Icebreaker Sport 320 Rock Zip

Posted

Pros: comfort and softness

As with most merino you're comfortable, not warm or cool. The Ibex I have is slightly warmer and perhaps tougher but I'd bet both will outlast me. These 2 companies make the worlds best sweaters.

Pros: Warm, breathable, geat fit, no odor retention, soft, durable,

Cons: can be pricey

My favorite piece of clothing... period.  This is the top that started my conversion to merino wool, and for good reason.  It's a perfect weight - light enough that you can wear it anywhere and not get hot, but heavy enough to keep you warm.  And while it's awesome as a skiing midlayer, it's also great just for casual wear whenever you want.  It's an incredibly versatile and comfortable top.  You could probably wear this for a week straight and it still wouldn't smell either.  Try to find one on sale (i.e. steepandcheap), but even if you can't the high price is still probably worth it.  Very highly recommended.

Icebreaker Sport 320 Rock Zip
Description:

Icebreaker's merino wool Rock Zip top gives you the comfort of New Zealand Merino in a mid-weight layer perfect for skiing or snowboarding insulation or a comfortable winter shirt. The Rock Zip, with its uniquely stylish 2-tone block, is especially well suited to travel - wear it for days on end without a hint of that scented ripeness we all know too well. without the use of chemical treatments found on synthetic fibers. Thumb loops help keep cold at bay and your sleeves un-rumpled inside your jacket. Merino has some incredible advantages over synthetic fabrics: it keeps its heat-retaining properties when wet, prevents body odor build-up, offers expedition-weight warmth at half the bulk, and rivals many synthetics in breathability.
