About this deal

There is no stretch in the standard version, but the articulated or pre-bent knees do compensate for this somewhat. The reinforced panels of Cordura material on the seat, knees, and ankles are essential for any long-distance hike or heavy usage over time.

Terra's low weight, small pack size, fast drying properties and extremely durable reinforcements make them the ideal choice for any serious adventure traveller or mountaineer. Another great outdoor soft shell pant from Montane the Terra Route Pant is a stretchy, breathable and tough mountain pant designed for general mountain walking and multi-day trekking. Made from TACTEL material, which is lightweight, soft like cotton, and doesn’t rustle against itself. I wanted lightweight, toughness, and adjustability with a balance between protection and breathability. These are backed by black netting, so your pasty white thighs won't show through them too obscenely, although I'm still unconvinced by the concept.The extra room in the trousers can make them more comfortable than some other outdoor fit trousers that take a slimmer fit approach, but Montane made sure not to add too much material to make for a baggy fit, the last thing you’d want when out in the mountains, especially when it gets windy. Terras are made from Tactel, a good, lightweight synthetic material that is as close to feeling like a natural fibre as synthetics get. You can also control the breathability of the pants with the thigh-high air vents which is such an underrated feature in most hiking pants. interesting articles, comprehensive gear reviews, breathtaking photographs and a vast and useful logbook system.

But they are also great with just normal undies below for sunny multi-pitch rock in the Aiguille Rouge or on Skye (yes – it has always been sunny when I've been there! The Terra Route Pants have been cut in Montane’s Classic Fit, Legwear that has been designed for all-round mountain use. I've found that high leg lifts or wide bridges are no problem in the Terras when wearing a harness but, like many other trousers, they lose some other their flexibility when they aren't being used with a harness .The trousers also have short zips on the ankle, although these serve no obvious purpose as I can't see why I would want to be taking the trousers off over a pair of boots. High-rising crotch allows you to get your knees up high when you need to and avoids the fabric bunching up. I've used Tactel trousers quite a lot in the past and think it is an excellent material for summer mountaineering in the Alps or Pyrenees, as well as for mountain rock routes in the UK.

The thigh vents seem a bit gimmicky and I would prefer thigh pockets as an alternative, but otherwise they are a well designed, cut and made pair of trousers, ideal for summer climbing in the mountains. I have managed to put a tiny hole in one pair thanks to some barbed wire but that small hole has never gotten bigger or compromised the strength. Offering great flexibility and comfort, they allow full freedom of movement when lifting your knees up high. Our team are working extended hours to get through this as quickly as possible, we ask you to be patient during this busy time.On a purely aesthetic front, their two tone pattern makes them look a little techy, yet I would quite happily sit in the pub in them at the end of the day without feeling a prat, not something you could say about the old school British summer alpine trousers of choice – Ron Hills.

The trousers are available in a variety of leg lengths, so in practice, they should fit a wide range of body shapes and types. I've been perfectly comfortable using Tactel trousers with just a light base-layer under them for –8 degree alpine starts from a tent high on the Argentiere glacier. Using super tough and lightweight materials you can hike in hot weather as well as stay resistant to wind and rain. If your Montane Hiking Pants get wet then so long as you can get out of the rain, they will dry using your body heat.Often labeled as technical hiking pants, the Montane Terra’s provide an excellent fit as well as having built-in adjustability. oz, the Montane Terra Pants are also lightweight and pack down smaller than a pair of socks (just about). They are my go-to choice for lightweight hiking trousers which are breathable for summer and perfect for layering up in winter.
