If you’re looking to charge hard in rugged, built-for-the-backcountry technical gear then you need to get into the Ortovox Merino 3L Guardian Shell Jacket and Pants this winter.

We’ve teamed up with the super cool Ortovox crew to offer you guys the chance to head out onto the mountain in this sturdy and smart combo, optimised for secret stash hunting and maximum freeride fun.

Both the Guardian Shell Jacket (worth £600) and Pants (worth £525) are constructed using a soft, warm, breathable merino wool interior combined with a high-performance stretchy, 20k waterproof and windproof Toray DermizaxEV outer to keep you guarded from the elements and ready to ride.

Loose fitting, 20k waterproof, windproof, warm, and 20k breathable, this super technical Guardian combo feels great next to your skin and the four-way stretch material makes bootpacking a breeze. With two-way adjustable, helmet-compatible storm hood, ergonomic arm and leg vent zippers, backpack-compatible pockets, extra high cut back on the pants, Cordura kick pads, and large thigh pockets, this kit is built to hike and ride – over and over again.

The outfit comes in a choice of four colours and is available in a women’s-specific design, too.
