Nature is full of fascinating places. Whether hiking in Austria, Germany or other regions: Especially this summer we enjoy the unforgettable moments of hiking with family and children all the more.
In order for the next tour to be a unique experience, the rucksack must be cleverly packed. Here you can find out what equipment you should definitely take with you on day tours, weekend tours and for the next summit.
From comfortable to fast – from flat to steep: There is the right clothing for every gait. For those who are active in all weather and want to feel comfortable, there is a need for sports clothing with a system.
A system that consists of several light layers according to the proven Löffler layer principle and is perfectly coordinated.
The cornerstone is the right functional underwear. transtex® functional underwear is the first link in the chain – and at the same time the most important. It lies directly on the skin and must therefore have special qualities.
The requirements vary depending on climate, temperature and intensity. That is why there is the right transtex quality for every application.
The climate-regulating layer in the middle must release the moisture further outwards. The material should therefore be breathable. Functional shirts in different qualities become loyal companions on all paths. The range extends from natural fibre shirts such as MERINO-TENCEL™ to light, functional materials such as Race-light or Softtouch.
The cut form also plays an essential role. While hikers prefer the classic polo shirt, casual loose-fit cuts and cut sleeves are also very much in fashion. Depending on requirements, Löffler offers various polo shirts, print shirts and tank tops for the next tour.
The designs and colours leave nothing to be desired: subtle mini prints in the form of honeycombs and diamonds – up to 3D textures will delight any sportsman or woman.
The outermost layer has the main task of protecting against the weather influences such as wind, rain or cold. It is important to ensure that the material is highly breathable and that moisture and heat are also released to the outside.
Depending on the intended use, you should choose a waterproof GORE-TEX or WPM pocket jacket, a warmer stretch fleece or a windproof windstopper jacket.
New hybrid jackets perfectly combine the advantages of all materials.
Through body mapping or the targeted use of materials, all requirements of the athlete are fulfilled. During the development of the new hybrid jackets, great importance was attached to optimal thermoregulation with a small pack size. This protects against unpleasant weather conditions and keeps the body warm. The jackets are ideal for carrying around and can be stored in the smallest pocket.
What belongs in your luggage naturally depends on the type of tour”.
Apart from the right clothing, the following equipment should not be missing, especially when hiking with children or animals:
Especially the latter is important in order to go into the mountains responsibly and do something good for the environment (and oneself). Our ecosystem should be protected and value should be placed on sustainably produced products. Responsibility towards people, the region and the environment is very close to our heart.
For decades, we have been producing sustainably and fairly in Austria and Europe, paying attention to the highest social standards, short transport routes and a clean environment.
However, the most resource-saving aspect is a long life cycle of the product. Löffler offers a repair service to prolong this life cycle. So you can enjoy your sportswear for a long time to come!

There are probably only a few products that have to be one thing above all: functional. In the case of a rain jacket, this is completely true. People often look for a jacket that is 100 % waterproof. But if the rain jacket is mainly used for sports, it has to fulfil another core function: It must be breathable so that you don't sweat from the inside out and moisture can be transported away from the body.
