Looking for an ultralight, windproof mid-layer that’s broiler-warm around your core while letting your arms run free? Look no further than the Ortovox Swisswool Piz Boe vest. Its built-in hood, sensibly situated front pockets, and windproof, water-resistent outer membrane make the Piz Boe the top of the pops in winter touring vests.
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 Boe vest, and not just because it’s so cozy and functional.
