Technically advanced, environmentally conscious and incredibly comfortable, the Ellipse Long Sleeve Half Zip Hood is a hybrid-construction midlayer that uses strategically-zoned insulation for warmth and protection where you need it most.
In the hood and chest panels, we used our MerinoLOFT™ insulation, which provides a warm, breathable and natural alternative to synthetic insulations, with a 100% recycled polyester face fabric. In the body and arms the Ellipse Long Sleeve Half Zip Hood features a super-soft and quick-drying blend of merino wool and recycled polyester with side stretch panels that actively manage moisture during cold, high-output days in the mountains or out on the trails.

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 ODOUR: Naturally anti-bacterial, it can be worn for days without washing.
