I'm quite pleased with this purchase. Though this jacket is not nearly as amazing as the igloo hooded jacket from icebreaker, it fills a very basic niche in my wardrobe and does it well. It's warm, comfortable, and looks great, which is about all it needs to do. My only complaint is that it is slightly long in the sleeves, which makes me feel like it's too big despite the rest of it fitting quite well.

I adore this dress. It immediately rose to become my favorite garment as a result of how obscenely comfortable it is and the fact that it can very easily be dressed up or dressed down. The cut of the dress is quite modest, but still very flattering, which means that there are almost no situations when wearing it would be inappropriate. This one handily unseats the icebreaker pisa dress as my favorite merino dress, and definitely gets worn more often.

I absolutely adore this dress. It is insanely comfortable, and looks gorgeous. The merino wool is soft, doesn't itch, and doesn't stink even if you wear it for a few days straight. While it isn't 100% wrinkle-proof it does a more than decent job of staying wrinkle-free. The drape of the dress is extremely flattering, and while I've had problems with shelf bras on other icebreaker pieces the built-in shelf bra is very supportive. I'm 5'6 and the dress comes to just above the knee on me. With a wrap or sweater to cover the shoulders, it becomes conservative enough for me to wear to work. I've only had it for a few days but it has swiftly become my new favorite dress.

I love this dress. It's absolutely beautiful, the drape is extremely flattering, and the plunging neckline is quite sexy. It's the kind of dress you can get away with wearing anywhere: a hike, a wedding, a nightclub, etc. I would highly recommend it.

While the dress has no built in bra it is quite supportive and I find I almost always wear it braless. I'm a 34C, 5'6, 130 lbs and the medium fits perfectly.

I own three pairs of merino leggings: these, the Nau M2, and the stoic merino bottoms. Of the three pairs, these are my least favorite. While the leggings are merino and have all the standard powers of merino wool (stinkless, itchless, wicking, etc.), I think that other merino leggings are just better. When it comes to durability, warmth, comfort and general backcountry use the stoic merino leggings are by far superior. When it comes to stylishness, comfort, and day-to-day use, the Nau leggings win. The truth is these leggings are always in the process of falling off my behind, and require constant adjustments to stay in place. I could never go hiking in them. These leggings just don't compete with the other options that are out there.

Sizing runs small: I am 5'6 130lbs, ordered a medium, and the leggings feel tight and oftentimes slide down.

I'm normally a big fan of icebreaker, but to be honest I wasn't nearly as impressed with this as I thought I'd be. The tank top has a weird ratio of width to height, so I either end up showing my belly in a small or with too much room and next to no support from the shelf bra in the medium. I really wish the bra was better, it's one of the least-useful shelf bras I've ever worn.

I absolutely adore this jacket. It is insanely comfortable, super soft, super warm, and just all-around amazing. The fit is very form fitting, and as others have said it runs a tiny bit small--I'm usually somewhere in between a medium and a small depending on the item from icebreaker, and the medium is a bit tight around the shoulders. It bothered me at first but after about a day of wear it seems to have loosened up a bit. Its cut does make it extremely flattering. I don't think I've ever owned a hoodie that made me look thinner before. All around an awesome piece of gear.

For reference: I'm 5'6", 140lbs, and the medium fits me snugly.

I got this as a gift and absolutely adore it. I/O Bio merino is by far the highest quality merino I've seen; it is much softer and more luxurious to wear than Icebreaker, Stoic, Smartwool, or Nau. It just feels and looks great--perfect as a stylish light hoodie about town or as a baselayer. It is very closefitting, which combined with the (much-beloved) thumbloops makes it great for layering. The hood is very close-fitting as well, and would fit easily under a helmet or hat--though it isn't nearly as attractive for day-to-day wear with the hood up.

I own three pairs of merino leggings: the Nau leggings, a pair of icebreaker nature 200 leggings, and these. While Stoic's leggings are not quite as fashion-forward as icebreaker and especially Nau, in terms of functionality these absolutely win. They're warm and uber-comfy. I'm 5'6 and ordered the medium, and they fit me great though there's enough space in the legs for someone a fair bit taller than me to fit these, but I find I don't mind at all. Like all merino, these are itchless, soft, comfy, and can be worn for about a week before they even begin to stink. It is quite possible that I will never wear pants again.

I own three pairs of merino leggings: these, the Stoic Merino bottoms, and the Icebreaker nature 200 bottoms. This pair is by far my favorite! Like all merino, they are soft, itchless, and can be worn for about a week before they start to smell. They come up to just the right point on my waist: low enough to not make me look like an old lady, but high enough that I never have to worry about them riding down. They're incredibly soft, super comfy, substantial enough to wear on their own underneath a tunic, and just all around great. Warmth-wise I've worn them as my sole leg-covering for walks in the snow and was pretty comfortable--even when walking turned into sledding. The best thing about these as compared to other leggings though is that these are just more comfortable and stylish than what other companies are making. If I'm going backpacking, I'll probably bring my Stoic leggings, but for everyday wear these just plain win.

I love this shirt. It's extremely comfortable, does not itch at all, and fights stink extremely well. I can wear it to a week's worth of workouts before I start noticing any smell at all. I love the long length, which makes it perfect for wearing with leggings. It isn't as soft as I/O Bio merino, but is on par with or softer than icebreaker. The heat regulation is fantastic, and the pocket is absolutely clutch--its also extremely well designed--I can use this as a base layer when layering without the pocket creating issues. I'm usually somewhere between a size small and a size medium for tops, and chose a small for this shirt--it is very formfitting on me, but I'm glad I chose the smaller size.

This is a brilliant idea and design. The bowl packs down tiny, but is perfectly sized, quite sturdy, and is generally perfect. I replaced a titanium bowl with this, and much prefer my sea-to-summit, as it never becomes too hot to touch. Because it folds down flat and can even be turned inside out, licking it clean is a breeze and I never have funky dishes after being in the woods for a while.
