Trouser Twists

How do you use them? I can’t quite figure it out…

Just use elastic bands…

They come with instructions written in all the NATO languages.

Have you not got them?

Dead easy.

Pull your trouser leg up. Wrap the twist around your boot about a inch or so above the ankle and hook the hooks together. Pull the trouser leg down and just scrunch the bottom of the trouser up underneath the twist.

Make sure you loop them round your leg twice before hooking the ends together. It should be quite tight.


Twice?! Are you mental?

Yeah he is. Twice isn’t going to hold unless you’ve got fat legs. I go for three times.

Children, play nice.

If you have skinny legs like RAS, it has to be 4 times at least.


I’ve never bothered with them in 27 years. Just use the ties that are sown in the bottom of the trousers.
