Ortovox Mountain Apparel: Merino at its Finest

For almost 20 years, Ortovox has been designing technical and casual apparel. Using Merino for comfort, warmth and moisture management, Ortovox sets the standard for unparalleled comfort and functionality in mountain-inspired wear.

Apparel has always been a top priority for keeping people safe in the mountains, and for almost 20 years, Ortovox has been designing technical and casual pieces for work, play or true outdoor adventure. Using Merino wool for comfort, warmth and moisture management, Ortovox sets the standard for unparalleled comfort and functionality in mountain-inspired wear.

A natural fiber praised for it’s soft and supple hand, Merino also features superior anti-microbial and warmth-for-weight properties, thermoregulation, breathability and insulation. Ortovox’s apparel employs the highest virtues of Merino at every stitch, and adds European style and color for pieces that perform beyond expectation and stand out in a crowd.

Flexible Softshells utilize Merino for thermoregulation. Featuring MCM, Merino Comfort Mapping, Ortovox strategically places panels of wool within a high output technical softshell to assist temperature management: Warmer where you need it, breathability where it counts.

Merino Fleece midlayer represents the ultimate in functionality by combining the finest Merino wool with polysester and an elastane shell for wind and moisture resistance. This super-stretchy hybrid remains soft on the inside with protection and durability that lasts.

The circular knitting process used in the Competition Merino base layer blends different thicknesses of Merino for the optimal heat balance and highest performance.

Ortovox’s Merino Hardshell integrates Toray fabric which features better water resistance, better breathability and better stretch than Gore®, with insulative Merino wool for the ultimate in protection from winter weather.

Merino Supersoft base layer and Merino Supersoft Piqué sportswear combine the preeminent Merino functionality with the incredible softness of Lensing Modal, a natural beech tree fiber harvested from sustainably managed forests. The end result is super comfortable technical pieces and sportswear for high and low output activities, perfect for sensitive skin or for those who demand the finest.

European sizing.
