On warmer days, it's a good idea to pick a pair of functional ¾ trousers for trekking, mountaineering or climbing. These reach just below the knee and are the ideal transitional trousers for men and women. ¾ trousers are also known as Capri trousers and were first created in 1948 by the fashion designer Sonja de Lennart. She named her collection at the time after her favourite travel destination. For outdoor wear, three-quarter-length trousers are cut rather casually; worn for running, aerobics or yoga, they're usually tight-fitting. ¾ length trousers are optimal climbing trousers in summer as they support movement whilst protecting your knees from abrasions. At Addnature we have a great selection of ¾ and Capri trousers for sports and everyday wear from a wide range of brands.
