The best possible protection on high summits
Robust, wind and waterproof gloves for use in high mountain terrain
- Wind and waterproof
- Robust and scuff resistant
- Padding made from recycled merino wool
With the HIGH ALPINE GLOVES, every summit – no matter how high – is within reach, because these gloves are perfect for demanding days in the high mountains.
Thanks to their special O-SHIELD membrane, these high alpine touring gloves are wind and waterproof yet particularly robust and scuff resistant because the back of the hand is reinforced with additional padding made from 60 g/m2 recycled merino wool. The palms have a double layer of goatskin leather with covered seams to provide durability, while additional reinforcements on the index finger and thumb protect against wear from using poles, ropes and ice axes.
These HIGH ALPINE GLOVES also feature our soft merino wool, which has a moisture regulating effect and ensures your hands are always at a comfortable temperature. These HIGH ALPINE GLOVES are indispensable when it gets really uncomfortable in high mountain terrain.
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.
