Loyal companions - find the perfect pants for the mountain tour.


Fit determines the feel-good character. Especially this summer, many people are looking for relaxation while hiking. To ensure that nothing stands in the way of the perfect hiking holiday, the right clothing plays a decisive role. Here you will find tips on choosing the right outdoor trousers, so that nothing stands in the way of a movement-intensive mountain tour or hiking in the fresh air.

What must outdoor pants be able to do?

Many enthusiastic mountain sports enthusiasts ask themselves this question. The following characteristics are essential:

Freedom of movement through longitudinal and lateral elasticity

Thanks to the highly elastic and light material, the pants follow all movements without constriction.

The light, quick-drying Comfort Stretch Light with bi-elastic 2-way stretch is water and dirt repellent, dries quickly and is suitable for sporty mountain tours in pleasantly warm temperatures.

If you prefer something more robust, Active-Stretch light  trousers are the right companion. The hard-wearing, robust material impresses with its woven inner structure and optimum longitudinal and lateral elasticity. Although the material is slightly heavier, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages in the event of a fall or unintentional contact with bushes, branches or rocks. The robust materials protect and in the best case even prevent injuries. Outdoor pants made of Active-Stretch Light material are faithful companions for mountain sportsmen and women who want to reach high altitudes.

Ergonomically pre-shaped cut

An ergonomically pre-shaped cut is an advantage with all outdoor pants. This enables an optimised fit and more comfortable knee flexing. The trousers therefore adapt better to movements and fit perfectly.

High breathability

It is also important to make sure that the trousers are highly breathable so that air circulation is guaranteed even in sweaty conditions. This way the trousers lie comfortably light on the skin during a strenuous climb and a sticky feeling is avoided. In addition, unpleasant odours can be avoided when the trousers are used for several days.

Individual waistband solutions, depending on requirements and needs

The waistband solution is essential for the perfect fit of the pants.

Elastic waistband solutions ensure that the trousers stay exactly where they belong. All Löffler outdoor pants are equipped with elastic zones in the waistband and belt loops. Depending on the model, the waistband can also be adjusted using hooks, internal cord or press studs. Integrated reflective strips in the elastic waistband ends are also well thought-out features of Löffler trousers.

Flat seams also contribute to a high level of wearing comfort. Because it is extremely important, especially in a movement-intensive sport such as hiking or speedhiking, that the trousers prevent unpleasant friction and pressure points.

Which cut suits me?

Trousers in young optics, which correspond to the spirit of the time are in demand. The following cuts are available in the Mountain Sports collection:

– TAPERED / SLIM: Sporty, fashionable cut with a narrow, tightly running cut at the bottom. The trousers in a young look and fresh colors will delight fashion-conscious athletes and are suitable for sports & lifestyle.

– COMFORT / REGULAR: The classic outdoor trousers in comfort cut are straight cut and available in many variations (zip-off or ¾).

Which length is optimal for my outdoor pants?

Long trousers protect the leg underneath relatively well from slight scratches or abrasions. Shorts are a good choice in hot temperatures – if you want to do without any leg protection. Instead they offer the best freedom of movement.

To have a perfect combination of both, there are numerous zip-off trousers in the collection. As true quick-change artists, these trousers multiply the range of applications enormously.

By means of leg zip (or T-Zip) the trousers can be transformed into shorts in no time at all without taking off the hiking boots. Depending on the weather and the area of use, you have the right trousers at hand. Zip-Off Pants are available in different versions. Important models are also available in short and long styles.
