Everyone loves this super comfy 95% recycled hoody with the ever-cool Patagonia Fitz Roy Bear logo. 14.9 plastic bottles and .82 pounds of cotton scrap go into the making of this sweatshirt hoody, saving 184 gallons of water versus a conventional cotton hoody. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.
They just keep making the BugsAway® Lumen™ hoody better all the time. Our customers rave about how comfortable the knit is, how it layers, and how it flatters them because of its cut. The hood, pocket, and thumb slots have been revised, but the style is still lightweight and with lots of give. BugsAway® apparel is treated with Insect Shield®, giving you invisible, odorless protection just by putting on your clothes. The treatment binds permethrin to fabric fibers for the life of the garment, so it stays in your clothes—not on your skin—and lasts through 70 washes. It's effective against ants, flies, chiggers, midges, and ticks, as well as mosquitoes, which can transmit insect-borne diseases such as Zika, Chikungunya, Dengue, and West Nile viruses. This is THE one to pack if you're going to the tropics, of course, but if you're going camping anywhere, or going to hang out in your hard, or walk your dog in the summertime. Get where I'm going with this?
Unlike man-made fibers where texture is often artificially added to yarns, wool fiber itself comes straight from the source with a high degree of natural texture. Referred to as crimp, this “spring-like” property is what gives ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGHCOUNTRY MERINO™ it’s basic foundation of strength and resilience.
The more crimp, the less tight the fibers can pack. Under a windproof shell, it means more insulation. As a stand-alone layer, it means more ability for much needed air to flush through the fabric. Simply put, textured fibers like those found in ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH COUNTRY MERINO™ mean better thermal regulation!
