TECHNICAL Swisswool JACKET FOR HIGH ALPINE TOURS
Functional merino fleece jacket with Swisswool inserts for ski tours and high alpine tours
- Water and wind-resistant
- Swisswool insulation for additional warmth and protection
- Fine merino wool on the inside
Swiss virgin wool meets Tasmanian lightness: The WESTALPEN Swisswool HYBRID high-alpine touring jacket for women features a unique combination of SWISSWOOL insulation material and MERINO FLEECE GRID with Tasmanian merino wool on the inside.
The 60 g/m² Swisswool lining is used anywhere where additional protection and warmth is required. Sustainable Swiss virgin wool has been packed in an elastic, breathable and wind-resistant Swisswool TEC-STRETCH material. MERINO FLEECE GRID has been integrated into this hybrid jacket to complement the lightweight lining and elastic outer material: fleece material provides a great deal of freedom of movement, is comfortable on the skin and boasts good heat retention properties thanks to its channel structure. Tasmanian merino wool on the inside also regulates moisture and temperature levels, is soft on the skin and is naturally odor-neutralizing. A combination of Swisswool at the chin and FLEECE GRID MATERIAL at the neck provides optimum climate control. A backpack-compatible breast pocket provides room for storing trail bars, cell phone or map.

Our sustainable MERINO WOOL comes from monitored, ethical sheep farms. It is comfortably soft, easy to care for, and provides an optimum body climate thanks to its moisture- and temperature-regulating properties.
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.
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.
