#WoolxinAction Dispatches from the road: Iditarod

 

It's not everyday you get a product testimonial direct from the Iditarod trail!

#WoolxinAction musher Matthew Failorhas been wearing his Woolx Grizzly Hoodiewhile racing in the Iditarod since 2016. We caught up with Matthew at the Shageluk checkpoint mid-race last March, and he was stoked to tell us why the Woolx Grizzly is his mid layer of choice from Anchorage to Nome!

 

 A huge thank to both Matthew and Kevin Bodhi for this great video!

Feedback from our customers, product testers, and of course all our team #WoolxinAction members is incredibly helpful to us as we constantly work to expand and improve our product line. Input about fit, colors, and features (like the Grizzly's thumb-holes, music port, and hood shape that Matthew mentions) help us create gear that works for real people in real conditions, not just on the design table!

It has been an honor and a pleasure to provide Matthew with our Woolx 400g heavyweight base and midlayers while he trains and races in Alaska's extreme cold weather conditions. And with white-out blizzard conditions, 40 below temps, and gale force winds we couldn't ask for a better testing ground! Thanks Matthew, we can't wait to see what the 2020 racing season brings!
