Icebreaker clothing is crafted using merino wool grown in New Zealand’s Southern Alps, where weather can be extreme. Unlike synthetic fabrics, Icebreaker merino wool is grown and field-tested in the mountains, rather than created in a lab. Engineered to perform in a variety of outdoor activities, Icebreaker clothing naturally regulates temperature, breathes to prevent clamminess, resists odor for weeks, and protects skin from the sun. Superfine merino wool is also much softer than traditional wool, so you’re never itchy or uncomfortable. ...

I bought this jacket to replace a thin down jacket I used for travel and I love it! It weighs almost nothing, looks great and is very warm! The only issue is that I wish the hood had a drawstring but other than that is is so far better than down and will be my go-to coat in the early chills of fall and winter

I have two of these and I love them. These shirts are a more casual, looser cut than the tech scoop neck shirt. They are my favorite of the icebreaker T shirts and I reach for them for outdoor activities (hiking, rock climbing), travel, everyday wear, base layer. I even wear one of them to sleep when I got one on sale. I am 5' tall and 114 lbs, and I usually wear an XS and sometimes a S on form fitting Icebreaker shirts. I bought these in XS and they are a perfect fit.
The collar on both of mine don't lie completely flat, but that is part of their casualness.It has a bit of a rolled neckline effect. This shirt has subtle contrasting color peeping out from the neckline, and that adds a bit of interest. When I want a more finished neckline, for example for work when I want a shirt peeping out from under a sweater/jacket, I wear my tech scoop neck T shirt.
I came late to discovering Icebreaker shirts. They are now a staple. My oldest shirt is 1.5 years old. It has held up well with machine washing and not using in the dryer, although it has accidentally gotten dried in the dryer a dozen times and still comes out fine. No shrinkage. Compared to nice quality lightweight cotton T shirts (the thin kind), these Icebreaker lightweight wool T shirts hold up better, are more wicking, cooler, and more versatile because they are also insulating when you need that.
Obviously, I'm a fan. They are worth the extra money.
