Good hiking pants have to meet certain criteria to be able to offer the comfort required in the outdoors. The focus is on functionality, which is applied to specific features:
- Functional fabric
- Freedom of movement
Leg length and width are key for a good fit. For maximum freedom of movement, the perfect hiking pants have to be cut in such a way that they permit even larger steps or jumps. Moreover, preformed knees aid movement while walking, especially when bending the knees.
You will always find the right size for a comfortable fit at Maier Sports. You can choose from the classic sizes of S to XXL. But as everybody is different, the product range also includes short and long sizes. This way, longer and shorter legs also benefit and you will always find your perfect pants. Your pants should never be so long that they drag along the ground and never so short that they expose your ankles.
In addition to the actual size and the long and short versions, you can also choose between Regular Fit and Slim Fit.
Good hiking pants are made using a breathable functional fabric.
Blended fabrics, such as polyamide/spandex or polyester/spandex, are normally used to achieve a high level of functionality. These materials also play a part in the next feature: weather resistance. A water-repellent finish is important to make it really perfect. It allows rain and mud to simply drip off the outside and the legs to stay nice and dry. All Maier Sports products have a PFC-free finish, and are therefore environmentally friendly.
