This just in! We are beyond stoked to have not one, not two, but THREE Ridge Merino wool products featured in Outside Magazine's 2023 Winter Buyer's Guide.
1. The Best Women’s Workout Gear of 2023: the ALL NEW Women's Send-It Merino Sports Bra:
The Send-It Merino Bra features
the "Five S's":
- Soft Merino next to skin
- Stable support
- Seamless construction
- Sweat wicking
- Stink free
According to Outside, it's "one of the most comfortable sports bras we’ve ever encountered..." with "...just the right amount of compression for high-to-medium-impact workouts for small and moderately sized chests, and good support for medium-impact activities for those with larger chests."
"And man, is this bra sweat-wicking; one of our testers wore it long after a workout (more than once) and it dried so quickly she forgot she hadn’t changed—it felt like a fresh bra again. Another huge pro: It doesn’t get stinky like many synthetic sports bras do, so you can wear it more times before washing."
The Hyde Merino Joggers are not your average sweatpants. Sure, they are crazy comfortable and cozy, but they are cut in a premium fit and designed with upgraded features like zippered hand pockets and recycled drawcords. However, what really separates it from the pack is the 100% Merino Wool Terry Knit fabric.
"These 100-percent merino wool pants pull triple duty as joggers, long underwear, and pajamas—key when packing space for a work trip is at a premium. The merino has just enough stretch for exercise , but the cut is slim enough to wear under other layers on days that drop as low as the negative twenties. One tester lived in these for three weeks during late winter in Alaska’s interior under work pants, out to town, and for workouts. The results? The pants were warm, comfortable, scent-free, and sensible for traveling to a cold climate for work."
The Convict Hybrid Baselayer Jogger is all about versatility. It’s cut to look great as a slim jogger that can stand alone on a run, working out or just hanging around your home, or work as an incredible a baselayer under ski pants.
"Multi-use gear often does many things, but does them poorly. The Convict Canyon Joggers proved to be an exception: they’re cut just-so to function well as both a baselayer and as lightweight sweats, and are built from a material that excels in a wide range of temperatures."
"Our pickiest tester—the manager and buyer at an Ashland, Oregon running shop—bestowed his greatest praise on these hybrids. “They are the perfect pants,” he said. “I was literally able to wear them for seven days straight across a multitude of occasions.” He wasn’t the only one. Testers used them under ski pants all in all conditions—from 28-degree lift-accessed skiing to 45-degree fitness skinning sessions."
