If you’re planning on using your over shorts for more than just avant/après ski, consider getting the most breathable option. The entire Mezzalama line-- including the jackets, pants, and over shorts-- uses targeted Polartech Alpha insulation to transport perspiration away from your skin in order to keep you dry and warm without overheating or freezing. With 98g of premium lightweight insulation, stretch-woven panels to ensure mobility, and a durable water repellent coating, these pants have everything you need for full-time backcountry use. Full-length side zips make these shorts a perfect layering piece, and the adjustable waist offers a secure fit. The Mezzalama Alpha Overshorts are a functional and reliable layer that any light-and-fast backcountry skier will be glad to have in their closet.
- Full side-zip lets you put on the shorts and take them off without removing your skis.
- Stretch-woven nylon shell is wind-resistant, water-repellent, and abrasion-resistant.
- 98g of Polartec® Alpha® insulation keeps you warm yet breathes amazingly well.
- Snow gaiter keeps the snow out while a DWR finish makes precipitation bead up.

Questions & Reviews
Sizing is spot-on, albeit with the usual confusing Euro conversion: I have a size U.S. Small, which also carries a Euro Medium size label, and they fit perfectly over lycra race wear from Dynafit (and other brands) with the same size and labeling convention.
just to be sure your Small is an American Spall and your Large an American Large? the mezzalama with show gaiter was available on the first short model the mezzalama 2 does not have a show gaiter (that's what I have as a model) I'm looking for myself. thanks again
