It's fall again, the leaves are turning and hoodie season is on. From layering up on your morning ride to nighttime commutes home, we have some good news. The ultimate cool weather go-to garment is back. The Outlier Classic Merino Hoodie.
The Outlier Merino Hoodie is made from superfine New Zealand Merino. Merino means it is soft, comfortable, warm and breathable, for everyday wear. We use an 18.8 micron grade of merino that most other companies use for next to skin garments, it's comfortable enough to rock naked. Merino is naturally odor resistant so it doesn't stink after a day (or three) of wear like so many other materials will. When you start pedaling hard, the merino wicks away moisture keeping you dry and cool. Slow down or stop though and it will keep you as warm as any other good wool sweater. Head inside and its temperature regulating properties mean you won't overheat.
From the messengers who ride all day, to the delivery guys working all night, and the commuters hitting those cold mornings trips and dark night journeys, Merino is perfect for any rider who doesn't insist on spandex. Higher neckline to keep out the wind and the extended back keeps you covered and warm even when you reach down into the drops. Raglan sleeves allow for reach and motion. The thick and comfortable ribbed cuff lets you push up your sleeves and know that they'll stay up and stay comfortable. The two way zipper lets you adjust the bottom opening and avoid awkward bunching as you pedal.
You know how when you look into your closet you always want to grab the same few items that just feel right? That's exactly what this is, the item that you want to wear everyday. Maybe not 365 days a year, but everyday from first cool breezes of autumn through to last cool days of spring. The go-to essential, the Outlier Classic Merino Hoodie.
