OUR MOST ATHLETIC SKI TOURING PRODUCTS WITH ZONE-SPECIFIC MERINO PERFORMANCE!
Our most athletic material! Our COL BECHHEI PANTS for men were developed for demanding ski tours. For the main material, we’ve used the tried-and-tested MERINO NATURETEC LIGHT with Tasmanian merino wool on the inside and protective polyamide on the outside. This Light version has the same structure as our classic Naturetec material but is much lighter and more breathable: It weighs in at just 175 g/m².
The symbiosis of merino wool and polyamide allows us to achieve outstanding breathability without a membrane, while the material’s tight weave is still extremely wind and water-resistant. On the inside, merino fibers provide perfect moisture and temperature regulation. The natural fibers wick up moisture, transporting them to the fiber cores and then outwards so that the surface stays dry and comfortable on the skin.
The ski touring pants for men have an athletic cut, are ergonomically shaped and provide the necessary freedom of movement thanks to the use of elastic material. We also use elastic MERINO ATHLETIC elastic inserts in the crotch and knee areas, so it can keep up with even the most physically demanding activities! Other features such as the adjustable waistband (elastic cord with stopper) and the elastic ankle cuffs guarantee a perfect fit. The sharp-edge protection with aramid provides sufficient protection. A map and other small items can be stowed away in the two hip pockets or in the thigh pocket.
Since 1995, merino wool has been an integral component of ORTOVOX’s mountainwear. Our merino wool comes from happy sheep reared on monitored, ethical sheep farms. The wool is naturally 100% ecological and therefore super sustainable. Thanks to the small-diameter fibers in its fine woolen threads, merino wool feels extremely soft and comfortable on the skin. In addition to comfort, merino wool also provides an ideal personal body climate by regulating both moisture and temperature. It is also easy to care for and, thanks to its antibacterial effect, odor neutralizing.
Merino Naturetec Light Material
The merino wool is directly woven together with the material from schoeller® to create the ORTOVOX NATURETEC LIGHT fabric. This combination of merino wool and durable polyamide is extremely robust and elastic – making it ideal for high-action sports. The merino wool on the skin ensures good wear comfort and an ideal personal microclimate, while the polyamide provides protection against wind and light precipitation.
