It’s Soft Shell Gold!
Ortovox’s Women’s Piz Duleda Jacket astonishes the alpine world with a soft shell jacket that is lined with Merino wool. The incredibly soft lining is just one of the features that differentiates this jacket from the rest of the pack. This soft shell can be used for backcountry skiing, snowshoeing, or even hiking a 14er in windy fall weather. Regardless of your activity, you’ll notice the comfort factor as soon as you zip it up.
Once you can get past the Swiss wool, you will notice the Polyamide outer shell material. While it is one of their lightest soft shell products, the Piz Duleda offers an extremely stretchy, durable material to protect against all conditions. It is both water resistant and features specialized zones that allow for breathability. The back of the jacket retains less wind resistance, thus more breathability, while making your ascent or while wearing a backpack. A perfect combination while you are out on Buffalo Pass getting some backcountry turns in. Make use of the pit zips, we have all come to expect, if your run requires even more breathability. Don’t forget to notice the wrist cuffs. They may be even more soft than the Merino wool and are mostly made of elastic. This means you don’t need to worry about the snowy drafts leaking in because of a bad transition from glove to jacket.
Now that you are enjoying the feel and features of the Piz Duleda, you’ll notice the price tag. You may think, why is this jacket more than some competitors? The simple answer is the progressive world class materials used to construct it and the fact that it is stitched together in Europe. This is socially responsible location than some other places. Better products and more responsible labor make it even more attractive.
The Piz Duleda Jacket is available at Ski Haus in either Aqua or Light Blue and sizes small through large for $320.00
