The Swisswool Pro Lobster Mittens will impress with its functionality and design. These mittens with movable forefinger will keep you warm and yet allow you to feel and use your fingers. Ortovox uses tried and tested Swisswool as insulation material. The Swiss wool, together with a waterproof BREATEX™ membrane, guarantee that your fingers will stay warm. Goatskin leather on the palms provides the necessary grip and is robust and durable. The backs of the hands are adjustable and the wrist cuffs can be adjusted using an elastic cinch cord, giving you a great fit. Ortovox also uses wool for the inner lining. Wool can absorb a lot of moisture without feeling wet – it warms you, even when it is wet. The Merino wool lining on the palm provides the ideal climate for your hands, and the fluffy sheep’s wool lining on the back of the hands keeps them really warm. Whether on ski tours or icy days, for freeriding or on expeditions, the Pro Lobster Gloves will provide you with the necessary protection.
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!
