Millet Pierra Menta Pant

No Longer Available

Perfectly matching the Pierra Ment’ Jacket or Hoodie, this technical pant from Millet betrays its intended purpose. That is, ski mountaineering. Articulated knees, reinforced scuff guards, elastic cuffs with side zips, and general awesomeness make this a great skimo pant. Breathable and abrasion-resistant Vueltex Knit fabric stretches in every direction without stretching your wallet. Millet has done it again.

  • Nylon, polyester, and spandex are blended into a stretchy, athletic fit.
  • Elastic waistband with drawcord help make these feel amazing to slip on.
  • Subtle fly zip and front pocket zip provide access to hidden thingies.
  • Elastic cuffs also have side zips for easy placement over ski boots.
  • Flatlock seams and Compositâ„¢ construction help prevent fraying or chafing.
  • Abrasion resistant fabric, reinforced knees, and scuff guards are designed to endure.
  • High-vis markings on the back and side of legs add safety to night races.
  • Named after the Pierra Menta race, aka the Tour de France of skimo.

Ben (used product regularly)
These pants are cozy in a wide variety of temperatures. They run small compared to American brands. I am usually a size 32 or 33, and the medium is just barely big enough for me. I like these because they are a skimo-style pant with a zippered leg opening instead of a stirrup which is better for general touring (ie, not using race boots). I am 6'1" with long legs and the mediums are plenty long, and a nice trim cut with good mobility. I am not giving 5 stars because it needs more pockets. Why only one front pocket and no back pockets? Its really annoying, I may add my own pockets at some point. I would rate 3.5 stars if I could, solid pants but the lack of pockets is a big downside.

Question from Brian h
Hey, I'm trying to lighten up my girlfriend's kit and she fancies the CI Century pant that I wear. She's a skinny athletic woman and I see the Century Pant does not come in a small. These do. I was wondering how the Millet pant compares to the Crazy Idea. Thanks.
Answer from jbo
Hey Brian, CI is making a women's century pant this season, called the B-Side. We expect our shipment in October, which will reload the men's sizes as well (including small). However to answer your question, the pants are comparable in terms of athletic performance. The PM is a bit more free-flowing, and without the reinforcements in the knee area. The elastic closure at the bottom hugs the boot a bit tighter, but the overall weight and feel is similar.

This is a good lightweight touring pant, even a race pant if you don't like lycra speed suits. Right out of the wrapper, I added stirrups to keep the pant leg down over my Alien boots. (Dynafit's similar pant already has the stirrup.) The lack of cut-outs for buckles may be an issue for Dynafit boot wearers, if you are also inclined to add a stirrup. Otherwise, I don't think the lack of cut-outs for buckles is an issue. On the second day of use, the crotch seam broke. (Sutured the tear and kept on skiing in them.) I suspect this is an isolated quality issue as the remainder of seams look good and a similar Millet Touring Shield Jacket appears to have excellent quality.
I'd only buy it again if the similar Dynafit pant is sold out.

Thanks for the feedback Kerry. FYI Millet warranty is good for things like popped seams. Although in your case it probably wouldn't make since since you had invested time in an alteration.

Question from Jon B
A couple of questions. 1) Do these pants have any provision for Dynafit side throw top buckles? 2) Does a large size fit a size 32-34 waist? Given the comment at the bottom of the size chart saying the sizes have changed, I couldn't tell if it was the current chart. Thanks
Answer from jbo
Hi Jon. These don't have buckle cutout areas. The entire bottom is the scuff guard material, with a side zip that is backed by the main fabric. The chart is current, so yes, 32-34 is large. Same size was called medium last year.
