Since the revival of leggings, adventurous women have been wearing them hiking and trekking. Trekking trousers have their place of course. They will keep you warm and dry in rainstorm. But as leggings fans will know, they not only offer a fitted modern look, but also allow excellent manoeuvrability and breathability. A standard pair of leggings however are no good for trekking. They aren’t made from sweat-wicking or water-resistant material, and most crucially they don’t have any pockets.
With this in mind, Haglofs have developed the perfect pair of hiking leggings called Trekkings. They are designed like a sleek pair of softshell pants but fit like leggings, thanks to the stretchy FlexAble fabric. Made from polyamide and elastane, FlexAble allows you to move easily without fear of tearing your trousers. It doesn’t matter if you are scrambling over boulders or climbing granite rock faces, Haglofs’ Trekkings have got you covered.
“These are versatile and stylish without compromising technical quality.”
FlexAble also offers protection against the elements. The Trekkings are wind-resistant, breathable and rainproof with a durable water-repellent coating. This coating is fluorocarbon-free, so you don’t have to worry about your pants damaging the environment. In fact, Haglofs put a huge amount of thought and energy into minimising their impact on the planet.
The Trekkings are stamped with Haglofs own TakeCare logo, which means they are made from recycled materials. They are also BlueSign approved, so you can be sure these trousers were made without harmful substances and the raw materials were handled in good ethical working conditions.
One of the best features of the Trekkings are the pockets. You can keep keys, snacks or suncream stashed in here, great for sunny days when you aren’t wearing a jacket. They look like a pair of skinny jeans, but the leg has a zippered gusset which allows you to pull your trousers over boots if needed.
