Ortovox Announces New Climate Neutral Collection for Fall 2021

Ortovox's new line of climate neutral outerwear.

As more athletes demand gear that’s good for the planet, more companies are responding with new products. Joining the lineup of companies releasing environmentally conscious gear is the German company Ortovox. Already a leader in avalanche safety gear, Ortovox’s quality wool and outerwear has also made a splash in the industry. Now, along with quality comes Ortovox’s commitment to fighting climate change. Coming fall of 2021, Ortovox will launch their new freeride line that’s promised to be 100% climate neutral. Becoming climate neutral involves taking into account the energy, water, paper, and heat consumption of a company and implementing measures to maximize reduction of their carbon footprint. Any carbon emissions that are unavoidable after this will be offset by compensatory measures. Part of the companies' mission statement are their goals to protect people, the mountains they play in, and sheep given the brand's heavy use of wool. The line will feature a shell and bibs along with one of the brand’s wool jackets and a redesigned line of freeride backpacks.

The redesigned Free Rider backpack.

The brand’s mission is to protect both people and the planet. As a result, they’ve committed to being 100% climate neutral by 2024, with this line as a huge step. Each piece in the new line boasts features that any mountain enthusiast would be excited about. Adjustable hems, a removable powder skirt and extra merino lining in those places that get cold all come in the jacket. The bibs feature long, two way zippers making exit and entry easy for all genders. The wool jacket comes with a loose fit, comfortable for making flowy turns and the perfect amount of insulation for long, cold days in the mountains. Ortovox has also completely redesigned the Free Rider backpack collection to be both climate neutral as well as comfortable and feature attachment points and compartments for any gear you could ever need. Most importantly, the Free Rider will be made from recycled polyamide and is totally climate neutral.
