The WoolPRO Scout
California Dreaming in the Wool Scout – Gear Review
Over the course of the past month, I have used the Scout on a nearly daily basis. I run multiple times a week and last week alone I ran a total of 15 miles while wearing the Scout. I have hiked numerous times as well as rode my mountain bike on the local trails while wearing my Scout. And to top it off, I wear my Scout on a regular basis while attending law school, and have yet to wash it even a single time. The scout has held up remarkably well. I think the thing that has impressed me the most is the fact that it still smells the same as the day I opened the box it came in.
I really love the Scout’s ability to keep me warm. The snug fit mixed with its stretching properties keep my body temperature at a comfortable level. On days when the weather is quite warm, I just lower the zipper and still find the Scout to be comfortable. I have noticed the ability of the Scout to keep me warm depends on whether or not I am wearing anything underneath the scout. If I am not wearing anything underneath, the effects are almost immediate. If I have a t-shirt underneath, then It could take a while to heat me up. Because of this, I prefer to wear only the Scout when running early in the morning.
I also love the construction of the seams. They have the ability to stretch wider depending on the size of the body part it surrounds which is quite amazing.
