A comfortable hoodie has become a staple in most closets. But do you have one made of merino wool?
The Ibex Indie Hoodie is an incredibly versatile piece for any outside adventure. The lightweight design makes it perfect for hiking, camping and other outdoor pursuits when you’re unsure what the weather may bring. When the temperature falls, it will keep you plenty warm. But one of the benefits of merino is that it can also help you stay cool when the temperature rises. For those heading to the mountains, this top is an excellent hedge against whatever weather comes your way. The flatlock stitching eliminates chafing, while the scuba-style hood stays in place when you need it — and even fits under a helmet when mountain biking or rock climbing. While made with 100% merino wool, the Indie Hoodie features a proprietary MECool steaming process that makes the material feel cooler to the touch. It compresses nicely in a backpack, and the long quarter-zip gives you plenty of ventilation when your body heats up.
You have to pay a premium for merino wool, but once you experience its benefits, it’s hard to ever go back to that cotton hoodie in the closet.
