    WS Activity Trousers

    Just received a pair of Activity Trousers from the World Scout Shop and I'm quite impressed. The gold zips are a bit cheap and nasty but the fit is, for me at least, much better than the 'official' UK product and they have a natty logon on the leg. Will give them a few weeks to see how they wash, but may well go back to get another pair...

    I tend to stick with Craghoppers as they are good quality and if you keep an eye out for offers can be half the price of the Scout Shop stuff.
    To get more kids we need more adults - are we getting the message yet?

    Interesting given as far as I am aware the World Scout Shop is run by the UK Scout Shops

    I'll stick to M&S blue activity trousers, comparable in price with scout shops and you can turn them into shorts for THE summers day we get a year.

    Does anybody do a leader shirt which comes in more normal sizes than the scout shop?

    Agree with Craghoppers. Most of the time tho' I use Dickies work trousers which stand up well to all the grief they get from my various activities and are cheap enough that if they get covered in paint or worse I'm not too much out of pocket.
