Designed for freeriding and built to last. As well as providing protection against wet and chill, the Haglöfs Women's Khione Pants are breathable enough for even the most intense activity.
First things first: the two-layer Gore-Tex fabric used in these trousers protects you from anything the freeride weather might throw at you. And it's constructed to be both soft to the touch, providing an extra level of comfort while you're active, and breathable, meaning that the only discomfort you might feel from your exertions is muscle ache. The seat and waistband are lined with brushed tricot for comfort, while the insteps and snow gaiter are reinforced. These trousers are soft, and strong.
Silicone augmentation in the lower leg gaiters keep them in place when you're moving, while zipped vents in the legs allow you to control your temperature. Thigh pockets are angled so as to provide easy access, and zipped for security. Finally, easy adjustability – including a hook and loop-adjustable waistband – takes the time out of mid-activity tweaks.

Haglöfs was founded over a century ago in, Torsang, Sweden, by a forester’s son named Wiktor Haglöf, who designed and assembled a backpack for local workers. From those humble beginnings, the company has grown into one of the largest suppliers of outdoor clothing, and equipment in the world.
Each Haglöfs product is carefully designed to work in harmony with another, be it backpack, sleeping back, boot or clothing. Versatility is key; after all, it doesn’t matter if running a boggy UK trail, sending technical alpine climbs, or trekking in Patagonia; whatever you’re doing, it’s more enjoyable with kit you can trust.
Haglöfs core values of reliability, curiosity and pride are what sets it apart from other outdoor brands, and helps it to win over the not-so-easily-charmed customers. Reliability means that you can count on Haglöfs products to perform and last. Curiosity speaks to the company’s compulsion to constantly push forward, to innovate and evolve. Pride is about a true passion for everything they do, a passion perpetuated by the men and women who work for Haglöfs, themselves outdoor enthusiasts and former professionals.
