Areas of use
These pants are your go-to pants around the campfire or on the sofa after an adventure. They can also be worn under your shell pants on cold days. Other areas of use:

  • Warm up and cool down
  • Hanging out with the in-laws
  • Post-shred at the cabin
  • In your tent on cold nights
  • Extra warmth on the ski lift on cold days

It's also very important that these pants last a long time. They are developed with many years of wear and tear in mind, and must have a timeless design. The background for our design philosophy is the simple fact that there are no sustainable textiles. The only thing that really makes a difference for the environment is consuming less. That's why we have to develop garments together, that are used often and for a very long time. We recommend reading our design philosophy before giving feedback on this product.

Attributes
This is a brand new product idea. We have yet to order a prototype and are launching the product as a sketch to include you in the entire process. Nothing is etched in stone, but we are leaning towards these attributes:

  • Good sized side pockets with zippers
  • Drawstring in waist for easy adjustment
  • Reinforcement in knees
  • Smaller around shins, wider around hips and thighs
  • Long length without ankle cuff
  • Earth tones without "loud" details
  • Matching hoodie (see here)

In addition to these attributes, we have a few questions:

  • Is this a product you would order?
  • Are there any obvious (or not so obvious) attributes that should be included in the pants?
  • Should there be zippers in the sides like on the Ziplongs®?
    • Pro: Easy to take off and put on (in a tent, sleeping bag or on a hike)
    • Con: More technical than cozy look

Material
You've probably heard of fleece, but have you heard of wool fleece? Wool fleece is knitted wool where one side is brushed soft. By using wool instead of regular fleece, we get all the advantages of wool, we are able to stick to natural materials and you still get a comfortable garment with great insulation. We are currently looking for a good supplier.

Wool fleece vs polyster fleece
A challenge with polyester is that it is made of oil and sheds micro plastic. Most people know this, but lots of people prefer polyester fleece because they think that it makes for a more "breathable" mid-layer. Research from Austria referred to in Randulf Valles book "Why Does Being Wet Make You Feel So Cold" clearly shows that moisture is transported away from the body more effectively with wool as a mid-layer. Just try for yourself!

Background
We are constantly receiving new product ideas in our idea portal. When Community members Jørgen Jevne and Trygve Ugelstad sent in the same idea of "camp pants", we couldn't resist the urge to take it a step further with our Community. Read Jørgen and Trygve's ideas below.

"Pants for use in winter camps. Really just the same idea as Ziplongs® continued. There is a small vacuum of producers here today, with only a few good alternatives on the market. Full-length zippers are something you should be best at within the industry." - Idea sent in by Jørgen Jevne

"I love bringing camp pants on trips. It would be cool to have one with the same concept as Ziplongs®. Even easier to take off before getting into a sleeping bag or putting on wet skin after getting out of a kayak. Should be a little thick, with a soft material on the inside. 1 or 2 pockets. Elastic waist. That would be awesome!" - Ida sent in by Trygve Ugelstad
