Speaking from firsthand experience, this is the kind of garment you’d throw on for a brisk ride downtown on your single-speed commuter. A truly ass-kicking sweater that's as beautiful as it is tough. The durability of the worsted merino wool is a result of its pill resistant fiber and processing method that makes it both quick wicking and breathable. And a good reminder that nature typically gets it better than our very best synthetic intentions. The silhouette is perfectly formed for a “fitted” and movement-encouraging shape with 2x1 rib knit structure. The 3-slot back pocket is ergonomically built into the garment and handy for granola bars or a windbreaker. Longer fitted sleeves with bound jersey cycling thumbholes (of course) and a drop tail shape all enhance utility and its iconic style. This is a sweater you’ll use in so many way and in so many conditions, a true Relwen favorite.
