Hi Richard, Thinking of buying a pair of montane terra pants. Just wondering have you ever wore them? Many thanks paul.
Well, I do not have any experience of montane terra pants, I only have experience with Craghoppers Kiwi trousers. However, I decided to do some investigation into the montane terra pants as I may be in the market to obtain a new pair of hiking trousers myself. Here is the result of my investigation.

Montane Terra Pants Description
Montane Terra Pants are great for just about all outdoor people. They are trousers that have a light weight, are highly durable, versatile and protect you from the elements.
These outdoor trousers are built to not just endure just about all weather environments but are also resistant against everything else you toss at them. The pants are constructed with TACTEL fabrics that have a TEFLON coating. They will simply brush aside scuffs and scratches, are entirely waterproof and dry fast if they do happen to get wet.
In addition, they give you an excellent sun protection factor making these pants ideal in all weathers.
Montane Terra Pants have CORDURA reinforcement patches that provide additional protection around your more delicate body zones of seat and knees. They are highly resistant to abrasions and also have excellent strength for resisting tearing.
The comfort level is very good with excellent breatheability and freedom of movement. One great feature is the “mesh lined thigh vents” and the “lower leg side zips” that can be used to give increased breatheability when in hot climates.
Other features include an “active cut high lift crotch” together with “pre-bent knees” that enable you to achieve an excellent range of movement.
The waist is elasticated and there is also a webbing belt provided. Studs at the ankles enable you to adjust the fit on your legs too.
On a slight negative point, these trousers do not have many pockets. Personally, I like to have as many pockets as possible but you may not need more than the two zipped mesh pockets provided, that also provide extra ventilation.
In summary, Montane Terra Pants seem to be great for walking or hiking in the great outdoors, providing a good level of comfort, protection and durability.
