Why the choice of your hiking pants is important
The environment hiking takes place in requires obvious pieces of equipment such as hiking boots or trekking poles. However, the technical quality of hiking apparel, notably pants should not be neglected, to the risk of making it hard to enjoy your hike. Hiking can be an intense activity depending on the steepness, weather or season. Research in materials offering ever more performance allows nowadays to find models which are warm, waterproof, breathable, lightweight, abrasion resistant or even pants which can be turned into shorts. They share the common trait of offering great freedom of movement, but some are more breathable for summer, more water repellent for versatility or feature a fleece lining to be warmer. You can also find softshell hiking pants, ensuring a windproof effect and water resistance, while being insulating. Models for seasoned or leisure hikers, for every taste, use or season are available at Glisshop.
