Our lightweight Merino wool hoodie lineup has something for everyone. From our lightweight, sun-protective Solstice to our ultralight Pursuit and our midweight Convict Canyon and Hyde hoodies, you'll be wearing Merino wool year round. Explore our lightweight hoodies to find the right one for you.

Best for: Sun Protection

Solstice Lightweight Sun Hoodie

Our much-loved Solstice Sun Hoodie features all the benefits of Merino wool in a sun hoodie style. With 30+ UPF, you'll be protected from the sun while moving through the mountains (just don't forget sunscreen for exposed areas).

Made of the same lightweight Merino wool in our Journey and Wander tees, the Solstice has a loose fit, a hood with drawstrings, and long sleeves with thumb holes to keep you fully protected. Our customers also love that it transitions to whatever social occasion you have planned after your hike.

Pursuit Ultralight Hoodie

Our Pursuit Hoodie is our most technical hoodie and our newest addition to the Ridge lineup. While the lightweight Solstice Hoodie is more casual, the Pursuit Ultralight Hoodie is made for your biggest adventures.

The Pursuit's incredibly light Merino wool fabric holds up well against abrasion, so you don't have to worry about rips or tears from backpack straps, climbing sharp rocks, or taking a tumble on the mountain bike. The darker colors offer 25+ UPF too. The Pursuit Ultralight Hoodie features a streamlined, seamless design with everything you need and nothing you don't.

It's the perfect mid layer to bring hiking, backpacking, ski touring, etc.
