Women’s Outdoor Clothing
by Laura Barlow on Apr 21, 2023
Ask yourselves what typical women’s outdoor clothing looks like. If you’re envisioning something along the lines of men’s outdoor garments but smaller and with more “feminine” colours, you’ve arrived at the inception of ACAI as a company.
The “shrink and pink” philosophy could be seen hanging on rails in every outdoor adventure store. It was also being adorned on mountain tops and countryside rambles everywhere we looked. There was no alternative. Women’s outdoor clothes had been pigeon-holed into a cookie-cutter narrative of who outdoorswomen are and what they want from adventures.
Now ask yourselves if you're ready to join ACAI’s mission to revolutionise every woman’s experience outdoors by changing the face of women's outdoor clothing forever. If it’s a ‘yes’, then read on!
A Passion for the Outdoors & a Penchant for Style
A love for the outdoors and having the confidence to express your individuality is where it all began for ACAI. Since then, we’ve been somewhat obsessed with providing high-quality outdoor clothing for women, which offer incredible style, fit and performance.
In return, we hoped to encourage you to embrace your individuality, strength, and uniqueness by wearing our gear to break down the barriers to enjoying mother nature’s playground.
We believe in women’s outdoor clothing which supports you in achieving whatever challenges you decide to set, as we strive towards a sustainable future with garments we hope you’ll love forever.
Since 2017, ACAI has developed a wide range of performance clothing to not only cater for all your outdoor adventures such as hiking, camping and horse riding but to double up as everyday wardrobe essentials too.
By paying close attention to style and comfort, our garments have crossed over into numerous industries, been worn for an array of hobbies, and popped up in places we’d never have thought they would.
Women’s Outdoor Trousers & Leggings
Let’s begin where it all began shall we? ACAI paved the way with the MAX Stretch Skinny Outdoor Trousers (mimicking a skinny jean with all the bum-hugging style and fit), and if you're planning on hitting the trails, a reliable and robust pair of outdoor trousers like these is a must-have.
Within our range of women’s outdoor trousers, we have developed colours, sizes and styles to suit all individual preferences and their preferred activities. And, as ever, durability and comfort were at the forefront.
Max Stretch Skinny Outdoor Trouser - Deep Sage
Four Way Stretch
All of our outdoor trousers are made using smart fabrics and materials. For example, softshell gives you freedom of movement, so they stretch when you stretch, breathe when you breathe and offer a figure-flattering solution with every outdoorswoman in mind.
Outdoor Softshell Leggings - Aubergine
Secure Zip Pocket

Women's Outdoor Jackets & Fleeces
Currently, our Waterproof Multiway Jacket flies the flag for our selection of women’s outdoor jackets. This is because it was designed to be worn in multiple styles for a multitude of activities, so why make more than one?
The Waterproof Multiway Jacket - Steel
The Multiway is designed to provide you with maximum performance, with high-quality materials that are durable, breathable and water-resistant, combining to ensure that you stay warm and dry on any outdoor adventure. It’s also designed to adapt, not only to the elements, but individual style preferences too, ensuring you always feel good and look even better.
The Outdoor Full Zip Fleece - Fossil
Our women’s outdoor fleeces, such as the Outdoor Full-Zip Fleece actually make a great underlayer to the Multiway. Yet, on its own, it’s perfectly windproof, showerproof and oh so cosy!
Women's Outdoor Shorts
Perfect for those warmer days when you want to stay cool and comfortable, our women’s outdoor shorts are made with lightweight, breathable and stretchy materials that allow you to move freely with comfort, making them perfect for hiking, climbing or simply lounging around in the sun.
Four Way Stretch
While products like the Trek Shorts are packed full of performance features which make them ideal as a durable adventure short, they also have lots of style considerations so you can wear them with outfits that work for dog walking or sipping cold beverages in a beer garden.
Women’s Outdoor Tops & Base Layers
Our range of women’s outdoor tops are again designed to provide you with maximum performance, comfort and style. Designed by women for women, they are wear tested and employ high-quality materials that are breathable and moisture-wicking, ensuring that you stay cool and dry when working up a sweat.
We’ve also developed a base layer range helping to fend off the cold by wearing our female base layers as everyday wear, safe in the knowledge that the next to skin comfort is second to none.
Women's Outdoor Accessories
No outdoor outfit is complete without the right accessories. ACAI offers a range of women's outdoor accessories, from merino wool beanie hats and hiking socks geared up for additional warmth throughout the winter season to useful and practical accessories like water bottles and belts.
Merino Wool Hiking Socks - Heather Grey
So, in short, we’ve gone from a shrink and pink pigeon-holed identity issue to a breadth of outdoor clothing geared up to help you stay comfortable, protected, and stylish on your next adventure.
With sustainable materials and a commitment to quality, you can trust that your ACAI gear will stand up to whatever the outdoors throws your way. So what are you waiting for?
