The MerinoFusion Switch Hoodie. From the office to the Antarctic.

We started with a material that can work anywhere on Earth.
To build a hoodie that can work anywhere on Earth you need to start with an exceptional material. We build our fabric from scratch in Australia, knitting two of the softest substances in the world together to build a new material. The synthesis of ultra-fine Australian Merino and super-fine polypropylene. Together they create a single material that will keep you warm and dry in the coldest of climates and stretch with you in any direction. MerinoFusion can be worn anywhere for almost anything. Which means the MeFu Switch Hoodie adapts to life in the city as easily as it thrives in the mountains. Lightweight and breathable, you can wear it with the hood and collar down like a regular lightweight hoodie. But you’ll know you can still be ready for somewhere a little more hostile in a second.

 

The hood and collar can be worn in 4 ways
The MeFu Switch Hoodie is engineered to work in the same way as the super fine Merino it’s made from – it lets you adapt at high speed to your surroundings. Whether you’re in the mountains, the desert, or the city, there are times when you’ll need to protect your face and head from the heat, the cold and the weather. So we built an integrated hood and collar that can be worn in four configurations and be switched rapidly from one to the other. The collar and hood are built so that they can operate entirely independently – this means you can wear them both up, both down, or just one up. On the slopes or in the mountains you’ll probably want the full balaclava effect, with both the hood and collar up. Together they’ll just leave your eyes exposed and enough space for goggles.

 

MerinoFusion keeps you warm in the cold
Staying warm is all about trapping as many pockets of air next to your body as possible and that’s what MerinoFusion is built for. Every Merino fibre is hollow which means you’ll automatically have millions of air pockets trapped next to your skin. And as the natural curl of wool fibres traps more air than straight fibres, the microscopic texture of the MerinoFusion fabric itself will also retain heat.

The hoodie’s engineering comes into its own in cold terrain. It’s so soft, stretchy and high wicking that you can wear it as your first layer to prevent the build-up of sweat that can rapidly chill you. It can also be worn as part of a layering system under your jacket on the slopes. Or if you’re looking to go fast and light, you can wear it on its own. The hood and collar will work together like a balaclava to keep you warm when the weather changes.

 

Fast drying and insulating even when wet
The outside of every Merino fibre is covered in a natural wax coating which makes it water repellent when you’re outside. At the same time the fused Merino and Polypropylene act like a sponge to soak up sweat and spread it over a massive surface area so that it evaporates at high speed. And as Merino can absorb over 30% of its own weight in water you’ll stay warm and insulated.

 

There’s almost nothing it can’t cope with
Both the Merino and the Polypropylene fibres are highly elastic which means the MeFu Switch Hoodie will stretch with you whatever you’re doing. It can also be pulled with a lot of sudden force without breaking and still return to its original shape. As it is lightweight and breathable you’ll find there’s almost nothing you can’t use the hoodie for throughout the year – from snowboarding and skiing to running and climbing. It holds its warmth and dries quickly.

BUST: Measure the circumference of your chest. Place one end of the tape measure at the fullest part of your bust, wrap it around (under your armpits, around your shoulder blades, and back to the front) to get the measurement.

WAIST: Measure the circumference of your waist. Use the tape to circle your waist (sort of like a belt would) at your natural waistline, which is located above your belly button and below your rib cage. (If you bend to the side, the crease that forms is your natural waistline.)

HIP: Measure the circumference of your hips. Start at one hip and wrap the tape measure around your rear, around the other hip, and back to where you started. Make sure the tape is over the largest part of your hips.

INSIDE LEG: This is the distance from the uppermost inner part of your thigh to the bottom of your ankle. If you have a pair of pants that fit you perfectly, measure the inseam of the pants, again from the crotch to the hem.

Athletic Fit

More of a “tailored” fit that is tighter across the middle and shoulder sections in tops and tighter across the backside, upper thigh and lower leg sections in leggings.

Slim Fit

A snug, close-to-the body fit for low bulk, layering. Clothing in this style don’t have extra fabric hanging or draping anywhere.

Regular Fit

Neither snug, nor loose, these garments are worn solo or over other layers. Regular fit clothing tends to fit most body types comfortably and have a little extra fabric than slim fit.

Relaxed Fit

Relaxed refers to a fit that’s looser than regular, but not baggy. Typically, relaxed clothing provide a comfortable, looser fit.

Summary for Womens MerinoFusion 190 Switch Hoodie
Average Score: 5 (1 ratings)
5/5
I love this hoodie. It looks and feels great,

I love this hoodie. It looks and feels great, is highly functional (breathable and warm in wet), is reasonably resistant to piling which often happens to mid layers, and the built in face gaiter is genius. I also really like the aesthetic of the slightly bunched neck (caused by the gaiter scoop) when the hood is down. The hood itself is generously sized and well fitted so it wraps properly around your head – most hoods without drawstrings don’t achieve this kind of close fit and either end up with an ugly pointed bit at the top, or sit back behind your hairline and aren’t particularly useful. This (and the Glacier Pullo) became my go-to clothing items for casual use as outers/under a vest, and under a shell for more serious outdoor use, this winter. I found the sleeves and hem to be a little longer than necessary – this didn’t bother me, but I’d be interested to hear what ladies wearing larger sizes report on the sleeve/hem length. I do have a particularly short torso, so this may be partially responsible.
