Functional, fashionable and sporty jeans
Hardly any other garment is as universal and versatile as jeans. Jeans are available for women, men, teenagers and kids and come in countless colour variations and material combinations. First and foremost, however, when most people think of jeans they imagine a pair of robust, blue cotton trousers - equipped with belt loops and in the classic five-pocket design.
Jeans trousers have long since become comfortable everyday trousers and casual pants. They come in light blue, dark blue, grey or black - and some are also available in particularly striking colours such as red, yellow, green or orange. Although jeans were originally developed as sturdy work trousers with rivets to reinforce the seams, many jeans wearers focus on fashionable jeans.
Stretchy jeans and robust outdoor trousers
The addition of stretchy elastane gives the denim elasticity, making the jeans particularly easy to move in. For hillwalking, climbing and bouldering, elasticated jeans provide sporty performance while being robust, abrasion-resistant and durable.
Many outdoor trousers and hillwalking trousers are either very light or extremely robust and abrasion-resistant. A comfortable pair of climbing or outdoor jeans is right in the middle in terms of functionality and offers a great mix of freedom of movement, breathability and soft feel. Outdoor jeans from Patagonia, Prana and Maloja are also mostly made from cotton or organic cotton.
Practical details for sporty outdoor jeans
To further improve the mobility of climbing jeans, some models also have movement-friendly gusset inserts in the crotch and ergonomically preformed knee sections. Adjustable waistband widths and integrated drawstrings in the waistband offer perfect sizing and a comfortable fit for sporty outdoor activities.
Some workwear trousers, work jeans and outdoor jeans are extra reinforced at the knees and seat to provide even better protection for the trousers from damage and abrasion. Practical details, such as brush holders for climbers and boulderers, zipped back pockets or a particularly breathable and quick-drying material blend complete the range of sporty outdoor jeans.
