One of Varusteleka's most successful products, the Merino Wool Hoodie is a multi-purpose garment without a comparison. You've seen Ian wearing this on his channel; now you can get yours with the Forgotten Weapons logo.

  • Superb cut, handy pockets
  • Merino wool: comfort, insulation, and breathability
  • Works as a top layer or under a shell jacket

The hoodie is cut and made like a sports garment for cool weather but looks smart enough to be worn anywhere. It's a technical shirt without looking like one.

Made in EU (Lithuania).

Cut and Details

Slim hourglass fit with a long hem, even longer in the back. High-quality zipper on the front with a flap on the backside to prevent it from making contact with the skin. The collar is high, so you really don't need a scarf or a neck tube, just zip up. The hood has drawcord tightening and works under a helmet during cold weather. Thumbholes on the sleeve cuffs – reinforced against wear and can be rolled up if not needed.

Pockets

The hoodie has sort of five pockets: Two handwarmer pockets (can also carry one wine bottle each) and a large pocket on the back that can be accessed from either side. We count this pocket as two. The pocket linings are made of slightly elastic polyester fabric.

On the left sleeve, you'll find a zippered smartphone pocket big enough for even the large models. The pocket has a 80 x 140 mm / 3.2" x 5.5" patch base and the Varusteleka logo embroidered black-on-black for subdued looks.

Size info

The sizes include recommended user measurements: height and chest circumference. These are based on the body of an athletic male. The hem and thumbhole sleeves are very long, so it's suitable for much taller people than usual. If you are tall and don't use thumbholes, the Regular length is suitable even up to 190 cm / 6' 3" folks.

Depending on your body type, you might want to check out the garment measurement charts below and compare them to shirts you already own. The widths are measured laid flat e.g. the chest width is from armpit to armpit. The front and back lengths are measured from the bottom of the hood, the sleeve length is measured from the shoulder seam.

Material and Care

Made of certified mulesing-free Merino Wool.

Now, as the material is mostly Merino wool, it has a plethora of nice qualities: warm even when wet, doesn't really soak in water either, doesn't absorb nasty smells easily (i.e. you don't have to wash it that often) and doesn't feel itchy.

  • Weight and fiber thickness: 350 g/m2 / 10 oz, 19.5 micron
  • Interlock weave blend: 78% Merino Wool, 19% Viscose, and 3% Elastane
  • Reinforcements: 52% Polyamide, 48% Merino Wool, 245 g/m2

Machine-washable: Wool Program max. 40°C / 104°F. Washing all the time is not necessary thanks to the antimicrobial properties of wool. Air after use and the days between washes will be increased.

Abrasion resistance

When it comes to abrasion resistance, this hoodie does quite well for a wool garment, but has its limitations. Especially in desk jobs, the forearms rest and move against the table edge, and the elbows are another common wear point. Mind these spots and don't lean on everything like a lazy sack to avoid repairing the garment for a very long time!

Carbon Footprint

The estimated amount of greenhouse gas emissions from the production of one single item is 37.19 kg CO2e. The estimation includes the entire production of the item, from the raw materials up until the finalized product exiting the factory. Read more about the calculation method.

I just received this garment and already can't recommend this hoodie enough! Most importantly, I *DO* have a wool allergy but the way the merino is prepared does not bother my skin in the slightest. It is the first wool garment I can actually feel safe in leaving on for an extended period! The texture is wonderful - tightly knit, smooth and soft to the touch. I can feel a cozy shell-like layer of warmth keeping the Canadian autumn chill off my skin but I'm not getting clammy or feeling stuffy like with synthetic sweaters. The fit. is. excellent. As someone who could *almost* do with a large, the medium size fits very comfortably, doesn't need to stretch to zip up, and is plenty long enough in the torso to keep a chill from creeping up my back. The sleeves are plenty long enough for me to use the thumb holes in the cuffs without feeling stretched. The cut of the hoodie has a great fitted/tailored silhouette all the way up to the hood, which is also form-fitting - No 'wizard cap' at the peak! As a long-time fan and patron of both Forgotten Weapons as well as Varusteleka, this product easily lives up to the reputation of both brands.

Fairly scratchy to begin with but it will go away with ware and a wash cycle or two. The Velcro for patches on the left shoulder does not flex to the same degree as the rest of the garment and might take a little getting use to but its not obtrusive. Otherwise, very comfortable, lots of pockets, and warm.
