Robust freeriding jacket with very warm Swisswool insulation for particularly cold days


  • Swisswool insulation matched to each area of the body
  • Windproof and water-resistant 
  • All-round protection at the collar and hems

Backup from the black sheep: As the WARMEST INSULATED JACKET, the Swisswool ZINAL JACKET for men turns even sub-zero temperatures into comfortable warmth for FREERIDING.

Robust PERTEX® QUANTUMmaterial provides protection on the outside, while Swisswool BLACK, the rare wool of the black sheep from the Swiss Alps, is used on the inside in varying weights: with a warm 150 g/m2 on the front and in the upper sleeve area, and a lighter 120 g/m2 in the hood and lower sleeve area.

The width-adjustable cuffs with elasticated inner seams will fit comfortably over your gloves and reliably keep the wind out, as will the high collar with fine MERINO MESH inside. The Swisswool ZINAL JACKET for men also offers plenty of room for athletic turns and supports the back with a LINING OF 100 % MERINO WOOL.

It is completely PFC-FREE, CLIMATE-NEUTRAL and, thanks to the use of renewable raw materials in the insulation, also sustainable, making it an environmentally friendly choice. Simply perfect for freeriders who want to go their own way!

Pertex Quantum

Sustainable PERTEX® QUANTUM material is made of recycled polyamide, and its tight weave makes it extremely windproof and abrasion resistant yet comfortably soft. It is also particularly lightweight with a small pack size.

Ich nenne die Jacke jetzt knapp 6 Monate mein Eigen und muss sagen ich bin mittlerweile einigermaßen ernüchtert. Die Jacke habe ich in XL gekauft, was ganz gut hinkommt. Das Außenmaterial ist durchaus strapazierfähig und der Ärmelabschluss hält wirklich dicht und jetzt das Highlight, die Jacke ist warm und die Kapuze sitzt gut. Das war es dann aber auch. Die Nachteile überwiegen aber in meinen Augen und hier sind vor allem die Seitentaschen zu nennen, die leider nicht tief genug sind, um eine Mütze oder Handschuhe sicher zu verwahren. Hier besteht immer die latente Gefahr, dass diese herausfallen, was mir schon öfters passiert ist. Die Innentasche ist in meinen Augen zu klein geschnitten, so dass ein durchschnittliches Smartphone gerade mit Hängen und Würgen hinein passt. Das zweite große Ärgerniss ist der Frontreißverschluss, welcher zwar immer irgendwie funktioniert, aber insgesamt ist er doch einfach hakelig und so nicht tragbar für eine Jacke in dieser Preisklasse. Er ist zwar 2-Wege, aber was hilft das, wenn die Jacke ungewollt gerne mal von unten aufgeht. Die Reisverschluss Problematik wird bereits von vielen anderen Kunden montiert – hier wurde scheinbar an der falschen Stelle gespart und Ortovox wird seinem Qualitätsanspruch hierbei nicht gerecht Fazit: Ich würde die Jacke definitiv nicht wieder kaufen, auch wenn sie schön warm ist. I've owned the jacket for almost 6 months now and I have to say I'm somewhat sobered up by now. I bought the jacket in XL, which fits quite well. The outer material is quite durable and the cuffs are really tight and now the highlight, the jacket is warm and the hood fits well. That's it! In my opinion, the disadvantages outweigh the disadvantages and here the side pockets are particularly noteworthy, which unfortunately are not deep enough to safely store a hat or gloves. There is always a latent danger that these will fall out, which has happened to me more than once. In my opinion, the inner pocket is cut too small, so that an average smartphone just fits in with hanging and choking. The second big annoyance is the front zip, which always works somehow, but overall it's just notchy and not wearable for a jacket in this price range. It's 2-way, but what's the use if the jacket unintentionally tends to come open from below. The zip problem has already been fixed by many other customers - it seems that savings were made in the wrong place and Ortovox does not live up to its quality standards. Conclusion: I would definitely not buy the jacket again, even if it is nice and warm.

Bonjour, ce n est pas un avis mais une question, on m a offert cette veste et je me demandais si elle pouvais se porter en direct ou si elle était plus efficace sous une membrane deperlante? Qu elles sont vos retour et avis sur ce produits et dans quelles conditions? Merci Lionel
Bonjour Lionel,merci pour votre commentaire sur le produit.La SWISSWOOL ZINAL JACKET est notre veste isolante la plus chaude, conçue pour le freeride. Elle est en outre dotée d'un matériau PERTEX® QUANTUM coupe-vent et déperlant, ce qui permet de l'enfiler comme troisième couche.


The special features of the robust wool fibers from Switzerland are their outstanding thermal properties and excellent climate control. SWISSWOOL is our climate-neutral insulation material with a regional origin.
