ROBUSTNESS COUPLED WITH CLIMATIC COMFORT!
While developing MERINO SHIELD SHELL, our new softshell line, our focus was on creating high-performance products for high-alpine tours. Features such as robustness, comfort through freedom of movement and breathability were particularly important. The high proportion of CORDURA® in the material mix ensures the BEST POSSIBLE SCUFF RESISTANCE and LONGEVITY (min. 80.000 abrasion cycles in the Martindale test) and so offers optimum protection in the field. High FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT is guaranteed thanks to highly elastic Lycra fibers – the material used in the jacket and pants can be stretched by 20 %. Because we know how important it is that water vapor can escape from the inside to the outside problem-free, we trust a no-membrane design in the MERINO SHIELD SHELL line. To ensure that no water can permeate in from the outside, the surface of the jacket and pants is DWR-treated. Merino wool on the interior also ensures great wear comfort and a pleasant microclimate.
Our PIZ BADILE softshell pants protect you in the rough, high alpine terrain. These alpine touring pants are extremely robust, have an athletic cut and provide great freedom of movement thanks to the use of elastic materials. MERINO COOL AIR MESH in the lower back area on the pants’ waistband ensures ideal moisture wicking and high wear comfort. The soft and elastic insert made of nylon and MERINO COOL has a cooling effect and absorbs moisture at the same time. The width of the waistband can be adjusted quickly and easily using a hook and loop fastener on each side. In addition, these touring pants are fitted with trip protection and a hook for fastening to shoes. The ankle cuffs can also be adjusted to the desired width using an elasticated band. Two zipped slip-in hip pockets and a thigh pocket provide plenty of space for odds and ends. The outside of the thigh pocket made of felted wool is a real visual highlight on these pants. All eyes are sure to be on you!
THE NATURAL PARADISE OF TASMANIA
100% of the merino wool from this collection comes from the Australian island of Tasmania. The wool from this natural paradise is high-quality, thin (18 microns at ORTOVOX), and tear-resistant. But just as important for us, this material is ethically and ecologically sound. We have very high expectations of the farmers. A large portion of their working time is committed to ensuring sustainable farm management and animal welfare.
