Built For Adventure

At Ridge Merino we create simple, everyday apparel with the mettle to weather expeditions, insulate adventures and soften the daily grind. Our mid layers are no exception when it comes to technical apparel you can rely on. Whether you're climbing Mt Whitney or skiing the resort, our Merino mid layers will move with you.

Discover Merino Wool

Merino wool is natural, renewable and biodegradable. It insulates while wicking moisture away from the skin. It's also antimicrobial, so it repels odor and stays stink free. Merino is also buttery soft, because its fibers are very fine and don't have the scratchy feel many people associate with wool garments.

Polartec® Power Wool™

We added a little something extra to our more technical Merino wool mid layer, the Convict Canyon Hoodie: Polartec Power Wool. This bi-component knit fabric combines the best of both natural and synthetic fibers. The construction pairs a soft and odor-reducing Merino wool in an open grid pattern with a lightweight polyester exterior that is durable and quick-drying. This strengthens performance by increasing warmth and breathability, while reducing fabric mass.


We let our reviews speak for themselves.

"Tremendously good product. Fabric is outstanding: wide temperature range comfort, highly breathable, warm, does not stink after multiple sweaty workouts."

Convict Canyon Hoodie

"Looked over many merino wool hoodies from other vendors before choosing Ridge. I really like the heavier weight (275g/m2) and softness of this hoodie. The thumb holes for keeping the sleeves in place (if used for a base or mid layer) work well."

Hyde Full Zip Hoodie

"I know awesome is an over used word, but the Convict Canyon Hoodie cant be described without using the word awesome. I was reluctant to pay this much for a garment, but the value is there. Fit is perfect.Fabric is just the weight I was looking for. Very happy."

Convict canyon Hoodie

"I LOVE IT. I have had it for 2 years now and it has worn incredibly well - I have used it for everything: hiking, camping, the beach, and travel. I wear it to work, I wear it out casually, I wear it in winter, I wear it in summer, and I have never once had a moment of regret about it."
