DeAnn's Talks Fjallraven Tights
From Great Outdoor Store
These are NOT your ordinary leggings!
I know ladies, we all have several (way too many in my case) pairs of leggings. On my recent travels to the upper northwest US, I naturally brought leggings to hike in. One pair of your average going-to-yoga pair and another…the Fjallraven Abisko Trekking Tights. This was my first time trying these out and I am completely in love with them! Unlike your typical leggings the Abisko tights have been built specifically for hiking. They are made of a dense, high performance fabric that fits great with a higher waist stays in place. They have reinforcements at the knees and seat for extra protection when sitting down on damp or rough surfaces (yes, no snagging!). What I think I liked the most about these tights were the pockets. A security pocket at the waist band was great for smaller items, a map pocket on right leg fit my iPhone perfectly without it hanging out at all, and a zipperd pocket on the left was great for all the other stuff you want closer to you than in your pack. The gusset crotch and low profile flat seams kept chaffing at bay. I ended up wearing these almost everyday of the trip, and it seems like such a little thing, but I learned that a true hiking tight makes all the difference in comfort and convenience.
