The massive, bizarre towers of the Pala group protrude from the stony alpine plateau. Climbing here in the southernmost mountain range of the Dolomites takes strong nerves – and strong material. Our MERINO SHIELD TEC line was designed especially for such long, alpine routes. We use extremely scuff-resistant material for our PALA climbing SHORTS for men. In the Martindale test for scuff resistance, the primary material was able to withstand over 50,000 abrasion cycles. In high-stress areas, we’ve used inserts that are even more robust (˃100,000 abrasion cycles in the Martindale test) to offer maximum protection from rugged rock faces. In addition, the MERINO SHIELD TEC line is made of polyamide and elastane on the outside and fine merino wool on the inside. This mix guarantees high breathability and will mirror all your movements on the rock face thanks to 4-WAY STRETCH material. The pants also impress with a waistband that is quick and easy to adjust.
You’ll never want to take off your short PALA climbing pants for men! These climbing shorts have an ergonomic cut, are super elastic, robust and, at just 255 grams (women’s size M), are also extremely light. The knee area is reinforced for use on rocks. The width-adjustable waistband ensures a perfect fit, and MERINO COOL AIR MESH on the waistband ensures good moisture wicking and high wear comfort. These climbing pants have a total of three pockets: two slip-in pockets and a map pocket on the right thigh. And of course, there is also an attachment for your chalk bag.
The PALA SHORTS have an athletic cut and are ideal for long alpine routes: The close fit with anatomically shaped, reinforced knee area prevents the shorts from unintentionally becoming caught on small ledges when climbing and ensures a comfortable fit with ample freedom of movement. The leg length comes to just below the knee – so the PALA SHORTS can protect the skin from contact with the rocks and avoid scrapes.
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.
