Since 1980, providing mountaineers with the best possible protection and comfort has inspired ORTOVOX to develop revolutionary new products that make the mountain that little bit safer. For summer 2016, the Taufkirchen- based mountain sports experts will be presenting innovations that are ideally suited for mountain hikes, alpine climbing and alpine tours. Spearheading the clothing range is the new MERINO SHIELD series, which combines fine merino wool with robust Cordura®. A material mix that is extremely robust and can be found in many diffe- rent products. ORTOVOX presents not one, but two backpack innovations: The first backpack back made from Swisswool redefines temperature management for the back area with the new PEAK series. In addition to being almost weightless, the TRAD alpine climbing series also comes with a Recco reflector, which, in combination with the new SAR 1 helicopter rescue system, facilitates fast rescue from emergency situations.
