The Norröna Recon Gore-Tex Pro Pants is practically legendary! The flagship of the Recon series by this Norwegian manufacturer has been developed in collaboration with the military for frequent use in the wild and can withstand even the most miserable conditions over the long term!
These hardshell pants are made of a triple-layered Gore-Tex Pro Shell laminate. They also have a protective, smooth inner lining which has waterproof membrane and a high quality, abrasion-resistant outer material made of Nylon laminated into one layer. This creates a thin, yet incredibly durable, breathable and long-lasting fabric. These trousers can withstand contact between the knees and rock or ice and direct contact with thorns and twigs!
In addition to that, all of the zips are from Aquaseal and feature a sealing rubber lip so absolutely no water can get in. The large teeth also make them easier to use, and this still applies in icy weather. Its long zip pulls also make them easy to use when wearing lined gloves.
There are zips on all four pockets as well as on the long ventilation openings on the thighs. These pockets are big enough for a multitool, GPS and map. Your mobile phone and torch can also be securely waterproofed in here.
These trousers have a loose cut and can be combined with suspenders. The width of the legs can be adjusted at the hem to fit perfectly around the shaft of a boot. This prevent snow and dirt from getting in. The lining is slightly napped and can be worn directly on the skin. If you need more comfort, especially in cooler weather, then we recommend wearing a (thin) baselayer, merino wool if possible, underneath. A large belt can be fed through the belt loops to provide a more secure hold.
The Recon Gore-Tex Pro Pants Hardshell Pants by Norröna are the perfect trousers for frequent outdoor use, for those times when things get more intense and you cans always keep an eye on your equipment. When hunting, working in the woods, mountaineering and on expeditions or even just for general use this is the most robust and reliable leg protection.
These pants were developed for long-lasting usage.
