Ortovox Piz Boe Insulation Jacket Men
The next chapter in the Ortovox Swisswool® story! For the Swisswool Light Tec line, they have developed technical products that are low in weight and high in comfort for demanding ski tours.
The 60 g/m² Swisswool® lining and robust nylon ripstop shell of the Swisswool Piz Boe Jacket make it ideal for ski tourers who know that less is more: less weight, less volume, but more performance. To underscore the “high-tech” aspect of this ski touring jacket for men, Ortovox uses their new elastic Merino Naturetec Light material in the underarm areas – exactly where breathability and freedom of movement are needed most.
The tight-fitting, elastic hood and elastic waistband and cuffs keep the wind and cold at bay on freezing summits. The two front pockets and the breast pocket are positioned for optimum access even when wearing a backpack or harness, and can even accommodate larger objects. What’s more, the Piz Boe Jacket has an athletic cut: The lightweight insulating jacket thus follows your movements on ski tours and fits perfectly under a 3L hardshell jacket.
Born out of a pioneering spirit and shaped by the innovative strength, Ortovox introduced the first Swisswool® products in 2011 – and simultaneously created a new segment of insulating wool products! Wool offers 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.
Ortovox uses Pertex® Quantum as the outer material for all their Swisswool Light and Swisswool Light Tec products. Pertex® Quantum uses a particularly tightly woven structure, which results in an extremely windproof and abrasion-resistant material. At the same time the material is soft and light.
