Built to alleviate excess perspiration on backcountry tours, the Ortovox Women's Medola Pant features a unique shell crafted from merino wool fibers interwoven with robust nylon fabric. Merino wool fibers are soft and breathable for comfort in a wide range of temperatures, and nylon adds durability and weather resistance.
Since it's tightly woven, the merino-nylon shell retains wind and water-resistance, so you're not susceptible to the elements. Cordura cuff reinforcements prevent the bottoms from ripping and fraying, especially across thick brush and bony, early-season conditions. The cuffs feature both zipper and hook-and-loop adjustments for a proper fit over your ski boots.
The pant's higher cut along the backside retains full coverage while the adjustable waist prevents deep snow from working inside. It's compatible with Ortovox suspenders (sold separately) for better protection on blower powder days. Along the outer thighs, zippered vents quickly dump excess warmth on sweaty climbs. And for plentiful storage, hip pockets are complemented by a large map pocket, complete with its own inner pocket for housing small essentials.
