BLACK SWISS WOOL FOR SUSTAINABLE FUNCTIONALITY WHEN FREERIDING
Very warm, wind and waterproof freeriding jacket with SWISSWOOL insulation
The black sheep with a FREERIDE LOOK: With a new design and new features, the 2L SWISSWOOL ANDERMATT JACKET for men is making its own way through the deep snow!
It still boasts a combination of high-performance Toray Dermizax®NX membrane as outer material and the rare wool of black sheep in varying weights. As such, this 2L hardshell jacket is the only ORTOVOX FREERIDE hardshell construction with insulation: the warm SWISSWOOL lining is complemented perfectly by the protective Toray Dermizax®NX membrane. This freeride jacket provides optimum insulation in freezing temperatures while also keeping moisture, snow (min. 20,000mm) and wind at bay. Unlike synthetic fibers, it warms when you’re very active but also when you’re resting. ‘The 2-way stretch material provides sufficient freedom of movement and moves with you on short ascents and long descents!
In order to improve both individuality and performance, we have optimized not only the design, but also the features in the SWISSWOOL ANDERMATT JACKET for men: The breast pocket and the inside and front pockets have all been revamped, and fine MERINO WOOL has been added around the chin area. Tried-and-tested features such as the ski pass pocket and underarm ventilation zippers have been retained, lending the jacket the coveted freeride style. Additional protection against snow and wind is provided by the 2-way adjustable hood, removable snow guard and adjustable hook and loop fasteners, which guarantee a perfect fit.
The use of black wool makes the 2L SWISSWOOL BLACK 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.
High-performance Dermizax® NX membrane provides protection against all weather conditions while remaining extremely breathable up to 32,000 g/m²/24h. Dermizax® NX boasts higher values than Dermizax® DT and Dermizax® EV.
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.
