Praetorian Guards were chosen by the Roman Empire for their skill, courage, and bravery and rewarded handsomely for their service. Inspired by the history of these elite servicemen, we designed our Praetorian Hoodie for adaptable leaders that step into roles of responsibility without hesitation. These heroes demand gear that performs effortlessly through a range of environments and rewards them with the luxury and refinement reserved only for the elite.
Our Praetorian’s 100% Merino wool looks and feels as refined as it is capable. Due to Merino’s high warmth-to-weight ratio, you can be assured of moving light and fast through any course without intrusion or limits from your clothing.
With a streamlined fit and the natural stretch of a knitted garment, the Praetorian mirrors your agility and moves with you. It provides moderate thermal protection and is designed for easy layering, offering true four season performance. Thumbholes make it easy to add and remove layers while providing you an extra measure of warmth when needed. Reinforced elbows will extend its wear despite rigorous use.
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.
