The 3L Guardian Shell pants from Ortovox have a thin Merino lining that is fully laminated with the Dermizax® EV membrane from Toray. The membrane not only keeps wind and water out - but it can also be characterized by high breathability, great elasticity, and easy care.
Properties that are required on every freeride day.
The pants have a slightly higher cut and are reinforced with Swisswool in the back area. The stiffened Swisswool protects against impacts while providing warming comfort and buffering large amounts of moisture. The Elastic-Fit system, an elastic, wide velcro system that offers simple yet effective width adjustment, ensures an optimal fit. The leg hem has a large edge protector and integrated gaiters. There are generous vents slightly set back at thigh level so that even longer ascents can be mastered without any problems.
Ortovox came to life with the invention of the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. With their passion for keeping skiers and snowboarders safe, Ortovox has grown into one of the biggest producers of avalanche safety gear on the market. In 1995 they added merino underwear to their selection, and we have been hooked ever since!
