THE FREERIDE FAVORITE FOR FREEZING TEMPERATURES
With our SWISSWOOL VERBIER JACKET for men, you won’t be following the masses – you’ll be going your own way! For our SWISSWOOL BLACK line, we process the wool of black sheep from the Swiss Alps. Inspired by these wild four-legged creatures, this line stands for individuality and maximum protection on icy days of freeriding.
The rare black wool used in the front and back areas weighs just 200 g/m², and in the arms and hood just 150 g/m², offering excellent freedom of movement. This is protected by new PERTEX® QUANTUM PRO material, which has been made even more weather resistant thanks to its PU coating. Two-layered DERMIZAX® NX membrane inserts in the shoulders ensure stability and protection.
Features like the two-way adjustable hood, elastic inner seam and the adjustable waistband guarantee a perfect fit that will keep cold air and snow at bay. And fine merino wool in the chin area provides additional wear comfort. Small items that are needed quickly when freeriding can be easily stowed in the two backpack-compatible front pockets, the inner pocket or the ski pass pocket.
The FREERIDE jacket for men is therefore ready to go its own way on endless lines in the powder!
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 has 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.
It’s the use of black wool that makes the SWISSWOOL BLACK line so special: It is seldom used in the industry because white wool is both easier to color and does not show through the outer material when used as a lining. In contrast, black wool is often a “waste product”. This is why the SWISSWOOL BLACK line, made from the rare wool of black sheep, stands for idealism and individuality.
PERTEX® QUANTUM PRO
PERTEX® QUANTUM PRO is an extremely light, windproof and abrasion-resistant material with highly water-resistant qualities. Thanks to an ultra-thin polyurethane coating on the inside of the material, PERTEX® QUANTUM PRO offers very high weather protection – even in extreme conditions. This also increases the insulating qualities of the SWISSWOOL lining material.
