Types of Trekking Pants
For longer outdoor adventures, you must ensure your child’s protection by getting some trekking pants that should be insulated for warmth, provide protection against rain/ sun and snow, water resistant, and comfortable to wear. Salewa
, The North Face
, and CMP
offer all sizes and styles of insulated pants
You can consider buying some softshell pants
which are made of stretchable soft material. Softshell pants are the best outdoor clothing that fit perfectly without constricting and allow moisture to escape from inside while preventing penetrating from outside. For all types of backcountry hiking, skiing, climbing, cross country hikes, and any outdoor activities where protection from outside elements such as rain, sun, snow, and dirt is important, kid’s softshell pants are ideal. The softshell pants act as one of the most efficient moisture management systems.
On the other hand, for fall, winter, and spring hiking activities, fleece pants, or puffy pants
are the best choices. As kids are more prone to get cold, it is important to keep them warm throughout the journey so that they can enjoy the trip without being sick. Fleece pants are warmer and lightweight. For kids, pants made of polyester can also be a great choice.
