Duckworth's Vapor Wool Fabric isn't a full-on cold weather solution. It's more like the best shoulder season Fabric we've ever worn. Fall and spring sunrise breakfasts at the campsite that roll right into a misty trail ride, or hiking back with a trail crew under headlamps and packs. The Vapor Hoody is like a superhero suit that never comes off. The funk factor is very low on this stuff; it saw the washer a couple times over a few months … mostly to deal with a the aftermath of a terrible toothpaste accident. It packs down to nothing, too, if you decide to take it off. The material hugs in the right places to move sweat vapor, but is so light that if barely feels like wearing a long-sleeve T-shirt, much less one made of a wool blend.

Pros:
– Wicks and breathes so well you can leave it on all day in the spring and fall
– We used the hood more than we thought we would
– Thin enough to wear as a second base layer on very cold days

Cons:
– Not suitable for deep winter wear
– Must be washed gentle and hung dry
– You'll cry when it wears out
– Not toothpaste resistant
