Like a ram guards a flock.
At least, that's what you would do if you were a ram and a neighboring flock needed safeguarding. And much like your ram-like instincts, 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 highest breathability ratings around, and touts serious waterproof protection for powder days.
Ortovox lined the Guardian Shell in moisture managing, naturally odor-resistant, and superlight merino wool for comfort. Not only that, but the 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. Additionally, there are zippered vents at each side for circulated airflow, and reinforced cuffs protect footwear from ski edges and crampons. Not to mention, the clip up leg bottoms raise the cuffs when you're trekking over dirt and asphalt.

The worst 700 dollars I have ever spent
Talk about a case of massive marketing and zero R&D! The pants have a single hollow button at the waist that's at best good for kids clothing. So every time you need to use your core (which naturally you do all the time when you ski) the button unbuttons! Just how stupid of a design is that???? Did anyone at the company even try these pants in real life???? There are no belt loops, and no other way to keep the pants on your waste! To make matters just a bit worse if that's even possible the pants waste line is all the way up to your rib cage, and if you use these with Ortovox jackets the jacket's snow guard is over the pants and button. So now you have to take your gloves off, and open your jacket to get to the button so you can keep your pants on!
Don't waste your money!
