Looking for sunshine

I found this top while looking for some new wool pieces to add to my outdoor/active wardrobe. My main activities are hiking, biking, running, and paddleboarding, and it's always a treat to find women's clothing that can keep up.

Pros: I absolutely love the color! I got the one in yellow for high visibility and got compliments the first day I wore it out. The fabric is comfortable to wear and temperature regulates as I expect wool to do. I took it out for a run on a fairly warm day and was not overheated. The sleeve length is excellent so the backs of my hands are protected. The hood collar wraps just so with a slight brim for shade, and I also love the droptail for a little bum coverage!

Cons: The overall fit is a smidge snug, a slightly closer fit than my other wool-based running tops. I would still call the garment true to size. The thumb holes don't quite line up with my thumbs, but seem a bit closer to the backs of my hands. However, the most concerning point for me is that I found a small hole in the garment after a single use, located in the back neck area of the hood. I am disappointed to find a hole right away, especially in such an odd area. I would expect that a garment at this price point would be of higher quality. I'll find a way to mend the hole so I can keep using the shirt, but I don't think I would purchase another of these tops.

Light and soft

I haven’t worn this yet but it fits well and feels good. I will put it to the test next month on a three week backpacking trip. I hope it holds up better than the other Merino shirts from other brands that I own.

4mo review.

Soft, light, breathes well, fair UPF.... *BUT* hands down the least durable article of clothing I've ever owned. It's literally falling apart at the seams, has over a dozen small holes, and the thumb loops both tore. I wash by hand only (when stinky) and line dry; And use it climbing and hiking in the high desert. The fit is loose which is nice for airflow. Bit of bummer such an expensive article had such a short life. (I've been repairing it as it goes... but at 4mo of wear and $95 price tag... it's sisyphean task.)

This is not an issue we've heard - It undoubtably needs to be reviewed by the manufacturing team to see why it's failing you unlike others. Please contact us at and we'll get it taken care of.

Love My Hoodie!

Made well, wore on two cold weather 4 & 6 mile climbs and no odor. Warm enough under my Wuru full zip jacket (which i love too!) Great sum protection when weather warmed up.

Exceeds expectations!

True to size, comfortable, and stink free. What more could a person want?
