“GOOD TROUSERS ARE THE ONES YOU DONT NEED TO THIK ABOUT”
Henrik Andersson, Head of Design and Innovation, Fjällräven
The perfect trousers are intuitive, they don’t chafe and they’re comfortable. It’s as simple as that. And Fjällräven knows its trekking trousers. But why are there so many models? The answer is straightforward: we are all different. We have different physiques, our bodies have different needs, and we enjoy different activities. So, our trousers have to be different as well.
CHOOSING A PAIR OF TREKKING TROUSERS…
is the first step towards going on an exciting expedition. There is a jungle of models to analyze in the hunt for the pair that will suit you best, and according to Fjällräven’s Head of Design and Innovation Henrik Andersson, this is for good reason. We are all different, and so are the trekking activities we like to take part in.
WITH MORE THAN 60 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE,
Fjällräven continuously works on product development and improving the trekking trousers already on the market. Sometimes the results of this work are hard to see, but as Henrik says a good pair of trousers are ones that you do not need to reflect on. In fact, the most fundamental qualities a good pair of trousers can have are comfort in any situation, and durability in the face of wear and tear. Trouser fit and fabric are important to consider, because they impact how much freedom of movement you have. For instance, some trousers are better for moving quickly. Others are better for walking through terrain at a more leisurely pace. You also need to think about what kind of climate and terrain you will use your trousers in. Perhaps you need increased ventilation for hot and humid conditions, in which lighter and stretchy fabrics are better.
NOW, FJÄLLRÄVEN IS LAUNCHING SOME GREAT TROUSER NEWS…
for everyone considering spending time in the outdoors anytime soon. For instance, the new Abisko Trekking Tights Pro are a comprehensive update to the original Abisko Trekking Tights with regards to materials, construction, seams and functional details. Offering unmatched comfort and reliability on the trail using a compressive, quick-drying fabric made from recycled polyester and abrasion resistant Cordura stretch, these will probably become your new best friend on almost any outdoor activity.
WARM WEATHER CONDITIONS…
are the new Keb Agile trousers’ area of expertise, with their tapered fit and combination of four-way stretch in recycled polyamide and G-1000 Air Stretch. They introduce a new level of comfort and functionality in warm weather conditions. Keb Agile trousers are developed for extra agility and reliability during activities like trekking or hiking. With the new tapered fit, reducing the distractions of bulky fabric, and the hybrid construction combining four-way stretch in recycled polyamide and G-1000 Air Stretch, it will turn your hike or trek into a very comfortable one. Finally, the choice of trousers we make also has to take body shape into account. Everybody’s body is unique, but regardless of your height, weight or build, there will be a pair of trousers with a fit perfect for you. So choose wisely and you’ll find a reliable and comfortable longtime companion for all your outdoor activities!
