Piz Duleda is a popular 9,500ft peak that Italians scamper up using various ascent/descent methods: via ferrata, skinning, climbing, running, you name it. If your morning routine involves skiing a mountain like the Piz Duleda, you will need nerves of steel, proper gear, and reasonable avalanche conditions. The namesake jacket from Ortovox is perfectly suited as a technical ski-touring jacket or a mid-layer in a harsh winter climate. Top-to-bottom water-resistant, treated fibers will separate you from the elements to make sure you can stay focused on your commute. The front panel of the Piz Duleda is a windproof Merino Punchhole that takes the bite off even the most ambitious gusts. The lining, what Ortovox calls the “next-to-skin” layer, is 100% Tasmanian Merino wool for which Ortovox is famous. For those unfamiliar with this natural super-fiber, Merino is a sweat-wicking, stink-busting, and thermoregulating wool that keeps you warm and dry despite outside temperature variation. The Storm Hood will sneak underneath a helmet to seal in warmth during a dawn patrol or belay. Powermesh pockets are generously sized for climbing skins. With sustainable materials, a stylish look, and outstanding versatility and performance, the Ortovox Piz Duleda is a new classic.
