Whether you’re hiking, climbing, mountaineering or on a ski tour: The Ortovox Merino Light Melange Hoody for women will go through thick and thin with you. This thin fleece hoody is durable, light and suitable for both arduous and leisurely activities.
Fine merino wool and an ergonomic fit make this light fleece hoody comfortable while providing good freedom of movement. Its outer is elastic but smooth, thus offering less contact surface. The waffle structure on the inside ensures good moisture wicking and will feel dry on the skin even during arduous activities. This also makes the Merino Fleece Light Melange Hoody particularly breathable, offering optimum climate control.
In addition, this hoodie has a full-length zip and two front pockets that will provide plenty of room for cold hands or small essentials. The sleeves are held by two thumb loops, which will also warm your pulse. The protective hood has just one layer and will thus fit under any helmet.
In the Merino Fleece line, Ortovox uses the finest merino wool on the inside together with polyester on the outside. Elastane is also used to make the material elastic. This makes the line very stretchy and durable, while napped merino wool provides an excellent microclimate and breathability.
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!
