Outdoorhose

Outdoor trousers.

 
apparel

For sports and exercise outside, outdoor trousers are mostly made of robust and highly elastic fabrics. Fabrics and seams should follow every movement, yet still look perfectly smooth later when relaxing. Quick-drying sports gear, with its many practical pockets, with or without zippers or Velcro fastenings, makes high demands on the durability of threads. But with the appropriate sewing thread from AMANN these challenges are easily mattered.

 

AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

As a universal sewing thread for outdoor trousers we recommend sabac 120 in combination with sabaTEX 120 for serging or coverstitch seams. 

Depending on the outer fabric and the sewing conditions such as the stitch density and stitch type, it might be worthwhile selecting other qualities from the AMANN range:

  • for elastic fabrics sabaFLEX
  • for fine coverstitch seams sabaTEX 250
  • for seams subject to special demands Serafil or ONYX
