Pathfinder Boundary Waters Plaid (Blanket Weight Heaviest Wool)
NEW! Pathfinder Half-Zip PulloversOur newest addition to the Pathfinder series is a half zipper that goes all the way down to the top of the kangaroo pocket. We received so many requests for this that we just had to make it happen. Check them out, this may be our best wool pullover ever.
Made from the same high quality, soft warm wool fabric that Asbell wool products are famous for AND some really great features.
Instead of the normal slash pockets - you get a true kangaroo pocket that goes all the way through. These pockets are easy to reach and keep your hands toasty warm when the temps dip down low. On the front of the pocket there's an additional zippered accessory pocket that's the perfect size for small incidentals - like your phone. Most folks use their phones for taking pictures while out hunting and this zippered pocket assures that anything you decide to carry there will not only be out of the way of your hands, but also safe and secure. (Just remember to zip the pocket.)
The hoods are roomy enough for caps and hats of all sizes and add an extra layer of protection from the elements.
You can't beat the soft silent and even water resistant qualities of our wool for outdoor activities, but Asbell wool is especially good for stalking and still hunting.
The bowhunters that field tested the Pathfinder for us are really impressed and we think you will be too. Maybe it's time to add a Pathfinder to your wool collection?
"We stitch a little luck into every one."
Wool has been the choice of serious outdoorsmen for hundreds of years, and nothing much has changed…
People who spend lots of time in the outdoors, whether working or playing, still prefer wool knowing that it will keep them warm, even when it’s wet, that it wears like iron, and yet, is as quiet as the daintiest feather when brushed against anything. And, after a wearing it a few times, wool takes the shape of your body and becomes as comfortable as any old house slipper could ever be. No one has come up with a product that does all those things, and wool remains the one that all new fabrics are compared against. Our wool comes from sheep in the United States, and our products are designed, sewn and shipped by American labor.
The basic pullover we make today was designed and has been sewn by Teresa Asbell for over 30 years. You could probably say these wool pullovers cut their teeth on whitetail deer, but make no mistake; they’re long on experience and have kept hunters comfortable on every mountain and woodland trail throughout the hunting world.
Layering is the secret to being comfortable under just about any climatic conditions, and wools ability to trap air and to generate warmth with minimal bulk makes it particularly usable for layering. “Layering” refers to the practice of putting on more than one layer of clothing, which traps air between layers, and allows the addition or removal of layers as comfort necessitates.
"Everyone is different but with a pair of longjohns and a medium weight wool shirt under my pullover, I can stay comfortable in very cold temperatures for several hours. If I get cold I’ll pull on one of Teresa’s vests over it all." gfa.
