Description from Genus Performance Gardenwear

The original high-performance trouser for keen gardeners

Our very first high-performance gardening trouser, the Original is still managing to convince old-clothes wearers of the benefits of specially designed clothes for gardening. This stylish, durable and comfortable trouser offers a multitude of features that make gardening even more enjoyable.

The fit is relaxed and the cut designed specially for women.  The knee area is lined with a sandwich of neoprene and needlecord which is virtually invisible from the outside but which provides impact and water resistance when kneeling.  The flattering jodhpur cut at the back incorporates two seat panels lined with a water-resist fabric encased in needlecord, which eliminates the annoying “damp bottom” syndrome if you happen to sit on something wet.  A high waist at the back, lined in needlecord, keeps you warm and covered when bending.

The pockets are designed to make gardening more comfortable.  The hip pockets are lined with needlecord to give a warm cozy feeling to cold hands.  The stuff pocket at the back is great for gloves, string, seed packets, and the slightly elasticated edge binding means that nothing will fall out.  On the left thigh is a zipped pocket that’s a perfect size for your mobile phone.  The thigh pocket on the right is lined with Cordura, a stab-proof fabric, and is specially designed to carry your secateurs and even open knives in complete security.  No more worries about sharp points digging in or making holes in back jean pockets.

Other features include belt loops and a D-ring for keys, a synch to tighten the trouser legs so you can slip easily into wellingtons, and stylish details such as the Genus metal stud backed with ochre Alcantara and the Alcantara zip pull on the leg pocket.

The trousers are made from a lightweight stretch nylon for ease of movement, which is stain resistant, has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to stay dry in light showers, and is fast wicking to take moisture away from the body.  With easycare wash and quick drying properties, trousers dirty from a hard day’s gardening can be ready for action the next morning.
