Got a pair of these recently for a good price. For a pair of trousers with the brand name 'stealthgear' they are not that quiet! I like the moleskin style material and all the pockets. I also like the elasticated 'gaiter' style lining that will help stop ticks crawling up your ankles and the extra padding. The canvass panels on the inside of the lower legs make a scratching noise if they meet and the mesh inside makes it feel like your trousers are full of tescos bags and I can imagine would make a similar noise if they were. Having read a few comments saying they suited summer weather I have worn them on several outings now with temperatures in the high 20's. Although they have zip vents on the sides I think a simple pair of cotton trousers or even thin moleskins would be preferable even on an average british summers evening. I will give them another go when the weather cools and I will look forward to testing them in the wet but I'm still a bit disappointed with the rustling.
