Montane Mens Terra Route Pants RRP £95
About this deal
Fiona Reid and Mike Watson try out some light softshell trousers designed for summer in the Alps, but equally suited to climbing, scrambling and hillwalking closer to home. 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.

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). Offering great flexibility and comfort, they allow full freedom of movement when lifting your knees up high. The part elasticated waistband means that you don’t necessarily need a belt, but the one included is pretty useful so you might as well keep it on.
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. High-rising crotch allows you to get your knees up high when you need to and avoids the fabric bunching up. Montane Terra Pants are hard-wearing, lightweight, and resistant to all kinds of weather and abuse on the trail.
