Duluth.
Since then I have worn them virtually continuously, except when: -
4. It’s been too HOT
5. My wife has dragged them off me, because they were too dirty!
They are incredibly comfortable and in my short ownership they have been with me everywhere, including Snowmobiling in Minnesota, Hiking in the Welsh mountains, Jungle Trekking in Malaysia, (thereby washed – accidently - in the Straits of Malacca) and been in and around grubby Helicopters more times than I like to think. In fact, the guys at work think I only own one pair of trousers.
They have a magnetic attraction (or maybe it’s just me) for Gearbox Oil, Hydraulic Fluid and Mud and each time that reaches an unacceptable limit, my wonderful wife does some magic with some Industrial De-Greaser, a deep-cycle washing machine and a flat-iron!
Next time I see them they look BRAND NEW! There is not a mark on them, nowhere are they done scuff and I don’t think they have faded at all (incidentally, Malaysia is a fantastic country, but the climate has ruined my ordinary clothes)!
Very many thanks, John ”
