Ponte de Roma is the name of a double knitting technique that consists of two layers of fabric knitted together. Ponte fabric is tightly knitted, making it very durable. It's stretchy, soft, doesn't wrinkle, and has a naturally flattering drape, which lets these mid-layers crossover perfectly from the outdoors to the office, and everything in between.
Why Merino Wool?
MACHINE WASH AND DRY
Total Easy Care (TEC) Merino apparel is designed for today's busy lifestyle. Total Easy Care Merino garments are all machine-washable, and are suitable for tumble drying.
Even after frequent laundering they retain an 'as new' appearance. They won't shrink, lose their shape, fade or color-bleed. They remain soft and comfortable for the life of the garment.
We have traveled to places like South Dakota-35Fwind shield factor -53F, Alaska- Yakutat , Canada - Victoria Island Russia Moskow, and I found myself warm but sweating and very uncomfortable with bulky layers sometimes. Our next adventure will be Finland's Lapland above the arctic circle Jan 2024, I am normaly a cold person so keeping warm is my first Priority- ( originally from Pretoria, South Africa, not ised to the cold but I love it!! . Since I haven't worn it out yet, I hope to return to update this review later . I wore my baselayer for a day after I washed it, and it washed well.
It was very comfortable,could move around easily and don't feel restricted or heavy or even to bulky. Its EXTREMELY SOFT- no more scratchy baselayers. Will travel with it to Apalacian Mountains the end of the year hopefully it will be nice and cold so I can give it a pretest. I bought my husband and daughter some too, because it is so soft and comfortable.

i don't care for the update to the thumbholes, very uncomfortable. what happened to the original ones??
Thank you for your feedback! We apologize for the inconvenience. The original thumbholes were replaced with a more comfortable design as part of our regular updates to the product.
Nice fit, fabric weight and jacket style. Wear it often for hiking, either under a shell as an insulating layer or just over a base layer.
Thank you for the kind words! We're happy to hear that you like the jacket style and fit, and that it works well as an insulating layer or just over a base layer for you. We think that the navy blue color is especially beautiful!
This jacket is perfect in every way. Please please please make this in blaze orange.
We women like to be easily distinguished from deer too!
