“Canada – wild, untouched, vast landscapes – a destination many outdoor enthusiasts dream of visiting. And that’s where we wanted to go! My girlfriend and I set our sights on travelling across Canada. The trip was supposed to last at least one year. We wanted to hike through the forests, climb mountains, camp on lakes, see wild animals, feel free without a care in the world.
As always, I put my gear together meticulously: it had to be light, resistant, multi-functional and preferably made by a company committed to environmentally friendly products. The choice quickly fell on Maier Sports’ multi-functional Nil pants. Our planned stay of one year has now turned into 15 months. We’ve driven 30,000 km with the camper van – to the most remote places in Canada. We extended our route several times, followed recommendations from Canadians and wanted to get to know the country off the beaten tourist path.
Onwards, to the volcanoes in Guatemala and the pants are ready for use. The Acatenango volcano, towering 3,973 m, is just waiting to be climbed. The crater edge is icy cold (-2 °C). The wind whistles around our ears, but as they say, your legs won’t get cold – so very right! The pants are also wind-resistant. The campfire warms my body, sparks are spraying but I’m not worried as the pants can take it all! I’m excited looking at the Fuego volcano spewing lava. The earth is shaking under our feet.”
Thank you Maier Sports for this freedom
