The EVOlution of our well known and appreciated ST hikers keeps all the qualities of its predecessor while gaining in comfort and durability. The new superstretch insert in the stomach area gives more comfort to the core when moving and allows a perfect fit for a wider range of body shapes. The knee reinforcements change of shape to give even more protection to the neoprene patches underneath and are made with an even more abrasion resistant material. The only other thing that changes is the coloration, the rest remains the same.
Preformed cuts and six different types of neoprenes, each one put exactly where its properties are most exalted, makes this product the ultimate hiking pant. To achieve durability and comfort the back side is made with 6,5 mm small diamond neoprene, the 3,5 mm K1 neoprene on the thighs makes the pants rigid where needed, the back of the knees & other parts where elasticity is needed are made with 2mm and 3 mm superstretch neoprene, the lower leg is made with small diamond neoprene to make the pants resistant to abrasions and more durable.
The pants are equipped with integrated battens made of virtually unbreakable fibreglass put inside a rubberised PVC net pocket, reinforced with high tenacity Cordura on the sides and a heavy duty coated PVC outer shell. All the mentioned combined with the stiffer neoprene on the tights makes you feel like the pants are part of you.
