Praetorian Hoodie

With a streamlined fit and four way stretch, the Praetorian moves with dad. It provides moderate thermal protection and is designed for easy layering, giving you true four season performance. The thumb holes make it easy to add and remove layers while providing you an extra measure of warmth when dad needs it. Reinforced elbows will extend its wear despite rigorous use.

For those engaged in extended travel, outdoor exploration or operations in the field, you need to rely on gear that puts few demands on you. Merino wool has a high warmth-to-weight ratio, making it packable and unobtrusive when moving light and fast. It also does not retain odors, giving you more uses between laundering than other fabrics. Unlike synthetics which can trap odor despite washing, Merino readily sheds odor when laundered.
