Outdoor experts and nature lovers: TYF Adventure, a sustainably-run shop, tested several Maier Sports products that symbolise our work. It was both an honour and a pleasure to read the test results carried out by such a renowned company.
TYF Adventure has made it their business to not only bring nature closer to their customers. In fact, they want to tell a love story that touches you and the way you live. And this is reflected in the selection of products in their shop. They only have sustainably produced items and we from Maier Sports are extremely proud that they also stock our outdoor clothing.
Every now and then our customers will send us reports on their adventures. This also includes TYF, who put several of our pants to an endurance test. The Ophit Plus W tights, Norit 2.0 W and Norit Short W Bermuda shorts are just a few examples that we have decided to list here.
Endurance test: The Ophit Plus W tights
Complete freedom of movement without any unpleasant friction. Ophit Plus W embraces the latest athleisure trend while uniting function with comfort. Bi-elastic, with a PFC-free, water-repellent finish and a practical flex zone on the back. Care-free hiking without any compromise.
Long strides over streams, larger stones or other obstacles are the order of the day when you’re trekking. And you often have to beat your way through the bushes on many a tour. An endurance test for all pants: as they not only have to be close-fitting enough to stop you getting caught on branches or thorns, but they shouldn’t chafe your skin either.
Ophit Plus does all that with ease as the fitting specialist Maier Sports stands for perfectly fitting outdoor clothing – including short and long sizes. That also applies to Ophit Plus whose flex zone on the back makes it stand out. It allows the pants to perfectly adapt to your body in any situation. Moreover, the abrasion-proof elements on the knees and posterior make sitting and kneeling on a stone or forest floor with these pants unproblematic. TYP’s evaluation: Endurance test passed.
Endurance test: Norit 2.0 W
Perfect in the summer and when your route includes stream crossings. Thanks to dryprotec technology, neither sweat nor moisture are a concern – and even challenging hiking tours are easily mastered.
The longest paths are also waiting to be mastered. Nothing to it with the right pants. The bi-elastic material and double-weave fabric allow the Norit 2.0 with a sporty cut to follow your every move, no matter how extreme. Just the thing for outdoor fans.
During the endurance test, TYF were impressed by the high level of comfort offered by Norit 2.0 W. With the technologies as well, such as dryprotec. Highly breathable, the fabric transports the moisture to the surface, leaving you nice and dry in your clothing. Meanwhile, the PFC-free water-repellent finish keeps moisture from the outside at bay – and if the pants get wet, they’ll dry in a jiffy.
Endurance test: Norit Short W Bermuda shorts
Airy, fresh, simply great. Short trousers are also a part of outdoor life. Reason enough for TYF Adventure to test the fabric, function and comfort of the Norit Short Bermuda shorts.
30 degrees, two hours’ ascent behind you and another three ahead of you. A strenuous, sweaty affair and all the roots and stones on the trail don’t necessarily make it any easier. The right gear allows you to simply enjoy your surroundings and hike. The Norit Short Bermuda shorts let you feel every refreshing breeze without having to compromise on the functions of trekking pants. These Bermuda shorts offer:
water-repellent PFC-free finish
Furthermore, the highly elasticated waist hugs the body perfectly. These resistant pants will not only pass every endurance test you may encounter on your hike, but they are also comfortable to wear. After all, everybody finds their right size at Maier Sports.
