Active people are more comfortable in walking trousers, which are designed to go up hills and withstand long hiking expeditions. Buy trousers suited to the climate and terrain.
A lined trouser feels so much warmer in the winter whereas zip-off trousers that turn into shorts are perfect for summer days. Walking trousers that stretch and fit loosely do not hamper long strides on flat surfaces or on uphill mountain hikes. Wear anti-rip fabric when walking through briar patches.
