Thanks to the fine merino fibres, the Ortovox Fleece Light Gloves are comfortably soft on the skin and warm even when wet. The elastic material provides great freedom of movement and, thanks to the goatskin leather with punch hole reinforcement on the palms, guarantees a good grip and sufficient durability for intensive use on ski tours. The practical pull-on aid is particularly convenient in freezing temperatures when everything has to move quickly. Thanks to the smart finger, a fine goatskin leather insert on the index finger, operating the display on a smartphone or GPS is easy even in gloves.
Tasmanian merino wool
Since 1995, merino wool has been an integral component of ORTOVOX’s mountain wear. Our merino wool comes from happy sheep reared on monitored, ethical sheep farms. The wool is naturally 100% ecological and therefore super sustainable. Thanks to the small-diameter fibres in its fine woollen threads, merino wool feels extremely soft and comfortable on the skin. In addition to comfort, merino wool also provides an ideal personal body climate by regulating both moisture and temperature. It is also easy to care for and, thanks to its antibacterial effect, odour neutralizing.
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!
