Bike layers are usually pretty much all the same thing polyester, Lycra, and synthetic fabrics. They work well enough, but synthetics will never match the natural softness, moisture management, and comfort of Merino wool. Kitsbow, understandably, wasn't satisfied with the state of things, so it designed the Merino Mountain Men's Hooded Sweater to add some class and comfort to your days on the trail. The Mountain has the standard features you expect in a bike layer, including a slim, stretchy fit and a back stow pocket, but it incorporates Merino's incredible moisture wicking, antimicrobial, and breathable qualities, so you'll never confuse it with a standard hoodie. It has other bike friendly features, too, like an extendable cuff for chilly mountain mornings, a paneled hood, and a high zip to keep the chill out when you're pedaling through early morning fog.
