Swisswool Jacket Piz Bianco Features:
The Swisswool Jacket Piz Bianco is an ideal ideal companion in the mountains with the blend of traditional technologies of natural Merino Wool couple with modern fabric technologies to keep out the wind. The wool is quilted into many small insulation chambers while the wool fibres trap air and of course continues to provide warmth even if it gets wet. The outer material is a lightweight and windproof micro ripstop nylon, which is very easy to clean and a nice soft and warm merino fleece under the arms allows excellent freedom of movement. With a great selection of external and internal storage pockets the Swisswool Piz Bianco Jacket is a great choice for any skier, ski tourer or mountaineer.
I was worried about using down as a mid layer during skiing as down can get compressed and lose its insulating properties when moist or wet. This jacket from Ortovox is absolutely brilliant, despite its low bulk and weight, it keeps me very warm, and even if it does get wet, still continues to do so..I have only recently discovered Ortovox as a brand, but they are fast becoming my favourite outdoor clothing manufacturer. The service from LD Mountain centre was also very good. Highly recommended
Another great product from Ortovox, backed up with good service and very quick delivery.
