Is it hot? Is it cold? In Eastern Ontario, you never really know what to expect when you’re heading out the door in the spring. That’s where the Voormi River Run hoodie came in handy.
Fishing, hiking, camping, climbing, or hanging out, the River Run hoodie is designed for those who spend a lot of time outdoors — like me, outdoors for 2-3 hours a day doing everything from walking the dogs to playing disc golf or going for a run or hike with friends.
Thanks to advanced technology, it is one of the lightest full-cover Merino wool hoodies on the market and keeps both sun and sweat off your skin, so you’re protected and dry all day, every day. That means the River Run hoodie was fantastic for tossing in a bag for later — and that it added no weight to my pack if I took it off mid-hike.
I’m a big fan of technology in my clothing. Here’s what the Voormi line has, according to their description:
Dual Surface UL Precision Blended Wool
Weighing in at just under 100 grams per square meter (30 to 50 grams lighter than the leading ultra light merino fabrics currently on the market), Dual Surface UL Precision Blended Wool delivers an unprecedented level of warm-weather comfort and all-season performance in a sun-shielding, lightweight construction.
Phase.SC — Spatially constructed wool
Compared to a traditional ‘surface printed’ camo on shiny synthetic fabric, our wool based solution is uniquely coloured down to the yarn level, and constructed to change the game in low-light concealment.
At $129, the hoodie is a bit out of my traditional price range, but now that I’ve worn it I can’t imagine not having one. The light weight alone adds so much value to this apparel.
