The PIZ PALÜ jacket is made for ski tourers. MERINONATURETEC LIGHT has been used in areas where abrasion is likely, such as the shoulder and back areas – the exact places where the backpack sits.

The Merino wool inner provides a comfortable, soft feel on the skin and keeps the body at the right temperature. SWISS WOOL on the front and the arms provide the necessary warmth. The wool fibres weigh just 60g/m2 and are covered by breathable yet windproof Pertex® Quantum®. Pertex® Quantum® material makes use of yarn containing filaments that have a shape reminiscent of diamonds. The interlocking fibres provide the material with EXCELLENT SCUFF RESISTANCE, SOFTNESS and IMPROVED WATER-RESISTANT QUALITIES. The PIZ PALÜ touring jacket is an ideal partner for both the ascent and the descent.
The three-way adjustable storm hood is compatible with helmets, and the front pockets can be used for ventilation. The PIZ PALÜ touring jacket is an ideal partner for both the ascent and the descent.

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!
