Patriot Blue / Charcoal

There are hoodies, and then there’s the new, improved Summit Merino Wool Hoodie. What’s the big deal? Funny you should ask. For starters, it’s not just Merino by name, but 100% merino by nature. No blends, no synthetics, no compromises, no shortcuts. Just the real deal.

At 280 weight, it’s still light enough to pack and wear comfortably, but delivers a serious amount of warmth. But because it’s all Merino, it’s naturally breathable so helps keep you comfortable for longer. 

The Men’s Summit Hoodie has an updated, new and improved fit, and is made with premium MicroMerino® 280gsm fleece fabric that we like to call nature’s super soft alternative to synthetic fleece. It has a super soft, fluffy fleecy interior with a smooth, durable outer to trap warmth and keep you comfortable even in extreme conditions, while still being light enough to pack and wear comfortably. Flatlock seams reduce bulk and chafe, and the full zip, finishing in a high collar, add some extra protection against the elements.

Fits true to size. 

Model wears size medium in port royale. 

Model is 5' 8"and wears size medium in charcoal & black. Model specs - height 181cm, chest 103cm, waist 32inch.

I basically haven’t taken off this hoodie in the 2 weeks since I’ve received it. Incredibly warm and soft. I got a small and it fits true to size. Size up if you like a baggier fit. This hoodie is great!

Didn't expect it to be *this* good...

Originally bought this as I needed something to wear around home during winter.... when it arrived, it looked and felt *way* better than I had imagined, and it ended up being "too good" for me to just wear around home. So now I only wear out. The only problem I have is that now I have to find something else to wear as a beater for around the home :)

Highly recommend it, this is an amazing piece of clothing any way you look at it - material, cut, style, and workmanship.

Fabulous hoodie and amazing service!

I’ve been after a good hoodie for a while and had my eye on this. I bit the bullet on Monday, called up, got great service over the phone and when I got home from work today it had arrived! The hoodie itself is feels so soft, fits great and the quality is amazing. Now considering buying a different color! Thanks IO!

Very impressive. A warm, densely constructed classic hoodie. And best of all, it's made of merino!

I'm very pleased with this black hoodie, which I've had for about a week and a half now.

First off, it's surprisingly substantial and densely woven for a merino garment. Because of this, the hoodie provides above average wind resistance - and hence warmth - when used as an outer layer compared to other merino hoodies I've owned (Icebreaker Quantum, Chrome Cobra V1).

I also appreciate the non-technical, classic styling. There's nothing wrong with a more tailored, athletic, technical looking hoodie, but the majority of merino hoodies on offer in the market fit that description, so it's welcome that IO Meriono offers us an option with a more casual look.

Again, I can't praise enough the density of the weave of the fabric used for this hoodie.

The only drawback - which is quite minor - is that due to the thickness and strength of the fabric and stitching around the cuffs, I'm unable to pull the sleeves back to my forearms. But that's okay, I'll gladly trade that feature for a garment of this warmth and exceedingly high quality.

Thank goodness the sharp-looking black version doesn't come with the tacky front-and-back silkscreen branding (sorry, IO Merino, it's not personal - I don't enjoy feeling like a billboard for any of the clothing I buy). The white silkscreen lettering on one side of my black hoodie is more than enough branding for my liking.

Would certainly buy again. Overall, nice job, io Merino!
