Aclima Womens WoolNet Long Pants
Aclima's WoolNet Women's Long Pants offer the best combination of ventilation and insulation of any merino wool garment available. Ideal for use during varying levels of activity at any time of the year especially when you're likely to perspire a lot during excerise and then stop and rest such as during training or climbing the fells. The open structure means sweat can escape, but body heated air can be retained next to the skin.
Aclima WoolNet is a base layer for varying activity levels all year round.
The mesh construction of the WoolNet Women's Long Pants has a unique ability to transport moisture away from the skin and being made from wool they also provide good insulation. The product breathes when you are moving and insulates when you stop. The sides are rib knitted for comfort and to preserve the shape of the product. You also have shoulder panels which make it comfortable to wear a backpack.
On top of this it is body odour resistant and 100% recyclable.

Wool is a natural “high-tec” fibre and possesses a number of advantages, such as its ability to uptake and release moisture vapour up to 36% of its dry weight, while being water-repellent at the same time. Wool is a renewable resource, as you wait till the wool has grown back and then cut it again. It is also biodegradable because the hair is made up of proteins, which are yummy treats for insects and microbes.
