Weatherproof, lightweight freeride pants with merino inserts for the backcountry


  • Lightweight and supple
  • Loose cut for great freedom of movement
  • Merino wool in areas sensitive to the cold

Lightweight and supple for full freedom of movement when freeriding: The 3L DEEP SHELL PANTS for men offer full protection and high comfort combined with low weight.

The wind- and waterproof DERMIZAX®EV high-performance membrane from Toray is lined with merino wool in areas of the body that are particularly sensitive to the cold, guaranteeing optimum heat retention and a comfortable fit. These lightweight freeriding pants have anatomically shaped knees and a comfortable cut to guarantee freedom of movement in any terrain. Ventilation zippers on the sides provide additional ventilation when the going gets tough.

The spacious, extended thigh pockets ensure everything can be neatly stowed away and yet accessed quickly. The avalanche transceiver carabiner integrated into the right pocket provides a permanent place for your avalanche transceiver.

Thanks to their robust membrane and flat seams, the 3L DEEP SHELL PANTS for men are particularly durable and long-wearing. The integrated Dyneema-Cordura gaiters and sharp-edge protectors provide additional protection when freeriding. The pants are also PFC-free and climate neutral in the interest of sustainability. Green light for mindful freeriders!

Kantenschutz zu schwach. 1 mal getragen, 2 cm langer Schlitz wie durch Butter beim Kantenschutz. Wasser perlt nicht ab, gemäss Ortovox habe ich die Hosen gewaschen und nicht richtig impregniert. Habe die Hose neu und noch nie gewaschen. Schade muss man eine Hose in dieser Preisklasse neugekauft noch impregnieren. Ansonsten ist die Hose gut. Edge protection too weak. Worn once, 2 cm long slit like through butter in the edge protection. Water doesn't roll off, according to Ortovox I washed the trousers and didn't waterproof them properly. The pants are new and have never been washed. It's a shame you have to impregnate new pants in this price range. Otherwise the pants are good.

These are beautiful pants and look like they are very durable but the sizes are off. I'm 6'1 and 170 with an athletic build and based on their size chart I should get a medium which fit great in the legs etc but I would have to have a 28" waist to get them to close so sadly I had to return them. I'm sure they are great pants but the sizing is weird. The next size up was way too baggy in the legs although it did fit around the waist. Ultimately I went with their new Orter 3l pants which are awesome. Like I said I'm sure these are great but just couldn't get a size that worked for me..
