Staff Pick: Melanzana Micro Grid Hoodie
Despite being made of fleece, the Melanzana Micro Grid Hoodie succeeds as both a technical layer and as a lifestyle garment. Its secret? It’s incredibly well made — every hoodie is stitched by hand. Its no-frills design is also a winner. It has a technical hood and a big central pocket, all you need for most adventures. While polyester isn’t the most obvious choice for a technical layer, the hand-stitched fleece is incredibly comfortable and breathes like merino. I wear it backcountry skiing, running, and around town. It’s the perfect middle layer.
