About Smartwool

Smartwool uses Merino Wool to create performance clothing for men, women and children. Merino Wool has a positive effect on the environment, it breathes, breaks down naturally, helps regulate body temperature and has anti-odor properties.

Smartwool sells clothing that supports active people while also having a positive impact through environmental, social and economic sustainability. That’s a package deal! This Smartwool Clothing Review will provide an in-depth look at the brand and its products to guide your purchase decision. 

Smartwool Review 1
Smartwool Merino Wool

Overview of Smartwool

Smartwool was founded in 1994 by New England ski instructors Peter and Patty Duke in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The mission of Smartwool is to help people get outside and to protect the resources of the environment. They believe that making sustainable clothing is an essential contribution to leaving the beauty and resources of the environment for future generations. 

Smartwool Review 2

You might wonder how Smartwool makes their impact so conscientiously? Well, the evaluation of sustainable sourcing starts on the ground level with product development and supply chain. 

Smartwool is made up of high achievers with limitless standards and they want the best and most humane treatment for sheep and wool growers. Smartwool partners with farmers to encourage them to minimize their environmental impact. They also partner with advocacy organizations that share the same values. 

Smartwool Review 3

Smartwool takes the small things into consideration because they add up. Some ways they have capitalized on the impact of minor changes is to take garment scraps from their Merino 250 base layers, turning them into insulation for their Smartloft products. They also use recycled wool fibre in some of their fleece products, giving the environment a break without compromising performance. We learned in our Smartwool clothing review that sustainability is at the heart of all of their practices, which makes their processes meticulous and their product well-thought out. It’s a chain that impacts everyone positively. \

To sum up this Smartwool Clothing Review, we’ll take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of the brand: 

Pros

  • Merino wool is a natural fibre
  • Smartwool products regulate temperature
  • They have anti-odour properties
  • The products are breathable
  • They break down naturally
  • Smartwool has a positive impact on sustainability 
  • Garment options for many seasons and sports
  • Quality materials
  • Technical assets

Cons

  • Some customers said that the product was not as high quality as it was ten or more years ago

Smartwool Review 5
Smartwool Socks

What brings you to the slopes is passion but what keeps you there until 4 PM are good quality socks. These over the calf socks are made of Indestructawool technology which gives them added durability. Breathability is essential to the longevity of your ski boot, your comfort and temperature regulation. With Body-mapped mesh zones for added breathability and a virtually seamless toe for enhanced comfort, you’ll be able to focus on your turns, not your clothing. 

Smartwool Socks Men

Hunting and Fishing Socks

Smartwool Review 6

Long days on the trails are not a match for chafing, sweaty, or cold feet. The Men’s PhD Hunting Medium Crew Socks for $26.95 are an excellent fit for a Fall hunt. Merino wool has itch and stink-free benefits and these socks have body-mapped mesh zones for added breathability. You’ll be thankful they do when you put those toes into your new sleeping bag at night!

You can walk comfortably with the virtually seamless toe for enhanced comfort and the achilles strap provides extra protection and warmth on rocky trails or during crisp early mornings. The crew height fits with any boot height. 

Smartwool Base Layer Review

Smartwool Base Layer Mens

Men’s Merino 250 Base Layer ¼ Zip

The next-to skin comfort is complimented by a slim fit and flatlock seam construction designed to minimize chafing. You have flexibility to increase your breathability once the muscles warm up while hiking or skiing in colder conditions with the ¼ zip technology. 

Smartwool Review 7

Men’s Merino 250 Base Layer Bottom 

Are you looking for a slim fit and mid rise pant to equip you for comfort on the coldest days—the Merino 250 has got you covered for $100. You can slip out of your gear easily to join the crowd at Apres ski with the Merino-covered elastic waistband and traditional fly design. Sweat-wicking, warm and breathable, the 100% Merino wool material will have you spoiled on the chairlift. 

