Even more functionality on warm days: It has long been proven by the MERINO COOL line that MERINO WOOL and TENCEL®, THE FIBER MADE FROM EUCALYPTUS WOOD, are a perfect match. In the 120 MERINO COOL TEC line, this combination is now even more DURABLE, and maintains the same naturally COOLING EFFECT. In an elaborate process (CORESPUN TECHNOLOGIE BY © SÜDWOLLE GROUP), the fine merino and Tencel® fibers are spun around a core of polyamide filaments. The resulting yarn is used to produce a material that has the same benefits of merino wool and Tencel® and is even more ROBUST at the same time.
The 120 COOL TEC T-shirt for men is the right choice for mountain tours, no matter how demanding: Alongside the cooling effect of Tencel®, the casual cut ensures good wear comfort on hot days in the mountains. The small laser-cut pocket made from an elastic material containing Lycra® is not only used for stowing away small items, it also makes the shirt look great in everyday life: the color of the pocket stands out from the T-shirt and conceals a discreet ORTOVOX logo. Ortovox have put Lycra® inserts in the shoulders to provide sufficient protection from scuffing.
THE NATURAL PARADISE OF TASMANIA
100 % of the merino wool from this collection comes from the Australian island of Tasmania. The wool from this natural paradise is high-quality, thin (18 microns at ORTOVOX), and tear-resistant. But just as important for us, this material is ethically and ecologically sound. Ortovox have very high expectations of the farmers. A large portion of their working time is committed to ensuring sustainable farm management and animal welfare.
Material: 52 % virgin wool (MERINO) + 36 % lyocell (Tencel®) + 12 % polyamide
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!
