Tough zip-off trousers in brushed G-1000 with many practical pockets
Trousers in brushed G-1000® with zip-off legs. Karl is an outdoor trousers series that can be used anywhere. These are some of our most popular recreational trousers for both mountain hikes and weekends at the summer cabin. Karl Zip-off have detachable legs, which means you can easily transform them into a pair of shorts. They are made from durable G-1000® Silent fabric with brushed finish and pre-shaped knees. Two side pockets, two back pockets, one large leg pocket for maps and one smaller pocket for multi tools. Low waist and regular fit. The trousers have raw length, which allows you to adjust the length of the legs exactly as you wish.
The G-1000® fabric is superior to many other fabrics. It is a mix of cotton and polyester and is woven extremely tight and with double-twisted, siliconized threads. This combination makes the fabric so extraordinarily sturdy. Furthermore, the fabric is lightweight and water- and dirt repellent when treated with the organic impregnation mix of bee's wax and paraffin (Greenland wax). In addition, the fabric has good drying properties, a high breathability, and a UV Protection of UPF 50+. Also, the fabric is virtually mosquito proof. Please notice that the wax generates a film on the film which is deliberate but is sometimes (wrongly) interpreted as dirt or signs of wear and tear. If the properties generated by waxing are not required, you can wash out the wax in 3-4 cycles with 40°. The wax can be applied again whenever it is required, you only have to rub in the wax and then iron or blow-dry the fabric.
