When you set out from the hut, you can still see your breath, but by the time you stop for lunch, it's T-shirt and shorts weather. With the OVERLAND ZIP AWAY, you get a pair of softshell trousers and a cool pair of shorts in one. The legs can be zipped off above the knee - a practical feature when the weather warms up. The OVERLAND ZIP AWAY also offer all the advantages you'd expect from a softshell garment: basic weather protection, very good breathability and superb freedom of movement. The FLEX SHIELD fabric is very light and has a UV protection factor of 40+ to shield you from the sun. If you're looking for a pair of functional, fully-featured trousers for mountain walking and hiking, the OVERLAND ZIP AWAY should definitely be on your shortlist.
