Winter might be coming a bit later nowadays, but when it does you still need to be prepared. Here at Outlier that means turning up some of our favorite items for the colder season; introducing the Supermoon Soft Core Vest and Woolback FreeShell.
How do you improve on a Soft Core classic? With the Supermoon Soft Core Vest we kept the critical core of superfine 18.9 micron merino wool and highly breathable Primaloft Infinity insulation and added a pair of incredible fabrics to the face. We started with a beautiful tweed wool from England's Abraham Moon mill and then pieced in our Italian yarn-dyed Supermarine Cotton for additional water resistance and protection at key points. The result is the best insulated vest we've ever made.
Last year we introduced the Woolback fabric with our Woolback OGs. A Schoeller four-way stretch woven with a tough nylon exterior and lush brushed merino interior. It's highly breathable with an amazing freedom of movement, but also warm and rugged with a solid water resistance for when the weather turns on you. We decided it was a natural fit for our FreeShell body and sewed up a handful. The resulting Woolback FreeShell is even better than expected. Perfect on its own in cool weather, the merino keeps you dry and warm without overheating even as you push yourself. When the temperature drops it's a killer layering piece, adding a decent water and wind resistance on top of your insulation.
