Icebreaker Brand Spotlight and Giveaway

While many outdoor apparel companies were searching for a breakthrough with new synthetic fibers, Icebreaker founder Jeremy Moon looked to nature -- specifically merino wool from New Zealand sheep. His then-girlfriend introduced him to a sheep farmer who had a prototype base layer made of merino wool.

Moon was totally impressed by this new fabric; it was lightweight, "soft and sensual," he said, and unlike any wool he had worn before. But it wasn't until he slipped it on that he began to realize this fabric's full potential: The merino wool kept him dry and comfortable, even during high-intensity activity. That's the moment he knew the rest of the world would love it, too.

When Icebreaker first broke onto the scene, it was mainly marketed toward athletes and intense outdoor explorers. But as more people discovered merino wool's luxurious benefits, it's become a much-loved staple in wardrobes around the world.

Icebreaker's commitment to sustainable practices and animal welfare are another reason why the company has so many loyal followers. The merino wool used to make your clothing comes from farms and factories that meet Icebreaker's high standards of clean technologies, fair treatment of workers and garment quality. Icebreaker's roots are in merino wool base layers and undergarments, and over time they have added sweaters, skirts, outerwear and fashion collections -- all to give people more opportunities to enjoy all that merino wool has to offer.

New to Icebreaker? Base layers are a perfect place to start. They're a great next-to-skin layer for any and all activities, from skiing and hiking to just lounging around on the weekend. Take a look at some of the Icebreaker base layers currently available at Sierra Trading Post:

1. Icebreaker BodyFit 200 Oasis Base Layer Top (for men)An ideal choice for cold and warm weather sports, this base layer top is designed to give athletes more versatility through a range of temperatures in a lightweight, merino wool knit.

2. Icebreaker Apex Base Layer Bottoms (for men)An "Editor's Choice Award" winner from Backpacker Magazine, the Apex base layer bottoms feature a silky-soft, performance-rated merino wool.

3. Icebreaker Everyday Base Layer Bottoms (for women): These base layer bottoms are made of lightweight, itch-free merino wool that wicks moisture, breathes and regulates temperature naturally. They have built-in UPF 20+ UV protection and flatlock seams that won't irritate your skin.

4. Icebreaker BodyFit 260 Tech Base Layer TopThis base layer top is designed for the coldest conditions. It's a midweight layer made of silky-soft, active-ready merino wool fibers that are smart enough to wick excess moisture, help regulate your temperature and feel luxurious next to your skin.

I love Icebreakers products. So warm and comfortable. I fell in love with the brand on a trip to New Zealand last year. This gear definitely helps when getting out in nature during the fall and winter season. Always keep me comfortably warm. I have their socks, gloves, scarf an Oasis baselayer and their Sierra sweater. All are excellent, high quality gear. I am always on the hunt for more Icebreakers stuff and all was bought on STP because they seem to have the best prices on Icebreaker clothes.
