Functional zip-off trousers for hillwalking and trekking tours

Zip-off trousers are the perfect hillwalking clothing for day trips and trekking tours lasting several days. They function as both long hiking trousers and as hiking shorts, and are ideal for when the weather conditions and temperatures are variable. For example, if you start your mountain tour in summer early in the day, you can start with the long zip-off trousers, and when the temperatures rise in the morning, the long outdoor zip trousers can be transformed into knee-length hillwalking shorts in no time at all.

Compared to hillwalking trousers without a practical zip above the knees, zip off walking trousers offer maximum flexibility for all weather conditions. Zip-off trousers are also very practical in the transitional seasons in spring and autumn, because if it gets unexpectedly warm or strenuous while hillwalking, short walking trousers are always just a zip away. The separated legs fit comfortably in a walking backpack, in a hardshell jacket or in a windbreaker.

Breathable hillwalking trousers with detachable legs

Outdoor zip trousers are not only characterised by their quickly removable leg ends, but also offer very good freedom of movement and breathability thanks to functional material blends. Many zip-off hillwalking trousers are made from a combination of different synthetic fibres, such as polyamide, nylon, polyester and elastane. This means that the outdoor-ready functional fabric is comfortably elastic, durable and breathable. During intense exertion, it rapidly wicks moisture away from the body and also dries quickly.

Outdoor companies, such as Maier Sports, use lightweight and quick-drying materials that also make the zip-off trousers particularly practical for holiday trips, hillwalking trips and backpacking. The trekking specialists Fj
