Splitboard Test Results  Testinfo

The Aletsch pants fit perfectly with the Aletsch jacket, it also got me excited. Comfort, the little weight, wind and weather resistance is impressive.



The Aletsch pants are simple and functional, and has everything you need as motivated splitboarders or mountaineer.
The two side pockets and the back pocket are of such a size that everything important fits in.
  • The zipper over the full length of the legs ensures pleasant cooling and is also completely sealed in for icy winds.
The snow guard in the legs fit over snowboard boots and with the clip you can fix them additionally to  your shoe laces so that it is properly seated even in the deepest powder and the snow is kept outside.
With the outer "climbing closure" you can tighten the pants even more to your boots and prevent, known at wide snowboard pants, the problem of "crampons bites" at your pants.
  • If the pants are a bit too big, or you like it rather "baggy" the detachable suspenders are great to reach a comfortable fit.


Conclusion: The Aletsch pants is exactly match of the Aletsch jacket and provides everything you need for challenging touring and montaineering. No frills, but functional and total comfort. Again, the price / performance ratio is excellent.
