ACRE: Merino Faroe Pullover Hoodie
Photo-by-Simon-Nieborak

I can’t go on any trip without taking this hoodie, especially when touring or camping. The Faroe is my favorite Mission Workshop / Acre apparel piece and for good reason:

“The Faroe is an essential piece of the ACRE apparel system. Constructed using soft, lightweight Merino wool that can be worn as a next-to-skin base layer or as a simple hooded pullover. Merino wool naturally regulates body temperature in both hot and cold environments, resists odor, and stretches with your body. The Faroe is designed to perform over a wide range of temperatures and conditions and makes the perfect layering piece under any of our waterproof breathable jackets.

This edition of the Faroe is made with 18.9 micron 190g/sm Merino wool with added core filament nylon for strength and durability.

Made in USA.”

Showers Pass: Body Mapped Baselayers for Men and Women
Showers_Pass_Baselayer

Merino wool by itself is one of the best materials for cycling, year round. Add modal, nylon and spandex to it and suddenly you’ve got a form fitting, durable and stretchy garment. Perfect for a base layer.

The Showers Pass Body-Mapped Baselayer is first and foremost that: a baselayer that stretches to your body’s contours. Yet add it to the Showers Pass jacket line and you’ll find the ventilation areas match up, allowing excess heat in areas where you sweat to be released, keeping your winter rides more comfortable. At least in your torso.

Café du Cycliste’s Fall and Winter Collection
6

Fall is my favorite riding season, particularly because of the apparel offerings and layering options. There’s nothing like climbing for hours, stripping layers to descend in the brisk, chilly air wearing a favorite jacket.

With each year’s season change come new offerings from brands, one of which I’ve been really enjoying is Café du Cycliste. They just launched their fall / winter 2014 lookbook and it’s looking great.

See the 2014 Fall / Winter Lookbook at Café du Cycliste and their entire line at their web shop.

Chrome is Ready for Fall
ww_ls1

Like it or not, fall is here and apparel companies everywhere are “launching” their autumn lineup. The hues for the year are orange, greys and browns. Not much has changed in the outerwear industry, in terms of these colors, but one thing’s for sure, cycling companies have bitten the bullet and begun to match their offerings with classic silhouettes, reminiscent of yesteryear’s garments. Personally, I’m into it. Especially with all these urban hobos riding around on this website.

Check out the newest offerings from Chrome below!