Smartwool Review 8

Smartwool Base Layer Womens

Women’s Merino 150 Base Layer Colorblock Short Sleeve 

The Merino 150 Base Layer is perfect for cycling or running in warmer weather and you can trust that your skin is protected with UPF 20+ that naturally protects against the sun’s rays. Next-to-skin comfort is essential to feeling your best when you workout; the lightweight, breathable soft fabric wicks sweat away from the body keeping your comfortable during high intensity exercise. This technical piece is also bright and fashionable with a slim fit and side seams that wrap onto the front for an enhanced fit for $80.  

Smartwool Review 9

Women’s Intraknit Merino 200 Bottom 

High performance is important but you can do without the bulk! Merino sport yarn combines the power of Merino with the durability and fast dry times of polyester. At the most intense part of your workout, you’ll be unaffected by overheating due to the mesh ventilation seamlessly knit into gender-specific zones. For $120, you can dress in deep marlin and sangria; you’ll be a glimmer of stylish colour in the distance as your trailmates try to keep up. 

Smartwool Review 10

Smartwool Review 12

Smartwool Gloves for Women

Merino Sport Fleece Training Glove

Training with cross-country ski poles that don’t have grip is miserable, blister inducing and all-too common. The Merino Sport Fleece Training Gloves make the difference for $45 with soft-brushed Merino next to skin and silicone grippers on the palm and fingers. Your hands will be warm, with the wind-resistant panels- regardless of what the weather brings and you will master that wrist flick in no time with silicon support. There’s one other feature which will attract all technical ski geeks—the gloves have reflective elements for visibility in low-light conditions. 

Smartwool Review 13

Smartwool Gloves for Men

Ridgeway Gloves

The Ridgeway Gloves are inspired by traditional work gloves and will complement any ski or boarding wear. The Smartwool liner gloves are available in buck or black for $80 the glove has exceptional durability for all your boldest mountain adventures.

Made of 100% leather with a lining constructed of 70% Merino wool and 30% nylon, the glove is optimal for Spring skiing. 

Smartwool Review 14

Smart Wool Jacket for Women

Women’s Merino Sport Ultra Light Hoodie

The problem of packing light but heavy duty layers has plagued outdoor lovers for eons. Smartwool has their answer in the Women’s Merino Sport Ultra Light hoodie, which is available for $130. The Super-light recycled nylon outer shell fabric has Smartwool’s DWR coating, the hoodie has wind and weather protection. Smartwool jackets have women’s-specific mesh ventilation zones which give you breathability and comfort. 

Smartwool Review 15

The Merino wool packs into the right hand pocket for easy storage, barely taking up any room at all! The hoodie has secure hand pockets with zippers and the main body is made of 100% recycled nylon. If you’re hiking late at night with the dog, don’t sweat it! The hoodie has reflectivity for visibility in low-light conditions. 

Smart Wool Jacket for Men

Men’s Smartloft 120 Jacket

The Men’s Smartloft 120 Jacket is available in eye-catching colours that will make you visible to your fellow hikers and runners for $200. You’ve heard the old saying ‘business in the front, party in the back;’ this jacket knows how to play two parts with breathability in the back and performance in the front. 

Smartwool Review 16

You can workout hard in this jacket; the insulation is lined in Merino for comfort, sweat management and odour control—so give it your all and have no regrets! The next to skin comfort will make you feel supported by comfortable, stretchy knit fabric. If you like to pack light but carry everything on your person, we won’t judge. The 2 zip hand pockets and 1 zip chest pocket with a media cord outlet, as well as two internal dump pockets make it easy to fit in well, everything. 

Smartwool Review 17

It’s always a good idea to pack for the unknown; slip a Smartwool balaclava and a Smartwool neck gaiter into your pack. On blustery days, the balaclava covers the parts of your face left exposed by the hat and gaiter. The Smartwool balaclava offers comfortable face protection with good peripheral vision for $40. The Merino 250 neck gaiter costs $30 and will keep your neck warm and dry with its 100% Merino wool construction.

You’ll have the relief of knowing that your child is in breathable, warm, sweat-wicking fabrics and it doesn’t hurt that those Merino socks are odor-resistant! 

Smartwool Review 18

Is Smartwool Clothing Good?

