Showers Pass might be best known for their water proof gear, but they’re building quite the base and mid layer collection as well. The star of that line is their 50/50 Bamboo Merino Cool Tech fabric. With the two knit together, the bamboo on one side is soft to the touch and aides in moisture wicking, while the merino wool on the other side keeps you warm even when wet.
Adding to their current collection of Bamboo-Merino pieces is their new Trailhead hoodie which is available in both men’s and women’s. Both offer a slim fit with longer sleeves for proper bike fit, though there ares some differences in construction other than fit.
The men’s hoodie features a 1/2 length zipper and a drawcord closure for the hood.
The women’s on the other hand has no zipper and no drawcord. However, there is an additional zippered rear pocket.
Pricing and availability
Both versions include a kangaroo pocket up front with hidden zippers. Also, each hood is designed to fit under a helmet, and the fabric offers UPF 50+ sun protection for those cool, yet sunny days and a few reflective hits.
Men’s and women’s hoodies are available in Navy and Dark Shadow, while the women get an additional Hollyhock colorway, and all are available in S-XXL for $129 each. Available now.
