Rough rock, craggy summits and lots of new goals for the alpine walls abound in your head: but in the spring or late summer in particular, days in the mountain can get chilly. That’s why Ortovox need companions that keep us warm on cooler days, do everything and are reliable. And that’s also why Ortovox MELANGE ZIP NECK from the MERINO FLEECE LIGHT series has been made more robust! These light and insulating tops weigh the same as before, but are now much more durable. Ortovox still use a waffle structure on the inside, which ensures good moisture wicking and therefore feels warm and dry on the skin. The outside, however, is now smooth. This means the contact surface is now smaller. Of course, nothing about the high breathability or incomparable wear comfort and perfect temperature management of the fine merino wool has changed.
The ergonomic cut of the light fleece pullover also provides sufficient freedom of movement for every move on the rock face. The hood keeps you warm in light winds and when the temperature drops in the evening. And if the sun does make a longer appearance than expected: the deep zipper opening provides pleasant cooling and means the FLEECE LIGHT MELANGE ZIP NECK for women can be taken off super quickly – even when wearing a climbing helmet.
Our MERINO FLEECE LIGHT collection is therefore at home in alpine terrain, but is also suitable for everyday use and chilled activities thanks to its casual colors.
Material: 67 % polyester + 26 % virgin wool (MERINO) +7 % elastane
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!
