Outdoor sports trousers are lightweight, windproof and quick drying for excellent performance when enjoying outdoor sporting activites including climbing, scrambling and mountaineering. These trousers should also have a good fit for ease of movement and a stylish look together with a DWR Durable Water Repellent finish to help prevent the fabric from wetting out in rain. This enables good breathability so your perspiration can escape in damp conditions. Also, the material will dry more quickly when it stops raining. Both nylon and polyester are good materials for walking trousers due to their quick dry properties, Nylon is the toughest, thereby permitting a lightweight, tightly woven fabric which stops the wind and gives good sun protection. Tactel is a form of nylon which peforms all these functions whilst giving a soft, cotton like feel which does not russle or crackle so it is probabley the best material to use. Cotton itself of course must be avoided as this dries very slowly so pants stick to your legs and make walking difficult when wet.
