Made for demanding tours, the premium softshell PORDOI JACKET for men offers protection and a high degree of comfort thanks to its loden inserts and merino wool.
For demanding ascents and speedy descents: The PORDOI JACKET for men can handle ski tours in any kind of weather.
Thanks to the C_CHANGE(TM) SCHOELLER® MEMBRANE, the premium softshell jacket also reacts to sweat build-up with special moisture and temperature management: When it's cold, the membrane closes - as soon as the body becomes too hot, the pores open to regulate the temperature. The new mesh lining on the breast pockets provides additional ventilation, while the fine merino wool inner lining continues to ensure great comfort. The loden inserts with underlying membrane have been repositioned and now protect even the chin area against wind and weather.
So with our PORDOI JACKET men you'll be ready for anything and can enjoy your winter adventure to the full, whatever the weather.
The virgin wool we use for the loden is produced locally in Switzerland. SWISSWOOL has set up collection stations specifically for this purpose in many Swiss Alpine valleys, some of which are very remote, guaranteeing a fair price for raw wool. This has led to a revival in sheep farming and wool production, which are often quite unprofitable. After the raw wool has been weighed, it is washed and then processed. ORTOVOX then provides the unique design and functionality during the manufacture of the end product.
Since 1995, merino wool has been an integral component of ORTOVOX's mountainwear. Our merino wool comes from happy sheep reared on monitored, ethical sheep farms. The wool is naturally 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 WOOL PROMISE (OWP)
Merino wool has been an integral component of ORTOVOX's mountainwear since 1995. The focus of this has always been the protection of people, animals and nature: Our merino wool comes from selected farms that comply with our own wool standard: the ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE. These farms are regularly monitored within the framework of the OWP to ensure that the highest standards of animal welfare are maintained. The OWP is our 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!