Our Smartwool clothing review emphasized that customers felt that Smartwool clothing defined comfort. They said that they were the best socks they owned. Some loved everything about Smartwool. Those who transitioned to Smartwool, for one reason or another, were wholly converted. Smartwool products kept wearers dry and warm. Some customers found the products pricey but they said that they were worth it for the material, durability and feel. 

As in every bunch, there were some negative reviews about Smartwool as well. Some individuals had travelled the world for ten or more years in their Smartwool socks and when they bought a new pair, it just wasn’t up to snuff. 

Smartwool Review 19

Despite the nay-sayers, Smartwool comes out on top as a quality brand that carefully sources their materials and develops technical, performance gear for outdoor lovers. Smartwool can accompany outdoor adventurers in all weather, helping them to comfortably meet their goals with products that take care of the details and the unknowns. While products are not inexpensive, they are well crafted and mindfully designed for athletic pursuits.

How to Wash Smartwool Socks & Clothing

Yes, you heard us, you can wear your merino wool socks for days without being put in the stinky category. If this seems impossible to you, stay with us: Merino wool fibres absorb odor-causing bacteria. Essentially this means that they don’t grow or reproduce in the sock, or shirt. The result—less cycles in the washing machine. 

It’s easy to wash merino wool socks. When you do wash, follow these simple steps to keep your clothes in good condition.

  1. Turn socks and garments inside out
  2. Don’t use hot water, it can shrink your garments. Machine wash in warm or cool water on the gentle cycle
  3. Use mild soap. Stay away from bleach or fabric softener which ruin the fibres of the Merino wool. 
  4. Air drying is the best and safest method, plus it has a good environmental impact. Lay your clothes flat, to keep their shape. 
  5. Jackets and vests which are (durable water repellent) will benefit from occasional cleaning to remove dirt and oil stains, however over-washing can reduce the efficacy of the DWR treatment.

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review

About Oliver Cabell Shoes

Oliver Cabell makes quality shoes crafted using the most ethical factories and materials at affordable prices. Made for men and women, Oliver Cabell blends art, craft and technology to deliver premium footwear constructed with passion. This Oliver Cabell shoes review will examine key elements of the brand and its products to assist you in making an informed purchase decision. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 24

Overview of Oliver Cabell Sneakers

We don’t want to call Scott Gabrielson an underdog but he was an unusual fit to become an entrepreneur in the fashion industry. At the time that Scott started Oliver Cabell in 2016, he had just moved to England. In his life before Cabell, he worked for a non-profit. The reason why he was one of the most unlikely suspects is that Scott had no experience in fashion, retail or start-ups.

He’s a real example of how an outsiders eye can be of benefit because he trusted his skill for assessing balanced design and quality products as he launched the premium footwear company that would challenge the way people see things. Reflectively, Scott’s ability to look at things from a different angle, a less accustomed angle, is the very skill that allows him to make direct-to-consumer footwear that challenges the status quo. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 25
Founder of Oliver Cabell

The direct-to-consumer approach is an important aspect of Oliver Cabell. It’s the foundation that allows the company to make their shoes with the same top quality material as leading brands but because the overhead is lower, the customer puts money back in their pocket. Oliver Cabell also succeeds as a popular brand because they combine old school techniques with innovations in technology. All this, without the markups. The mission of the company is to create “perfect, timeless footwear.” 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 26

Pros

  • Quality shoes crafted of materials from Spain, Italy, Germany and England
  • Direct-to-consumer footwear cuts costs
  • Combining old techniques with innovation
  • Variety of colours and styles in boots and sneakers
  • Kits and tools available to care for footwear

Cons

  • Some countries may experience duties
  • There have been reports of slow shipping
Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 27

Oliver Cabell Mens Shoes Review 

Let me guess, you like a good sneaker but you don’t just want to settle for an average pair. If you’re looking to stand apart from the crowd with a sneaker that’s just a little bit classier, a tiny bit more put together and slightly more polished, you’ll catch your stride with Oliver Cabell Mens shoes. Sneakers are available in a variety of colours including white, off white, jet black, navy, nude and well, you don’t want me to rhyme it off—go and check it out for yourself! From $95-$228, or off-the-beaten-path boots from $218-$288, you can find the shoe that vibes with your look and gives that extra special something to your Spring outfit.

