The new Haute Route is Ortovoxs' newest member of the backpack line. But this time it's much lighter and even more resistant to abrasion thanks to the use of Cordura® and double-layered 420 D Manstar nylon. To provide a great wear comfort Ortovox even revised their O-Flex back system. Its silhouette seems more slender while it still distributes the weight evenly between the hips and shoulders. The access to the main compartment of the backpack is simple. To get to your belongings you can just open a zipper on the side of the backpack. Ortovox added some great new features to the new Haute Route. It now has a crampon fastening, a fixed helmet net, a map compartment and an external rope fastening. You are ready for your next ski tour.
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!
