Mello tights are technical all-day leggings designed for life outdoors: hiking, hillwalking, scrambling and climbing. Made from a comfortable, moisture-wicking soft nylon fabric they're for wherever your legs take you.
The Mello’s four-way stretch gives the feeling of freedom only a pair of leggings can provide. Whether striding over jagged Snowdonian summits or pushing your limits on a (seemingly) impossible crux, you'll barely notice wearing them. The fabric is high-wicking too, keeping you at a comfortable temperature throughout the day, no matter how hard you’re working.
The design is a tailored fit (but not compressive) to contour the curves of your legs so you don't have to spend your whole day pulling up your tights. A high waist with a deep waistband is less likely to slip down, offers more coverage and is more comfortable under harnesses and rucksack hip-belts. The fabric is fully opaque.
Mello has to withstand the (often literal) scrapes we get ourselves into outdoors. The soft nylon knit is deceptively hardwearing, providing extra durability when squeezing past rocks or getting into battles with bracken after one too many wrong turns.

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
