The Quick Wick
We love Merino year-round, but especially in shoulder season when temperature and conditions often change quickly over the course of a run. Our lightest cold-weather running cap is delivered in the same Merino wool as our best-selling Harrier tops, offering a warm and wicking option for shoulder season running that is easily stored in a pocket as things heat up. For added protection, the eco-dry finish on the Thaw beanie repels water and mess.
In Vermont, they say there are five seasons: spring, summer, fall, winter and mud – when thawing snowmelt turns dirt roads and trails into a soggy mess. While it may not have achieved “season status” everywhere, that wet, mushy period between deep winter and early spring is a fact of life for many runners. We spend it leaping over slush puddles in old trainers that we don’t mind getting dirty. It’s the physical in-between. It’s the thaw. Inspired by this gloriously messy season, we updated our training staples to handle some serious splashes.
