Sustainable outdoor equipment

Sports holidaymakers and hikers spend a large part of their holiday in the great outdoors. That is why this group of tourists attaches particular importance to sustainability and environmental protection. The Vorarlberg-based manufacturer Alpin Loacker attaches particular importance to high quality and environmentally friendly production in its production. Below we would like to introduce you to a selection of the products:

Men’s Outdoor Clothing

The men’s product range consists of:

  • Men’s Merino Underwear (Boxer Shorts, Long Underpants, Socks)
  • Shirts
  • Hoodys
  • Jackets
  • Hats & Headbands
  • West
  • Hiking pants
  • Walking shoes
  • Glasses

The men’s underwear is made from the popular merino wool. Merino wool has many positive properties that are especially advantageous in the sports sector:

  • Due to the special fineness compared to conventional new wool, it does not scratch
  • Natural wool smells less quickly than synthetic materials
  • Wool textiles provide particularly good protection against the cold

A great advantage for nature is that sheep’s wool textiles can later be processed into rice wool.

Hiking poles

Hiking poles support the joints – especially when descending from the mountain. This saves a lot of energy to move safely in nature. Who would want to do without their trekking poles when hiking? You should pay particular attention to the correct adjustment of the hiking poles. So the hiking poles should always be adapted to the terrain. The pole should be set a little longer on the descent and shorter on the ascent. In general, however, it should be adjusted so that the hand can grip the handle well when the arm is at right angles to the floor. The forearm is parallel to the floor and bent at the elbow.
