Our proprietary Vapor Wool fabric is a lightweight and ultra-fast drying tri-blend that has a relaxed fit, making it the perfect piece for a day that transitions from mountain function to town life. The deep zip hooded style adds extra protection from wind without bulk and makes it a must-have piece for life on the go. Wool is anti-microbial, so there is no odor, and this heathered year-round fabric has natural stretch. Our Rambouillet-Merino wool is 100% grown in Montana and the custom yarn is knit and sewn entirely in the USA.
Made from the finest 100% Helle Rambouillet merino, this soft, lightweight and airy rib construction has plenty of stretch. Wool hats famously perform by allowing your head to breath (unlike synthetics). Prevents overheating by quickly transporting the heat to the outside and quickly evaporating. Can be worn cuffed or unfolded.
Take the gaiter one step deeper. Made from our famous Hydro-ply fabric, the microfiber poly inside will quickly wick away warm humid air while the wool outer disperses moisture into the atmosphere. Sounds technical but it simply works great in colder conditions.
