2L Swisswool Andermatt Jacket
Seek out deep, untouched big mountain lines in the 2L Swisswool Andermatt Jacket from Ortovox. The jacket boasts a combination of a highly breathable, waterproof membrane and the rare wool of black sheep as insulation. Black wool is seldom used in the industry because white wool is easier to come by and won't show through the garments. As such, black wool is often regarded as a waste product. However, by utilizing black wool, the Andermatt jacket is more unique and sustainable while still providing all the benefits of wool insulation. For example, these high-quality fibers can absorb up to 35 percent of their own weight in moisture without feeling wet to the touch. Wool insulation will also keep you warm both when active and when resting.
This comfortable insulation is protected by a Dermizax NX membrane that offers blocks all weather conditions while still remaining extremely breathable for comfortable temperature regulation when you're pushing it on the uphill or blasting through fresh pow on the descents. Under arm zippers also help vent heat to keep you cool while a removable powder skirt keeps the fresh flakes from creeping up your back. Should you spend a day at the resorts, a sleeve pass pocket makes getting on the lifts a breeze while three dimensional volume hand pockets store your necessities so you can spend less time in the lodge and more time on the slopes.
