Merrell Women’s Ridgevent Hybrid Hoody

Perfect cold-weather insulation for everybody.

We know the dance that is winter hiking with a pack: Start off toasty, unzip, take off your gloves and, as a last resort, peel off your coat. So we studied the way different bodies regulate heat while hiking in order to build the Ridgevent™. Through heat-mapping, we learned that men and women retain heat differently and in different areas of the body, and we discovered that a considered balance of insulation and ventilation up and down the back could alleviate pack overheating and discomfort.
+ Engineered baffle construction around the spine works to give the perfect balance of insulation and ventilation, providing warmth where you need it and breathability when it matters.
+ Gender-specific heat-mapping shows that women’s bodies lose heat faster than men’s, so we increased the overall ratio of insulation to ventilation in women’s styles to minimise cold spots.
+ DownPlus+ insulation blends 65% responsibly sourced, waterproof goose down and 35% ultrafine Primaloft™ synthetic fibers for warmth even when wet.

+ Lightweight, tight-woven ripstop with a water-repellent (DWR) coating for superior strength and protection from the elements.


Available in jacket and vest styles for Men and Women.
