What we thought
Are they denims or are they strolling trousers? The reply is sure. They’re each. Primarily they’re strolling trousers designed to seem like denims, or if you wish to take a look at it a special manner, they’re denims designed for the good outside.
With full hips and an enormous bum (I blame that on my Jamaican genes fairly than cake), I often go for excessive waisted trousers that sit on, or simply above the pure waistline to offer me probably the most flattering match, however strolling trousers that don’t sit too low down for my liking are literally fairly laborious to return by.
Every time I’m gifted merchandise, I might be fairly nervous making an attempt issues on for the primary time and I breathed a sigh of aid once I unfolded the denims once they arrived, they undoubtedly regarded like they’d match and I pulled them on and realised that this, THIS is how a great pair of denims ought to match!
The primary issues I seen had been the excessive waist and the truth that the denims are mega stretchy. Though they’re known as slim match denims, the label on the denims calls them mother denims, and I’d say that description is certainly extra becoming given their beneficiant lower.
I often select lengthy trousers/denims if I’ve the selection, however the ACAI Ourdoor Slim Match Denims are a normal size and are designed to sit down simply above the ankle.
For me, that’s nice as I often put on each my skinnies and mother denims rolled on the backside to offer me a little bit of a niche between socks or my sneakers, so It was good to have technical denims that mimicked my regular look.
I’ve all the time discovered shopping for strolling trousers laborious as I simply don’t just like the match and lower of most of them which are usually a straight leg model, resulting in trousers which might be slim becoming on the thigh however actually vast and dishevelled from the knee down across the calf which in my view simply doesn’t look fashionable or notably cool.
- Extraordinarily comfy and stretchy
- Mild and ethereal cloth, they actually really feel like I’m carrying a pair of sunshine denim denims
- I like the form, though described as skinny, I’d say they’ve extra of a mother jean match
- Water beads off them, so are tremendous if you happen to get caught in a rain bathe
- Vastly versatile, I can put on these any time
- They maintain their form effectively and don’t get baggier the extra days you put on them earlier than washing them
- Extremely packable
- They’re fairly quick
- Water repellent fairly than waterproof or totally waterproof
- Grangers Wash + repel liquid is really helpful for each 3-5 washes
I like how mild the denims really feel and so they additionally fold down actually small too. The truth that these denims are fairly light-weight would possibly put some off, particularly right now of yr, however the lower and stretch of them means if the climate actually is dire, there’s sufficient room to assist you to simply put on leggings or a thermal layer beneath them and nonetheless not really feel overly restricted.
The opposite factor to notice is that for each 3-5 washes, It’s really helpful that you simply use a product comparable to Grangers Wash + Repel Liquid nonetheless, that is a lot much less of a faff than having to re-wax my Fjallraven strolling trousers, it simply signifies that you might want to preserve monitor of roughly what number of instances they’ve been washed.
I can’t rave in regards to the match and luxury of those trousers sufficient. They’re an astonishingly good, true-to-size match, I like the excessive waist, the lower of the denims and I actually like the truth that there’s a safe zip pocket on the rear too.
Appears to be like apart, in fact, they should do the job out within the wild, and having worn these numerous instances on my out of doors adventures, together with on Peak District hill stomps and blustery autumn coastal walks, they carry out brilliantly.
They’re exceptionally mild and comfy and while often between sizes which suggests generally I’m a 14 and generally I’m a 16, I selected the bigger measurement (34″) which suggests I can use a belt to cinch within the roomy waist and there’s loads of room for me to put on quick thermal leggings beneath when the climate begins to get colder.
They’re tremendous stretchy which suggests I’d be as completely happy climbing in them as I’m mountain climbing and I cherished watching rain simply bead and roll off the trousers because of their water repellency skills. That mentioned, they aren’t waterproof, so keep in mind they actually aren’t an all-weather strolling trouser alternative.
Sooner or later, I’d like to see ACAI develop the identical trousers however with a completely waterproof coating and with a longer-length leg possibility too. That may make these a real 5/5 product and a completely unimaginable all-season trouser.
Regardless of a few minor gripes although, for Summer season, Autumn and Spring out of doors adventures the ACAI Slim Match Denims make a superb, super-versatile alternative. Are they definitely worth the £110 price ticket? Sure, and so far as strolling gear goes, I feel I’ll be carrying and raving about these for fairly a while.
