Aquatherm® Pre-Bent long trousers
This design stops the pull and fatigue associated with garments out of their neutral position by designing them to be in the neutral position when seated in or on your kayak. The advantages are less restriction and fatigue for the paddler making for more comfortable longer trips.
External waterproof taping to strengthen all seams, seat and gusset areas.
Aquatherm® fabric has been developed to enable wearers to remain warm and dry in a whole range of conditions. It is a lightweight fabric that offers great freedom of movement, far more so than with traditional, bulkier neoprene and woven garments.
It is essential that the garment is working with the wearer, unlike earlier neoprene fabrics, where the wearer is more often working against the garment. Aquatherm is less than a millimetre thick and remains stable, flexible, strong and waterproof when fully flexed. Unlike neoprene, it has the added advantage of being water-shedding and fast drying, so less temperature is lost from the wet outer shell through evaporation.

Made from Aquatherm fabric. The only trousers constructed with pre-bent seat and waist areas. This design helps take the fabric strain off the upper legs and across the stomach when in a paddling position making for very comfortable paddling pants.
These trousers fit best when sat or kneeling for paddling. They have a high back to keep your mid and lower abdomen warm and protected. External waterproof taping strengthens seat and gusset areas. Fully waterproof, stretchy and comfortable with a smooth-feel knit on the inside. Best worn as a snug fit, but some paddlers wear thin thermals under these trousers in especially cold conditions.
All inside leg measurements are 31"/71cm. These trousers are unisex.
