Versatile and Warm!
I generally love all icebreaker products, and had been coveting a jacket for a long time. It is quite soft on the inside and a very smooth finish on the outside. It keeps me warm and dry even in misty conditions, and I don't overheat on mildly cool days. I wear it to work all the time and hardly every have to wash it because of the natural antimicrobial properties of the merino. Furthermore, I've made it a whole fall/winter without a snag. My only tiny gripe is that the sleeves border a little short, they are just shy of fitting past my wrist bone. But this is typical for my long lanky frame. I'm 5' 9.5" 130lbs with extra long arms and I ordered a S.
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My spouse has the men's version of this hoodie and was always raving about it. So, when I saw it on sale I really didn't have any excuses left. I've worn it almost every day for about 3 weeks now. It's a slim, shaped fit which makes it really easy to layer under my rain and down jackets, but also works as a simple fleece as well. Doesn't look bulky, but provides a nice amount of warmth.
Tailoring needs a lot of work
I bought two of these the first year they came out in 2010 by accident; meant to order only one. It has a feminine shape but fits tight in the upper arm area, and is loose in odd places on the torso. The front zipper placket is very thick and bulky, and uncomfortable to wear zipped up. It sticks out about an inch from the body and makes you look thicker. I regret buying them and find myself avoiding them. The fabric is warm and soft, nice against the skin, but sheds a lot on the inside and binds to inner layers. Wish Icebreaker had a better return policy.
The warmest fleece!
This fleece is incredible. It's a wall of warmth - i've had it for 2 years now and amazed at its performance. I went dog-sledding in Feb. in Lapland and at often times, i had to throw away the jacket because this fleece was keeping me more than warm. The sweat wicking capabilities are wonderful (of course I was also wearing an Icebreaker 200 undershirt so wool on wool :).
I'm 5.8' - 135 lbs and Small fits me well. Just slightly tight in the hips but i like a snug-fit for the Icebreaker clothes that are more tailored.
