Ortovox combines the finest Merino quality with the Lenzing Modal ® ultra-soft fiber.
Modally is purely natural like merino wool. The fiber is made from beech wood cellulose and is considered to be as soft as silk. Ortovox uses Modal on the inside where it is in contact with the skin and merino on the outside. The fibers blend perfectly well and support each other in the function. The fiber combination corresponds to a material thickness of approx 190 g/m².
Softness for the whole leg area. The interaction of the two natural fibers creates a unique merino feel. The soft touch nuzzles the skin and the merino fiber provides cozy warmth. An elastic band perfectly fits the hip area.
Ortovox came to life when Gerald Kampel and Jürgen Wegner developed the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. They have since 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!
