BECAUSE wool has a greater capacity than any other fiber to store moisture vapor, 35% to 5% for polyester the buffering effect is much greater. Ramtect® insulation made from merino wool is unique among apparel fibers in its ability to exert control over the humidity of the air around it. Easily absorbing water vapor, Ramtect® moisture buffering counteracts the buildup of clammy, humid conditions. WOOL has a highly complex structure. It has many more binding sites than simpler synthetic (polyester) polymers and is thus the most hygroscopic of all insulations fibers.

Our Customer Say
Earlier this summer I bought a Switchback Jacket. I was in a rush, needed a jacket, it fit so I bought it. This is a purchase I don't regret. It's kept me dry and comfortable all summer long. Great price,great value. Thanks Spirit West!
Avid Sea Kayaker
I went on a kayak trip in early September, 2022 and needed to upgrade some of my gear. I replaced my old rain gear with custom fit Spirit West SwitchBack jacket and pants. The fabric seems to be very similar to my Arcteryx coat but it's much quieter. The hood worked perfectly and was stiff enough that I didn't need a baseball cap. We had a several days of wind and rain and the coat and pants worked flawlessly. It's so comfortable that I'll be able to wear it around town too.
