Icelanders or Winter Bags. I think that if you are looking for a pair of trousers that will take the wear and tear of winter walking, I would recommend the Icelanders. They have a much tougher outer fabric (polyamide canvas – even harder wearing than cordura!) than the winter bags and as you have already said, a more roomy fit, also more ideal for walking. But saying this, we have made the winter bags for many many years and will probably continue doing so as they are a firm favourite for many Rohan regulars. Personally I would choose the Icelanders, easier to fit…they will fit even if i’ve had too much pudding! Hope this helps. Christeen (Manager at Rohan Keswick)
