Terra Pants are lightweight, hard-wearing, weather resistant and highly breathable pants, suitable for a wide range of outdoor sports. The TACTEL Nylon outer provides a cotton-like feel, which doesn\'t rustle or crackle, but retains the durability and fast drying qualities of Nylon. The tight weave of TACTEL together with a TEFLON surface finish helps water to bead up and run off the fabric face. The Terra Pants\' low weight, small pack size, fast drying properties and extremely durable reinforcements make them the ideal choice for any serious adventure traveller or mountaineer.

These are my first pair of hiking pants. Prior to ordering I did not know what to expect considering the price difference from normal pants.
However, reading people's advice on backpacking gear, it seemed like hiking pants would be a good idea. I have to say the Terra pants by Montane have not been a disappointment at all.
The fit of the pants is perfect. For a 32" waist with a 34" inside leg the L size long leg fits snugly while the more tailored fit of the pant leg sits closely to your leg which, personally, I find extremely appealing and hard to find as I was researching hiking pants in this price range. Other tailored hiking pants seem to only pop up in the £100+ price range, so the Montane Terra pants are a gem. They fit well with either a standard hiking boot or a military type boot, as well as trainers - maybe even flip flops?
The extra protection on the knees comes in useful when having to climb as it protects your knees but also keeps the pants safe from rips and tears. The back protection gives extra comfort while sitting down.
However, I do find the fabric doesn't feel quite like cotton as stated in the description, which isn't a major concern or a reason not to buy the pants, and can certainly be forgiven considering the features this fabric provides you with.
The fast drying works well for sweating in hot climates as you feel dry and comfortable. Also a plus for washing, as you can go back to wearing the pants in no time. They are highly compact so will not be a burden if going lightweight on the road.
The articulated knees allow for extreme ease of movement which I find very useful and would probably only buy hiking pants which have this from now on. As these are my first hiking pants I cannot say whether other brands also offer this feature, but Montane seem to have put much effort into the design of the Terra pants so huge plus for that.
The free belt is also a nice addition and works well with the elasticated waist in case there is a change in the waist size from all the activity while hiking.
The colour scheme is very elegant and fits the purpose of the pants, though if flamboyance is desired then perhaps you should seek an alternative.
Overall these pants are an exceptional fit and a clear choice for a backpacker's kit on a moderate budget who are seeking a lightweight and compact pant for use at home or on travels. I am delighted to have found these pants as my first piece of hiking apparel and hope they will last me a long time!
Thanks for reading this review and I hope you found it helpful.
I read a lot of hype about these before purchase, struggled to find something that was a perfect comfortable fit but these are outstanding.
I'm a 36" waist and about 199.5cm(6foot6.5) tall the XL Long leg is a perfect fit.