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 28

In our Oliver Cabell shoe review, we will examine some best sellers including the Low 1 Sneaker, the Gat Sneaker, the SB1 Boot and the Wilson Boot. Don’t let your search stop there!

Low 1 Sneaker – White

If you thought it was an oxymoron to stand out when you’re plain, you haven’t come across the Oliver Cabell Low 1 White for $188. Hand stitched in the Marche region of Italy, you’ll treat yourself to luxurious side of basics with buttery Italian calfskin leather and the Margom outsoles of these iconic low-top silhouette hand crafted Oliver Cabell white sneakers. Yes, that’s a delightful mouthful! The footbed is Italian calfskin with molded in-soles and even the laces are made of Italian cotton. You’ll toss all the stranded keds lying around your front hallway. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 29

Gat Sneaker – White

Looking to upturn the standard for sneakers? Try the Oliver Cabell Gat for $193; it’s the athletic trainer destined to stop a cocktail party in its tracks. The retro German inspired shoe is made with luxury materials and a detailed process. You’ll know it too because it comes in a branded box with a cotton dust bag, so that you can walk through the slush in your rubbers and change into your pristine sneakers at the door. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 30

According to our Oliver Cabell review, the leather and Suede is sourced from Veneto, Italy and Spain. You still want to get things done while looking good, which is made possible by the durable Italian 70 Shore A rubber sole. In this shoe the details count and elements like the vegetable tanned leather lining or Italian waxed cotton laces make the difference. 

SB 1 Boot – Black Roughout

This top seller for men is where an old classic meets new and hip for $228. The classic lace up service boot is combined with an ankle boot pattern that is sure to find its station at the door entrance. You can mix and match these boots to chinos, jeans, or suit pants, dressing your look up and down as you see fit. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 31

The boots are made to withstand everyday life, which is why they are constructed with a resole-able Blake Stitchdown and are constructed with a custom water-resistant anti-slip studded rubber outsole from England. They’re versatile and comfortable lined with vegetable tanned leather from Venice, Italy, a foot forming midsole and a molded insole that is removable so that you can replace it with orthotics, should you choose.The boots have the little details which make them stand out, too, like premium Italian leather laces and vintage brass eyelets sourced from Spain. 

Wilson Boot – Waxed Rustic

The Wilson Boot – Waxed Rustic is a classic boot that never goes out of style. For $238, the boot is a reinterpretation of the SB 1 pattern. The innovation and elegance of the Wilson Boot is the product of a partnership with the famed leather tannery Charles Stead and what results is a waxed full-grain, completely water-proof upper that stands the test of time. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 32

The construction of your boot counts a great deal. The interior affects not only the comfort of your foot but the way you sweat, breathe and move. The exterior of the boot has to stand up to the elements and your sense of adventure and ambition. The Wilson Boot is a fierce contender for meeting these criteria with a combination of beautiful leathers and metals sourced from Spain, Italy, Germany and England. Our Oliver Cabell shoes review brought home the message that the company searches around to source the best materials to create quality footwear. It’s a good feeling to know that your boot was hand stitched in Albacete, Spain. 

Oliver Cabell Womens Shoes Review 

What if your sneaker could dress you up instead of dressing you down? In our Oliver Cabell shoes review we found that there is something special about the women’s sneakers. In white, black, nude and alloy they balance feminine and sporty, elegant and down-to-earth. What more could you ask for! Sneakers range from $185 – $198 and while we’ll be featuring the two best sellers -the Low 1 Sneaker – Nude and the Rennes Sneaker – Nude – you should check out the others too!

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 33

Low 1 Sneaker – Nude 

Your first ballet slippers were probably nude and maybe some of your baby doll’s dresses too. When you see these sneakers for $188, you’ll wonder why you left the colour behind! We studied the Low 1 in our Oliver Cabell sneakers review and found that it is handcrafted in the Marche region of Italy—maybe that’s why there’s something so special about them. The low-top silhouette is coupled with buttery Italian calfskin leather. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 34

Don’t be duped by the girly appearance though! These shoes are meant to work with a durable lightweight rubber Margom Italian outsole. You’ll be comfy enough to cover ground in the Italian calf-skin footbed with a removable molded in-sole and the Italian calfskin lining. Even the laces are Italian! 

