LIVSN Designs, a young and innovative outdoor apparel brand, is using Kickstarter to launch its new EcoTrek Trail pants — comfortable, high-performance pants tailored to look good in the city and withstand the harshest outdoor conditions. The proprietary fabric used in the EcoTrek pants, Blue Ocean Nylon, is a synthetic nylon thread made from 70 percent ocean waste.
The EcoTrek pants are available in Olive, Caramel, and Charcoal, and in a range of sizes up to 40×34 inches waist/inseam. They can be found at this link on Kickstarter.
The new EcoTreks are water-resistant, sweat-wicking, quick-drying trousers perfect for hiking, biking, camping, climbing, cycling or playing in wet, hot, and cold environments, and the modern fit and style also makes them an ideal everyday pant. The EcoTreks use the same fit and many of the features of LIVSN’s popular Flex Canvas pants (which ActionHub reviewed here), with the addition of an internal drawstring waistband and an expanded zippered phone pocket on the thigh.
True to LIVSN’s mission, these all-weather, all-activity pants are so versatile they’re designed to replace multiple pairs of jeans, slacks and outdoor pants with a single pair without compromising style, functionality or comfort. And the new pants provide LIVSN’s extreme attention to detail, including double needle flat felled seams, reinforcements at every common failure point, and construction refinement throughout.
“The EcoTrek pants are truly the result of our customers bringing a need to the table, and asking for a more technical pair built specifically for outdoor pursuits, and after months of work and testing behind the scenes we’re so excited to be launching them,” said Andrew Gibbs-Dabney, founder and CEO, LIVSN Designs. “We’re confident that the EcoTrek pants will quickly become a favorite in the wardrobe because of their perfect mix of features, style, durability, and easy comfort.”
The Blue Ocean Nylon is suitable for all seasons, and the fabric is specifically engineered to draw moisture away from the body, reducing body temperature and keeping you cool when it’s warm, while high thermal insulation helps to keep you warm on when it’s cold.
