The Col Becchei pant ticks every check box for what makes a fast and light ski mountaineering pant. It’s comfortable; the Merino wool next to skin is soft, plush, and wicks moisture away from the body quickly. Elastic stretch throughout allows unimpeded movement. It’s weather-tough; the Merino Naturetec Light material quickly sheds precipitation in stormy conditions and windproof zones block out cold blasts around vital areas. It’s durable; after crazy amounts of use by Nate, the pants still look and perform like new.

With attributes like these, the Ortovox Col Bechhei is ideal for long days of moving fast and eating up terrain. It is also an ideal race/training pant for the “citizen class” skimo racer who may not want to make the jump into a full spandex suit but is looking for top-functioning apparel. Or, if you love yours as much as some of us do, you may want to wear them as highly technical pajamas!

  • One pocket on the thigh and two on the hips keep snacks, beacon, or phone handy.
  • Zipper-plus-snaps on the cuffs allow perfect adjustment to fit over boots.
  • Aramid sharp edge protection around hem prevents ski edge cuts and slices.
  • Elastic waist with adjustable drawcord keeps your drawers from drooping.
  • Matches the Col Bechhei jacket.

Update 2019/20: Ortovox didn't change anything on these pants, but they did add a new colorway, "Blue Sea".

The fabric is light and thin, not a cold weather touring pant.These lack cutouts for dyanfit, or rear lever boots. Though they work fine with my aliens. Keep in mind that that these are wool, so wool moths will put holes in them. They also tend to pill in high wear areas, wearing a harness all day will get to them.

I'm 5'9" 145lbs and a size small fits pretty well. Not a skin tight race fit, but a looser touring fit.

Dropped one star because I don't think these are worth the $300 price tag, many other good options out there for cheaper.
