Proof Upscales the Travel Sweater With This Made-in-Japan Essential

Technical apparel brand Proof is upscaling and upgrading the travel sweater this season with their new 72-Hour Merino Hoodie, which is not only packed with hidden benefits but makes a statement with its luxuriously cool waffle knit.

Designed to be the perfect travel sweater, the merino wool construction keeps it fresh for 72 hours when on the move thanks to its odor-resistant and moisture-wicking properties. The subtle nylon infusion, meanwhile, provides a "soft, non-irritating wear that won't lose its shape."

Each piece is carefully made in Japan as a single piece of fabric via a Shima Seiki knitting machine, which not only provides less material waste but a sleek seamless design that keeps things ultra-comfortable and irritation-free. It's finished off with articulated elbows for improved mobility and range of motion and a kangaroo pouch for keeping your hands warm and quick storage for everyday carry items.

You can make a play on your new go-to right here, where you'll have your choice between black and deep grey.
