Less weight, more performance
Lightweight, water-resistant insulating vest with SWISSWOOL for ski tours
- less weight with increased insulation
- excellent moisture regulation
- maximum freedom of movement
The SWISSWOOL PIZ BOÈ VEST for men is ideal for the discerning ski tourer who knows that less is more: less weight, less volume but more performance.
The robust PERTEX® QUANTUM shell makes the lightweight insulating vest extremely windproof and abrasion resistant, with the quilted outer fabric providing a stylish pixel look. A 60 g/m2 SWISSWOOL® lining not only provides excellent insulation against the cold, the fibers also have a moisture-regulating function, absorbing up to 35% of their own weight in moisture. Thanks to its athletic cut and elastic MERINO NATURETEC LIGHT in the back, the SWISSWOOL PIZ BOÈ VEST for men adapts to your every move, even in the most demanding terrain.
The tight-fitting, elastic hood and elastic waistband keep the wind and cold at bay even on freezing summits. The two generous front pockets provide additional space for essentials you may need to keep at hand, even if you have a backpack or belt.
The SWISSWOOL PIZ BOÈ VEST for men is thus the ideal companion for demanding tours, where low weight and maximum performance are required.

We have been using SWISSWOOL – wool fibers from Switzerland – as insulation material since 2011. A sustainable wool of regional origin, it warms superbly even when wet, is easy to care for and offers a perfect microclimate.
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.
SCHOELLER®-NATURETEC is a weatherproof softshell combination of fine MERINO WOOL and durable polyamide. It is elastic and comfortably soft, and its high breathability provides a good body climate.
