MORE FUNCTIONALITY FOR SKI TOURERS
Lightweight, water-resistant insulating jacket with SWISSWOOL for ski tours
The next chapter in our SWISSWOOL story! For the SWISSWOOL LIGHT TEC line, we have developed technical products that are low in weight and high in comfort for demanding ski tours.
The 60 g/m² SWISSWOOL lining and robust nylon ripstop shell of the SWISSWOOL PIZ BOÈ JACKET make it ideal for ski tourers who know that less is more: less weight, less volume, but more performance. To underscore the “high-tech” aspect of this ski touring jacket for men, we use our new elastic MERINO NATURETEC LIGHT material in the underarm areas – exactly where breathability and freedom of movement are needed most.
The tight-fitting, elastic hood and elastic waistband and cuffs keep the wind and cold at bay on freezing summits. The two front pockets and the breast pocket are positioned for optimum access even when wearing a backpack or harness, and can even accommodate larger objects. What’s more, the PIZ BOÈ JACKET has an athletic cut: The lightweight insulating jacket thus follows your movements on ski tours and fits perfectly under a 3L hardshell jacket.
Born out of a pioneering spirit and shaped by our innovative strength, ORTOVOX introduced the first SWISSWOOL products in 2011 – and simultaneously created a new segment of insulating wool products! Wool offers excellent thermal properties and optimum climate comfort. In addition to high functionality, SWISSWOOL is also characterized by its regional origin, as well as its sustainable production and processing.
We use Pertex® Quantum as the outer material for all our SWISSWOOL LIGHT and SWISSWOOL LIGHT TEC products. Pertex® Quantum uses a particularly tightly woven structure, which results in an extremely windproof and abrasion-resistant material. At the same time the material is soft and light.
The special features of wool fibers from Switzerland are their outstanding thermal properties and excellent climate control, as well as their regional origin.
