Story
An experimental heavyweight and zero compromise hoodie. Made from a custom developed high density cotton-faced, merino-backed fabric with tons of structure and all the performance of merino on the inside.
Fabric
Hard/co Merino Terryback
A heavyweight and nearly armorlike sweatshirt fabric with all the performance of merino inside. A high density cotton knit on the outside gives this fabric serious structure, toughness and weight. The structure means hoods hold there shape while the garment almost floats off the body, supported by itself as much as the person inside. The density gives it a nice wind resistance (but not proofness), making for hoodies that feel halfway to proper jackets. And the weight, well yeah you feel it when you pick it up, it’s not for everyone, but it sure feels real.

Meanwhile on the inside the loose terry loops of merino mean it’s secretly soft against the skin and has all the capabilities you’d expect from nature’s finest performance fiber. The merino sucks moisture from around the wearer creating a dry body climate. It naturally thermoregulates as well stay comfortable in wider temperature range than most other materials, all while staying naturally odor resistant for longer wear times.

You can sort of think of the Hard/co as the roughneck cousin to our Merino Co/weight Terryback. Both use a similar merino terry on the inside, but the Hard/co has dramatically more cotton in the exact same space creating a far denser and tougher fabric while staying comfortable and easy to wear.
