Since the company was founded in 1980 in the south of Munich, ORTOVOX has stood for the highest possible protection during alpine activities. As pioneers in the avalanche safety field, we have played a key role in the development of emergency equipment for the mountains. Innovations such as the double-frequency avalanche transceiver and Smart Antenna Technology, and also targeted training measures, continue to be valuable contributions to making mountain sports a little bit safer and to saving lives.
Since 1988, mountain sports apparel made out of wool has enhanced the ORTOVOX product range. Our wool experts have developed a wear comfort system from the first to the third layer that offers the highest functionality, protection and comfort on the mountain through an intelligent combination of the natural material with other innovative fibers.
Sustainable management is the hallmark of all of our entrepreneurial endeavors. Commitment to safe and fair working conditions is just as important to this as dedication to the wellbeing of the sheep and the environmentally friendly manufacture of our products.
ORTOVOX sees itself as both a winter and summer brand. Our passion for untouched snow on ski tours or freerides propels the brand in the same way as shared experiences when alpine climbing, climbing mountains or on alpine tours. Friendship characterizes every interaction at the company – in the team, with customers, partners and suppliers, outside, and in everyday life.
