The powerful Dufour peak rises up above the clouds, the highest mountain in the Monte Rosa massif. The sun is shining, there’s not a cloud in the sky. You’re getting closer to the third-highest mountain in the Alps with every step. And it is precisely here that Ortovox DUFOUR JACKET from the SWISSWOOL LIGHT PURE line is at home!
Our technical collection with Swiss wool stands for extremely lightweight insulating products with excellent weight-to-warmth ratio. The light alpine jacket for men takes up minimal space in your backpack thanks to its light wool filling (60g/m²). This leaves more space for other items in your alpine touring backpack.
The insulated jacket is both wind and water resistant and robust thanks to the micro ripstop polyamide fabric from Toray that surrounds the precious Swiss wool. This provides you with the best possible protection against wind and moisture. And if you start sweating during demanding ascents: SWISSWOOL warms you even when wet and is also moisture regulating. It can absorb and release large quantities of moisture (better than synthetic fibers).
The ergonomic cut, the armholes edged with elastic and the elastic seam ensure a perfect fit and sufficient freedom of movement. You can store your map, cell phone or trail bar in the two front pockets.
Whether at the Dufour peak, on Mont Blanc or Piz Buin – the DUFOUR JACKET is the perfect mix of light weight and sufficient insulation!
Material: OUTER: 100 % polyamide PADDING: 88 % virgin wool (SWISSWOOL®) + 12 % polylactide (corn based)
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!
