Gear Review: Montbell Merino Wool Plus Light Hoodie

Review on Apr 19th, 2023

Sun hoodies are the latest outdoor item that works well on a practical level yet somehow becomes fashionable.

Go to places like Boulder, Moab, Bend, or other outdoor meccas, and you’ll see people sporting shirts that block the sun and look good off-trail.

If you pump out as much heat as I do, the piece works best for cool to cold weather. I also found the Montbell Merino Wool Plus Light Hoodie extremely comfortable. Now that spring is warming the temperature up a bit (finally!), as it turns to summer, I suspect I’ll return to my button-down polycotton shirts. But the Montbell hoodie will again be a “go-to” piece come fall. People who hike cooler may find it an effective piece in all four seasons.

This Merino hoodie is another well-constructed, sharp-looking, and effective piece of clothing that continues the Montbell tradition of function is beauty.

Merino Wool Plus Hoody Review: Lightweight warmth for high energy pursuits

Reviewed on Jan 6th, 2023

The Merion Wool Plus hoody is a simple, elegant, and extremely comfortable layer that is perfect for those who like to hike fast and build up a sweat, or just for those who tend to run a bit on the hot side yet need a lightweight insulative layer for colder days. It pairs perfectly with lightweight layering systems (I pack a synthetic base layer, a synthetic t-shirt, this hoody, and a down jacket for my peak bagging days, for example) and is light enough at 8 ounces to barely be felt in the pack, stashed away just in case it is ever needed. It’s warm, breezy, and feels right at home in just about every scenario, even hot summer months when I want a light layer, just in case. This just shows that a simple design and be an exceptional design with a huge range of uses, thus earning my highest possible rating.
