Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been doing a bit more sewing. I’ve replaced the elasticated cuffs on my Montane Featherlite Marathon windproof with Velcro fasteners. Although it takes a bit of time to do, having adjustable cuffs on windproofs is well worthwhile. While I was at it, I replaced the black Velcro fasteners on my blue Featherlite jacket with blue ones as well. Aesthetically, it’s more pleasing 🙂
Another little project was to sew a snap fastener on to the belt of my new Montane Terra trousers (not pants!!!). I copied this idea from Rohan. The belt on the new style Terras has a habit of slipping through the first belt loop. It’s a bit of a fiddle to re-thread it. Using a snap fastener secures the belt and avoids this hassle. I wish they’d go back to the old style enclosed belt. While they’re at it they should make an all grey version rather than one with black knees and seat. Montane could also revive the old style Terra zip-offs as well.
