The Abisko Shade Trousers are lightweight, airy outdoor trousers designed for warm, climate trekking. Made from G-1000 Air (un-waxed) fabric combined with well thought out vent features to provide maximum ventilation.
Lightweight, airy outdoor trousers for travelling and trekking in warm climates. Made from G-1000 Air in recycled polyester and organic cotton and designed for maximum air circulation with as few sections of double-layer fabric as possible. Zippers from the hips to the knees release excess heat and a ventilated yoke at the rear lets air circulate when you move about. The leg endings are a little wider to let in more air.
The hand pockets have mesh linings and the leg pockets are zippered and have discrete bellows. They come with a convenient textile belt and there is a little loop to fasten gear to.
Clothing in the Abisko family is designed for lightweight trekking. The garments are characterised by low weight, fast drying and good ventilation - perfect for when you want to move around easily, either in the summer mountains or in warmer climates.
Fjällräven's Abisko Shade Trousers are constructed from G-1000 Air in recycled polyester and cotton which is an un-waxed fabric. Designed to be breathable and quick-drying, with a few sections made with double-layer fabrics for added strength where it's needed. Although it's un-waxed the fabric is still reasonably hardwearing and provides almost 100% protection against the sun's ultraviolet rays, helping to greatly reduce the risk of sunburn so you can discover the great outdoors without limitations.
The venting options on these trousers are quite unique, with two long side zips that go from your hip to your knee, that open up fully to release excess heat. There's also a rear yoke where you would usually find the rear pockets, this adds extra air flow for maximum ventilation. Although you don't have a rear pocket there's still plenty of storage options with two open hand pockets and two large zip thigh pockets, one with a small internal mesh pocket. There's a pull drawcord on the bottom of the legs for adjustment and the trousers also come with a simple textile belt to give you the best fit.
As with all Fjällräven products, attention to detail has been given to every aspect of the garment, even the button closure has been nicely engraved with the Fjällräven Arctic Fox logo.
