New 2-in-1 Merino Hi-Loft Reversible Jacket and Vest Harness the Power of USA-Sourced Merino Insulation and Military-Grade Ripstop Nylon

WHITEFISH, Mont. – November 13, 2023 /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – FORLOH (https://forloh.com) – FORLOH, the premium 100% USA-made technical outdoor brand, is excited to introduce its latest groundbreaking innovation: the Merino Hi-Loft Reversible Jacket and Vest. Utilizing spread by-hand Merino Hi-Loft wool into its insulation, both jacket and vest are crafted with care, resulting in a staple piece that will withstand the test of time. 100% made in the USA, this release reflects FORLOH’s ongoing commitment to pushing the boundaries of technical innovation while steadfastly upholding American-made quality and craftsmanship.

Effortlessly transitioning from urban streets to rugged mountain tops, the 2-in-1 Reversible Merino High-Loft Jacket and Vest exemplify versatility. Engineered as a multi-use jacket and vest, each side serves a distinct function. Combined together, they forge an unparalleled performance. One side boasts the resilience of military-grade Quantum™ 40D Ripstop nylon, offering an impenetrable defense against rain, wind, and brush on rough terrain. On the flip side, cruelty-free merino wool sourced from the US provides unmatched comfort and exceptional thermoregulation while combating odor-causing bacteria.

The combination of hi-loft wool insulation and a merino wool liner enhances the jacket and vest’s performance over their lifespan. Wool fibers offer innate advantages, including body temperature regulation, efficient moisture dispersion in vapor form, and the elimination of odors. These inherent technological advantages endure over time without relying on chemical treatments, ensuring their sustained effectiveness.

Both the vest and jacket showcase strategically placed chest pockets, paired with dual hand pockets and YKK zippers. The merino side features a heritage diamond quilt pattern design, a nod to tradition. Aligning with FORLOH’s unwavering ethos, the Merino Hi-Loft Reversible Jacket and Vest are proudly 100% sourced and handcrafted within the United States, directing the full proceeds towards bolstering American ingenuity, quality, and craftsmanship.

The new Merino Hi-Loft Jacket and Vest will retail at $399 and $329 respectively, and are available in Men’s sizing at https://forloh.com as well as FORLOH’s flagship retail locations in Whitefish, Mont. and Austin, Tex.
