I will not try to hide my infatuation with Swedish gear. They just seem to know what they are doing. I love my Hilleberg tent and I want that quality in everything now. I was searching through some European gear sites and stumbled across the "Haglöfs Rugged Mountain Pant"
The company has an impressive history tracing it's roots back to 1914 and starting with back packs sold from a bicycle.
Here is a review from hiker in the UK
Any one try these?
