Simply the best. Escapade are the most comfortable and versatile performance outdoor trousers available. Durable and hardworking and provide all the protection and freedom of movement you need for outdoor activity.
Escapade keep you comfortable all day, from valley floor to Alpine peak. Highly wind resistant thanks to the dense weave fabric, they’re also treated with an environmentally friendly PFC-free water repellent to give you extra protection from passing showers or flurries of snow. This softshell is highly breathable and wicking, keeping you at the right temperature throughout the day.
Using a 4-way stretch softshell fabric meant we could make Escapade a skinnier fit than many outdoor trousers. With articulated knees and less material to flap, catch or snag, they provide you with the freedom to focus on where your feet are going – whether that’s a hike, scramble, climb, or even bike ride. This softshell is much harder wearing than most leggings fabrics, so you can slide down scree or trample through woodland worry-free.
Escapade have a secure high-rise fit, sitting just below your natural waist with a zip fly and button closure. We’ve included 4 decent-sized jeans style pockets (big enough that you can actually use them!) and there’s a zipped pocket on the thigh that will fit your phone or compass.

Caring For Your DWR
Escapade use a durable water repellent treatment (DWR) for extra weather protection. To keep your DWR working at its best, wash your trousers regularly in pure soap or a specialist cleaner. You may also need to refresh the treatment about once or twice a year (depending on usage) using a reproofer. Using a spray-on reproofer maintains your trouser’s wicking ability.
Wash on a delicate cycle at 30˚C or hand wash with lukewarm water. Use a technical wash product (like Nikwax Tech Wash or Grangers Performance Wash) or pure soap. DO NOT use detergent, fabric conditioners or softeners. Rinse thoroughly in clean water. Line dry or tumble dry on low heat. You can also use a cool iron to reactivate the DWR.

Reducing our carbon footprint

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.
