Reviewing our partner Findra’s cargo trousers
I was recently in Iceland and needed new walking trousers to hike in the snowy mountains. Findra Cargo Pants were perfect from our partner outdoor clothes company founded by Alex Feechan – who herself is passionate about the outdoors.
As Alex said, ‘The Cora Cargo Pants are our first outdoor trousers. The aim was for them to be stylish and versatile, comfortable and easy to wear, pack and carry.
‘Made from a breathable, lightweight, 4-way stretch fabric with a water-repellent finish, there are no fussy zips or fastenings, simply a fabric-covered elasticated waistband for stretch, comfort and the perfect fit. We wanted to create trousers that we would feel happy climbing a hill in or wearing to the pub!
I loved that they are stretchy with room for thermal leggings underneath and so comfortable for those long walks. The material is so soft and easy to wear – none of that scratchy material that irritates the skin. Very light too, and takes up very little space when packing. I mostly take hand luggage when I travel, so I look for these products that take up very little space. These trousers are a great match with the blue merino wool top, so you can still look stylish as you walk!
And a top tip from Findra for the winter
The secret to keeping warm is to add lightweight layers, which help to trap warm air and insulate you from the cold. In colder weather, the cargo trousers are great with the Fern merino leggings underneath and a next-to-skin base layer, such as the Fern merino striped or plain textured base layer. The Nordic socks are perfect for keeping feet warm under boots, and they have a pair in WalkingWomen colours!
