The secret to finding the ultimate hoody for a mud run? It’s all about the material. Skip cotton, spandex, and polyester, and go for Merino wool, which traps warmth where it counts. The midweight Icebreaker Quantum Long Sleeve Zip Hood is exactly what you want. There’s no added bulk like a classic hoody. But don’t be fooled into thinking its semi-fitted shape isn't effective. Even when wet, real wool stays warm. Thumb loops anchor your hands keeping the sleeves from getting pushed up, and eyelet panels ensure ventilation. And of course, like all quality Merino wool, it’s breathable, fast drying, and odor resistant. Plus, its tight stitching is extra durable, so go ahead get rough with it. ($180; amazon.com)
