The Montane Skyline Pants are stretchy softshell mountain pants with abrasion resistant outer fabric and hard wearing kick patches, designed to take abuse in the mountains.
Designed for alpine climbing, scrambling and technical mountain walking, the Skyline Pants use SCHOELLER® 3XDRY® softshell, a mid-weight nylon face fabric with stretch which offers excellent dual abrasion and wind resistance. Technical features such as a variety of pocket options and tough SCHOELLER® KEPROTEC® KEVLAR® instep reinforcements make these pants perfect for technical cold weather mountain activities.
Montane's Skyline Pants aren't our lightest softshell pants (more mid-weight) but are a good weight considering the soft wicking inner throughout. The SCHOELLER 3XDRY fabric is windproof, stretchy and abrasion resistant, combined with the KEVLAR Kick patches make it quite a durable pant.
Feature wise you've got 2 front zip pockets and a thigh pocket but no back pockets. There's even a small hidden pocket inside one of the front pockets which is good for storing emergency cash or cards that you don't want to accidentally fall out when opening the pocket. The belt is removable and all the zips have zip pullers whhc is handy when wearing chunky gloves.
Fit wise they are on the closure side which is better suited to scramblers and walkers as no one likes loose fabric blowing in the wind or getting caught on rocks.
