200g Lightweight Merino
Weighing in at 200g/m2, this is Icebreaker’s lightweight merino that’s used to make their base and first-layers. Garments of this weight perform well when worn on their own in cool weather, but can also be layered up in colder temperatures. They’re ideal to wear for cold-weather training or as snow-sports base or mid-layers.
Icebreaker BodyfitZONE Base-layers
Icebreaker’s BodyfitZONE base-layers take the original Bodyfit base-layer to a new level. New for 2015 / 16, BodyfitZONE garments feature body-mapped 120g mesh merino panels in high-sweat zones for better ventilation and heat-retaining 200g merino jersey panels in exposed areas for increased warmth. Hello, perfect temperature regulation!
Why go Merino?
Merino wool is a unique type of wool hailing from the merino sheep, and has been a landmark fabric for many a specialist brand. Merino fibres are smoother, softer and lighter than those of standard woolly-jumper wools, which makes them super thermally efficient. They also have a natural crimp which means more air pockets for warmth and breathability, plus merino is naturally antibacterial, so it won’t stink after one afternoon on the mountain. Merino also contains Keratin, which is scientifically proven to be really good for your skin, making it one of the best base-layer and underwear materials around. It’s generally more expensive than the equivalent polyester, but is often worth the extra dollar. All Icebreaker merino wool is responsibly sourced from New Zealand, then processed, dyed and packaged using recycled water and materials, as well as eco-friendly dyes.
