When the big storm finally hits and snow is blasting in your face, you need to keep your layers protected the way a ram guards a flock of sheep. Much like your ram-like instincts, the Ortovox Men's Guardian Shell 3L Pant shields you from the snow when you tour the backcountry or hit the resort, thanks to the highly breathable and waterproof Toray Dermizax EV membrane. And much like the sheep's sheep-like instincts, it's lined with comfortable and breathable merino wool. In addition to being super-comfortable and moisture-wicking, merino wool also offers thermal regulation that cools you down when you're warm and warms you up when you're cold, making this pant perfect for a range of conditions and levels of output. This shell pant also features an innovative waist adjustment, using a system that Ortovox calls Merinoprene. The high cut back uses neoprene on the outside and merino wool on the inside to fight the cold, and a snug and secure hook-and-loop adjustment system that gives you added lumbar support for long days on the slopes. When you start to heat up there aere are zippered vents at each side for circulated airflow, and when you find the perfect pow stash you've got ankle gaiters keeping the snow out. For targeted durability you've got reinforced cuffs that protect footwear from ski edges and crampons.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
