The Ortovox Men's Guardian Shell 3L Pant shields you from the snow when you tour the backcountry or hit the resort. This pant's Toray Dermizax EV membrane boats some of the breathability ratings around, as well as highly rated waterproof protection for powder days. Ortovox lined the Guardian Shell in moisture managing, naturally odor resistant, and superlight merino wool for comfort. Merino wool offers thermal regulation that cools you down when you're warm and warms you up when you're cold. Ortovox also equipped the Guardian Shell with Swisswool Back Protection to protect your lumbar vertebra. The waist also features an Elastic Fit System for a snug fit. There are zippered vents at each side for circulated airflow, and reinforced cuffs protect the internal boot gaiters from ski edges and crampons. The clip up leg bottoms raise the cuffs when you're trekking over dirt and asphalt.
