Why we chose the Aceh Pants: Technical design, zippered pockets, athletic fit.
Based in South Korea, Blackyak started making clothing for climbers and alpinists during the 1970s. It’s only recently that they have introduced their products into the European market. The Aceh Pants are a versatile, medium weight pair of technical trousers. They’re designed to be tough enough to cope with nicks and scrapes on sharp rocks, whilst still providing the level of comfort and manoeuvrability demanded on big alpine adventures.
Who Are The Aceh Pants For?
Anyone who enjoys climbing, scrambling, or moving over rocky terrain will appreciate the tough fabrics and technical fit of the Aceh Pants. They would be a perfect choice for summer mountaineering in the Alps or climbing in the UK. But even those with less ambitious plans still wouldn’t find them overkill for general day-hiking in most UK three season conditions. If worn underneath a pair of lightweight waterproof over trousers, you would have a flexible layering system ready to cope with almost anything outside of deep winter.
