I want to start by saying, it is about time a designer asked us what we want. I hope you can deliver.
My request is variety for women. I can go into in outdoor store to buy travel / hiking gear and the men have variety to die for. Every for the women looks the same. And please, if you are doing trousers for women, think about the waist. Most brands are still doing the 80s high waste - oh yuk. Please functional yet in keeping with the fashion. When we are in the bush we don't mind, but eventually, we will have to come back to civilisation and been seen in these clothes.
So where can we buy these ultimate travel Pants /shirt?
I don't know if it's possible to make uber travel gear, which would accomodate everyone...but I vote for the following:
-pockets! (not too many, but enough to be able to actually hold things - hidden pocket would be excellent, and safer - perhaps a hidden clasp)
-should be quick to dry, and warm
-should look good - wearable anywhere (eg., you can wear jeans to a forest or a mall. doesnt look weird. doesnt stand out.) - colours that arent military greens
-should be made of a material that doesnt shrink so much!!
-should be comfortable
-if cool and dry and light...not seethrough!!
All are great suggestions. The last not being see through is a big one. Tan is a great color till it gets wet. Also the hidden zip pocket on the inside would awesome. Hides passport and cash.
