Constructed from Polartec® NeoShell®, Vanir delivers true breathability, stretch and robustness in a lightweight and fully waterproof package. The favoured bib for mountain rescue teams and international mountain guides, the Vanir salopette is also a popular choice amongst ski mountaineers. With articulated and reinforced knees, two sets of swappable zip-out gaiters sized for ski and climbing boots, stretch-woven back, harness-friendly ¾ length side zips and full-sized Kevlar™ instep protectors, the Vanir is the professional mountain climbing salopette of choice.
Vanir Hardshell Salopette
Hands warm, valuables protected
Two hip pockets offer valuables storage or hand protection. YKK® Aquaguard® coil zips are water repellant, flexible and hard wearing.
Adjustability, built in
Elasticated, adjustable braces feature electroplated metal fixings for durability. The braces are easily detached at the front for lowering and removal of the salopettes when wearing a jacket on top.
Detachable internal gaiters with elasticated gripper cuff, electroplated metal boot clasp and internal cord cinch for a tight seal. YKK® Aquaguard® ¾ length two-way leg zips sized to stop short of harness pressure points.
Vertical for the vertical
The vertical alignment of the bib chest pockets ensures sufficient volume for valuables storage. YKK® Aquaguard® coil zips are water repellant, flexible and hard wearing. The pockets feature durable mesh inners to promote breathability and temperature regulation when working hard.
The Vanir mountain salopette uses a 3-layer Polartec® NeoShell® fabric. NeoShell® has a highly aerobic air permeability which provides a durable protective shell with advanced wicking capabilities to keep moisture vapour moving away from your core. Prior to the invention of NeoShell® the elusive balance between waterproof and windproof protection and true breathability had yet to exist in a hard shell fabric. Jottnar uses only Polartec® NeoShell® in our waterproof, breathable fabrics.
Ski or climb
Two swappable sets of zip out/zip in gaitors are provided. Each set is sized for the differing ankle volumes of ski boots and climbing boots respectively. The provided stuff sack keeps them secure when not in use.

Read the reviews
Our overall opinion for these pants was unanimous, and put simply we feel these are the best pants we have ever worn in the hills.
Using NeoShell instead of any other membrane is the key; the incredible breathability is not only noticeable, it's a pleasure to try and push its limits.
The attention to detail is amazing, the stitch count is high. The laser cutting is precise and all the fittings are well thought out and high quality.
