Montane Mens Terra Route Pants RRP £95
About this deal
One of the great things about Tactel nylon is that it is highly breathable and the Terras do not feel clammy, even when hiking hard. 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 – I wouldn't particularly recommend them for bouldering for example, although they seem to work fine when worn for scrambling. 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!

As you can see in the second and third photos, I just tend to roll them up a bit and that works fine, but actually with the poppers, you can have the ankles nicely trim so as you can see your feet just fine with them fully unrolled (see first photo).If you are in a constant downpour you are going to want some waterproof trousers over the top of these. Montane Terra Pants are hard-wearing, lightweight, and resistant to all kinds of weather and abuse on the trail.

I read the blog of one woman who had walked from Lands End to John O'Groats and was complaining that at the end of the hike, whilst her partners' Terras looked like new, her alternative brand of walking trousers looked like, well, she had walked the length of the country in them. The reinforced panels of Cordura material on the seat, knees, and ankles are essential for any long-distance hike or heavy usage over time. LD Mountain Centre does not accept responsibility for items being delayed through customs/ security checks or adverse weather conditions.This is a real shame as for climbers, thigh pockets are really useful, being easily accessible below the harness leg loops and a good place to stow a photocopy of the topo or similar when the normal pockets are hidden under a harness. interesting articles, comprehensive gear reviews, breathtaking photographs and a vast and useful logbook system. oz, the Montane Terra Pants are also lightweight and pack down smaller than a pair of socks (just about).

Stretchy sections of fabric and articulated knees improve the fit and range of movement, making them perfect for high trekking routes. The Granite Stretch fabric offers great levels of stretch, so the Terra Route Pants offer excellent levels of comfort and freedom of movement.I've done a few days of rock climbing on sandpaper-like granite with mine now, but you wouldn't know it. They are my go-to choice for lightweight hiking trousers which are breathable for summer and perfect for layering up in winter.
