The Col Becchei is an accessible peak in the Italian Alps that tops out just over 9,000ft, offering budding Italian skiers their first exposure to no-fall zones and technical spring skiing. Appropriately named after this peak, Ortovox’s ski-touring jacket is perfectly suited for those technical missions where breathability, freedom of movement, and durability is key for success. The shell is a breathable and water-resistant nylon that’s stretchy and articulated for unimpeded range of motion. The front half of the jacket features a Merino Punchhole windproof layer to take the bite off the wind, while the back remains breathable and leverages your pack to shield you from the elements. Two humongous Powermesh front pockets are designated for skins, but you can use your creativity when filling the pockets. Athletic fit and Merino Naturetec Light allows ample range of motion, a necessity during technical climbs and descents. The Storm Hood will sneak underneath a helmet for frigid belays and dawn patrols. Ortovox encourages you to be picky with your core temperature and demand nothing less than the best, that is why pit-zips and a 100% Merino lining can be found on the Col Becchei. The gives the jacket supreme temperature regulation and sweat-wicking performance. Sustainable production, stylish design, and award-winning performance? The Ortovox Col Becchei keeps saying, “check”.
