Montane Terra Pants

Hard-to-beat walking trousers that perform well in all but the hottest and coolest conditions. The sizing is quite generous, but to fine-tune the fit they’ve got a part-elastic waist and chunky, removable belt. The fabric is soft, supple, very lightweight and water-repellent, and dries really quickly. It also provides some wind protection, and is wonderfully breathable. There are wide, zip-access mesh panels down each thigh. The ankles can also be unzipped, and fastened in different positions to alter the fit round your boots. It’s also nice to see reinforced panels on the knees, seat and ankles. Lightweight, versatile trousers with a technical appearance that many walkers will love.
