Men’s walking trousers and shorts are designed to be worn next to the skin, and need to be comfortable and roomy enough so that you can move freely throughout your chosen outdoor activity. They will need to be durable and give protection from the elements if required. Most men’s walking trousers and shorts are not designed to be fully waterproof but many of the synthetic fabrics used from leading outdoor brands will have some degree of water resistance and will also dry quickly should you happen to get wet. If you want walking trousers or walking shorts that shrug off the water more effectively try brands such as Mountain Equipment and The North Face who often use a water-repellent coating for added protection.
Whether you’re a keen dog walker, happy camper or hard-core hiker most men’s walking trousers and men’s walking shorts can be worn as a normal pair of trousers in everyday life as well as a hard wearing pair of well constructed trousers for peak baggers and crag-hoppers alike. Getting the fit and sizing right is important so be sure to check the manufacturers size charts before purchasing your pair of outdoor activity trousers.
When walking it is important to consider how many pockets you are going to need. If you are the kind of guy that doesn't like carrying a rucksack or daysack for a day hike then you may want to take on a pair of technical trousers for walking/hiking that includes many pockets or fastenings. Pockets are important and those designed specifically for your mobile, a hidden security pocket, roomy cargo pockets for maps and GPS devices are seriously useful but most important are those fleece lined hand warmer pockets if you have forgotten your essential walking gloves.
We all have those moments when the weather is a little temperamental and we can’t decide whether it is a trousers or shorts day. For those days there are convertible walking trousers that can be worn full length until you’ve acclimatised, then unzip the bottom part of the leg to make them into shorts. These are great for travel when the days are warm and humid but the nights bring in the midges and you need that extra leg protection. With top brands such as Craghoppers, Regatta and The North Face all giving a great range of men’s travel trousers and men’s travel shorts including convertible garments you are sure to find something to suit your need here at e-OUTDOOR.
