Note to self.........don't peek under the kilt in the Blue Bell.


Brazen it out, Calluna
Tell 'em you were only looking so you could tell your friend!

I would, but I usually walk on my own!

I was showing my hubby this pants topic and it gave him a right good laugh - plus nods of understanding.
Myself.....I am going to opt for the Paramo ladies briefs, there is nothing worse than having trousers that wick and cotton knickers that don't.

well I'm glad my suffering is providing you with amusement - no seriously, Im pleased my chaffing has brought a smile.

Seam rubbing I think is the cause of my anguish. I will try a different pair of walking shorts. The ones that rub me are combat style and quite thick material.

Seam rubbing.

Is this an activity that bypassed me in my misspent youth? And, if so, would it have been preferable to trainspotting?

I have always used a small amount of Vaseline on the inside of my upper thighs (rubbed in well.... sorry ladies) on every long walking day, and have found it very successful against any chafing.

I always take a small tin of vaseline with me on long walks now. I had a terrible chaffing experience when doing the Sandstone Trail a few years ago - due to excess sweating caused by wearing a base layer under my walking trousers. It bloody hurt I can tell you!

I learnt a lot on that trail whistle
