Using merino wool to keep you warm and dry, this form-fitting jacket plays well with others or stands alone in peace.

Move over down and polyfil, and make room for the new kid in town. The SmartWool Men's PhD SmartLoft Divide Full-Zip Top maximizes the versatility of merino wool to keep you warm from your first fall hike through your last spring ski trip. Wear this zip-up as a super-heavyweight baselayer when you're climbing in extreme conditions or wear it by itself at the tail of April showers, and let the DWR-treated front panel shield you from wind and light drizzle. Behind that nylon, SmartLoft insulation keeps your core warm with its proprietary combination of wool and polyester that regulates your temperatures better than all-synthetic insulation and, unlike wool, keeps warming when it's wet. On the arms, sides, and back, a double layer of merino wool jersey offers intelligent protectino from the elements when you're working hard. Lined entirely with soft merino wool, this jacket won't leave you an itchy wreck if you're only wearing a tank top underneath.

  • Face fabric nylon shell with DWR, water resistant
  • MerinoMax (97% merino wool, 3% elastane) arms, back, and side panels
  • 100% merino wool jersey lining
  • PhD SmartLoft insulation (75% merino wool, 25% polyester)
  • Full-length zipper with garage and draft flap
  • Extended cuffs with thumbholes

155 lb 6 feet tall and skinny, any recs for sizing? M or L ?

Responded on

Height and weight are both majorly influenced by the other half of your body that isn't covered by your jacket. This makes deciding between two sizes increasingly difficult when given only this information. I strongly suggest measuring your chest measurement and finding where you might compare against the size chart.

If you still are unsure which size to get please chat in or give us a call and one of our Gearheads would be happy to help.

The Ideal mix of SmartLoft and Morino

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

For days when the temps aren't sub-zero, this is my go-to mid layer. Morino wool keeps you warm and dry where you need it, and the smartloft insulation in the front gives you and extra boost of insulation around your core. The back panel's morino is particularly nice when you're carrying a heavier pack, as the wool breathes and wicks moisture that would just build up if you were wearing a down.

Comfortable mid-layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Got this as a mid-layer for skiing. 6'3", 185#, large is a perfect fit. Pulls on easily over a medium base layer, and is very comfortable with great mobility. Not a heavy duty mid-layer and maybe a bit pricey, but nice wool materials, and just right for my needs.

Has anyone tried to shrink this jacket?
Mine is huge considering I wear baselayers in the same size and they fit snug. I'm debating about returning it....

Best Answer Responded on

I have personally never found Merino to shrink all that much to begin with (compared to other wool products anyways), and I doubt that the nylon section of this piece would help at all with letting the wool shrink if it did... that being said I haven't personally tried to shrink one, so maybe it's possible. I'd just return for a smaller size if I were you though, seems like a few to many variables that could end up producing some weird effects.
