Minimal weight plus insulation and ventilation
Extremely lightweight fleece hoody for demanding climbing tours.
On long days spent climbing, we need lightweight material that we can rely on. The FLEECE LIGHT GRID line for women is tailored to the needs of mountaineers who require good ventilation and scuff protection but minimum weight.
Thanks to the channel structure on the inside, our MERINO FLEECE LIGHT GRID HOODY is particularly light while offering plenty of insulation in chilly temperatures. The fine Tasmanian merino wool lining is very comfortable and will regulate moisture and temperature.
The ergonomic fit of our FLEECE LIGHT GRID ZIP NECK HOODY for women provides freedom of movement when you’re on the mountain, while reinforced inserts at the shoulders and elbows offer plenty of scuff protection during demanding climbs. The protective hood has just one layer and will thus fit under any helmet. The large zip opening makes putting the hoody on and off quick and easy, even if you’re wearing a helmet.
MERINO FLEECE LIGHT GRID
In the MERINO FLEECE line, ORTOVOX uses the finest merino wool on the inside together with polyester on the outside. What is special about the MERINO FLEECE LIGHT GRID is the waffle structure on the inside: This knit construction means the material is light, provides good ventilation and a high level of insulation.
ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE (OWP)
Since 1995, merino wool has been an integral component of ORTOVOX’s mountainwear. Our merino wool comes from selected farms that comply with our own wool standard: the ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE. ORTOVOX obtains its virgin wool from verified and ethical sheep farms. These farms are regularly monitored within the framework of the OWP. 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.
The special features of wool fibers from Switzerland are their outstanding thermal properties and excellent climate control, as well as their regional origin.
