Why Ineo pants are the ultimate women’s leggings

Discover the ultimate women’s leggings for all your adventure needs! We breakdown the reasons why every woman who loves to explore should own a pair of Ineo Pants. 

Looking for women’s legwear that will help you do more and go further, faster this season? Montane’s Ineo pants have been available to buy for a few years now and they have gone on to become our most well loved and raved about piece of women’s legwear. 

Their flattering and timeless design, teamed with tough adventure-proof materials, come together to give you a versatile piece that you’ll never want to take off. Our original pair of Ineo Pro Pants have been around a few years now, but this classic design is still as popular as ever. In fact, this season, athlete Jenny Tough even chose them as her most versatile bit of kit in her adventure wardrobe.  

Since then, the Ineo range has expanded to include a lighter pair of pants, perfect for summer adventures as well as a more durable pair of pants for tougher activities, such as climbing. But the original Ineo Pro Pants are our all-round pair of women’s trousers - suitable for a wide range of activities. Here’s just a few reasons why we can’t get enough of them…

 1. Adventure-proof
The Ineo Pro Pants use Mala stretch fabric which is tough, abrasion-resistant and snag proof. This makes them suitable for lots of activities in the great outdoors, from scrambling, to rock hopping, hiking and even fastpacking.

2. Forged in British conditions
We know that the UK has some pretty changeable weather conditions! That’s why we’ve made sure these leggings are both wind and water resistant, treated with PFC free DWR. This means it’s friendlier on the planet, whilst helping water to bead off the leggings, keeping you protected. It also makes them fast drying!

3. Breathable
When you’re on the move, sweat is going to occur, but the breathability of these leggings mean you’ll avoid sweat issues, even on hotter days. That’s because mala stretch wicks moisture away, helping to keep you dry and comfortable.

4. Movin’ on up
Stretchy, articulated knees and a gusseted crotch means they don’t hinder your movements and you can jump, scramble or cartwheel (depending on what suits you in the moment!) to your heart's content.

5. Flattering and comfortable
Mala stretch is not only incredibly tough, but the materials sit close and flatter your curves without being restrictive – much like a gym legging, but with far more weather and abrasion resistance.

Fantastic quality legging! The Ineo lites have a nice high waist band and never fall down. They’re lovely and light for spring and summer adventures. I would definitely recommend it to other women who love to explore.” Bridgeen Kelly, Ineo Lite Pants

These leggings are fab! Really comfy and a great fit. They come with reinforced knees and bum, as well as being waterproof enough to perch on a damp rock or tree stump for a sandwich and tea.” Helen Smith, Ineo Tough Pants
