Technical Information

Hybrid structure
Trousers designed with 2 different components: - a durable fabric (207 g/sqm) on areas that need protection from rubbing (buttocks, bottom of the leg at the front). This fabric is slightly stretchy, offering great freedom of movement - and a light and breathable fabric (125 g/m2) on the rest of the trousers.

What is the water-repellent property of the component?
These trousers have water-repellent inserts (front of ankle, buttocks) that let the water slide off the fabric's surface. Please note, this does not mean WATERPROOF. The water-repellent property prevents the trousers from getting wet too fast but will not keep you dry under steady rain. For this, we recommend that you wear over-trousers such as the MT500 (ref. 8493660). Water-repellent properties can be reactivated by tumble drying the trousers for 10 minutes on low temperature.

ECO-DESIGN: WHAT IMPROVEMENTS HAVE WE MADE?
Not only does textile dyeing require a lot of water but it also discharges waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we used a mass pigmentation process called “dope dyeing” on the black trousers. This process incorporates the colour pigments from the initial thread manufacture to reduce water consumption. In this way, we can reduce the carbon emissions associated with the manufacturing of the trousers by 30%
