FOR years I wore long johns when in the hills in winter. Then they were re-named “base layers”, which sounds much more modern.
But having worn these thermal-lined Mountain Warehouse trousers my days of men’s tights, or whatever they are, are over.
They’ve been toasty and perfect for any outdoor use – from watching rugby to walking the mountains of Highland Perthshire and the Cairngorms in icy weather.
Although bulkier than my usual togs they’re no less flexible. One thing, they’re not as quick drying as the label suggested.
