If you know of Melanzana, you know how difficult it is to get your hands on one of their coveted Micro Grid Hoodies. It’s a versatile piece that’s great for climbing, backpacking, skiing, lounging, and more. Their products are only available at their headquarters in Leadville, by appointment. With resale prices of Melanzana hoodies going for over twice of their retail cost, it’s not economical to buy secondhand. If you’ve always wanted to pick up a Melly (it’s what the cool kids say), here’s a list of Melanzana alternatives to tide you over, because nobody should be without this ultra cozy, technical fleece.
For cold winter days, or social distancing on the couch, the Marine Layer ReSpun Sherpa Corbet is here to keep you cozier than ever.
This winter has been the winter for extreme sloth-ing. Cozy hoodies, mismatched fuzzy socks, snuggling underneath my fluffy Rumpl blanket with some hot spiced cider in hand… The Outdoor Research Antora Hoody has been my favorite pick for those casual days.
As the days go by, I slowly descend more and more into sloth/slob-dom. Any jacket that feels like a fuzzy blanket is a winner in my book. With the Mountain Hardwear Monkey Woman Grid II jacket, I can get outside and be fuzzy and comfortable too.
