How Do They Fit?

The original Terra Pants had a classic loose fit which at the time was the desired look and function that outdoor enthusiasts wanted. These days you can get different fits in the Terra range, where each one better suits a certain set of activities. Slimmer pants like the Terra Mission & Super Terra are more suitable for climbing and mountaineering where the last thing you want is for a trouser leg to get caught on a rocky outcrop. Looser pants like the Terra Converts & Terra Pack Pants are more suited to warmer climes & travelling.
