Our 3L GUARDIAN SHELL PANTS will impress you with their unique interplay of the high-performance Toray Dermizax®EV membrane with a lining made from pure merino wool.
Thanks to this membrane, these freeriding pants for women protect against snow and moisture: With a water column of at least 20,000 mm, these hardshell pants are waterproof and also completely windproof. The 100% merino wool backing on the inside ensures excellent temperature management: The wool in the MERINO GUARDIAN SHELLPANTS allows moisture to pass through rapidly, which prevents the build-up of an inner layer of moisture and makes the 3L hardshell pants feel dry on the inside. In this way, the MERINO GUARDIAN SHELL can absorb and then slowly release large quantities of moisture on sweat-inducing ascents. This buffer action supports the Dermizax® EV membrane and enables ideal management of temperature and moisture. And if it gets cooler on the descent, the merino backing provides comfortable warmth, whilst the merinoprene back protection in the extra-high-cut back offers additional protection from snow and cold.
Further features such as the integrated gaiters and protection against sharp edges with Cordura® ensure additional protection when freeriding. The ventilation zippers on the sides provide additional cooling when things get hot. Everything you need while freeriding can easily fit into the attached hip and thigh pockets. And the new processing technology used in our MERINO GUARDIAN SHELL PANTS enables much flatter and consequently longer-lasting seams, so that the freeriding pants for women are more durable – and you can experience endless powder days with these 3L hardshell pants.
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.
The Dermizax® EV functions in the same way as the Dermizax® NX membrane. It is completely waterproof (min. 20,000mm) and 100% windproof. It is breathable up to 20,000 g/m²/24h and therefore perfectly suited for freeriding.

The PowSlayer Pants are lightweight, packable, optimized for backcountry touring and feature a minimalist design. The GORE-TEX® Pro fabric package includes the first ever 100% recycled nylon face fabric to deliver the highest level of durable waterproof/breathable and windproof protection available
The Untracked Pants have a soft, supple 3-layer 100% nylon GORE-TEX® fabric for unsurpassed windproof and waterproof/breathable performance, a fully-dialed yet refined silhouette and a brushed tricot backer for extra warmth
Looking down the stormy fall line of a rock-studded Kootenay rib, you need your focus to remain on making each turn—not on the performance of your outerwear. Unwavering in the face of harsh conditions, the Untracked Pants have a refined fit and a supple feel to move with you without bunching or slowing you down. The premium fabric package combines a supple yet resilient 3-layer nylon GORE-TEX® fabric for waterproof/breathable and windproof protection with a soft, brushed interior to increase warmth and manage moisture while minimizing bulk. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish prevents saturation. The highly articulated fit and flexed pattern at the knees allow exceptional mobility for both hiking and aggressive charging. Mesh-lined thigh vents with Vislon® zippers circulate air to reduce heat buildup; gaiters with gripper elastic, a snow-shedding nylon liner between the gaiter and interior cuff, and a DWR finish create a tenacious seal for serious postholing. Other features include watertight, coated slim zips to reduce bulk and weight; burly scuff guards; slick taffeta at the waist; adjustable tabs to fine-tune the fit; an embedded RECCO® avalanche rescue reflector; and five zippered pockets—two handwarmers, two thigh pockets and one rear pocket. With an articulated, feminine silhouette.
A feminine-flair, high-end fusion of tech and style, the fully-featured Diamond Pants use the high insulation performance of strategically placed 60g Primaloft® Silver insulation to keep you warm and comfortable while maintaining the slim contoured fit.
Our most athletic material! Our PIZA DULEDA PANTS for women 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 women 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.
