DUER Mens Performance Denim
DUER are something a little different for Nordic Outdoor and have created something we’re really excited about. Hailing from Vancouver the brand focus on fabric innovation to create a range of trousers and denims which blur the lines between outdoor and fashion.
The performance denim are the cornerstone of DUER’s range – showcasing a performance fabric with a modern fit. The slim fitting denims are constructed from a blend of cotton, coolmax and have a touch of lycra for added comfort. The fit and flexibility of the denim is enhanced thanks to the use of the brands signature gusset and four way power stretch.
Ideal for use in the outdoors the performance denim feature reinforced seams to create strength and longevity while the integration of coolmax fibres helps to wick moisture from the body in heat while insulating for warmth in the cold.

The Fjallraven Vidda Pro Trousers are a classic – and for good reason too. Constructed from the brands unique G-1000 fabric which is durable and water resistant these will last you for years on the trail.
The Vidda Pro Trousers will see you through any adventure this Summer and for added ventilation there is even the option of the Vidda Pro Ventilated. With six (that’s right, six) pockets, reinforced double layer fabric to the knees and rear and an opening for additional kneepads these are a rugged choice for your next adventure.
The iconic G-1000 fabric is one of the most adaptable fabrics on the market. Breathable and hard wearing the fabric can be adapted with the brands Greenland Wax to add further water resistance.
Our most popular women’s trouser has for years been the Fjallraven Abisko Trekking Tights and it’s not hard to see why. Constructed from a highly functional stretch fabric the Trekking Tights combine the freedom of movement of tights with the durability and build quality of trekking trousers.
While the functionality of these tights is undeniable it’s the fit that makes these the real winner. With a wide drawcord adjustable waist the stretch fabric provides a freedom of movement which won’t be seen on many other Trekking Trousers. While not water resistant the knees and rear feature additional reinforcement to resist moisture when sitting on damp ground and the Trekking Tights are a close enough fit to be worn comfortably under a pair of shell trousers in the heavy rain.
