I must be honest, when I first read the name of the zip offs, I had a flashback to the holidays of my youth – canvas; scratchy, heavy, especially when wet, smells a bit (maybe it was just our tent?). So I was thrilled (and a bit relieved) when these zip-off trousers arrived for Luke. Firstly, they are super-soft and lightweight, ideal for summer, especially when they’re zipped off. The adjustable waistband rocks – Luke is average height, but under 9th centile for weight (he doesn’t get that from me!) and a lot of trousers fall down, but these don’t. They wash and dry really well, which is another bonus for grubby boys. I can see these getting a lot of use this summer on the beach.
Ollie Octopus makes a beautiful, cheerful applique – Luke is a big fan and so am I. Like all our Frugi gear, it has washed and dried really nicely and -yey- doesn’t need ironing….very environmentally friendly.
