COMPETITION: WINNER - Win a SALEWA Ortles 2 TirolWool Celliant Jacket worth £250

WINNER: Bede

TirolWool Celliant is a unique wool technology: a reflective hybrid insulation that outperforms conventional wool and synthetic alternatives. Efficient, warm, soft and low-bulk, it is created by blending 40% natural TirolWool with 60% Celliant, a polyester fibre with embedded thermo-reactive minerals that reflects and recycles radiant heat back to the body.

Originally used in medicine and science, Celliant increases the thermo-regulating function of TirolWool, improving its warmth-to-weight ratio and making it feel softer and more comfortable to wear. Celliant is permanent as it is blended into a resin and embedded into the core of each fibre. And the sheep? Resident in South Tyrol, these tough dudes live year-round at 2,000m in harsh conditions where normal sheep wouldn't survive.

The Ortles 2 TirolWool Celliant Jacket, which takes its name from the Tyrol region of western Austria, is a technical outer garment with a bluesign-approved water-resistant nylon double ripstop shell over 100-weight TirolWool Celliant insulation. Cut for mobility, it features high-reach sleeves to ensure no hem lift. There's a zipped chest pocket, two outer and two inner pockets, and an insulated helmet-compatible hood.

The question and answer options are somewhat misleading given that the article states:

" Resident in South Tyrol, these tough dudes live year-round at 2,000m in harsh conditions where normal sheep wouldn't survive"

The countries in which you find Tyrol and South Tyrol, respectively, are not the same.

Google agreed with you so I had to read a bit more of the Wikipedia article than normal to get the right answer.

So, to save me the trouble, whats the answer then?

5 Nov

Agreed. The Wiki for 'South Tyrol' doesn't give any of the answer choices. So I chose the best fit.

Hi all, admittedly the question + answer was a bit confusing (I've just learned a lot about Tyrol and South Tyrol from their respective Wikipedia pages...) so I've made the answer clear in the competition text.
