When you put on a pair of outdoor trousers that are perfect for you, you never, ever, want to take them off. Instead, you’ll just sort of stand there, in stunned silence behind the changing room curtain, wondering how on Earth you ever lived without them. Love at first wear? It’s a tale as old as time.
However, much like finding ‘the one’, romantically speaking, tracking down your dream pair of hiking pants can be a long, drawn out, process where you hop miserably through a succession of unhappy “relationships” before eventually, and rather reluctantly, settling on a second-best choice because you’re tired of looking and really can’t be bothered to try anymore.
“The pants can be adjusted from full-length to three-quarters length…”
But what if we told you there was another way? An option that was sitting right under your very nose, if only you’d sit up and take notice.
Well, without further ado, let’s introduce you to the Runbold Pants from Mammut.
The Runbold is a super comfortable pair of hiking trousers, made from a tough, abrasion-resistant nylon material blended with a bit of Spandex. This has a four-way stretch to give the wearer great freedom of movement. Just what’s needed when you’re getting active in the outdoors.
They have a stylish, athletically-profiled, cut to them and come fully equipped with extremely practical zipper pockets. Special shoutout, while we’re on the topic of pockets, for the side pocket; a feature that’s practically begging to look after your maps for you.
A treatment to the fabric, meanwhile, provides the Runbold with good moisture management; meaning that these trousers possess the perfect characteristics combo of speedy drying and effective breathability. No nasty, environmentally hazardous chemicals are used in this process either. I.e. none of the PFCs you can often find in durable water repellents.
