Rain pants for alpinists: Waterproof and breathable

ORTOVOX hardshell pants for men mean perfect climate control and ideal protection against the wet. With a water column of at least 20,000mm, ORTOVOX rain pants are reliably wind and waterproof.

What makes ORTOVOX hardshell pants so special? Our combination of materials.

ORTOVOX rain pants benefit from the perfect interplay of natural merino wool with high-performance membranes. 

Soft merino wool provides great comfort and excellent moisture regulation. It is perfect in mountainwear thanks to its extraordinary functions, such as the fantastic way it absorbs moisture and wicks it to the outside, meaning your skin never feels wet. 

And a high-performance membrane such as Toray Dermizax®EV reliably protects against the wind and wet, and offers highly functional climate management.
