Our Story

Ridge Merino® is a family-owned business, established in 2014.
  
For more than a decade, Ridge founder Jeff Russell led the design and development of technical outerwear at Armada Skis. Over the years, he noticed that many professional skiers preferred to use Merino wool base layers instead of the synthetic-blend layers made by their sponsors. If it was so good the pros would pay for it, the value of Merino was clear.
  

We set up the Ridge base camp in Mammoth Lakes, on the East Side of California's Sierra Nevada, where high desert meets deep snow and 14,000 foot peaks. We wanted our products to evolve in a place where life means working and playing outside in a wild and highly variable environment, a place where people might backcountry ski in a snowstorm in the morning and boulder in desert sunshine that afternoon.

Ridge Merino's mission is to develop high-quality, high-value Merino wool apparel that performs as well in daily life as it does in the wildest outdoor conditions. Our clothes are clean, simple and comfortable. Ridge items cost less than you’re used to paying for comparable high-end Merino wool products. Because we sell direct, Ridge has no additional mark-up and lower overhead.

We're committed to operating in a responsible and ethical manner and working with partners that share those values. Our Merino wool is sustainably sourced, and we donate a percentage of every sale to environmental nonprofits through our partnership with 1% For the Planet.
