High-Performance Comfort: The Smartwool Intraknit Collection

Intraknit, Smartwool. High-Performance Comfort: The Smartwool Intraknit Collection

Smartwool is the first name you think of when you hear merino wool. For decades they’ve been making their socks and apparel using the softest and most versatile natural fabric available. No fabric available has the next-to-skin softness of merino wool, and very few can match it for performance.

This natural fibre is renewable and capable of adapting to your needs. The moisture-wicking fabric transports sweat away from the body to the surface dries quickly. Merino benefits from layering, so a base and mid-layer will work well together to keep your body temperature regulated. It also works well to keep you odour-free during the most rigorous workouts. 

The Evolved Performance of Intraknit

We recently headed out to Roger’s Pass to test out Smartwool’s newest base layers. The Smartwool Intraknit collection takes all the benefits of merino and combines it with new technologies to create their highest-performing apparel to date. The apparel is 3D-knit for exceptional fit with gender-specific ventilation and insulation.

This new design provides added circulation in areas that need it most while providing a full range of motion. It provides plenty of warmth without adding bulk, and plenty of breathability. 

Merino 250

Merino 250 is the best-selling base layer on the market for a reason. It’s the thickest merino available and perfect for wearing during cold weather activities. These products are 100% merino wool, and 100% ready to perform.

Combine the Intraknit Merino 250 Thermal 1/4 Zip with the Intraknit Merino Thermal Bottom and you’ll understand why merino is the preferred choice for stormy adventures through the backcountry.

Merino 200

Merino 200 is the lightweight version of the 250 and a go-to for those seeking versatility. Since it’s not as heavy, it can be worn on its own or as part of a layering system. Products in this range are made from a combination of merino and polyester for performance with added durability.

Wear the Intraknit Merino 200 Crew on its own or as a sweater, and throw on the Intraknit Merino 200 Bottom under your jeans for added warmth on the cold city streets.
