The WoolPRO Scout
Gear Review: Wearing WoolPRO Wool
Heres some pictures from my recent travels. I spent time in New Hampshire on the ice this winter break. Woolpro wool was tested in temperatures down to -20 with windchill. We got 2ft of snow in one night while I was there!
The scout in a size S fits better as a baselayer for someone with a smaller waist. I’m 5″11, 160lbs and the medium fits comfortably but is a bit baggy and the small fits perfectly as a cold weather base layer. The higher collar is great for windy conditions and prevents cold air from hitting the neck. I did not notice any discomfort during the long days of ice climbing. I wore the Juno short sleeve with the quarter zip on top and a outer hard shell and that worked well down to -20 degrees in 60mph wind. I was comfortable and did not sweat or feel cold. I’m super happy with it overall and I think the only way it could really be made better would be to add a small chest pocket. Another great piece from Woolpro!
