Trail Tuesday Review: It’s been a long winter, and with the way things are going, we’ll be hiking in snow for quite some time. One of the most common questions we’ve gotten this season was about fleece lined leggings. While at the @outdoorretailer show, we got to meet with @polartecfabric, well known for their scientific and inventive fabrics that can be found in the fabrics of dozens of well known outdoor brands. You might want to check your closet, you may have something developed by Polartec you didn’t even know you had!
A wildly popular apparel item is these Athleta Powerlift Tights. There are many features to cover when it comes to these leggings, starting with the fleece lining; And in just a few words, my, @Im_NicoleMarie, personal take on them: cozy, toasty, comfortable. All, of which are difficult to achieve when hiking, snowshoeing or doing any winter sports in the cold, wet and snowy conditions. Additional notable highlights of the Powertights include Polartec Power Stretch which allows for optimum movement and full thermal insulation and Plush Tech which includes a brushed fabric along the waistline. The leggings are breathable and wick sweat away from the body.
There are several different styles available through @Athleta which include color blocking and reflective options. AND, we at @WomenWhoHike love and appreciate the range of size options for EVERYONE. Not only are sizes available from XXS-XL but also in tall, petite and plus size. Can we get a heck yes?! There is something for everyone, and the styling features on the pants also don’t disappoint with a comfortable higher waist, secure side pockets on both sides and a fully adjustable hidden drawstring.
Perhaps, the most impressive feature of the tights is the high quality construction, the fabrics used are solid, thick without being bulky and the threading and hems ensure for a long lasting product for all your winter adventures for years to come.
Right now, there are several options available on the Athlete website and they’re all on sale! So, treat yourself today on Valentines Day for a gift that will keep you warm on the trails, mountains or wherever your adventurous hearts lead you. #TrailTuesday
