    Women's Trousers

    By Jennifer Mullen

    If you regularly read our blog, you’ll likely have noticed by now that trousers are right at the top of our “most important list”. Whether you are hiking up a hill, camping by a lake or out for a stroll, you’ll want a pair of trousers that protect you against the weather, wick away moisture and release excess heat, all while at the same time allowing you to move around freely.

    That is quite a lot of work that one pair of trousers needs to accomplish. Therefore, it is super important to get the right fit, to make sure that all the fantastic features that go in to a good pair of trousers can do their job properly. For women, getting the right fit can sometimes be more of a challenge since we vary a lot more in shape than most men. Thankfully there are a range of different fits to accommodate all shapes and sizes.

    Thoughtful design

    By Jennifer Mullen

    If you look at the history of a lot of the brands we sell, you will notice a recurring theme – almost all of them were started by people who wanted to improve the clothing and equipment they used for their own adventures and activities outdoors. This compassion and desire to use the products themselves meant, and still means, that extra care and consideration of the end use is always in mind during the design process, making the products not only durable but thoughtful and functional to the highest level.
