Millet Pierra Menta Alpha Pant


Makers of insulated ski touring overpants seem to agree that Polartec® Alpha insulation is the key ingredient. Millet is no exception, as they chose the surprisingly breathable fill for the new PM Alpha Pant. The annual Pierra Menta in France, home of Millet, is just the type of race that might require some backup insulation. Further, the company’s headquarters in the Alps has just the type of big lines nearby that might require it as well. Zip on the pant over a lighter layer or skin suit and be thankful for the warmth. Perfect for warmups, long races, and big adventures. The Millet Pierra Menta pant is designed to be used, with a seamless crotch panel, drop seat system, and integrated scuff guards.

  • Flex Comfort™ build has a sporty cut for performance.
  • Full-length side zips let you put on the pant with skis on.
  • Adjustable waist and hem adapts to various under layers.
  • Pertex® Microlight rip stop and scuff guards add durability.
  • Zipped security pocket and drop seat ability are thoughtful.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Zeeko
Ok, are there any larges hanging around then? Or something similar?
Your friend Zeeko
Answer from TSB
Hi Zeeko, unfortunately we don't have any more of the size Large in stock. I would look at the Dynafit Mezzalama Alpha Pant or Crazy Idea Half Blade pant for other lightweight insulating options.

Question from Zeeko
I’m interested in these pants for a variety of uses- I'm normally a 33 waist in just about everything- in between large and medium- I’ve had some Millet stuff before and found that it runs pretty small- do you think the XL would work? Over a tight or thin layer obviously?
Answer from Jeff
Zeeko, these are over pants, so their cut will be a bit big already. Millet does use straight Euro fit so they do run pretty small compared to US sizing. I would guess they will be a bit too big, but not so much that the velcro tabs will close in enough to hold up.

Question from Ben
Are you going to stock these pants in size small?
Answer from jbo
Hi Ben, looks like we are already out of smalls. I will check with Millet on further availability and send you an e-mail. Also we will have/will have the Dynafit Mezzalama XS and Crazy Idea Half Blade S available, which are similar in size.
