Smartwool Smartloft-X 60 Hoodie

The Smartwool Smartloft-X 60 Hoodie is a lightweight jacket designed for active use in moderate conditions. Smartwool uses its blend of recycled wool and polyester as the primary insulation in a low profile application that works well with other layers above or below. Folks who snowshoe, ski uphill, or climb winter peaks will appreciate the balance between insulation and ventilation this very breathable jacket has found.    Up on Table Rock in Grafton Notch (Maine) facing a sub-zero wind before… Full review

Black Diamond Aspect Wool Hoody

The Black Diamond Aspect Wool Hoody uses natural wool wadding as an insulative layer as opposed to goose down, or a synthetic fiber quilted into an insulated garment. This jacket has a surprising warmth-to-weight ratio (approximately the same as 800 fill down), while still providing wind and moisture resistance. This jacket excels in venting heat, while still providing warmth. Ideal for everyday use in both low and high-output outdoor activities, the Aspect Wool Hoody is an innovative alternative… Full review

Ibex Nomad Full Zip Hoody

Love that cozy merino and great fit, but zipper really sucks. I love merino wool hoodies.  I have an Ibex Nomad, a Smartwool Phd, a Minus33 Kodiak, and an Ibex Aire.  My favorites are the Ibex Nomad and the Ibex Aire.  I haven't come across an Icebeaker model that suits me at a decent price point (all my others are ebay or sale purchases). Each has its own particular use. For backpacking it has to be the Nomad. I particularly enjoy the non-itchy, warm, comfy feel of the brushed merino wool close… Full review

Ibex Nomad Full Zip Hoody

A warm and low-profile insulating layer for active pursuits. It has the benefits of the warmth, versatility, and odor resistance of merino wool, for those looking for an all-natural mid-insulating layer that can deal with moisture. (It does not wick moisture as well as synthetics, though). The hood and other features are welcome in this jacket. Fit might be an issue for some. This runs narrow and can be at risk of shrinkage after laundering. You can thank Ibex for this 100% merino full-zip hoody. Full review

Woolrich Wool-Lined Mountain Parka

Great three-season outer layer. Warm, durable, water resistant. The Woolrich Mountain Parka has been a very important outer layer for me for four decades of hiking/backpacking here in northern New England where I have grown up. I have worn this parka on Mts. Washington and Katahdin during winter ascents of both. It has a water resistant outer shell of what Woolrich calls Ramar Cloth that in reality is pretty waterproof. A few weeks ago I tried out my third parka in 40 years during an all-day bushwhack… Full review

Smartwool PhD SmartLoft Divide Hoody Sport

The SmartWool PhD SmartLoft Divide Hoody Sport has been within arm’s reach of me all winter. It's one of the best insulating layers I have used for resort skiing, ski touring, snowshoeing, and around town. I highly recommend this jacket for anyone looking for a well-rounded insulating layer that is different from the traditional down or synthetic options. I have had this jacket with me for every activity I participated in all winter. Whether it was backcountry skiing, resort skiing, snowshoeing,… Full review

Ibex Wool Aire Sweater

The Ibex Wool-Aire Sweater is a lightweight jacket made of lofted wool encased in water resistant nylon fabric. I wear this jacket year round. I like it best as a camp jacket after a day on a bicycle tour, but I can also wear it while riding when the temps drop. Best of all, if it rains, because it is wool, it still keeps me nice and toasty warm even if it gets wet. The Ibex Wool-Aire Sweater is one of my favorite pieces of clothing. Because the nylon shell is filled with lofted wool, it keeps me… Full review

Ibex Vim Hybrid Jacket

Made from Ibex’s own PEAK Climawool, the Vim Hybrid Jacket is two jackets in one. The front part is a lightweight, water-resistant—yet breathable—soft-shell jacket and in the back, you have breathable New Zealand Merino wool that wicks sweat to keep you dry and comfortable. It is a form-fitting jacket but does so without compromising movement or comfort and still leaves room for adding a base layer underneath. It is not overly-loud with pockets and useless frippery, delivering, instead, two… Full review
