AVABAG SELECTED AS PRODUCT OF THE YEAR
The courage to try something new and go our own way has paid off again this year. The safety experts from Taufkirchen won no fewer than four ISPO awards in the ski category. The PRODUCT OF THE YEAR award for our avalanche airbag system was a particular highlight. The extremely light and sensationally compact 690g* airbag system was achieved using innovative airbag processing technology. For the first time ever, the material has been processed without sewing and without additional waterproofing. More information about the airbag system and an exciting video can be found at www.ortovox.com/de/avabag. The AVABAG video can only be found on this landing page.
*Weight fluctuations of +/- 4% may arise during manufacturing.
The 2L ANDERMATT JACKET from the SWISSWOOL BLACK line can celebrate, too. This freeriding jacket, filled with black Swiss wool, was awarded GOLD – as was the PEAK alpine tour backpack. What makes this backpack so special is the back system made from Swiss wool, which can absorb almost 30 times more moisture than conventional back systems. The WINNER in the ski category is the PORDOI freetouring jacket, which serves the requirements of both ski tourers and freeriders. The PORDOI JACKET is extremely breathable and, thanks to a new schoeller® membrane, protects against wind and wet.
