The Wool Fleece Pants
AREAS OF USE
We strive for all our products to fit in any situation, so when it comes to areas of use the sky's the limit. Think of them as your go-to around the campfire, the first thing you put on when hitting the couch after a long hike, and a great friend under your shell on cold days. Other possible areas of use:
- Warm up and cool down
- On a walk with the in-law's
- Post shred at the cabin
- In the tent on cold nights
- Extra warmth on cold chairlifts
DESIGNED FOR A LONG LIFE
A key part of the design phase was to create pants that last a long time. During development we focused on the many years of wear and tear they will undergo, and made sure to give them a timeless design. At the base of our design philosophy is the simple fact that there is no such thing as sustainable materials. The only thing that really makes an environmental difference is less consumption. For that reason, these pants are made with reinforcements in exposed areas that are easy to replace when necessary.
PRICE AND DEVELOPMENT
We are always looking to improve every product in our collection, but when it comes to new products like this we are especially excited to hear what you think. In hopes that you will contribute your feedback, we have lowered the price of this first batch of pants. The products will receive their normal price after the next round of production (around 180 Euro). More information about how to give feedback will be available after purchase.
You've probably heard of fleece, but do you really know what it is? Opposite to what most people think, fleece isn't a fiber. The word actually describes the appearance of a material, and was originally used to describe part of the wool. By using wool fleece instead of polyester you receive all of the obvious advantages of wool. In addition, we are able to stick to natural materials. Last but not least, you get a comfortable garment with great insulation.
WOOL FLEECE VS. POLYESTER FLEECE
A downside of polyester is that it is made of oil and sheds micro plastic. Most people know this and still prefer polyester fleece because they think it breathes better as a mid-layer, but research shows that moisture is transported away from the body more efficiently when wearing a wool mid-layer. Not to mention, wool is "self cleaning" and doesn't get smelly like polyester. That means that you can wash a wool jacket less than a polyester jacket, which is good for your clothes and the planet.

We are constantly receiving new product ideas through our idea portal. When Community members Jørgen Jevne and Trygve Ugelstad sent in the same idea of "camp pants" in 2021, 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." - 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!" - Trygve Ugelstad
After developing and testing with our Community, the final product might not be exactly what Jørgen and Trygve originally envisioned. We think that this kind of development is part of what makes ideas so magical, and we are certain that the product will be a fantastic addition to the collection alongside The wool fleece jacket.
