Thanks to merino, you can enjoy a whole new level of outdoor comfort. The outer layer of Ortovox beanies is 100% merino wool, keeping your head at the optimal temperature and simultaneously regulating excess moisture. For the inner layer, Ortovox uses its proven super-soft blend of merino wool and Lenzing Modal®, a natural cellulose fibre obtained from beech wood. The Melange Beanie is cut a bit looser to match the lifestyle of the powder junkies.
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!
