No more freezing ears: Ortovox offers the 145 Ultra Headband which means exclusivity for your head because this is where you’ll find Ortovox’s best yarn. For this yarn, the finest Merino wool fibres are spun around a nylon core to combine the positive features of wool and synthetic fibres. This creates a lightweight headband that can boast all the advantages of Merino wool.
It is elastic, soft on the skin, and dries significantly faster than products made purely of wool. Thanks to the fine Merino wool fibres, this headband is also moisture and temperature regulating, odour neutral and easy to care for.
Merino wool is particularly fine and a sustainable natural product. Ortovox uses Merino wool that comes from happy sheep reared on monitored, ethical sheep farms in Tasmania. Thanks to the small-diameter fibres in its particularly fine woollen threads, their Merino wool is extremely soft and comfortable to wear on the skin. In addition to comfort, Merino wool provides an ideal personal body climate by naturally regulating both moisture and temperature. It’s also odor neutralizing and easy to care for.
For the 145 Merino Ultra, Ortovox uses the most exclusive yarn in the range: Nuyarn®. Fine wool fibers are spun around a polyamide core in a special manufacturing process. This produces a yarn that can be used to make light and voluminous fabrics. Increased warmth, comfort and stability are just a few of the benefits.
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!
