Patagonia Merino Air Hoody

Patagonia has really stepped up its wool line with the Merino Air. The Merino Air Hoody combines Patagonia Merino Wool with a recycled polyester Capilene to harness the powers of wicking, durability and performance. The Hoody has a noticeably Airy feel, thanks to the lofty construction, but is perfect for those chilly fall runs. Besides the immaculate construction, the Merino Air Hoody has a high collar and ninja like hoody. The seamless construction was soft, flexible and very durable. The baclava like feel of the hoody, gave our testers the impression that the this hoody would be a go to for the winter months. However, our testers would recommend another layer to block those frigid winter winds. (Don’t worry, we will have this upcoming review for you also.)
