Description

Not quite softshell trousers, not quite leggings… treggings?! Whatever you call them, the Escapade provide all the protection and freedom of movement you need for the outdoors.

  • Wind-resistant, water-resistant and durable softshell fabric
  • 4-way stretch and an articulated cut for freedom of movement
  • Slimmer fit that’s less likely to catch, flap, scuff or snag

The Escapade are designed to keep you comfortable all day, from valley floor to truly nasty mountain weather. Highly wind resistant thanks to the dense weave fabric, they’re also treated with an environmentally friendly PFC-free water repellent to give you extra protection from passing showers or flurries of snow. This softshell is highly breathable and wicking, keeping you at the right temperature throughout the day.

Using a stretchy softshell fabric meant we could make the Escapade a skinnier fit than many outdoor trousers. With articulated knees and less material to flap, catch or snag, they provide you with the freedom to focus on where your feet are going – whether that’s a hike, scramble, climb, or even bike ride. This softshell is much harder wearing than most leggings fabrics, so you can slide down scree or trample through woodland worry-free.

The Escapade have a secure high-rise fit, sitting just below your natural waist with a zip fly and button closure. We’ve included 4 decent-sized jeans style pockets (big enough that you can actually use them!) and there’s a zipped pocket on the thigh that will fit your phone or compass.

Care & Environmental Advice

Product Care Information

Caring For Your DWR
The Escapade use a durable water repellent treatment (DWR) for extra weather protection. To keep your DWR working at its best, wash your trousers regularly in pure soap or a specialist cleaner. You may also need to refresh the treatment about once or twice a year (depending on usage) using a reproofer. Using a spray-on reproofer maintains your trouser’s wicking ability.

Washing Instructions
Wash on a delicate cycle at 30˚C or hand wash with lukewarm water. Use a technical wash product (like Nikwax Tech Wash or Grangers Performance Wash) or pure soap. DO NOT use detergent, fabric conditioners or softeners. Rinse thoroughly in clean water. Line dry or tumble dry on low heat. You can also use a cool iron to reactivate the DWR.

Environmental considerations

PFC-Free DWR
The Escapade pants use a completely PFC-free water repellent treatment (DWR) on their outer fabric. PFCs are potentially harmful and have been found to build up in the environment. We don't like the sound of that so we've been working hard to get rid of them.
