- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
It has become a tradition in our household to get one another woolens of some sort throughout the year for both casual and technical wear. And after having tried and tested many brands Icebreaker has become a fast favorite for its fit, feel and overall quality. Bought this particular sweater (in a small) for my husband this year and he loves it! Icebreaker tends to be ideal for his slender frame (5'9" 145lbs). Of all the Icebreaker pieces worn in our house, this is the first time any of us has bought a more casual-use piece. It's lovely and I'm sure versatile enough to wear for layering, but that's not really its purpose. Other Icebreaker items would be better put to that use. This sweater is a high-quality, comfortable stand-alone.
