THE STORY

Long has been the presence of knitwear within the sport of skiing. A timeless technology, knitwear has protected alpinists since the advent of skiing in Norway during the middle ages. Early mountain travelers, relying on long wooden skis for efficient winter mobility, found the combination of woolen fibers and the comfortable ergonomics of knitted yards to make for an ideal combination of external protection, internal warmth, and optimal range of motion.

This same appreciation for knitwear’s unique qualities were eventually also embraced by the world’s first Ski Patrol founded at Mount Mansfield, Vermont in 1938. Worn as dense mid-layers and evolving to include additional elements of utility such as easily accessible pockets and reinforced paneling, Alps & Meters embraces the knitwear narrative embedded in alpine sport to introduce the Patrol Knit.

An authentic ski sweater designed to adhere to the classic principles of heavy gauge knitwear, the Patrol Knit considers the performance needs of Mount Mansfield’s inaugural class of Patrollers while ensuring a Forged Performance upgrade of such genuine garments through the addition of a contemporary technologies aimed to aid those who, today continue, to uphold the legacy of the National Ski Patrol’s dedication to 80 years of winter safety and service.

Really nice

This is really nice. Much heavier than I expected - a thick, luxuriant merino that is plenty on its own for minder days in New England winter. The epaulets, sunglass pockets, and elbow patches are really cool.

It's cut a bit boxy - I'm 5'6", 150 lb, and wear a 15 1/2-33 dress shirt. It's perfect in the shoulder and chest and has gotten compliments already, but I may have it tailored a bit in the waist for my slim/athletic build.

great sweater

One of my all time favorite versatile pieces. I can wear it over a short sleeve oxford shirt for a professional look, or on its own for a causal look. The material is very soft, and will keep you warm.
