Contact our ski and snowboard experts today for personalized advice about the Ortovox 3L Guardian Shell Jacket 2016-17. The MERINO GUARDIAN SHELL is, and remains, the benchmark in HARDSHELL COMFORT. Whether you are climbing off-piste for a powder run or already on the descent, making an unforgettable line in the snow, with the MERINO 3L GUARDIAN SHELL JACKET, you will be ideally equipped for anything. The inside of the jacket, which is made completely of merino wool, provides unique wear comfort, whilst the hardshell exterior, with its highly functional Toray DERMIZAX EV membrane, and with a water column of at least 20,000mm, protects you from the wet and cold, and is also absolutely windproof. And when things get really strenuous, the wool on the inside ensures a perfect climate for the skin and simply transports excess moisture outwards.
