This year I skied Jackson Hole and hiked Moab in Voormi merino, and I’m ready for more.
More exciting than being able to build entire outfits out of merino (that post is coming) however, is what companies like Voormi are doing with merino hybrid garments.
It’s one thing to stay warm, and easy to be sweat-soaked while skiing. My moisture was fully wicked while on the slopes wearing the above Voormi gear, an Unbound merino tee (coverage coming soon), and ski pants, and I overheat very easily.
Standing still to take photos for extended periods of time at 10,000 feet is a different story, but that same load out kept temperatures regulated out in the elements and inside in the crowded, toasty, must-do waffle hut.

Voormi isn’t just for winter weather. I rafted down and jumped in the Colorado in their River Run Hoodie, and braved some of the disgusting NYC summer in their newly-released Tech Tee. Both are shockingly light, quick drying, and amazingly breathable. The hoodie presents an opportunity to wear a hood and long sleeves for sun protection without the threat of overheating.
Those are far from the only Voormi pieces we’ve put to the test, but they demonstrate that the company has a merino offering for every activity. Plus, merino is far more re-wearable than other fabrics, allowing you to pack that much lighter.
