Is it just me? Very uncomfortable
seemingly well made and robust
short leg lengths unavailable
very very scratchy on the inside leg seams!
fit not comfy around the waist
material generally hard and uncomfortable
not suitable for winter
Having seen how much other people raved about these trousers I tried a pair. I cannot put into words how uncomfotable these trousers were. The main issue was the inside leg seams which couldnt be more itchy if you had put porcupines down there. Apart from the fact that they were too long for my waist size, the fit wasnt right either. The material is horrible and scratchy and I can imagine ripping these off on the trail 2 miles in.
Alot of people rave about them but I just could not abide them. Sorry guys a definite no for me
Imperial Dave would not recommend this product

LIGHT, QUICK DRYING, WATER RESISTANT BUT POCKETS A DISASTER
Shed water well
Pocket cut means they empty themselves every time you sit down.
Only one zipped pocket.
Everything you might want from walking trousers apart from the irritating pockets. They are cut so that stuff rolls out of them when you sit.
Such a shame. I certainly wouldnt buy another pair until Montane sort the pockets.

Lightweight, windproof with large zipped hip pockets.
Highly wind resistant and quick drying.
Front pockets allow loose change to slide out. Cut is very long possibly a 34" leg. Shorter leg length people will have to use the ankle studs, otherise the rear of the trousers will drag on the floor even over close fitting footwear such as slippers. A close cut, possibly the crotch design is flawed(?,) means that when climbing you feel your thighs pulling against the trouser. I also found that the trousers don't do a good job of holding in one's shirt at the back. The trousers are inclined to slip down the waist whilst walking and I had to pull them back up every 2 hours. Belt must be pulled in tight which helps but doesn't completely solve the problem I think the fabric is inclined to slide over some other fabrics. Not as breathable as expected and had to use the thigh vents when hill climbing.
They look good. However I found that the inability to hold in my shirt at the back means that I can't even consider them for casual use. Their redeeming features are that they do dry out quickly and they're very wind resistant. They look and feel durable and compared with say Schoeller fabric trousers they're good value. These trousers once you put them on feel 'stifling' as though they trap a 'micro climate' within them that doesn't change easily and quickly.
