Why Icebreaker Merino?
The merino is an ancient breed of alpine sheep. Over millions of years they evolved a superfine, highly breathable fleece to protect them from freezing winters and scorching summers. It will do the same for you.
TEMP CONTROL: Merino naturally keeps you warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather.
BREATHABLE: Merino absorbs and releases vapour to prevent overheating and clamminess.
UV PROTECTION: Merino gives you extra protection against the sun's harmful rays, naturally.
NO ODOR: Naturally anti-bacterial, it can be worn for days without washing.
