The organic cotton canvas fabric is super comfy but incredibly tough under abrasionideal for the infamous sandpaper effect of gritstone crags. Blended with a small amount of spandex, the Kraft are pretty darn stretchy too, easily passing the ‘foot-next-to-your-face-heel-hook’ test.

The thicker central rear belt loop is ace for attaching your chalk bag and a zipped thigh pocket is ideal for stashing your keys or cards so you don’t lose them when you're bouncing about/hanging off overhangs.

Care & Environmental Advice

Product Care Information

Like your favourite pair of jeans, these trousers will feel tighter straight out of the packet or washing machine but: DON’T PANIC - they’ll relax a little as you wear them. To look after your Kraft, wash them inside out at 30°C with similar colours. Avoid using detergents and conditioners where possible. They'll soon smell of chalk and heather anyway.

Environmental considerations

The Kraft pants use organic cotton that is Global Organic Textile Standard-certified (GOTS). The GOTS is independently verified by a third party and is awarded to cotton that demonstrates a high level of environmental sustainability and ethical working practices.<br> Organic cotton farming is better for the soil, produces significantly less CO₂, uses less water and eliminates the use of harmful pesticides. And it feels great!

Fit Guide
Tight Slim Regular Relaxed
Close fitting designed to conform to your body shape. Slim and slightly contoured but not form fitting. A comfortable fit that's not too tight, nor too loose. A looser fit with a bit more space but not too baggy.
