The type of leg wear that is most suited to your needs is going to be dictated firstly by conditions. Obviously shorts are great for warm, dry conditions when you're not suffering from sun burn, whilst trousers suit most other cases. Cotton fabrics tend to suit warm dry conditions too, and feature in our casual and summer cragging wear ranges.
The majority of our trousers are poly-cotton, as this mix provides a good level of comfort from the cotton and a good degree of wicking, quick drying and durability from the man-made fibres.. The designs of most of these products is casual, and ideal for travel and less demanding outdoor use. They come in a variety of leg lengths, and there is a model with zip-off legs for men and for women. There is also a warm microfibre-lined winter trouser that's great for the colder months.
Old-school climbers will already know and love the classic Troll Omni Pants. They are comfy, and easy to move in, great for climbing, bouldering, and lazing about, not to mention very light and quick drying. We stock the Omni Guide version which has re-inforced contrasting coloured knee patches giving a mountain guide look to them.
Technical mountaineering trousers in the main utilise man-made fibres for light weight, quick drying, wind resistance and durability.
Thicker and more durable climbing and mountaineering options can be found in the Soft Shell Clothing section.
Last but not least we have the old favourite, Ron Hill Tracksters. These are still popular, and still the bottoms of choice for runners, but also often seen on walkers and climbers all over the country. The kid's version can be found here too.
