Digital avalanche transceivers by Ortovox offer intuitive handling in addition to interesting functions for experienced freeride professionals. The Ortovox Patroller is a fully digital avalanche transceiver.

State-of-the-art digital avalanche transceivers like the Ortovox s1 have become standard for many backcountry skiers. Whether digital or anolog, avalanche transceivers are considered indispensable pieces of equipment these days when heading into avalanche terrain; the Ortovox f1 is a classic analog avalanche transceiver. Analog avalanche transceivers are cheaper than their digital counterparts, but require somewhat more practice to be used safely. Digital transceivers have proven their worth in stressful situations and when being used by inexperienced freeriders or ski tourers.

The Ortovox Patroller has a scanning function for multiple burials and its three antennas enable the user to locate buried avalanche transceivers with great precision. What sets the Ortovox s1 apart from other avalanche transceivers is its uniquely intuitive use. The s1's simplicity lets the user feel safe and confident when ski touring. Once the s1 has been turned on it only needs to be flipped open to switch to search mode.

Those who carry a transceiver must of course also carry a probe and shovel as part of their freeride safety equipment. Ortovox offers several different models in varying price categories. The complete set of safety equipment can be stored in Ortovox backpacks spacious enough to accommodate both safety gear and extra baggage for longer ski tours. Ortovox backpacks for climbing are usually somewhat smaller, and then there are especially narrow backpacks for the bare necessities.

Ortovox Merino

Ortovox Merino clothing is made from the wool of Merino sheep. Merino wool is always used when optimum climate control is needed. The great benefit of Merino wool is that it still provides warmth when wet. Ortovox mostly uses Merino wool for base layers, shirts, and athletic pants. But also for places on outer layers especially susceptible to cold. The Ortovox Piz Bianco hooded jacket features innovative wool padding, making it a great extra layer for cold days.

You can always find great deals in the Ortovox Outdoor Outlet. Just have a look and see for yourself!

Brand Portrait Ortovox

Ortovox stands for innovation and safety in the mountains

A pioneer in safety equipment and a specialist in innovative merino wool apparel: Brand Ortovox has monopolised the outdoor market for over 35 years. What standards does the company set for itself and its products? A Portrait.

Ortovox Logo

It ail started with an avalanche beacon. In 1980 Gerald Kampel and Jürgen Wegner developed the twin frequency Ortovox F2 device, which for the first time could send two frequencies out simultaneously. This was the beginning of the Munich company's success story. ORTOVOX is derived from: ORTO (a derivative of "places") and VOX (Latin for "voice"). Other safety equipment such as a shovel, and one of the first deep snow backpacks with a safety compartment were to follow. As early as 1988 Ortovox climbed the outdoor market with its ski-touring clothes made of pure felted new wool. Since then, the clothing distribution has contributed to the company's continual growth. Merino wool fibre has been a part of Ortovox clothing since as early as 1995 with avalanche safety equipment remaining an important priority, as it has over the past 35 years.

Ortovox: From safety equipment to Merino

One question pops to mind when considering Ortovox history: How did they get from technical safety equipment to wool? Thomas Moe, product developer for Ortovox clothing explains: "Textiles also have to do with safety. Our colour selection especially aims at being visible on the mountain." For these Merino experts, wool is obviously the first choice of fabric. Wool is functional and creates an optimum body climate. Ortovox now offer a complete merino wool clothing system - from underwear, base layers to merino fleece jackets, softshells and even outer layer hardshells. In almost every Ortovox garment there is at least a small merino wool component - similar to the chilli spice in a soup: "Chilli soup won't just have chilli as an ingredient - just a little goes a long way to make the recipe work" says Thomas.

Especially when it comes to protection - a further safety aspect of clothing - it is often better to work additionally with synthetic materials. The motto in apparel is therefore: a combo of high-tech and natural fibres. This distinguishes Ortovox clothing from other Merino brands: Innovative wool synthetic fiber blends such as Nuyarn combined with vibrant colors and unusual designs, that Thomas Moe describes adaptly as "funky".

