Get Smart: The Efficiency of SmartWool
In my case, in the environment that I reside, it's difficult to find wool products that are both comfortable, soft to the touch, odor resistant, and natural. I love the look and feel of wool, however nowadays it's difficult to find a product that is versatile, eco-friendly, and high quality. This is what makes SmartWool unique.
The use of merino wool makes clothing products much softer to the touch and against your skin, which is why I love SmartWool. I want to ability to wear wool in Florida, and with the inconsistency of the weather, it’s always good to have a light fleece or jacket for those unpredictable days. I have a few must haves in the closet that I use on a weekly basis, those being the microweight tank that is perfect for layering and working out in the gym. The greatest aspect about this shirt, well to be honest, I can wear it with dressy pants or workout yoga pants and no one knows it’s outdoor apparel for sport.
Let’s not forget those super cool and colorful Saturnsphere socks that keep your feet dry, soft and comfy, and stylish at the same time. Every year for Christmas my sisters and I get a pair of these socks as a stocking stuffer and our tradition is to all wear them to dinner, and all day for that matter. However, I do tend to stray from tradition and wear them all year round when I work out and, when I run out of trouser socks to wear with my knee high boots, I put a pair on to keep my feet dry and cool.
Now, you have to keep in mind the reasons why you are purchasing SmartWool and how you will use the product when you receive it. If you’re a skier, and let’s face it, this company was founded by two ski instructors Peter and Patty Duke which was acquired by Timberland Company in 2005; this is one of the best companies to find products for your trips. In fact, I think I have purchased over 10 jackets in the last 4 years from them for Christmas and birthday presents. My mom loves the Foothills Full Zip Jacket, and she wears it almost year round up in the UP of Michigan.
The lightweight material, natural moisture wicking, and the odor-reducing, anti-microbial properties make this product unrivaled, providing extreme sports enthusiasts a great product, while still allowing sports enthusiasts and consumers the same kind of quality for everyday use.
The evolution of this product takes great care and requires the highest quality checks to ensure that you are getting the best piece of apparel. As a consumer, you can be rest assured that you are purchasing a product of high quality which has a much lower impact on the environment.
