The Mountain Men Hoodie is a lightweight, soft, and eco-friendly sweatshirt. Made from recycled polyester and USA-grown cotton, this hoodie keeps plastic bottles out of landfill and is about as eco-friendly as clothing comes. Durable and fitted, this hoodie looks great on the street, beach, or peaks.
The Mountain Men artwork is the first piece that began Vela Apparel. I was inspired to make during our first winter in Minturn. It sat around for sometime, until we decided to try and sell it as a T-shirt, and I was so happy about the response it got from our friends and neighbors. Everyone identifies with the Mountain Spirits in some way. The two old mountain men in this piece are the symbol of that eternal spirit that draws us into the peaks.
