Break away from the crowds and head into the backcountry for some fresh, untouched turns in the Ortovox Andermatt Pant. Its waterproof and windproof membrane keeps you protected from the elements while its highly breathable nature helps prevent you from getting cold and wet on strenuous ascents. If on the ascents, or descents for that matter, you are really pushing it, side ventilation zippers open to dump your excess heat to keep you comfortable so you can push on to the next summit. Merino inserts in the knees and seat add light padding and warmth for more comfortable rest periods while integrated gaiters seal out the fresh snow when you're bootpacking. In addition to the two hip pockets, the Andermatt has a zippered thigh pocket that has a lightweight carabiner to accommodate an avalanche transceiver so you can be prepared when you head into the backcountry.
