Tired of sweating through sunny, dry touring days in the same heavy-duty coat you use for blizzards? The Ortovox Swisswool Piz Palu Jacket is what you’re looking for. This top-of-the-line sportshell is perfect for ski-touring days and high-alpine trekking, designed with backpacks in mind -- but comfort, warmth, and style over all.
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.
