The Ortovox Piz Badus jacket is a lightweight, stretchy, wind- and water-resistant layer with real versatility. Perfect as a mid-layer on truly frigid days, but sturdy enough to serve as your only jacket for most other adventures. The Piz Badus’ sleek fit and stylish design will land you tons of “where’d you get THAT” envy, if that’s your thing. But at the end of the day it’s all about the wool:
Ortovox does wool the right way. Their Swisswool comes from hand-shorn, mountain-grazing sheep that have seen more of the Alps than most humans ever will. The supply chain underlying Swisswool is all about sustainability -- for the shepherds as well as their herds. Ortovox’s supplier has set up two dozen collection stations in valleys throughout the alps, allowing remote sheep-herding families to deliver this premium product to market in a simple, convenient, efficient fashion, and enjoy the just rewards of their hard year-round work. You’ll feel great inside the Ortovox Piz Badus jacket, and not just because it’s so cozy and functional.
