Mons Royale

Approach Merino Gridlock Hood | Men's

Colour: Black

Active mid-layer for fast-paced adventures

The Approach range of mid-layers from Mons Royale are engineered for high-energy activities in alpine conditions. Think ski touring, mountain biking, trail running, or any other pursuit where you're riding yourself hard in frosty conditions. It's made in Merino Shift Fleece – a warm and breathable blended fabric with plenty of stretch for maximum movement. Merino mesh panelling and a full-length zip help vent heat, while the fitted three-piece hood moves with your head. The Approach hoodie is great on its own over a merino tee, with handwarmer pockets for when your digits get chilly. If you're using it as a mid-layer with something heavier over the top, they've deliberately sited the chest pocket higher than usual to make it easier to access through an outer shell.

    • Ethically Sourced Materials - Mons Royale partners with New Zealand’s ZQRX Merino, the world’s leading ethical wool brand.
    • Manufactured Sustainably - Mons Royale wool is spun at Süedwolle, a global leader for worsted spun yarn and certified with the latest eco certifications including Bluesign and Oeko-Tex standards.
    • Sustainable Packaging - Mons Royale have phased out 90% of virgin plastic from their hang tags and accessories, replacing them with recycled and natural alternatives. Their products are packaged in plant based compostable bags and FSC certified paper.
  • Flashy technical outerwear is all well and good, but the foundation for all-day comfort in the great outdoors is a solid baselayer. Unfortunately, most are tight-fitting and uninspired, made from flimsy fabrics that look like Swiss cheese after a week or two on the trail.

    Enter New Zealand-based brand, Mons Royale, born out of the Kiwi snow sports scene in the mountains above Lake Wanaka. Making merino base layers, jerseys and sweaters is what they do – and it really shows. 

    Just about everything in the Mons range is built around ethically and sustainably produced merino wool – a fibre with so many miracle properties that only Mother Nature could have come up with it. But it’s Mons Royale’s more relaxed approach to design that really makes them stand out. Constructed for comfort and flexibility, their base layers fit like your favourite T-shirt, rather than feeling as if they’ve been sprayed on.

    We love Mons Royale because it’s technical stuff that looks good enough to wear every day. The cuts are casual, the pastel colours are cool but muted, and the branding isn’t too full-on. Take your Mons kit out for a day on the mountain, then stick the bike or climbing gear back in the van, switch the shorts for a clean pair of jeans and you’re all set to go for a post-adventure beer.
