Very robust, technical softshell pants with integrated gaiters for high alpine tours.


  • Water and wind-resistant and highly breathable
  • Particularly robust
  • Fine merino wool on the inside 

Mighty glacial crevasses, combined rock and ice terrain and impressive summits: On alpine tours, we need clothing that is adaptable and that we can 100% rely upon. This is exactly where our WESTALPEN SOFTSHELL line comes into play: A combination of scuff-resistant MERINO NATURETEC RIPS inserts, NATURETEC LIGHT material and fine merino wool on the inside makes this line robust, breathable and comfortable.

What’s special about the WESTALPEN SOFTSHELL high-alpine touring pants for men is the QUICK-GAITER system, which completely replaces gaiters: This hem adjustment developed by ORTOVOX can be easily and quickly adjusted in three steps and fits seamlessly over mountaineering boots. The fastening straps for under your mountaineering boots are made of abrasion-resistant Dyneema material and allow for neat, easy storage when not in use. Thanks to additional features such as ventilation zippers and abrasion-resistant schoeller® inserts for protection against sharp edges, our WESTALPEN SOFTSHELL high-alpine touring pants for men can be adapted to all situations and weather conditions. Merino mesh inserts at the adjustable waistband make the pants even more comfortable. For the sake of the environment, these high-alpine touring pants are also PFC-free and manufactured entirely in Europe, thus avoiding long transport routes.

High alpine touring
Hallo Zusammen ich habe die Hose vor kurzem in einer Hochtour im Einsatz gehabt, leider hat sich die besondere Robustheit und Abriebfestigkeit nicht als Realität herausgestellt. Nach einem Felskontakt (Pause) im Po Bereich ein kleines Loch, Faden gezogen. Dies ist mir bei anderen Hosen z.B Wander- Kletterhosen noch nie passiert. Bitte die Materialauswahl überprüfen. Die Hose hat sich bis auf diese bewährt, hab sie eingeschickt, bin gespannt was rauskommt, leider habe ich in den nächsten Wochen keine Hochtourenhose, schade. Bis denn, macht's guet Markus Hello everyone, I recently used the pants on a high-altitude tour, unfortunately the special robustness and abrasion resistance did not turn out to be reality. After a rock contact (break) in the buttocks area, a small hole, thread pulled. This has never happened to me with other trousers, for example hiking or climbing trousers. Please check the material selection. Except for these, the pants have proven themselves, I sent them in, I'm excited to see what comes out, unfortunately I won't have any high-altitude pants for the next few weeks, too bad. Until then, take care Markus
