Very robust, technical softshell pants with integrated gaiters for high alpine tours.


  • Water and wind-resistant and highly breathable
  • Particularly robust
  • Fine merino wool on the inside 

Mighty glacial crevasses, combined rock and ice terrain and impressive summits: On alpine tours, we need clothing that is adaptable and that we can 100% rely upon. This is exactly where our WESTALPEN SOFTSHELL line comes into play: A combination of scuff-resistant MERINO NATURETEC RIPS inserts, NATURETEC LIGHT material and fine merino wool on the inside makes this line robust, breathable and comfortable.

What’s special about the WESTALPEN SOFTSHELL high-alpine touring pants for women is the QUICK-GAITER system, which completely replaces gaiters: This hem adjustment developed by ORTOVOX can be easily and quickly adjusted in three steps and fits seamlessly over mountaineering boots. The fastening straps for under your mountaineering boots are made of abrasion-resistant Dyneema material and allow for neat, easy storage when not in use. Thanks to additional features such as ventilation zippers and abrasion-resistant schoeller® inserts for protection against sharp edges, our WESTALPEN SOFTSHELL high-alpine touring pants for women can be adapted to all situations and weather conditions. Merino mesh inserts at the adjustable waistband make the pants even more comfortable. For the sake of the environment, these high-alpine touring pants are also PFC-free and manufactured entirely in Europe, thus avoiding long transport routes.

Tolle, bequeme Hose. Sehr dehnbar, für gute Beweglichkeit, trotzdem fühlt sie sich robust an. Leider noch nicht auf Tour getestet, aber ich freue mich auf die erste Tour mit ihr. Great, comfortable pants. Very stretchy for good mobility, yet it feels robust. Unfortunately not yet tested on tour, but I'm looking forward to the first tour with her.

Sehr gut durchdachte Softshell-Hose. An richtigen Stellen ist das Material robuster gewählt. Hält auch dem Kontakt mit Steigeisen stand. Diese Hose bietet beim Klettern absolute Bewegungsfreiheit und hält auch mal einem kurzen Regenschauer stand. Aber wenn es richtig eisig wird, ist trotz Merinowolle eine lange Unterhose und ein Hardshell-Layer unverzichtbar. Very well thought out soft shell pants. The material is more robust in the right places. Also withstands contact with crampons. These pants offer absolute freedom of movement when climbing and can also withstand a short rain shower. But when it gets really icy, long underwear and a hard shell layer are essential, despite the merino wool.

Sowohl bei Hochtouren aber auch anstrengenden Skitouren getestet und für sehr gut befunden! Ist definitiv ihr Geld wert; und höchst verlässlich! Selbst bei Schneesturm 🌨 Tut was sie soll, und sieht nebenbei auch mega aus 👍🏻 Tested on high tours as well as strenuous ski tours and found to be very good! Is definitely worth the money; and highly reliable! Even in a snowstorm 🌨 Does what it's supposed to and looks great at the same time 👍🏻

Our wool has its origins at the heart of a natural paradise: Tasmania. Where the air is at its purest, the food lush, and the climate moderate – that’s where fair merino wool that fulfils the highest quality standards can be found.



Our commitment to fair wool: Our own wool standard ensures that our merino wool is sourced in an animal- and environmentally-friendly manner. Our friendly relationship with our farmers enables us to have full transparency throughout the value-added chain.