Rennes Sneaker – Nude 

Sporty but chic—that’s the Rennes Nude for $188. It feels good to make contradictions but who says you need to do it out loud when you can make them with your footwear. The Renee is an athletic retro-runner silhouette reworked with luxury materials, kind of like the woman who can do it all. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 35

The luxury is apparent in the construction of the shoes made of an Italian calf-skin footbed and a Spanish cowhide leather, with Italian waxed cotton laces. The shoes are hand stitched in Albacete, Spain but don’t let luxury fool you. With an Italian Dami rubber sole, these shoes can kick some serious butt! 

Oliver Cabell Shoe Care Review

When it comes to any shoe, but especially beautiful shoes, shoe care counts. In our Oliver Cabell shoes review, we learned about all of the elements and tools that go into taking excellent care of your shoes. To help with this process Oliver Cabell has three care kits: the refresh kit fo $38, the boot kit for $33 and the essential kit for $24.  

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 36

Those aren’t the only considerations you’ll have to take when it comes to keeping your shoes in great condition. You may also want to purchase: 

  • Oliver Cabell Wooden Shoe Trees $18
  • White Cotton Laces $10
  • Premium Shoe Cleaner $18
  • Shoe Whitener $15
  • Leather Conditioner $14
  • Shoe Cleaning Brush $14

Refresh Kit

The Refresh Kit will have your shoes in tip-top condition for $38. The kit includes:

  • 6.75 oz Sneaker Cleaner
  • Shoe Cleaning Brush
  • 1.69 oz Shoe Whitener
  • White Cotton Laces
Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 37

When you’re putting the kit to use, begin by cleaning the shoe with the premium shoe cleaner and brush. The best way to release the shoe whitener is to press gently against the shoe. Work it in by making circular motions against the surface of the shoe. Let your footwear air dry and repeat as needed. 

Boot Kit

The Boot Kit is the fix for cleaning your boots and shoes for $33. Our Oliver Cabell shoes review emphasized the contents of the Boot Kit:

  • 6.75 oz Sneaker Cleaner
  • Shoe Cleaning Brush
  • 45 ml Leather Conditioner
Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 38

To clean your shoes up with the kit, clean the shoe using the Premium Shoe Cleaner and Brush. Next Air dry your shoes. Once they’re dry, apply conditioner with a soft cloth or sponge. Remember—apply it evenly. Let the leather absorb the leather conditioner for five minutes. Voila! Good as new. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 39

Oliver Cabell Shoes Review: What Do Customers Think? 

We took customer reviews into careful consideration when collecting insights for our Oliver Cabell shoes review. The truth is, after the hype we felt with the beautiful look and quality of the footwear, we were discouraged by some customer reviews. Customers were agitated by duty fees and poor customer service. Shipping was prolonged and an overall disheartening e-commerce experience. 

Oliver Cabell Sneakers Review 40

We didn’t let our hopes down though and when we continued investigating, some of our suspicions were confirmed. You can’t source materials from Spain, Italy, Germany and England to make eye-catching footwear and fall flat completely. As it turned out, customers loved the quality of the shoes, the design, look and fit. One customer said it was the best footwear they had ever seen for the price. There were even some contradictions to the review of customer service with the happier customers finding the team accommodating and quick. If you can manage to stay even through some process glitches, you’ll be getting your hands on a truly beautiful pair of shoes. Our Oliver Cabell shoes review concludes—go for it!

There are other reasons to put the Briefs beside their style and jolt of inspiration. They are comfortable, breathable and offer support with their super soft jersey material. If you’re going to look fly on taco day, smooth fit matters, which is why there’s a seamless back and sides and a crossgrain crotch gusset for extra stretch so that your legs stay in place. Maximum support is the way to go, which is why there’s a contour pouch with no fly.