Even with warming insulation fill, the Bavarian company uses wool - in its jackets and vests instead of down or synthetic alternatives, Ortovox use the innovative Swisswool as a filling.

Wool: Not just for winter

Innovative wool fibre blend isn't just restricted to ski touring clothing in Winter. Ortovox extended its range, for example in summer 2016 specifically for alpine climbers, high alpine touring and mountain trekking and hiking. Also a new line of backpacks that combine well with this line also hit the market - naturally at Bergzeit as well!

Mountain safety: equipment and trademark

The company sees its core values continuing in safety and would like to continue as pioneers in the industry. CEO Christian Schneidermeier puts it: "Ortovox protects, that is our mission, we want to offer the most sophisticated protection and comfort systems on the mountain. Innovation, functionality and wool play an important role and we will not forget our alpine origin".”

Ortovox möchte als “Schutzmarke” seinen Kunden nicht nur ausgefeilte Lawinensicherheitsausrüstung bieten, sondern sie auch bei der richtigen Anwendung der Produkte und bei der sicheren Tourenplanung unterstützen. | Foto: Ortovox/Hansi Heckmair Ortovox want as a "trademark" to offer its customers not only sophisticated avalanche safety equipment, but also to assist in the correct use of its products and in safe ski touring. | Photo: Ortovox / Hansi Heckmair

Ortovox takes its role seriously and it shows by the fact that the manufacturer intends to offer its customer a complete service. This includes, in addition to equipment and the correct use of it, a safe and successful ski tour. "We want to be a trademark," explains marketing director Hendrik Reschke. Therefore, his team has invested much time and effort in launching all-round safety issues that the Ortovox Safety Academy provide in cooperation with online mountain schools and live courses in basic knowledge on the mountain. A free mountain touring map complements the full range of ski touring tips, avalanche report, inclinometer, offline maps and more.

Sustainably made…

Aside from the safety of its customers on the mountain, Ortovox is also active in the social and environmental aspects of the manufacturing of its products. One important step was joining the Fair Wear Foundation in July 2015. An interview with Katrin Bauer, the coordinator for both Ortovox and Deuter for implementation of the Fair Wear guidelines, shows how important this issue is within the company and its employees. Even though it's not always easy with all the complexity of relationships between supplier, little by little whatever issues come forth are slowly worked on.  " With Fair Wear one has a relatively good opportunity to see that the suppliers overall working conditions are fair." explains Karin. "With merino wool, there is no general standard. However even here we can use our influence and strive to go deeper into our supply chain.”

Where is Ortovox produced? Part of the textiles are produced in Europe such as the fleece and softshell jackets. Much of the sewn products such as backpacks, hardshells and pants are made in Vietnam. According to Katrin Bauer "a top country for outdoor products with relatively high labor standards, stringent legislation and a large know-how in manufacturing of complex textile products.The completeness of manufacturing facilities that are found in asia are simply not available in Europe" says the textile expert. "There are simply not enough heavy fabric sewers and similar professionals in Europe.”

Swisswool is however a completely different story. The production chain, from the beginning of the wool's history to the finished garment is made in Europe. Ortovox's merino wool comes largely from Tasmanian farms in which tight contact is maintained. A high emphasis is placed on the ethical recruitment of farmers.

… Not just a trend

Sustainability at Ortovox isn't only about the origin of the materials and production. Merino as a trend: "It pleases us to be part of a trend, but trends aren't our priority, the products are. We will continue to strive on our core competence:... safety in the mountains," says CEO Mr Schneidermeier. "Sustainable business is not always easy and not always financially favourable, but I am convinced that it is the only way to remain successful in the long term. Not only in the outdoor industry."

Certainly the most important choice of direction in recent years was the decision not to only make products made from 100 percent wool. "With the blend of wool and non-wool fibres we have been able to optimize not just the first layer of clothing, but also offer a matching second and third compatible layer, which has expanded our wool competence immensly” mention Schneidermeier." In the future we are planning to further strengthen the safety aspects of hardwear equipment. "Ortovox is staying true to its roots!
