For long alpine tours
Comfortable, technical merino socks for long alpine tours
- Gentle, even compression
- Ergonomic fit
- Padding and cushioning at sensitive points
Check it out, high-alpine tourers: ALPINIST PRO COMP MID SOCKS for men are ideal for long ascents and indispensable on multi-day alpine tours.
The gentle, graduated compression effect between the calf and ankle facilitates the supply of oxygen-rich blood to the muscles, thus preventing premature fatigue. The ALPINIST PRO COMP MID SOCKS for men fit perfectly thanks to their ergonomic right/left fit, while their flat construction prevents creasing and pressure. Elastic cuffs and a stabilizing zone at the ankles stop the socks slipping. And the toe seam is kept flat to prevent blisters, while padding in the heel and toe areas ensures they are comfortably cushioned. And a 360-degree webbing system on the foot makes these socks especially breathable.
The benefits of merino wool really come into their own in socks, because it naturally regulates moisture and temperature. And later, in the hut, your long-suffering friends will be delighted to discover that merino wool also neutralizes unpleasant odors. The ALPINIST PRO COMP MID SOCKS for men are thus the perfect companions on long, demanding alpine tours.
Since 1995, merino wool has been an integral component of ORTOVOX’s mountainwear. Our merino wool comes from happy sheep reared on monitored, ethical sheep farms. The wool is naturally ecological and therefore super sustainable. Thanks to the small-diameter fibers in its fine woolen threads, merino wool feels extremely soft and comfortable on the skin. In addition to comfort, merino wool also provides an ideal personal body climate by regulating both moisture and temperature. It is also easy to care for and, thanks to its antibacterial effect, odor neutralizing.
ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE (OWP)
Merino wool has been an integral component of ORTOVOX’s mountainwear since 1995. The focus of this has always been the protection of people, animals and nature: Our merino wool comes from selected farms that comply with our own wool standard: the ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE. These farms are regularly monitored within the framework of the OWP to ensure that the highest standards of animal welfare are maintained. The OWP is our commitment to fair wool.
We have been using merino wool in our mountain wear layers since 1988, and we are the originators of functional wool apparel for mountain sports. The protection of people and animals has always been the central focus of all ORTOVOX activities.
