Details matter: We kept on grabbing this 100 percent wool hoody mostly for its snug-fitting hood with an integrated nose and mouth gaiter that kept our faces from freezing on nippy days. It was our main layer during a five-day trip in Slovenia’s Triglav National Park; despite the cold and wet weather, the gaiter never got grubby and stayed soft against our chin. And after eight months of testing while wearing a full pack, we haven’t noticed any pilling. Not too loose and not too tight, the Yotei easily slides over and under other layers, and the sleeves are long enough that the thumb loops didn’t cut off circulation.
