Firstlook: Montane Featherlite Pants

Weight: 129 gramm/4,5 oz (size M, incl. Stuffsack)
Fabrics: Pertex Microlight Mini Ripstop, PEAQ AIR, 3M Scotchlite Reflective
Color: Black

This wind/water resistant pant is just the ideal item to carry on long-distance runs, hiking trips, mountaineering and cycling. The packsize is comparable to an apple and can be stuffed easily into its mash sack. It has reflective parts on the front and back which makes night travel more safe. What I really like is the zipper which runs up to the knee for ventilation or for dressing without removing the shoes. The pant has four velcro straps on each leg to adjust the width on the shin part which is really nice in wind or to tighten it for cycling and running. It has elasticated ankles and waist. The waist commes with an adjustable draw cord. It feels really soft and nice on the skin too and the fit is really good. As I know from many other clothing I use which is made of Pertex it is really fast drying.
Perfect pant to leave camp on chilly mornings or to hike on windy ridges without the feeling you are wearing too much.

  1. I agree these pants are ideal for many trips, I carried them this weekend just in case. I also used them for my 3 week trip in Lapland last summer and was quite happy with them, though there was one day where windblown rain made for an unpleasant feeling otherwise they were perfect. I would be reluctant to use heavier pants in summer conditions.

    Looking forward to your long term report.
