The material strength makes the 145 ULTRA LONG SLEEVE perfect for ski touring or other alpine activities. Thanks to the lightweight material and the fine wool fibers, the 145 Merino Ultra line and its exclusive yarn are ideal for cool spring or autumn days in the mountains. This makes the long-sleeved top the perfect companion for all mountaineers who value a light weight, warmth and functionality.
Incidentally, 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), and tear-resistant. But just as important for ORTOVOX, the material is ethically and ecologically sound. We have very high expectations for the farmers. A large portion of their working time is committed to ensuring sustainable farm management and animal welfare.
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!
