Leggings can be the most comfortable hiking gear. Why not find one that fits your shape and needs the best.

What we consider hiking apparel staples have changed over time. Over the last few years, I have discovered that hiking in tights can be way more comfortable than my usual choice in pants. They are incredibly versatile and comfortable. Hiking leggings move with you in the most flexible way which allows you to have much more mobility than you could imagine. The best part about a good pair of hiking leggings is the fact that you can wear them on their own or use them as a layer. And did we mention how small and lightweight leggings are to pack?
