Lightweight, practical and comfy polycotton ripstop trousers with an excellent cut. Because we had these made in huge volumes, the end price could be kept very reasonable.

Finally a proper hoodie - in this case the price doesn't come from a big name, but rather from the material, which is thickish Merino wool, which is probably the best fabric ever. Oh, and we haven't forgotten to design the cut properly too.

While thin Merino wool is best used for undergarments, thicker works superbly for something used as the mid or even top layer, depending on the weather. Such is our hoodie here - works well under a shell jacket, but hardy enough to be worn on its own during intense movement for example. Moreover, our hoodie looks good enough to be worn anywhere, which is certainly a nice benefit - no flashy colours or ridiculously skin tight cut here, you can certainly wear this in the pub too, even after a sweaty bike ride! Sure, when lazying it out on the comforts of home, a standard cotton hoodie does the job, but for someone who enjoys exercise, this is just so ridiculously much better in just about any situation.

Form and cut

Slim fit, with long hem. Quality zipper on the front, with a flap on the backside to prevent it from making contact with the skin if you're not wearing anything under this. The collar is so high when zipped up that you really don't need a scarf of neck tube or whatever. The hood has drawcord tightening and is suitably roomy, but not overly so - it works as an underlayer when worn with a helmet during cold weather. Thumbholes on the sleeve cuffs, of course. Reinforced against wear, and can be rolled up if not needed.

Pockets

Sort of five pockets, all are roomy. Two hand warmer pockets (volume about one wine bottle each) and a kangaroo pocket on the back, which can be accessed from either side, good place for storing gloves, hats and other accessories. On the left sleeve you'll find a zippered pocket, roomy enough for any smart phone (Iphone 6 Plus, Oneplus One tai Samsung Note 2/3/4 etc.). Hell, you could probably fit a standard set of groceries in the pockets. The pocket lining is slightly elastic polyester fabric.

As is customary these days, the sleeve pocket is covered with velcro. This means you can slap on a patch of your choice (smart people put a reflector tab on it!).

The fabric

335 g/m2 interlock weave blend of 78% mulesing free Merino wool, 19% viscose and 3% elasthane. The percentage of elasthane makes the fabric - you guessed it - just a tad elastic, allowing for free movement.

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. Probably the only real downside is the high cost, but we wager you'll be much happier using a well made quality garment than a cheap one. Actually, this doesn't even cost that much compared to similar things offered elsewhere.

If you really have to wash this, do it gently in about 30 degrees Celsius, preferably by hand but machine wash is probably OK too. The rinsing water should be about the same temperature as the washing water - this is important! For a complete, thorough washing process we have some pretty nice solutions for wool, like these two:

Size info

Sizes in the dropdown box according to recommended user's height and chest circumference in centimetres. However the material is very forgiving - this should fit taller people too. If unsure, you can always pick a size larger for longer sleeves, at the cost of form fit of course. If you are a girl, we recommend taking the chest measurement below the boobs. Normal size women usually are well off with size X-Small.

Just in case we have provided the actual measurements of the garments for each size, see the chart below. Please bear in mind that the fabric still is very forgiving despite the given measurements!
