Loyal companions - the perfect pants for the mountain tour. There are some points to have a closer look at in order to find the right outdoor pants.
They still exist: hikers in cotton trousers or jeans. If everyday trousers will do, why should you buy your own hiking trousers? Hiking trousers made of functional materials offer enormous advantages over jeans and other clothing:
The waistband plays a decisive role for the perfect fit of the trousers. Elastic waistband solutions ensure that the trousers stay exactly where they should. All Löffler outdoor pants for men and women are equipped with elastic zones in the waistband and belt loops. Depending on the model, the waistband can also be adjusted with a hook, internal drawstring or push button.
The integrated reflective strips in the elastic waistband are also useful and well thought-out. Flat seams also contribute to a high level of comfort. It is extremely important to avoid uncomfortable chafing and pressure points, especially for high-movement sports such as hiking or speed hiking.
Basically, there are two ” beliefs”: tighter and therefore less friction – wider and therefore more air circulation. Both are right to a certain extent. Only a try-on can clarify which cut is the right one for you. Our hiking trousers are made in two cuts:
Long trousers provide good protection for the leg underneath from minor scratches. Shorts are the best choice in high temperatures and have the benefit of the greatest freedom of movement.
To combine the advantages of both, zip-off Löffler offer zip-off pants in the collection. As true quick-change artists, they expand the possible uses considerably.
Thanks to the leg zip (or T-zip), the zip-off trousers can be transformed into shorts in no time at all, without having to take off your hiking boots. Depending on the weather and the area of use, they are a real quick-change artist. You can also find some models in short and long sizes. These are sizes with different leg lengths. It is definitely worth getting the right size. If the hiking trousers are too short, they will constantly slip over the shoe and expose the leg. If they are too long, however, you may step on them with your heel. Acute danger of falling is guaranteed!

And if, despite all the care you take, something should break on your clothing, Löffler offers a professional repair service.

In addition, you can return trousers that don’t fit from your selection free of charge from Germany and Austria!
