Especially durable, technical softshell jacket for high alpine tours


  • Water and wind-resistant and highly breathable
  • Particularly robust thanks to technical MERINO NATURETEC RIPS inserts in high-stress areas
  • Fine merino wool on the inside

Mighty glacial crevasses, combined rock and ice terrain and impressive summits: On alpine tours, we need clothing that is adaptable and that we can 100% rely upon. This is exactly where our WESTALPEN SOFTSHELL line comes into play: A combination of scuff-resistant MERINO NATURETEC RIPS inserts, NATURETEC LIGHT material and fine merino wool on the inside makes this line robust, breathable and comfortable.

The WESTALPEN SOFTSHELL high-alpine touring jacket for men has features designed for those who value protection and adaptability from the valleys to the summits. High-quality schoeller® material means the jacket is highly breathable even on sweat-inducing ascents and boasts impressive scuff resistance. Mesh-lined inner pockets provide additional ventilation. Merino wool on the inside is comfortably soft and ensures good temperature management. The Tasmanian merino wool meets the strict criteria of the ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE, which is based upon the fair treatment of animals, farmers and the environment. And the jacket is PFC-free and manufactured entirely in Europe, thus avoiding long transport routes.

The WESTALPEN SOFTSHELL high-alpine touring jacket for men boasts impressive additional features. The hood is adjustable and has elastic inserts, the waistband and cuffs are adjustable, and the merino mesh inserts at the chin provide even more comfort.

Heute spontan gekauft, gleich 6h getragen und ich fühle mich super gut mit dieser Jacke. Ich war Freeriden und normal Skifahren im Schneefall bei ca. -6 Grad. Darunter habe ich die Swiss Merino Jacke getragen - top warm! Zwar nicht ganz winddicht bei Sturm auf 2800 m.ü.M., doch mit Bewegung hatte ich es immer warm. Der Spontankauf hat sich mehr als gelohnt und freu mich schon darauf, morgen mit dieser Jacke nochmals Spuren in den Schnee zu ziehen. Bought spontaneously today, worn for 6 hours and I feel super good with this jacket. I was freeriding and normal skiing in snowfall at about -6 degrees. I wore the Swiss Merino jacket underneath - super warm! Although not completely windproof in a storm at 2800 meters above sea level, I was always warm when I was moving. The spontaneous purchase was more than worth it and I'm already looking forward to making tracks in the snow with this jacket again tomorrow.

Our commitment to fair wool: Our own wool standard ensures that our merino wool is sourced in an animal- and environmentally-friendly manner. Our friendly relationship with our farmers enables us to have full transparency throughout the value-added chain.
