The Backstory

Goldwin: A Brand Built to Bring You Back to Nature

For over 70 years, Goldwin has created products designed to help bring its fans back to nature. The brand believes that "the greatest innovations are born from what nature teaches us," which is why it’s committed to creating gear that can help you enjoy everything this world has to offer all year long.

Boasting everything from summery t-shirts to durable insulated jackets, Goldwin empowers wearers to hit the trail regardless of the season. Now, its wide range of comfortable mid-layers makes it even easier to gear up in colder months.

The brand’s mid-layers are made with competitive, technical fabrics like POLARTEC Micro Fleece and SOLOTEX. Both are soft, premium textiles designed to help keep you warm between your favorite pieces. Meanwhile, the company’s Brushed Loopback Cotton is a rather unique material. It’s knitted on a special machine only found in Wakayama, Japan – and it’s only possible to create about one yard of the material every hour.

Now, Goldwin’s new Brushed Loopback Hoodie bears the material’s name proudly – as you can see, there's plenty to be proud of.

What Makes Goldwin’s Brushed Loopback Hoodie Stand Out?

At its core, a good hoodie must always be comfortable. That’s why the brand chose cuffs, hems and side panels designed to fit better and never impede movement. On top of that, Goldwin chose flat seam sewing to optimize the fit further. The soft Brushed Loopback Hoodie also promises outstanding breathability thanks to organic cotton and a ribbed structure applied across the garment.

Meanwhile, the hoodie’s Brushed Loopback Cotton remains highly robust, tear-resistant and equipped to retain its shape after repeated washing. The material is also extremely soft and reads like traditional fleece while providing extra warmth on even the coldest winter days.
