Overall Score
With two front hand warmer pockets, one chest pocket and a large internal pocket, you can store your kit on the move which makes for a fast and efficient mountain adventure.
With no stuff sack or ability to pack down into its own pocket, the Ortles 2 is not the most packable of jackets.


Everything about the Salewa Ortles 2 Hybrid PRL Jacket is pure class. From the targeted warmth provided by 60g of Primaloft Silver insulation on the body and hood to the super durable Durastretch Powerlite on the sides, chest pocket and lower arms, the Ortles 2 Hybrid is packed full of premium design and tech features to facilitate speed and efficiency in the alpine.


Weighing in at 356g in a Womens Medium, the Salewa Ortles 2 comes with an excellent warmth to weight ratio, retains heat where it's needed and has a great-looking Euro mountain style. Available in 8 bold colourways, this is a high performance mid/outer layer for mountain athletes who know what they're doing and aren't afraid to show it.


The Salewa Ortles 2 Hybrid is a versatile piece that works perfectly as an outer layer on winter ski tours and can double up as a mid-layer to be used under a shell when you're riding the lifts in resort or when the weather turns up the burly notch. The insulated fitted hood with high collar provides a soft and warm place to hide when the wind blows and the front zip with internal full-length windproof flap ensures your core stays cosy. The stretchy, lightweight and durable Durastretch Powerlite fabric facilitates freedom of movement while simultaneously keeping rips and tears at bay and the DWR (durable water repellent) finish offers further protection when required.


The fact that the Salewa Ortles 2 is Bluesign approved just makes it even more brilliant in our opinion - a truly excellent jacket designed for fast and light winter mountain missions with minimal environmental impact.
