I’m a pretty dang lazy person. I wear the exact same thing to work nearly every day, because it’s easy and I don’t have to think about it, plus bike commuting means I don’t want to get my nice things sweaty and dirty. I do laundry every other week, but also because doing laundry is expensive and I hate wasting quarters. I also like clothes that hide when I eat too many cookies, which is all the time. The Black Diamond Dawn Wall Hoody is perfect. The polyester stretch jersey is technical and casual all at once. Toss it on at work or at the crag; you won’t look out of place at either.
This past summer has been the summer of weekend road trips. Friday nights we were tossing our gear in the back of the car and driving for hours. I’m basically the best sleeping road trip partner you can possibly find, and I do it in comfort. The Black Diamond Dawn Wall Hoody was my best friend for those sloth-like hours and hours in the front seat.
I’m the world’s laziest person ever; when it comes to the elements, I tend to baby my down jackets and prefer my stinky, synthetic insulation over the fluffy good stuff. When Outdoor Research sent over their Diode Hoody, I was a little skeptical. A down jacket to battle the elements? It didn’t seem real.
If you’ve been following along on Little Grunts, you know how much I absolutely adore anything merino wool. I mean anything that keeps me lazy and stink free (and also helps to conserve water) is fantastic in my book. When Woolx sent me their new lightweight Base Camp Hoodie, I immediately fell in love.
