Prize-winning Keb Trousers, now with removable gaiters. Technically-advanced hiking pants with optimised fit and carefully-thought-through details.
In warm weather the lower section of the leg can be taken off to turn the pants into shorts, just like a regular pair of zip-off pants. The removed section has a drawcord adjustment at the calf that together with the boot hook in the leg ending transforms it into a gaiter that protects legs in brush-filled terrain.
The fabric is stretch with G-1000 Eco at the rear, the front of the legs and over the knees for extra durability. Leg endings are also reinforced with extra hardwearing G-1000 HeavyDuty so they resist wear and tear from trekking boots.
The rear and knees are preshaped and have extra strong seams. The seams on the inside of the legs have been moved forward to reduce the risk of chafing. A zippered ventilation opening from knee to hip releases excess heat and even the fly has been lengthened for extra ventilation if needed. Two leg pockets with flaps, one of which has an inner mesh pocket for smaller items such as a telephone. Hand pockets are positioned high so contents do not spill out when you sit down. Strap adjustments at the leg endings and, in addition to the hidden boot hook, the leg endings are equipped with eyelets to which laces or metal hooks can be attached - yet another way to fasten the pants leg and prevent brush or snow from finding its way into boots.
