Another Excellent Shirt from Icebreaker
I own four Icebreaker shirts now. Comfort and quality are top notch. This site seems to have the best deals and shipping prices.
Excellent quality and comfort. Had to move up a size for a better fit. Some items seem a little roomy around the waist.
I was a superstar!
My husband got this shirt for Christmas and it instantly became a favorite. Soft, lightweight and excellent for layering, it's also attractive and is frequently warn alone.
the only shirt that you will need
We went over night camping the other day (jan, 2007) and I just grabbed a bunch of stuff and put it all in a bag. When we got there it was cold and frigid, and I grabbed this shirt out of my bag, pulled on my fleece and boom - I was as warm as could be! I loved it! I ended up wearing it for the rest of the weekend.
That same night that we got home I remembered that I had a date, so I grabbed my trusty IceBreaker shirt threw on some cologne, and once again I was back in the game styling as ever. Needless to say its warm, its stylin, and it doesn't stink! What more can I say?
Warm & Dry
This was one of my first wool purchases after using polypro baselayers for as long as I can remember. It is very warm, keeps my dry, and definitely smells better than my old shirts!
I've had this shirt for 2 days, worked out in it both days, and have worn it constantly. Very impressed that it does not hold body odor. It is a little more itchy than I expected - maybe a good washing will make it less itchy. But why would I want to wash it? It doesn't stink at all :)
comfort without the Stink
Icebreaker is the best clothing around. I bought my first piece in New Zealand. It is the greatest clothing to ride all day in and go to the bar in. I wore mine for over a week and it didn't really smell.
My husband is biking to work in the cold Chicago winter, so I had to get him something warm but breathable. I can't have him being the stinky guy at work! This shirt is AWESOME. worth every penny! 1 shirt will last all week before i have to wash it - crazy!
I've fallen in love with merino wool, and the Icebreaker Bodyfit Long Sleeve is my lover. Not only does this thing keep me warm in every condition I've thrown at it, but it adjusts to my body temperature. If I'm cold it warms me up. If I'm warm it breathes and cools me down. Plus it never stinks!...and I'm the stinky kid. I've stopped showering and just cover myself in merino. My life is now complete. Thank you Icebreaker!
Got one of these bad boys about 5 months ago, and it's still keeping me warm! I was a bit weary about dropping so much money on a "shirt" but it does everything it claims to do. I'm in Alaska right now and plan on getting some of the heavier stuff to see if it will stand up to the -50 temps we get here.
Love these shirts!
I now own 6 Icebreakers Shirts. I love them. Oh so soft and easy to care for.
I wore it for a week straight skiing daily without washing. It was very warm; in 23-30 weather wore with just a softshell and was warm enough. I never got wet with sweat. Its well worth the price. You only need one.
You will never go back to polypro!
I bought this item for my father in Santa Fe, to introduce him to Icebreaker. We live in Wellington, New Zealand, and are friends with the owners of Icebreaker, who live and work here. We have several pieces of their gear and have become great believers in the versatility and comfort of merino wool, specifically the blends and fabrics made famous by Icebreaker. My fragrant husband can wear his jerseys for days and they don't smell. That alone would do it for me!
snowboarding without the barnyard smell
My husband is an avid snowboarder and heard that Icebreaker thermals were amazing. They certainly are. He keeps warm and dry all day without accumulating any stink. In his own words, he is "as warm as a sheep, but doesn't smell like one."
This was my first piece of layering from Icebreakers, and after using it for a few days on the slopes, I have been overly impressed with its warmth, odor resistance, comfort, and flexibility. This is quality stuff. I am definitely encouraged to buy more.
Best Merino $$ Can Buy!!
I live in merino shirts from September through April. I own shirts from just about every merino apparel maker. Hands down, the two Kiwi companies (Icebreaker and Survival) have the highest quality. Everything from the fabric, workmanship and styling is grade A.
The Icebreaker Bodyfit line are some of my favorites. It just seems to be the perfect weight (thicker than a standard t-shirt, but not as thick as a sweatshirt) and it's soft and warm all winter long.
One caution about all the "no stink" babble I hear regarding Merino. It's true that it will not create the wrank BO smells that many synthetics are guilty of, BUT if you sweat hard in one or get it wet, you will get that wet wool smell that is not too pleasing. The good thing though is that as soon as the garment dries, the smell goes away.
It doesn't Stink
I had to try wool because I stink. And this stuff didn't stink after a week of backcountry touring this stuff didn't stink. It wasn't scratchy like a wool sweater. And it didn't stink. I take this piece when I travel now because I can hang it outside to air out and then wear it the next day. IT DOESN'T STINK!!
