If you like comfortable ski-touring pants from companies focused on sustainability, Ortovox’s Tofana may be the champion. The cut is athletic and it offers just enough room for layering to the conditions while still staying streamlined to avoid crampons and ski-edges. But what really separates the Tofana is the 100% Tasmanian Wool lining. Wool is a sweat-wicking, stink-busting, and thermoregulating fiber that is rarely seen in outerwear. Kudos to Ortovox for thinking outside the box to keep you comfortable all day. The DWR-treated polyamide outer-shell is water-resistant and windproof, creating a regulated internal climate regardless of what Mother Nature has in store. If your crampons or ski edges turn on you, the Cordura insert in the lower leg will stand up to the offense. The knees have been stitched appropriately for articulation which improves the already-good flexibility of the pant. Thanks to the sustainable wool lining, the Tofana is a high-performance pant that leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy inside and out.
