FIT AND COMFORT IN MOVEMENT
These trousers have a slim fit with an elasticated waistband treated with silicone. Use of stretch fabric, preformed knees and a gusset at the crotch enabling maximum freedom of movement.
The synthetic, lightweight fabric wicks away perspiration towards the outside of the fabric. To guarantee this, we test it in the laboratory using several standardised tests. All our hiking trousers have a performance of 3/5
Drying time measures a fabric's capacity for drying quickly after being wet, according to a standardised protocol.
We have reduced our environmental impact on this product
These trousers optimise consumption and the weight of the main component. This reduces the environmental impact of this product. As a result, we were able to reduce the carbon footprint by 23% compared to the previous model.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is produced. For these trousers, we were able to use this method for the black components and we are considering using it for the other colours.
