The stretch hiking pants have a slim modern look but still fit over a base layer. They allow free movement. The recommended fabric is perfect for all kind of cooler outdoor activity days. The additional length covers your ankles when you lift your legs to prevent your trousers from sliding above your boots, and small debris or stones getting into your shoes.
The basic sewing pattern for women includes a gusset, shaped knees and the elastic waistband is 4 cm wide (1.5") with belt loops. The bi-elastic main fabric used for these pants allows a slimmer cut for the pattern and the possibility to add butt, knee and hem reinforcements made from a 4-way-stretch Kevlar® fabric.
Recommended main fabrics: Stretch-Polyamide with Coolmax® including 10% lengthwise & 5% crosswise stretch or Softshell with Merino wool (no membrane) for more extreme demanding activities where high breathability is needed including 10% lengthwise & 15% crosswise stretch.
Recommended reinforcement fabrics: Stretch Kevlar®/polyamide-blend.
Both main fabrics are bi-elastic and hard-wearing from the outside and very soft and breathable from the inside. The Kevlar®/polyamid-blend is tear-, heat- and abrasion-resistant and perfect for reinforcements in combination with the Polyamide blend.
