/ Montane Terra XT Salopettes
I´m in a proces of buying a new pair of winter pants. Does anyone has anything to say about above mentioned pants ( waterproofnes, durability ). I will be using them for winter mountaineering , ice climbing ,ski touring.
This failed experiment saw me going back to a stretch soft shell for more agility*
*agility being a relative term, and one which I hesitate to apply it to a punter like me
There seems to be very little information out there about the XT salopettes, so if you do get em let us know how they work out!
Having looked at many different climbing/mountaineering salopettes these seemed to be an absolute bargain last year at £120 (I think).......they certainly were.
The Terra trousers have short legs (don't know about the salopettes). I have a 34" leg and they are a couple of inches too short on me. They are supposed to do a long version, but nobody stocks them. Something to bear kin mind if you have long legs.
All i know is I had a Macpac jkt that used the EPIC fabric and it was tough, and the dwr was very very good,
I do wonder how the Terra XT might compare to Keela Munro salopettes. I know the Montane isn't supposed to be fully waterproof, while the Keela is - but is considered heavier.
