This is a review of EDZ merino wool gloves, neck-tube and hat. I have been using them for over a year now and they have been on many wild camping trips in that time – like my 5-day, high level, winter wild-camping trip to the Lakes.
EDZ Merino Wool Hat
The EDZ 100% merino wool beanie hat is extremely warm, but thin enough to fit under a hood or helmet. It’s made of double thickness 200g merino wool.
This beanie fits me perfectly with a nice amount of stretch for a nice snug fit and it’s big enough to cover my ears fully. It’s a great light weight hat that doesn’t take up much room in my pocket when it’s not needed. It’s warm enough for me, when worn under a jacket hood, for full-on winter conditions. The EDZ merino wool beanie hat is my go-to hat since I purchased it. Love it.
EDZ Merino Wool Multi-tube (Buff)
I find having something around my neck makes me a lot warmer and the EDZ 200g merino multi-tube is easy to take on and off to regulate my temperature. It’s 100% merino wool and 50cm long, so it’s big enough to be worn as a neck warmer, hat, bandanna, skull cap, balaclava, or headband. It also fits over my blow up pillow making it nice to sleep on when I’m camping.
It’s lovely and soft and fits me perfectly around my neck, better than some more expensive makes. Being made from 200gsm merino, it’s pretty warm so I tend to use it in the colder months. I have a light-weight synthetic one for summer. I have three other makes of neck tube, and the EDZ 200gsm merino multi-tube is my favourite.
EDZ Merino Wool Touch-Screen Gloves
The EDZ merino wool touch-screen grip gloves are thin enough to wear under outer gloves, or can be used on their own. They are a good simple liner glove. Being made from merino, they are also warmer when wet than a synthetic glove.
However, these gloves are not windproof, so you need an outer glove in really cold conditions. During the winter I use an insulated mitt over them if it’s really cold – something like the Montane Prism mitt or the Montane Minimus mitt. I have these in an extra large size so they can fit over all the gloves in really cold or wet weather.
I think the EDZ merino wool liner gloves are good considering their low price. Personally, I would pay the extra £2.50 for the touch-screen version of this glove. It gives you extra grip when holding equipment and you can use touch screen electronics.
Fibre content: 97% merino wool, 3% elastane and wash them carefully or they’ll shrink if the water is too warm.
