Montane Women’s BMC Terra Ridge Pants | Review

Montane give their classic mountain pant some BMC-inspired touches

Why We Chose The Montane Women’s BMC Terra Ridge Pants: Durable, all-day comfort, useful features.

If you’ve spent a bit of time in English and Welsh mountains, or are at least planning to get out in these stunning areas sometime soon, you’ve got a few organisations to thank for the privilege, one of them being the British Mountaineering Council (BMC). They’ve long been upholding our right to access the wild and protected areas found within our national parks and on our coasts while also raising awareness for conservation issues and fundraising for landscape restoration and preservation projects.

“We’ve got a lot to thank for the BMC’s selfless work towards conserving and upholding access to many of our national treasures.”

This new limited edition product from Montane celebrates their partnership with that organisation as their recommended clothing and pack brand. It’s a collaboration that takes the existing Terra Pant design and adds a BMC twist – complete with BMC colour ways and branding.

The Terra, which has made a previous appearance in our Outdoor 100 product guide, has become a bit of a classic for the UK hillwalker. It’s a simple yet tough and reliable design that’s able to stand up to the new kids on the block and teach them a thing or two in terms of how a durable pant should be made.

There are now many iterations of the Terra, covering every activity that you could possibly need a pair of outdoor trousers to do; from warm summer hiking to winter alpine use. These, the Terra Ridge are designed with three-season climbing and scrambling in mind, with the key aspect being the ‘Granite Stretch’ fabric which is built into the knees for durability against coarse rock and also added to the instep to avoid crampons catching/damaging the pants.

The fit is loose but still dynamic and well-articulated, allowing a wide stride and fitting comfortably underneath waterproof overtrousers. Ankle adjustment lets you tighten the pants further around the boots. Features include two zippered hand pockets, two long zipped thigh vents (where the BMC colours are found), a security pocket on the back and an integrated hipbelt.

Only a few of these special edition pants have been produced, so act quick if you want to get your hands on some.
