Keb Trousers Regular - Tarmac/Dark Olive
Coming Soon £175.00
Technically advanced trekking trousers from Fjällräven made from stretchy Polamide mix and durable G-1000 Eco material. With an optimised fit, ventilation and pockets.
Carefully planned details make for trousers intended for alpine trekking that requires climbing - where mobility is just as important as durability and protection from sharp stones. Specifically for this purpose the rear and knees are pre-shaped to fit better and have extra strong seams. The Keb Trousers also have durable G-1000® Eco at the rear, front of the legs, the knees and on the inside bottom of the legs, where there is also a second layer of fabric for reinforcement against wear from your hiking boots.
The seam on the inside of the thigh has been moved and replaced by a connecting fabric panel to reduce the risk of chafing and wear, while a zippered ventilation opening from knee to hip and along the calf releases excess heat. The trouser fly is also extended to enable extra ventilation. Two leg pockets with pocket cover flap, one with a zip and one with a mesh pocket inside for your bits and bobs. High hand pockets hold their contents even when sitting down. Strap adjustment with button fastening at trouser end plus hook to secure to ski boot or hiking boot.

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
The story behind Fjällräven began in 1950 when Åke Nordin, a 14-year-old boy from Örnsköldsvik in Northern Sweden, was about to go for a trek in the mountains. Åke, who spent more time outdoors than indoors, did not like the backpacks that were available at that time. He decided to take matters into his own hands and built a wooden frame.
This backpack frame was the start of Åke's company, Fjällräven, in 1960. The name Fjällräven means Arctic Fox in Swedish and the name is in honour of the small predator which lives in the Swedish mountains in the harshest of climates.
