DISCOVER MERINO WOOL: The Best CLOTHING for hiking AND BACKPACKING  

Not just a winter fabric, the natural qualities of Merino wool also shine through when temperatures rise. It breathes, wicks sweat, and even provides UV protection from the sun's harmful rays. Merino wool is the secret to a fool-proof hiking and backpacking layering system for cold or hot conditions.

(m)Force™ Technology

Ridge Merino's exclusive (m)Force™ Technology offers the benefits of Merino Wool, and then some. This nylon core, Merino wool technology results in super-soft and comfortable backpacking layers that hold their shape, and offer better recovery to eliminate stretching over time. This means they last longer and are 50% stronger than Merino wool fabrics of similar weight. Add increased breathability and quicker drying and you'll be hard-pressed to find a better option for your hiking and backpacking needs.

Merino Wool Fabric

Merino wool is the best choice for hiking and backpacking layers. Comfortable, versatile, lightweight Merino wool regulates body temperature by releaseing heat and keeping sweat away from your skin, plus it offers natural sun protection for long day hikes. Throw on an extra layer to stay warm when the weather cools.

 

TESTIMONIALS


"Love this hoodie! The fit is perfect. I’m 5’9” and the large is perfect. Love the length. It’s lightweight but warm. It’ll be a perfect layer for shoulder season backpacking."

Deborah H. ON Women's Hyde Merino Wool Hoodie - Women's Merino Wool Clothing

"The gridded material regulates heat extremely well when working hard. I have comfortably worn this hoodie from below freezing to 65°F... The length of the back and sleeves is generous which prevents it from riding up with a pack on and makes the thumb holes comfortable to use."

Kyle ON Men's Convict Canyon Merino Wool Hoodie - Men's Merino Wool Clothing

"Versatile and sweet. I bought this lightweight hoodie for hiking and biking. I live in it! It is very comfortable and always seems fresh. Very smooth on my skin. I think I might acquire one in another colour in Spring."

- Rita W ON Women's Solstice Lighweight Wool Hoodie – MERINO WOOL SHIRTS WOMEN'S

"I LOVE this top! It fits perfectly! It’s a little flowy and stylish and hits me right at the hips, so there’s a little bum coverage. It’s comfortable and the price is so great. It’s the perfect layering piece for work, travel, or working out. Love it!"
