ORTOVOX Summer Mountainwear and Backpacks to Debut at ORSM '15

LONGMONT, CO (July 13, 2015) - ORTOVOX, the world's leading supplier of avalanche rescue equipment, is debuting the all-new Summer ‘16 Mountainwear and mountain backpack collection at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in August. The innovative and unique line includes all the apparel and packs needed for active life in the mountains.

ORTOVOX Mountainwear is a full line of apparel, which includes accessories, baselayers, midlayers, insulation, shells and fully capable lifestyle gear designed to enhance the mountain experience. Developed with performance in mind, each article of gear integrates the use of wool, either Tasmanian-sourced merino or SWISSWOOL.

Highlights of the new line include the Civetta Jacket and Civetta Pant available in both women’s and men’s styles. The design uses ORTOVOX’s proprietary 2.5 layer Merino Hardshell Light, a packable, lightweight combination of high-performance Dermizax DT membrane and a merino wool interior liner. The Civetta hardshells are 100% wind- and waterproof (20,000mm), extremely breathable (25,000g/m2/24h) while a patented Micro Bead Structure interior maintains the performance of the membrane.
