Since founded in 1980 ORTOVOX has stood for a sophisticated protection and comfort system for the mountains, characterized by the responsible treatment of people and nature.

Merino Wool from Tasmania

ORTOVOX has been putting its trust in wool since 1988. The first functional underwear made from Merino wool was introduced by ORTOVOX in 1995. Our expertise lies in the intelligent combination of this natural material with other innovative fabrics. The resulting easy -wear system provides unique functionality and wear-comfort properties for all mountain adventures. We know where our Merino wool comes from and can guarantee it is ethically and sustainably sourced. In 2012, ORTOVOX discovered Tasmania as a source of merino wool. The raw material for mountainwear now comes from over 60,000 sheep on selected farms. The ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE provides the necessary transparency for the company, for dealers and for customers. This wool standard ensures that the production systems on our farms fully comply with ORTOVOX’s high quality requirements.

Swisswool Insulation

Swisswool comes from the harsh mountainous landscape of the Swiss Alps. This provides an almost unlimited habitat and rich, natural food sources for over 400,000 Swiss mountain sheep. ORTOVOX has been working with Swisswool in its insulation products since 2011. The special features of wool fibers from Switzerland are their outstanding thermal properties and excellent climate control, as well as their regional origin.

Avalanche Rescue Equipment

ORTOVOX’s roots are in emergency products. We stand for maximum protection, simplicity, reliability, and a pioneering spirit. ORTOVOX AVABAG avalanche backpacks, avalanche transceivers, avalanche shovels and avalanche probes are always there in an emergency. When speed is of the essence they offer impressive reliability and ease of handling.
