When you don't want to worry about getting a sunburn, Ridge Merino comes through. Our collection of sun protection lightweight jackets, shirts, and more offer an alternative to traditional sunscreen that is more effective at high altitudes. So take your hiking to the next level while keeping your skin safe, and look good doing it with Ridge Merino!

Merino Wool That is Certified to Protect

Merino wool is different from traditional wool for a few reasons, one being that merino wool is the most flame-resistant of any type of natural fabric. So whether you're close to the campfire, or you're at high altitude on a sunny day, our merino wool is protecting you.

Merino Wool Technology You'll Love

Many Ridge Merino products feature our (m)Force™ Technology, which results in a fabric that dries faster and lasts longer than 100% merino wool. The (m)Force™ Technology also helps the fabric recover properly without stretching out over time and use. Whether you need sun protection clothing for fishing, backpacking, or kayaking, (m)Force™ Technology truly augments the performance of merino wool.
