The black sheep with a new look: With a new design and new features, the 2L Swisswool Andermatt Jacket for men is making its own way through the deep snow!
It still boasts a combination of high-performance Toray Dermizax®NX membrane as outer material and the rare wool of black sheep in varying weights. As such, this 2L hardshell jacket is the only Ortovox freeride hardshell construction with insulation: the warm Swisswool lining is complemented perfectly by the protective Toray Dermizax®NX membrane. This freeride jacket provides optimum insulation in freezing temperatures while also keeping moisture, snow (min. 20,000mm) and wind at bay. Unlike synthetic fibres, it warms when you’re very active but also when you’re resting. The 2-way stretch material provides sufficient freedom of movement and moves with you on short ascents and long descents!
In order to improve both individuality and performance, design and features in the Swisswool Andermatt Jacket for men have been optimized: The chest pocket and the inside and front pockets have all been revamped, and fine Merino wool has been added around the chin area. Tried-and-tested features such as the ski pass pocket and underarm ventilation zippers have been retained, lending the jacket the coveted freeride style. Additional protection against snow and wind is provided by the 2-way adjustable hood, removable snow guard and adjustable hook and loop fasteners, which guarantee a perfect fit.
The use of black wool makes the 2L SWISSWOOL BLACK so special: It is seldom used in the industry because white wool is both easier to colour and does not show through the outer material when used as a lining. In contrast, black wool is often a “waste product”. This is why the SWISSWOOL BLACK line, made from the rare wool of black sheep, stands for idealism and individuality.
High-performance Dermizax® NX membrane provides protection against all weather conditions while remaining extremely breathable up to 32,000 g/m²/24h. Dermizax® NX boasts higher values than Dermizax® DT and Dermizax® EV.

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!
