Combining comfort and utility, you get everything you need in ski and snowboard base layers when you choose Ridge.

Our Merino Wool for Skiing and Snowboarding

Our Merino wool is not only renewable and biodegradable, it's also smooth and soft on your skin. It keeps your core temperature perfectly regulated, wicks sweat and breathes better than any performance fabric, so you always feel warm and never too hot or clammy. Merino wool protects you from high-alpine UV rays and is odor-resistant to boot, making it the natural choice for ski and snowboard base layers.

(m)Force™ Technology

Fabric You Need to Feel to Believe

Ridge Merino's exclusive (m)ForceTechnology produces fabric that is 50% stronger than Merino wool fabrics of similar weight, and offers better recovery to eliminate stretching over time. Add increased breathability and quicker drying and you'll be hard-pressed to find a better option for your ski and snowboard layers.

(m)Force Technology is Ridge Merino exclusive. We take super-soft Merino fibers and spin them around a continuous nylon filament for improved strength and durability. This results in incredibly durable Merino wool clothing. Read More Here.
