Discovering new sights every day, trying to set up a campsite at twilight and star gazing are the essence of trekking. You get to pick the setting—the vastness of the wasteland, the urban or rural ambience, or the magnificence of the highlands. However, no matter what the setting is, if you need to be outdoors for an extended period, you need trekking pants that are lightweight and comfortable.
The body's principal means of propulsion are the legs, and pants are its initial line of protection. The right trekking pants can keep you warm or ventilated, comfortable, and free from abrasions so that you can focus just on the path ahead. Good trekking pants are comfortable, have multiple pockets, and are strong and flexible.
The design emphasis is on convenience, sturdiness, and efficiency, along with cost. Typically, manufacturers put pants through rigorous testing in settings like the hillsides and tropical rainforests, vast desert gorges, lofty mountainsides, lengthy routes, and even keep them for regular use. With textiles that can repel water (or in some cases wick moisture), keep the sun off, fend against sharp pebbles and twigs, and which continue to function even after years of use, outdoor pants have always had cutting-edge innovations.
Most trekking and hiking pants made by reputed brands have the functional features necessary to navigate the trails and the passes effectively. These pants are highly engineered products and are expensive. Often these pants perform exceptionally on the trail, but at other times they are mostly lying at the corner of our wardrobes, waiting for the next outdoor trip we may embark upon. Reccy’s founders, being adventurers themselves, have taken up the challenge of creating outdoor pants that are versatile and multipurpose, that would be uncompromising on the trail, and equally good in urban settings. Such pants are anti-fast fashion and environment friendly, as they eliminate the need to own separate pants for different life occasions. As such, the fashion / garment industry is second on the list of most polluting industries, primarily driven by fast fashion. Hence, if you love nature and care for the earth, you must own versatile outdoor pants that are fantastic on the trails, and comfortable as well as stylish for all your urban endeavors.
What are the various use cases of a multipurpose trekking pant?
Versatile, multipurpose trekking pants, such as the Urban Outdoor range from Reccy, have many use-cases.
Trekking pants should have a snug yet comfortable fit, should ideally be water-repellant, and have sufficient breathability, ventilation and stretch. After all, you may be wearing these for days on the trail.
If you are planning a weekend hiking trip and would like to head out straight from office on a Friday afternoon, you need a versatile outdoor pant which would be acceptable to wear to office, with all the features that a good trekking or hiking pant should have.
If you are camping with your friends or family, then an excellent quality multipurpose women’s or men’s trekking pant can bear all the harshness of the terrain, while giving you the comfort when you relax at the campsite. There might be twigs, unwanted puddles of water, an odd shower, stray leaves, and others that could ruin a regular pair of pants while you are out camping. Not to mention the continuous amount of sweating that you must endure while putting up the tents during camping outdoors. Hence a pair of super comfortable, stretchy, water repellent, durable pants can enhance your outdoor experience by many degrees.
If you are traveling near or far, a pair of versatile outdoor pant will be a great companion to have. These will allow you to stretch your legs and sit comfortably while traveling. The ample storage space will allow you carry and secure your travel documents, and when you take long walks, within the city or away on the trail, the pants’ breathability, lightness, and water repellent property will enhance your experience.
Friday office wear
With most of the office-going population enjoying a casual Friday or wear-what-you-want Fridays, it gives outdoor lovers and adventurers a terrific opportunity to express themselves by wearing pants from the Urban Outdoor collection of men’s trekking pants or women’s trekking pants from Reccy. These pants look cool, casual, and have a ton of features. Plus, they will allow you to stand out as you will not be wearing drab office-wear, or usual Friday khakis, chinos, or denims.
Rainy days/Ideal for Monsoon
Trekking and outdoor pants that are water repellent, are also perfect for rainy weather or monsoon. They can weather a light shower and dry quickly. So, what works in the mountains is great for cities as well. Moreover, denim or cotton-based pants become heavy when wet and don’t dry quickly. Is there any reason to wear such pants in rainy weather?
Reccy’s Urban Outdoor collection of versatile hiking/outdoor pants are perfect even as casual wear in the urban setting. They can be seamlessly paired with your golf t-shirts, casual shirts, or denim jackets. You can even go clubbing in these pants!
You can use these trekking pants for sporting an active casual, a smart casual, a dressy casual, and even a business casual look. You can always substitute the denim/jeans which has become a propaganda of casual wear and these pairs of pants will change that.
With fabrics that render a comfortable and breathable body, these versatile trekking pants for men and women from Reccy are ideal for lazing around and lounging. You can sit by the poolside and relax in an Aloha shirt with floral patterns and this pair of pants. You can even go and watch sports events live in these pairs of pants from Reccy. If you are in front of your TV or console, wearing these trekking pants will feel most relieved as you will not feel the strain while suddenly stretching your legs or trying to sit comfortably. You will feel that these pants are made for lounging!
More versatile than ever, trekking pants and hybrids are a smart choice for hiking and a perfect addition to any ensemble.
