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.

Tolle Jacke wg der Wolle und den BelüftungsRV vorne...nur leider wurde auf der Rückseite riesige nicht isolierende Bereiche mit Strech eingeführt. Das bedeutet immer eine Kätebrücke....und eigentlich soll die Jacke ja warm halten beim Ausdauersport - sehr schade! Meine Anregung: schneidert dieselbe Jacke nur lasst die Strecheinsätze weg und ggf lieber noch zwei RV im Unterarmbereich. Ich würde sie sofort kaufen! SeeYou Matti

A perfect insulated jacket to be worn under a shell for those cold days, or as an outer layer on cool days. This is my go to jacket when I need to knock the chill off the morning/evening, or when it's really cold outside and I need a warm mid-layer. The cuffs allow this jacket to layer well without bunching up at the sleeves, and the hood fits great. So whether you need a mid-layer for cold outings, or a mid-weight jacket for cool days, this is a great choice.

Den ganzen Winter im Einsatz gewesen mit der Verbier Freeride Jacke beim Winterbiken sowie an Foto- und Filmsets. Jetzt im Frühjahr auch noch. Tolle Jacke, super Schnitt, passt alles.

A fantastic jacket. I have owned this jacket for a number of years now, and love this jacket. Where I'm wearing it under my Guardian jacket, or over my fleece hoodie. The jacket is a perfect fit to both fit under the shell, and comfortably over a insulation layer. It has two large pockets and one chest pocket. I also like the gussets at the wrists. I highly recommend this jacket.

Giacca leggerissima ma allo stesso tempo calda. Prodotto tecnico da tenere sempre nello zaino

ottima giacca, calda e nello stesso tempo leggera, l'unico appunto è che avrei messo una cerniera un po' più grande da usare anche con i guanti. nel complesso è un ottimo prodotto da usare a 360 °.

The special features of wool fibers from Switzerland are their outstanding thermal properties and excellent climate control, as well as their regional origin.
