In the 120 MERINO TEC line, Ortovox use a material mix made from 85 % virgin wool (MERINO) and 15 % polyamide.
What makes this material so special is the ELABORATE MANUFACTURING PROCESS (CORESPUN Technologie by © Südwolle Group) of the exclusive yarn: The finest Tasmanian merino fibers are spun around a stable core of polyamide fibers. This spinning technique creates a yarn with a smooth fabric appearance and low volume.
This allows the development of materials that combine the STABILITY and DURABILITY of polyamide with the proven qualities of merino wool.
The athletic cut and the racerback give the 120 TEC TOP for women maximum freedom of movement and prevent unwanted slipping when wearing. But the casual top not only cuts a fine figure while climbing: Thanks to its discreet logo, the slight folds and the rock pattern, this climbing top is definitely suitable for everyday life. The 120 TEC TOP for women is therefore perfect for summer in the Alps.
Tested and recommended by the VDBS
Since summer 2018 ORTOVOX has been expanding its long-term partnership with the Verband Deutscher Berg- und Skiführer (VDBS – German mountain and ski guide association) from emergency equipment into the clothing sector. ORTOVOX is not just a supplier for the VDBS, it is now also working together with the VDBS on project development. Products that Ortovox have developed and tested together bear the VDBS logo.
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.

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!
