Blending modern lines with technical and natural technologies, the Echelon Sweater brings refinement and quiet capability to the classic raglan crew. A versatile and reliable companion for cool weather journeys both on and off the grid, Echelon is densely knit from CORDURA® Combat Wool™ yarn for long-wearing durability.
Echelon's milano knit body drapes well and minimizes printing, while subtle reverse bamboo knit detailing on the shoulders and upper arms modernizes the classic raglan silhouette.
CORDURA® Combat Wool™ combines the durability of nylon with the performance and comfort of Merino wool. By blending Merino wool yarns with CORDURA® nylon fibers, Combat Wool™ raises the standard for resiliency in natural wool garments.
Merino has a unique ability to regulate body temperature. During exertion or warm weather, it wicks away moisture from your body and releases it on the surface. This evaporation mechanism has a cooling effect, enhancing comfort while keeping you dry. To help you stay warm in cold weather, the air pockets in the Merino fibers trap body heat to provide insulation. This adaptive capability makes merino wool garments highly flexible, which is critical if you need to count on a small set of gear to handle unpredictable conditions. Merino is also naturally fire retardant and odor resistant, providing a measure of assurance when outdoors or in the field.
