With a new and improved fit, the Chaser is the latest incarnation of the much loved and best-selling Colby. Made with Enigma265, it’s almost double the thickness of the original Colby and offers a whole lot of warmth. It’s the perfect base or mid layer performance hoodie and offers all the natural MicroMerino® performance you’ve come to expect from our garments. This one has a super soft next to skin feel so can be worn on its own or as part of a layering system when the weather hits hard and you need some extra layers.

The new Chaser Hoodie has been designed to be versatile enough to wear as a stand-alone layer when it’s not super freezing or if you’ll be generating your own body heat on the go, worn over a fitted Tee or Tank, or worn under your weather/snow proof layers if you’re hitting the slopes or tackling a serious trek or climb. And while you can wear it as is, that sleek, fitted hood has been specifically designed to fit comfortably under a helmet and will give your head maximum protection from the elements so no cold air or snow can sneak in and freeze your neck or ears.

Some hoodies are all show, no go, but not this one. Pop the hood off and you’ve got an outstanding, warm and comfortable Merino layer, but zip up and hood on, and you’re ready for whatever Mother Nature can throw at you.

Made with our exclusive MicroMerino® ‘Enigma265’ fabric - 96% superfine Australian Merino and 4% Elastane - it has an easy four way stretch and gives you complete freedom of movement even with a contact fit. Enigma265 is almost double the thickness of the original Colby to create more warmth, but still remains incredibly lightweight and breathable.  

With technical features including thumb loops to ensure easy layering, flat lock seams and a zip ‘cover’ so the toggle won’t rub against your skin, the Chaser Hoodie remains chafe resistant and will help keep you warm, comfortable and protected from the elements on just about any adventure.

Enigma 265

Things just got a whole lot warmer with our new Enigma265 fabric. Based on our flagship Enigma MicroMerino® fabric, Enigma265 is thicker and warmer than ever, but every bit as soft and comfortable.

As its name suggests, Engima265 is 265gsm, so delivers an extra level of warmth along with all the benefits of our regular 160gsm Enigma. In addition to natural temperature regulation, breathability, moisture wicking and odor resistance, Enigma265 is also more opaque - which makes it the perfect choice for warmer, more modest leggings that can be worn on their own without the need for an outer layer or ‘courtesy shorts’.

The 96% pure Australian superfine Merino provides a luxurious next to skin feel, while the 4% Elastane gives you a full four way stretch for complete freedom of movement.

Perhaps, most importantly, Enigma265 delivers all that extra warmth and comfort without the bulk of other fabrics that offer similar levels of warmth. This helps prevent bunching, chaffing and rubbing when it’s on, and keeps things light and easy to pack when you’re on the go. 

Benefits of the ioMerino ‘Enigma265’ fabric:

  • Moisture wicking/temperature regulation
  • Odor resistant
  • Breathable and lightweight
  • Quick drying
  • Full-coverage
  • Bulk free
  • Maximum warmth, minimal weight

What you need to know:

  • 96% pure Australian Merino, 4% Elastane
  • Weight – 265 gsm
  • 18.5 micron
