Since lockdown, my entire life has revolved around being outdoors. I have fallen madly and deeply in love with nature again and the more time I started spending hiking, walking and kayaking, I realised I needed to invest in some high-quality outdoor clothing.
After weeks of searching the internet, I stumbled across the wonderful team at ACAI Activewear.
I got in touch and they kindly sent me a pair of their Casual Stroll Pants in the colour Storm Grey. I had always struggled to find a pair of outdoor trousers, often finding they were too baggy, or they weren’t waterproof.
I have now been wearing them consistently for over a month, and I love them.
I have put them to the test multiple times, most recently during a hiking trip to Scotland, where we spent four days road tripping around Loch Lomond, stopping at stunning waterfalls, and never-ending lochs.
My ultimate go-to during this weeklong road trip was my @acai_activewear Casual Stroll Pants, which were perfect for practical exploring, whilst staying stylish on the road.
The stretchy softshell material of the ACAI Activewear Casual Stroll Pants made them really flexible, especially when climbing rocks and over fences, and the quick-drying material with a built-in dry hook was incredibly useful when we were on the road, in a motorhome.
The ACAI Activewear Casual Stroll Pants were high waisted and elasticated at back and ankle for superior comfort fit, meaning I wasn’t opting out of style, for practicality. And the trousers also had a concealed back pocket with zip pocket and two front pockets.
The pants really are perfect for women, and that’s no surprise considering they are designed by women, for women. They incorporate everything I needed from an outdoor trousers: style, flexibility and breathability.
The DWR water repellent finish will keep you dry in light showers, and during our trip to Bracklin Falls, it started to rain and not once did I worry about getting wet.
If you do get wet, and muddy, the ACAI Activewear Casual Stroll Pants are easily cleaned with a damp cloth, and the durable nylon material features 4–way stretch to make sure there is no restriction of movement.
The ACAI Activewear Casual Stroll Pants are perfect for both lifestyle activities like walking the dog, and hiking up waterfalls.
ACAI Activewear Casual Stroll Pants £ 72.00 Available in Storm Grey or Black.
My Travel Tips and Recommendations
To book flights, I always use flight search engine Skyscanner, I regularly use the Everywhere tool to find the cheapest places to travel. It’s how I get to travel so much all around the world. I find it the easiest way to compare flight prices across airlines and get the best deals.
For accommodation, I usually book most of my hotels or hostels through Booking.com. I love using this platform as it provides me with some amazing deals for accommodation all around the world. Or if you prefer, I also recommend using Airbnb. If you haven’t signed up with Airbnb already, you can use this link to get £25 off your first visit!
Picking travel insurance that covers you in all eventualities is an essential part of planning a trip for every single person. If you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel. You never know what’s around the corner.
