Midweight baselayer bottoms with optimized venting zones for active performance, the Men’s Winter Zone Leggings are our most technical cold-weather leggings. Fully functional for warmth, ventilation, and support while alpine climbing, backcountry skiing, or other day-long adventures in the wild, the body features 260gm merino wool fabric with a touch of LYCRA® for stretch. In the gusset we used lightweight, 180gm eyelet merino mesh that actively controls temperature during high-output pursuits, and in the higher-wear areas around the knees we added 230gm merino and polyester waffle jersey for added abrasion resistance. Flatlock seams throughout eliminate chafing during fast-paced days.

The merino is an ancient breed of alpine sheep. Over millions of years they evolved a superfine, highly breathable fleece to protect them from freezing winters and scorching summers. It will do the same for you.
Merino naturally keeps you warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather.
Merino absorbs and releases vapour to prevent overheating and clamminess.
Merino gives you extra protection against the sun's harmful rays, naturally.
Naturally anti-bacterial, it can be worn for days without washing.
