Which 'type A' Trousers?

I'm sure this comes up repeatedly so sorry.
My trousers are pretty much done and it's time for a new pair. I have worn Stihl HiFlex for a while now and they've been great, hard wearing, comfy etc. Maybe a bit heavy but it's what I'm used to.
I climb alot but do my fair share of time on the ground.
What would you suggest?? Thanks

Engelbert Strauss trousers.

Had mine a month now and I love them... For 120 they're a bargain!

They have a zip behind the knee for ventilation and they really do keep you cool.

Also come in long length... Which is essential for me! :-)
