Versatility

Versatility is a very big thing for us ... almost the main thing.  We want WeatherWool to be the clothing you want to wear ... after all, if you aren't wearing it, then it can't help you.

It's the unexpected that really causes trouble. If you KNOW you're going out in the cold, you'll dress for it. But what if a short hike on a pleasant day turns into a cold night out because of a busted foot? We hope that doesn't happen to you, but WeatherWool is comfortable in the warm and comfortable in the cold so that, if the unexpected happens, you'll be ready.

People expect to see WeatherWool out in the woods on a snowy day.  This page pictures WeatherWool in some surprising settings. If you have some surprising pictures, please send them! --- Thanks!

 Up Mountain Switchel and WeatherWool on Venice Beach
Garrett Riffle is one of the Founders of Up Mountain Switchel, an absolutely fantastic drink made with Ginger, Maple Syrup and Apple Cider Vinegar. Garrett sent us this picture mostly as a joke, I think, but it has become one of our very favorites. Garrett is wearing a ShirtJac and having fun on Venice Beach in California with some of the Switchel crew.

 WeatherWool Founder Ralph swimming in icy river
This is me demonstrating that WeatherWool will protect you if you somehow wind up getting thoroughly soaked in the winter ... so long as you get out of the water, anyway.  This swim made a good Youtube video.

WeatherWool merino Jacquard Fabric is worn by commercial divers on the Mississippi River ... before, after, and even during (under a drysuit) diving
Michael Freeman is a commercial Diver, working year-round on the Mississippi River. Conditions both above and in the water can be very difficult.  Michael uses both dry- and wetsuits. He wears the ShirtJac both before and after the dive. He has even worn the ShirtJac during diving, under his drysuit! There is more information on the Mississippi River page. I did not expect that, but I think other guys will be doing it too. We just got an inquiry about whether the wool would be suitable under the drysuits worn by Navy SEAL Fast Boat operators.

 Below is another beach picture.  This was taken on a cool, raw, rainy day in November on the Jersey Beach. I knew the weather would be no issue, but  when I saw this picture, I was surprised that I was kneeling in the wash to release this young striper. The water did not penetrate the MidWeight Pants.

Below is me again ... different day, same beach ... and barefoot ... fishing in steady, light rain, strong wind (15 knots / 28 kph) and cool temps ... both air and water at 55F/13C.  The surf was surging up to my thighs, and splashing above my waist, so chest waders would have been the normal choice, but they can be extremely dangerous ... and anyway, I always like to see what the wool can do. MidWeight Pants and FullWeight ShirtJac were fine in the surf and fine in the restaurant afterward.
