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 appear like denims, or if you wish to have a look at it a unique manner, they’re denims designed for the good open air.
With full hips and an enormous bum (I blame that on my Jamaican genes relatively than cake), I often go for excessive waisted trousers that sit on, or simply above the pure waistline to present me probably the most flattering match, however strolling trousers that don’t sit too low down for my liking are literally fairly laborious to come back by.
Each time I’m gifted merchandise, I may be fairly nervous making an attempt issues on for the primary time and I breathed a sigh of aid after I unfolded the denims once they arrived, they undoubtedly appeared like they’d match and I pulled them on and realised that this, THIS is how a very good pair of denims ought to match!
The primary issues I observed 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 unquestionably extra becoming given their beneficiant minimize.
I often select lengthy trousers/denims if I’ve the selection, however the ACAI Ourdoor Slim Match Denims are an ordinary 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 present me a little bit of a spot between socks or my footwear, so It was good to have technical denims that mimicked my standard look.
I’ve all the time discovered shopping for strolling trousers laborious as I simply don’t just like the match and minimize of most of them which are typically a straight leg fashion, resulting in trousers which might be slim becoming on the thigh however actually vast and saggy from the knee down across the calf which for my part simply doesn’t look trendy or notably cool.
- Extraordinarily snug and stretchy
- Gentle and ethereal cloth, they actually really feel like I’m carrying a pair of sunshine denim denims
- I really like the form, though described as skinny, I’d say they’ve extra of a mother jean match
- Water beads off them, so are high quality if you happen to get caught in a rain bathe
- Vastly versatile, I can put on these any time
- They maintain their form nicely and don’t get baggier the extra days you put on them earlier than washing them
- Extremely packable
- They’re fairly brief
- Water repellent relatively than waterproof or absolutely waterproof
- Grangers Wash + repel liquid is advisable for each 3-5 washes
I really like how gentle 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 at the moment of 12 months, however the minimize and stretch of them means if the climate actually is dire, there’s sufficient room to let you 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 advisable that you simply use a product corresponding to Grangers Wash + Repel Liquid nevertheless, that is a lot much less of a faff than having to re-wax my Fjallraven strolling trousers, it simply signifies that it’s essential to hold observe of roughly what number of occasions 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 really like the excessive waist, the minimize of the denims and I actually like the truth that there’s a safe zip pocket on the rear too.
Appears apart, in fact, they should do the job out within the wild, and having worn these numerous occasions on my outside adventures, together with on Peak District hill stomps and blustery autumn coastal walks, they carry out brilliantly.
They’re exceptionally gentle and cozy and while often between sizes which implies generally I’m a 14 and generally I’m a 16, I selected the bigger dimension (34″) which implies I can use a belt to cinch within the roomy waist and there’s loads of room for me to put on brief thermal leggings beneath when the climate begins to get colder.
They’re tremendous stretchy which implies I’d be as glad climbing in them as I’m climbing and I cherished watching rain simply bead and roll off the trousers due to their water repellency skills. That mentioned, they don’t seem to be 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 totally waterproof coating and with a longer-length leg choice 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 time, Autumn and Spring outside 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 believe I’ll be carrying and raving about these for fairly a while.
