Beautiful lightweight insulated jacket, 100% water- and windproof
Ortovox might be a rather unknown/underrated brand in the US, so it's great that Backcountry Edge has some of their products in stock! Ortovox is a European brand. Their outdoor products are premium, with their quality being on par with Arcteryx! The Leone Jacket is very leight but provides nice insulation thanks to Ortovox's natural Swisswool used inside. On top of that, it is fully wind- and waterproof. I can recommend it both as a city jacket (Ortovox's colorways are amazing!) and for diverse outdoor activities, including hiking, climbing, skiing.
The price is really steep but you do get what you pay for! I'm not sure how long the elastic hood will actually remain elastic - I would have preferred manual adjustment.
