Waterproof and warm, there isn't much the Ortovox Swisswool Verbier Jacket can't do for you as you traverse into the trees in search of fresh tracks. The main body fabric is Pertex Quantum Pro, both highly durable and highly water resistant, and is further buoyed by a PU coating; even without a membrane, it still delivers 20,000mm of waterproof protection, keeping you dry in waist-deep powder and on storm days where refills abound. In exchange, the fabric is lightweight, breathable, packable, and soft to the touch. Ortovox filled the Verbier with rare black sheep wool sourced from the Swiss Alps. 200g in the body provides valuable core warmth, while a lighter weight 150g in the sleeves leaves you mobile and keeps you from overheating. The numerous benefits of wool include a superb ability to regulate temperature, continue to trap warmth even when wet, high breathability, and a naturual resistant to funky odors.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
