OUR MOST ATHLETIC SKI TOURING PRODUCTS WITH ZONE-SPECIFIC MERINO PERFORMANCE!
Elastic, breathable, lightweight jacket for ski tours
- extremely breathable
- optimum freedom of movement
- functional and sustainable
Functional and sustainable: thanks to the use of selected materials and its athletic cut, our ISPO Award Winner COL BECCHEI JACKET for men/women is ideal for demanding ski tours in alpine terrain.
For the main material, we’ve used tried-and-tested MERINO NATURETEC LIGHT with soft merino wool on the inside and protective polyamide on the outside. Inserts made from high-performance SCHOELLER® mesh offer protection against the elements and are extremely breathable, as the intelligent C_CHANGE membrane opens its polymer structure when the body overheats and closes it when it cools down. Air pockets in the fabric also provide optimum insulation against the cold. All materials are PFC-free – for the sake of your health and the environment.
This ski touring jacket features an athletic cut and provides unbelievable freedom of movement thanks to the use of extremely elastic materials. A tight-fitting hood protects the head from the cold and fits easily under a helmet for alpine activities. Ventilation zippers under the arms ensure additional cooling during the ascent, while elastic sleeve cuffs keep out drafts and snow. The pockets are backpack-optimized to make access easy at all times.
No matter what alpine goal you set yourself this winter, the COL BECCHEI JACKET for men/women is the ideal companion, even when conditions get tough.
c_change™ membrane from schoeller®
This active membrane is not just wind and waterproof, but also “intelligent”. Like a pine cone that opens when it’s warm outside and closes when the temperature falls, the membrane also reacts immediately to sweat build-up with special moisture and temperature management. This means the membrane’s molecular structure can adapt to different temperatures. If the body becomes too hot, the polymer structure opens in order to regulate temperature and sweat production. If it’s cold, the polymer structure closes. This mechanism results in insulation properties that are directly matched to the wearer’s body temperature and the environmental temperature.
MERINO NATURETEC LIGHT
The merino wool is directly woven together with the material from schoeller® to create the ORTOVOX NATURETEC LIGHT fabric. This combination of merino wool and durable polyamide is extremely robust and elastic – making it ideal for high-action sports. The merino wool on the skin ensures good wear comfort and an ideal personal microclimate, while the polyamide provides protection against wind and light precipitation.
Since 1995, merino wool has been an integral component of ORTOVOX’s mountainwear. Our merino wool comes from happy sheep reared on monitored, ethical sheep farms. The wool is naturally 100% ecological and therefore super sustainable. Thanks to the small-diameter fibers in its fine woolen threads, merino wool feels extremely soft and comfortable on the skin. In addition to comfort, merino wool also provides an ideal personal body climate by regulating both moisture and temperature. It is also easy to care for and, thanks to its antibacterial effect, odor neutralizing.
Our wool has its origins at the heart of a natural paradise. Where the air is at its purest, the food rich, and the climate moderate – this is where the best merino wool in the world can be found.
