A warm neck in the biting cold! The 145 Ortovox Ultra Tube protects your neck and lower face in freezing temperatures. When it gets hot, you can quickly convert it into a headband or head protection. Ortovox’s most exclusive yarn is used for the 145 Ultra Tube: Nuyarn®. In an elaborate manufacturing process, the finest wool fibres are spun around a nylon core. The resulting yarn allows us to create fabrics that are lighter but at the same time more voluminous.
What’s more, the 145 Ultra Tube is soft on the skin and dries significantly faster than products made purely of wool. Thanks to the fine merino wool fibres, this neckwarmer is also moisture and temperature regulating, odour neutral and easy to care for.
Tasmanian merino wool
Merino wool is particularly fine and a sustainable natural product. Ortovox´s merino wool comes from happy sheep reared on monitored, ethical sheep farms in Tasmania. Thanks to the small-diameter fibres in its particularly fine woollen threads, their merino wool is extremely soft and comfortable to wear on the skin. In addition to comfort, merino wool provides an ideal personal body climate by naturally regulating both moisture and temperature. It’s also odour neutralizing and easy to care for.
Fine wool fibres are spun around a polyamide core in a special manufacturing process. This produces a yarn that can be used to make light and voluminous fabrics. Increased warmth, comfort and stability are just a few of the benefits.
Ortovox came to life with the invention of the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. With their passion for keeping skiers and snowboarders safe, Ortovox has grown into one of the biggest producers of avalanche safety gear on the market. In 1995 they added merino underwear to their selection, and we have been hooked ever since!
