The Mezzalama Pant from Dynafit is a zip-on insulation layer designed for its namesake high-altitude race. Known as the white marathon, the Mezzalama is a long, arduous, often-cold affair. In such races and/or places, it’s nice to have a pant you can whip on without taking off your skis. The pants are made with rip-stop nylon that is strategically (and lightly) filled with Polartec Alpha insulation. This gives you breathable weather protection and warmth when you’re running out of gas.
- Full side-zips let you put the pants on or take them off without removing skis.
- 60g of Polartec Alpha provides valuable insulation in remote places.
- Wind-resistant rip-stop nylon is treated with DWR for water repellency.
- Pre-shaped knees and a ventilation gusset signal activewear (vs checklist-wear).
- The pants are a Bluesign® approved garment, meaning they are planet-friendly.
- Don’t forget the jacket.
Update 2019/20: These have been replaced by the Mezzalama Alpha 2.

Questions & Reviews
Will most often use the pant over a pair of PDG or Pierra Menta pants or race suit. Have any thoughts about how either pant would fit and function to help me choose?
