Trousers: Sprayway Mori Combi Pant
Here's a dilemma: do you wear trousers that look great and carry a pair of shorts in your bag, or do you sacrifice a bit of the style to wear a pair of trousers with legs that zip off to leave a pair of shorts? Personally I'd go for the latter every time. The number of occasions I've been caught out in trousers, but felt the need to don shorts with a change in the weather is numerous. In the Mori Combi, Sprayway have even made the main pockets plenty big enough to stow the zipped off leg sections if you are out without a bag to put them in. The zips are cleverly directional so that each leg section will only fit one of the two opposing zips on the shorts. Sounds simple, but with my last pair you had to squint your eyes (the zips are generally tiny on such trousers to lessen interference in use) to read an 'L' or an 'R' on a hidden label in order to pair them up.
What else is there about the Mori Combi? Made from bamboo they are lightweight (370g), quick drying, and environmentally friendly to boot. There are six pockets - 2 main, 2 on the bum, and 2 fastenable square ones on the front, lower than the main ones. My one complaint would be that there could do with being a couple more belt loops. It's At £40 they are not inexpensive, but when you consider that you get a pair of trousers and a pair of shorts for the money I'd say it was money well spent.
