For hard ascents and unforgettable descents

Robust, breathable softshell pants with loden inserts for vigorous tours


  • innovative membrane with moisture and temperature management
  • excellent ventilation thanks to a mesh lining and ventilation zippers
  • high level of comfort thanks to a merino wool lining

The PORDOI PANTS for men are designed for demanding ascents and speedy descents – whatever the weather.

Thanks to the innovative C_CHANGE™ MEMBRANE FROM SCHOELLER®, these premium softshell pants react to sweat build-up with special moisture and temperature management: When it’s cold, the membrane closes – as soon as the body becomes too hot, the pores open to regulate the temperature.
Side zippers provide extra ventilation, while the fine merino wool lining and merino mesh inserts in the waistband ensure a pleasant feel on the skin. Protection against sharp edges on the inner leg and integrated gaiters coated with silicon on the inside make our premium softshell pants a reliable companion for a day in the snow.

So with our PORDOI PANTS for men you’ll be ready for even the most challenging tours and can enjoy your winter adventure to the full.


SWISSWOOL offers excellent thermal properties and optimum climate comfort. In addition to high functionality, SWISSWOOL is characterized by its regional origin and sustainable production and processing. SWISSWOOL also guarantees a fair price for raw wool at collection points in often very remote valleys. After the raw wool has been weighed, it is washed and then processed, always utilizing the shortest possible transportation routes. ORTOVOX then provides the unique design and functionality during the manufacture of the end product.

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 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 wool has been an integral component of ORTOVOX’s mountainwear since 1995. The focus of this has always been the protection of people, animals and nature: Our merino wool comes from selected farms that comply with our own wool standard: the ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE. These farms are regularly monitored within the framework of the OWP to ensure that the highest standards of animal welfare are maintained. The OWP is our commitment to fair wool.

The C-Change fabric is fantastic. It's the real highlight of these pants. The main fabric is a comfortable blend of weather resistance and breathability. I can't say I notice the pore changes in the laminate, but whether it's cold and stormy, or hot and sunny I still feel comfortable all the time with the same wool base layer. I haven't bothered using the size zips even hiking up hill in 40F+ degree weather. The light stretch and relaxed fit is enough to support free movement, even with knee pads on underneath. As a nice bonus, they are not saggy like an overly stretchy soft-shell, even when wetted. Great soft hand. I haven't worn them without long-johns, but the inner fabric seems soft, comfy, and layers smoothly. I really like the boot cuffs and inner gaiters. The zip open legs are plenty large enough to work with unbuckled AT boots for going up, and when zipped up they look quite normal for daily wear. On so many ski pants, the inner cuffs are too tight and difficult to use with gloves when you're transitioning on the top of a mountain. These inner cuffs strike a great balance of keeping snow out, but remaining loose enough that it's never a struggle in the field. The beacon pocket is great. It's a must-have in a modern ski pant and this version works great. The beacon remains secure and comfortable. I like the small top pockets for keys, sunscreen etc... There are two minor quirks, but they really aren't a big deal. I wish there were two belt loops in the front, but these were really easy to sew on myself. The wool fabric on the front pockets collects snow, but it's not a big deal just a strange choice for outwear. Overall, these are my favorite all around backcountry ski pants.

Merino Wool

Our wool has its origins at the heart of a natural paradise. Where the air is at its purest, the food rich, and the climate moderate – this is where the best merino wool in the world can be found.
