Discontinued. A classic with a thicker, midweight merino wool knit, Icebreaker's Original Zip base layer top wears well under a fleece while skiing and on its own during aerobic activity in cool conditions.

I'm wearing this icebreaker right now. For me this is a top layer over a base layer. I live in a little cabin and I wear lots of layers to keep warm. I don't like a tight fitting sweater and this is roomy enough for me. I'm 5'1 and 105 and I got a medium size and it work great for layering. I love the icebreaker brand.

This is a great shirt. I have many wool tops from Icebreaker, Ibex, smart wool. This is by far the best of them all. It is a solid and heavy material. It is soft and fits great. I usually am between a M and L, the L fits great as it will most likely end up in the dryer at some point and shrink a little. Wish they had more colors, but this color is a medium gray almost lavender and very nice.

Excellent fabric, fairly thick and very warm. The sleeves are rather long and I have long arms for my size (5' 4"). I know this is so that the sleeves can be pulled down over your thumbs but they are a little longer than necessary. Otherwise this is a perfect sweater. It is well made and flattering to the figure. I highly recommend it.

I have bought two of these shirts. I love them. I wear them over short or long sleeve lighter weight shirts in colder weather or alone in warmer weather. I wear them under my ski jacket, and motorcycle jacket. Whether hiking, skiing, motorcycling, boating or working in the yard, these shirts are so comfortable. I showed them to my daughter and she is going to buy one for herself. They have the thumb hole to help keep the shirt sleeve in place and warm the top of the hand. They are a great all around shirt. I am a small (2-4) and the small fits loose, and does not shrink when washed in cold water and hung to dry. A great buy for the price.

This is an outstanding piece from Icebreaker. I am 5'8", slim/athletic, small fits perfectly. The small is a bit looser than other pieces I have from Icebreaker, but that's perfect because you will use a lighter against-the-skin piece under this one. It's so warm, but still breathes like Merino is known for. Icebreaker is a million times better than the other wool brands, both in execution and in company ethics. And with the better price on STP, there's no reason to hesitate.

I'm 5'11" and 170lbs, and the XLarge was too wide and too short for me. I've never tried Icebreaker on, but thought I'd give it a try. Ended up returning it and buying a Smartwool version (same size) that is longer and slimmer for me.

I, and my daughter, love this sweater, especially the styling- set in sleeves, back yoke and darts. I sure wish Icebreaker had not discontinued this classic wool knit it layers so much better over and under than the newer fleecier sweaters.
