NDO Wind-Block Downeaster
A wind-blocking Merino wool mid-layer for blustery winter days
Into the Wind
When the winter wind is whipping, our favorite layers need a little more reinforcement. That’s why we’ve crafted a headwind-ready version of our best-selling Downeaster, featuring wind-blocking overlays on the front, halfback and collar to protect against Mother Nature’s worst. The addition of the overlay makes this mid-layer perform like a jacket. Wear it over a base layer on brisk, freezing days and you’ll be ready to do battle in the headwind.
Wind-blocking overlay protects against the elements, while Downeaster fabric provides warmth and softness, with the wool blend against the skin.
Merino wool content makes this garment naturally thermoregulating, antibacterial & odor-resistant.
The stand collar can be worn up for protection or down for breathability thanks to the center-front zipper.

Do not use softeners
The Downeaster features a double knit blend of 60% Merino wool and 40% polypropylene. The natural properties of Merino offer warmth, breathability and odor-resistance, while polypropylene improves wicking and insulation. Not only does polypropylene have the lowest thermal conductivity of any fiber, which means it holds onto heat the longest, it’s also hydrophobic, quickly pulling moisture (i.e. sweat) to the surface where it can evaporate, rather than be absorbed into the Merino. The end result is a high-performance mid-layer that protects from biting winds.
