Quick-drying, light but tough and very comfortable. A proprietary 3XDRY® treatment from Swiss fabric technologists, Schoeller® repels light moisture and dirt from the outside whilst rapidly transporting perspiration from the inside.  

Detachable braces, leg ventilation zips and double-lined seat and knees for abrasion resistance as well as reinforced kick patches to help protect against touring-ski edges and crampons.

WORK HARD, KEEP COOL

Zipped leg vents enhance cooling when working hard. An inner mesh discourages snow ingress, whilst an outer wind baffle provides protection when the vents are zipped closed and not in use.

ANY BOOT, ANY VOLUME

Adjustable ankle opening accommodates boots of varying volume. The zipped cuff will fit climbing, ski, ski mountaineering and Telemark boots. Hardwearing, reinforced in-step protectors protect against crampons and ski edges.

INTERNAL SOFT BAND AND BRACES

Soft internal loops for brace attachments. A felt inner waist lining enhances comfort whilst double press studs and integrated belt provide security.

REPEL DIRT, WATER AND UV

Schoeller® 3XDRY® treatment for dirt and water repellence. The 3XDRY®finishing technology unites two treatments, hydrophobic and hydrophilic. From the fabric outside up to the middle it is water repellent; from the fabric inside to the middle it is water absorbent. This combination generates a comfortable cooling-effect, keeping you dry longer.

Ur 2nd Skin

Fabric behaves like a 2nd skin - bought a pair several seasons back and finally got to wear them this week in a wee shimmy from Zinal to Bella-Tolla, Tete De Milon and Bishorn. The fabric is highly breathable with soft handle and great stretch which means that they are delight to wear even at maximum output and surprisingly warm in a light breeze at 4,100m. The trade off for these benefits is that the fabric is easy to hole: for example; when the fabric at the cuff of the Scrapa ski boot came into contact with a granite rock whilst stepping up through heather and snow it left a clearly visible impression of the impact on the surface of the fabric which is a shame. Also, the boot cuff Velcro picks away at the inside of the pant cuff when in touring mode which is slightly frustrating when going into a transition and hopefully will not result in any long term degradation to the fabric. Apart from that the pants are a joy to wear and perform as advertised and I thoroughly enjoyed wearing them. Well done Jottnar.

Mobility perfect

Been using these as the main goto when doing climbing, skiieng, mountaneering or anything in between. Very solid pants with extreme mobility.

Great Pants

I bought these middle of last year. These pants are great for trekking and spring ski touring. The fit and inseam are perfect. They are strong enough on the outside but have great stretch and wick moisture super well. I have used for high output cardio tasks and have really like them. The quality is excellent as well. I would recommend these pants for sure. I am 5'10" and about 175 lbs. The medium fit is perfect for me.

Beautiful but too fragile!

These trousers are an absolute work of art. Very high quality components and very nicely put together. They are comfortable and provide good insulation and water resistance. However the only downside for me is how fragile the material is... I wore these trousers the day after I got them on a hike in the lakes and came back with a hole in the knee and a tear inside the leg, I don't even know how it happened. In the mountains I need durable trousers and I wouldn't buy these again unfortunately however still a nice product for much gentler use perhaps walking the dog

Worked with ski touring boots!

These mountain trousers are superb. I searched for along time for a schoeller type pant that could be used for everything including ski touring. Over the last two months I have used them for winter scrambling in wet Scottish snow, two ski touring trips in the alps and several sweaty uphill workouts with weight. They have been excellent. They look great as well, which makes a difference. I particularly appreciated how well they worked with ski touring boots (Salomon Mtn). The material is comfortable and very flexible, and works great with an extra merino layer, or warmer, as required. I have found myself using them at home as well. I have had problems before with the modern belts from other brands, which often loosen under the pressure of a harness or hip belt but the Valis worked fine. The windproofing was less than I have experienced with some other trousers, but this was only in strong winds and easily manageable. My only suggestion would be for the hip vents to be deeper (as on the old Rab Calibre trousers) so that they can be used to stuff gloves, hat etc on the move. Many thanks to Tommy for your help in getting the right size. Highly recommended.
