The Enduro Salopettes are designed to fulfil the needs of the demanding outdoor professional.
When working hard in extreme conditions, you need legwear which will offer all-day comfort, unrestricted movement and protection from cold and wet conditions. The well-tested and functional design, combined with Nikwax Analogy Waterproof fabric, provides optimum comfort, excellent articulation and total weather protection.
The Enduro Salopettes provide excellent freedom of movement, have tough reinforcement patches and the ability to "access all areas", even when using a harness.
Unrestricted movement provided by large stretch panels which run from the waist to below the knee, adjustment cords on the calf and carefully designed panel construction ensure ease of use with harnesses and crampons. Fabric reinforcement in all high abrasion areas; removable foam inserts provide additional knee protection and Dyneema® patches on the ankles protect against crampon wear. Drop seat and 2-way zipped fly allow for comfort stops without removal of the garment or braces, even when wearing a harness.
Nikwax Analogy Waterproof fabric is more than just breathable, it is directional.
This means it is capable of moving liquid water away from your body and not just water vapour.
It is essential to avoid a build-up of water in your clothing system when you are working hard, as too much retained moisture will lead to your body rapidly chilling when you stop and rest. In conventional clothing systems, approximately 20% of sweat production is dealt with effectively, leaving the remaining 80% trapped inside. Nikwax Analogy garments are unique, in that they pump out this 80% of liquid water and allow it to drain away; you are left feeling dry and comfortable.
