On alpine ventures, our gear needs to be light, but warm and functional at the same time. It has to work in the valley as well as in the icy summit climb. The Merino Fleece Grind line is therefore the ideal companion in the mountains. Thanks to the channel structure on the inside, the fleece hooded jacket for men is lightweight but can store air and warmth at the same time thanks to the air pockets. The Fleece Light insert in the chest area as well as the double-layer chest pocket gives a light, additional wind protection. In more movement-intensive hours, the material composition not only has excellent stretch properties, but also allows ventilation at the same time thanks to the channel structure on the inside. The temperature regulating properties are supported by the fine merino wool on the inside: The Tasmanian virgin wool regulates the moisture and temperature balance, is fast drying and has odour-neutralising properties. The merino wool also ensures a comfortable feel. The two chest pockets offer storage space for maps, mobile phone or snack. The hood offers additional protection from wind and weather.
Ortovox Wool Promise (OWP)
Merino wool has been an integral part of Ortovox mountain wear since 1995. The focus is always on the protection of people, animals and nature: the merino wool comes from selected farms that produce according to the brand's own wool standard OWP. Under the OWP, sheep farms are subject to regular audits to ensure that the highest standards of animal welfare are maintained. The OWP is Ortovox's commitment to fair wool.
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!
