Ortovox Pala Shorts - Men's


PROTECTION ON ALPINE ROUTES

EXTREMELY DURABLE, ATHLETIC STRETCH SHORTS FOR ALPINE CLIMBING

HIGHLIGHTS

  • High scuff-resistance
  • Athletic cut for great freedom of movement
  • Water-resistant on the outside, comfortable thanks to merino wool on the inside

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 long, alpine routes like these!

The extremely scuff-resistant outer material used in the PALA SHORTS for men achieves more than 50,000 abrasion cycles in the Martindale test, which is used to measure scuff resistance. An athletic cut, 4-WAY stretch material and an anatomically shaped knee area give you full freedom of movement. The no-membrane construction of the PALA SHORTS makes them particularly breathable, aided by fine merino wool inside and MERINO MESH inserts at the waistband for added comfort. The harness- and backpack-optimized pockets and TOPO pocket keep your items close at hand. The adjustment options at the ankles and waistband guarantee a perfect fit for every movement. For the sake of the environment, the entire MERINO SHIELD TEC line is also completely PFC-free and climate-neutral through carbon offsetting.

With its fresh look, the PALA SHORTS for men is just right for big climbing routes on high rock faces.
