Montane Mens Alpine Trek Pants, Lightweight stretch softshell pants for versatility and comfort

There’s no doubt it’s been a strange year. Looking back on 2020 you can easily find yourself reflecting upon the devastating affect of a global pandemic. For probably the vast majority of us it’s a year to file under “bin”, with focus firmly on the future.

This can include being around the people close to us, being in good health, or enjoying activities that don’t involve electronics or dashing from one commitment to another.
Particularly during lockdown, many of us have become reacquainted with basic forms of exercise and a love of the outdoors. Desperate to get out of houses, families have found and enjoyed walks that they didn’t know existed! Brits have discovered that they can enjoy a walk on their own, maybe while listening to podcasts or music. Children and teens have found that there are other things to do outside of virtual reality and social media.
At BCH Camping we have noticed that alongside our loyal, regular customers, a new customer base of walkers has emerged who have a newfound enjoyment of our incredible landscapes and countryside on local walks or longer hikes. It’s been a pleasure to serve and offer guidance to customers who are new to buying outdoor clothing and footwear, along with backpack essentials.
We’ve also noticed that walkers are becoming increasingly adventurous, with many keen to take on more challenging hikes.
This is encouraging. It’s great to think of people challenging themselves while enjoying dales, hills, woodland and mountains. But, as winter approaches, there will be more of a need than ever to ensure that hikers are prepared for taking on more difficult conditions. With this in mind, we’re featuring one of our most popular trek pants in this blog, the Montane Men’s Alpine Trek Pants.
There are many items within our clothing range that tick the boxes for being hike-ready, but these pants are one of the most versatile. They were designed for fast mountain walking and backpacking all year round, and on that they certainly deliver.
The Alpine Trek Pants are available in black, in sizes S, M, L, XL and XXL.

The fabric moves and stretches when you do, offering the versatility and comfort of free movement on ascents and descents.
