This is my favorite Icebreaker top - and I own a lot or IB stuff! The cut of the Quantum jacket is fitted and flattering, but it still has ample stretch to allow for some layering underneath. The body of the jacket is long, and provides decent "bottom coverage," and the arm length is generous enough... Read More

    I am currently on my 3rd Quantum jacket. i wore the first two completely out - they are covered in holes and only suitable for yard work and camping! Love the fit, fabric and colors! I have longer arms and the sleeves are long enough for me. Best jacket ever!

    Nice fit. Fabric is soft not itchy.

    I love this jacket! Perfect for fall or non-windy conditions. Can layer up for extra protection. It is a little tighter than a couple of other icebreaker jackets. I had bought XS in other color last year and this time I bought S. XS was great in arms, but would show any imperfection around your waist ;) I really wanted purple or green, but hot pink was the only color available. I like the hoof and the wrap at the arms for extra warmth. You don't have to carry hat or gloves for moderate cold.

    Cute jacket and would look best w/ purple bottoms like shown on model. Buy one size up unless you like tight,
    form fitting. It's about a thick t-shirt thickness and nice fitting and it is a bit more orange than the photo.. photo shows
    more salmon colored. Very nice stretchy wool. Hood lining is pale yellow. Not sure if I will keep it for $78 + tax.. expensive.

    I know I've reviewed this before, because I ordered one before and sent it back. But Icebreaker no longer makes these adjustable around the hips, so I needed to keep it because my other five quantum hoodies are worn to rags. I'll reiterate the problems with this one. First it is too long and narrow. I am 5'3", with a 34" bust and fit a size 6-8 pants. I ordered a large. It fits fine around the bust but is too long and too narrow to fit over my hips. When zipped, the zipper bunches up into my face when I bend over. I either have to stretch it tightly over my hips, leaving lots of wrinkles in the middle of my back and accentuates every bump and bulge underneath, or bunch it up above my hips which looks horrible and renders the pockets inaccessible. I will either have to remove the zipper and install a two way zipper (an extremely time-consuming process because the zipper is installed with about 10 layers of stitching and it is difficult to remove without cutting holes in the fabric) or install two small zippers at the bottom hem so I can unzip up it to accommodate my gigantic hips.

    The other problem is that the sleeves end with a double layer mitt. This results in FOUR layers of looped fabric on one side of the end of the sleeve. They are extremely bulky making the sleeve difficult to push up, say, to wash your hands. It's also hot. Finally, they are almost impossible to use as intended, which i presume is as a thumbless mitten because once you get one over your hand it is extremely difficult to pull it over your other hand. I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of that, but it looks like I would have to essentially reconstruct the entire sleeve and again, that would be extremely difficult to do without putting holes in the fabric.

    • Icebreaker's jackets tend to fit tighter in the chest. I am 5'4, 120#, size Small in this jacket works for me very well -- not tight anywhere, but not too loose either. I am not very busty (33), but Icebreaker's XS jackets usually fits tight on my chest, so I'd guess either a small or medium would work well for you.

    • According to our fit models this item is running true to size.

    • Yes. I am 5'6", 130 lb, and the large fits me well. I usually wear a small or medium. Very comfortable, though!

    • I got the small myself, and the length from arm pit to the end of the sleeve is approximately 22 and 1/2 inches.

About Icebreaker

Crafted using only the finest merino wool grown in New Zealand’s Southern Alps, Icebreaker clothing is known around the globe for its incredible comfort and performance. Unlike synthetic fabrics developed in a lab, Icebreaker merino wool is grown, cultivated and field-tested in the mountains. Designed to offer exceptional comfort during a range of outdoor sports, Icebreaker underwear and apparel naturally resists odors, regulates body temperature, wicks moisture and dries quickly. Superfine New Zealand merino wool is also much softer than traditional sheep’s wool, which means no itch. Icebreaker socks, long underwear and base layers also come in a selection of weights to keep you warm without overheating. Ready to join the merino revolution?
