Millet categorizes the Touring Shield Pant as an "action shell" for a reason. Built with Polartec® Powershield Light and Stretch three layer fabric, the pants are cut ergonomically and have articulated knees to move with your body. And since they are specifically designed for ski mountaineering, the Touring Shield Pant focuses on breathability so you don't become waterlogged on long approaches. At the same time, a DWR coating on the tough nylon Powershield exterior keeps you protected should the snow start blowing. An excellent pant for everyday touring.
- Horizontal slot on the back of the pant leg perfectly fits an Alien lock lever to ease transitions.
- Polartec® Powershield Light and Stretch fabric is breathable yet shields you from the elements.
- Dyntex® reinforced scuff cuffs add protection from skis, crampons, and Whippets.
- Very thin fleece lining adds a modicum of insulation so this pant can handle colder days.
- Comfortable elastic waistband has an inner tightening lace so you can tie the perfect fit.
- Unique diagonally zipped rear pocket on skier's right can secure a wallet or phone.
- Reinforced articulated knees are designed to take some abuse while ascending couloirs or praying.
- Drawstring cuffs have side zips so you can get them over your boot and then cinch to keep the snow out when booting.
- Composit™ construction joins the panels together with a focus on fluid motion.
- Like most Millet clothing, the pants come with a cool branded hanger.
- Option to match with the Touring Shield Jacket.

Questions & Reviews
Getting made fun of for training in your skin suit all winter? These pants have that nice skin suit fit, with cuffs that seal around your skimo boot and keep snow out nicely, but you don't look dorky like we all know skin suits look outside of racing. Euro style? Yes, very much so. But if you're even considering these pants you've already embraced that scene to max. Good enough looking for a post-skiing microbrew visit? Hell, if these came in denim you'd look like a hipster schussing down a street in Williamsburg, but of course you're actually ascending a mountain at extremely high speeds due to the unencumbered fit of these pants.
