If you’re the outdoorsy type but don’t yet own a pair of hiking leggings because you think your gym leggings are suitably fine, you are mistaken. We’re sorry to say - actually, no we’re not - gym leggings just don't cut it in the outdoors.
What you’re missing out on, besides the unparalleled performance features of ACAI’s hiking leggings, are outdoor leggings that work hard for each individual woman, their contours, their comfort and their confidence!
What to Wear Hiking
When it comes to hiking and decisions regarding what garments to wear, practicality and performance should always come first. Closely followed by fit and comfort. And if outdoor attire can suit your individual style, even better. That was our thinking, anyway.
You will always have to face the elements when hiking. That’s why it’s important to have hiking clothes that are adaptable and designed to withstand the rigours of outdoor activities and exercise, as well as the weather.
ACAI’s women’s hiking clothes were designed and developed by women, for women with each of the above considerations at the core. ACAI promises to continue to enhance its outdoorwear in the same vein (without wavering), to give women the ambition and desire to carry on adventuring in the outdoors (without hesitation).
Women's Hiking Leggings
At first glance, you may think our women’s hiking leggings look like typical gym leggings or yoga pants but, upon closer inspection, you’ll soon realise that they’re geared up to outperform such imposters.
Our women’s hiking leggings are superior. They apply performance, fit and style in a way that sports leggings can only dream of. Here’s the how and why:
Style: Close attention is paid to the finer details, giving our women’s hiking leggings little aesthetic lifts.
- Take our colour-ways, for example: Blueberry, Forest Green and Aubergine. Primary colours that appeal to individual styles. Bold enough to inject personality but muted to coordinate with other items you may already have in your wardrobe.
Homage is paid to the outdoors (and the brand) with the subtly embroidered mountain sunrise emblems.
A secure zip pocket on the front of the leggings is for storing hiking essentials and other property. It’s a sizable pocket that can fit your iPhone. We know this because we tested it!
Performance: It’s all about the performance of your outdoor gear when hiking! You’ve got to be able to rely on your garments, regardless of what occurs.
- We made our women’s hiking leggings moisture-wicking and quick-drying, so you don’t have to worry too much about the weather.
We also use a fabric that resists abrasions for longer lasting, better looking leggings, at all times!
Did we mention our reinforced seams that don’t chafe? Well, yeah, there’s that too.
Fit: If you’re out hiking for hours on end, working your leggings hard, it’s important that they stay snug. Comfort and fit is key to a long day trekking across the hillsides.
- Our four-way stretch allows for ultimate flexibility. Stride, squat and stretch your way across any terrain with unrestricted movement.
Six point leg shaping makes our hiking leggings extra comfy, as they adapt and work with your joints and contours on the move.
- Further support can be found in the snatched waist design that provides high-waist coverage, regardless of your size or shape.
The Best Hiking Leggings
Clearly, we believe that the best hiking leggings are the ones that make you feel great, look good and perform as you’d expect. The best hiking leggings should bear in mind what you may come up against during a hike and adapt accordingly. Be it a sudden change in weather, an encounter with a tricky obstacle or an unexpected call of nature where easy access is required.
Within our range of women’s leggings we have weaved in a load of features that we think make them worthy of any adventurer's wardrobe.
