Montane have produced a Limited Edition range of clothing with the proceeds going Mountain Rescue in England and Wales.
I’ve got the Dynamic Stretch Pants in for test to see what the score is.
The big story is the fabric, a new version of Polartec’s Powershield softshell. It feels good, inside and out, and has a decent balance between easy stretch and keeping its shape. Good wind resistance and DWR too.
There’s a lot of detail in there as well. A map sized zipped leg pocket with a little expansion gusset, two big front pockets, zipped fly with a dress-trouser styled two button fastening on the semi-elasticated waist and a webbing belt with a proper big buckle on it.
There’s a little bit of articulation at the knees, and in general, movement is good with the slightly relaxed cut and the stretch fabric. The ankles adjust with Montane’s favourite popper system.
There’s the nice new embroidered Montane logo, an embroidered Polartec logo plus the “Limited Edition” red zip and patch on the pocket. Makes them look team, which I kinda like. The black and red of the whole range is pretty sexy I think.
I’ve happily walked and biked in them without any problems, but I’ll keep updating as I go.
Looking at it right now though, the £65 tag on these makes them look like a steal.
