- Great pants, but lacking functionality
It's kind of sad to see Montane come so close to perfection but fall short over something a simple as a pocket. I also don't understand why they don't put flys in this and the Featherlite pants. Are they designed by women who seeking payback for indoor plumbing? They are totally missing the multi-purpose functionality of these pants.
The fitted shape of the legs is better than some of the other options like Mtn Hardware's Compressor pants and they area lot cheaper, but still great quality. I wanted to avoid approaching the $200 mark.
To solve the problem of pockets and "frontside access", I cut the fly and back zipper pocket out of an old pair of ski pants. Then I bribed a dude I know in the Pearl Izumi prototype department who got them sewn in for me. I also made a small cargo pocket and attached it to the thigh for access through my shell vents. It only cost me $30 for a case of good beer, but unless you have a prototype guy, making these pants perfect is going to cost another $70 at your local taylor.
