On alpine adventures our equipment must be lightweight but also warm and functional. It must function in the valley just as it does during ice cold climbs to the summit.
The FLEECE GRID line is thus the ideal companion in the mountains: Thanks to its inner channel structure, this fleece vest for men is light but can also trap air and heat through insulating air pockets. A Fleece Light insert in the chest area and double-layered breast pocket provide additional lightweight protection against the wind. During hours of intensive movement, the material composition boasts excellent stretchability and provides ventilation thanks to its inner channel structure. The temperature-regulating properties are supported by fine merino wool on the inside: Tasmanian virgin wool regulates the moisture and temperature levels, is quick drying and has odor neutralizing characteristics.
Merino wool also makes it comfortable to wear. The two breast pockets provide room for storing maps, cell phone or trail bars. The collar provides additional protection against wind and weather.
ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE (OWP)
Since 1995, merino wool has been an integral component of ORTOVOX's mountainwear. Our merino wool comes from selected farms that comply with our own wool standard: the ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE. ORTOVOX obtains its virgin wool from verified and ethical sheep farms. These farms are regularly monitored within the framework of the OWP. The wool is naturally 100% ecological and therefore super sustainable. Thanks to the small-diameter fibers in its fine woolen 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, odor 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!
