Icebreaker Women's Tech 260 Turtleneck
Can't beat this for a basic
Hard to explain the value of a good black turtleneck but this one is special - the ease in the arms makes a huge difference when you are layering it with other pieces or a heavy coat - breathable as all Icebreaker merino pieces are . . . don't hesitate. I should also say that I wear this to work and it is never too hot and I wear it hiking - always warm enough.
I always wear a large and the large fits perfectly.

Perfect 1st layer for winter
We keep our house a little on the chilly side in the winter, but if I wear mid-weight Icebreaker turtlenecks under a flannel shirt or sweater, I am toasty warm. Great product!

Elegance Basic for any occasion
This is worth every penny. Washes beautifully and wears like iron. I wear it under Bliss wrap and am never too hot and never cold. I typically wear a large and it fit perfectly.

Tech Long Sleeve Turtleneck
Love this top. I have been wanting a warm turtle neck and this is perfect. The fit is just right! I live in cold Wisconsin and ride my bike all year round so this is great. I would highly suggest this.

I love this - I will wear it to ski as well as out for a night on the town. I only wish it had a thumb hole.

Versatile - From Office to Outback
I have been wanting a plain (no zippers) Icebreaker turtleneck for ages. When I saw this, though, I was worried that the 260 weight would be too heavy for everyday (i.e. indoor) wear. So glad I took a chance! It's perfect. Smooth knit that can look dressy but still perform. The neck is the perfect height without folding. Offset shoulder seams make it look dressier and avoid rubbing from shoulder straps. Very subtle IB branding on the left sleeve (black embroidered logo about 1.25" across). I sized up, since most "Body" series tend to be skin-tight. I am a busty size 14, and the XL fit tailored but loose, able to wear a tank underneath and roll up sleeves comfortably. I will be wearing this a lot this winter, and I'm considering buying a second one.

Roomy yet looks tailored
I have two bodyfit tops and a crave hoodie; all purchased in XL, allowing me to dry them in the dryer (after 6+ wash cycles they are still fine). Based on the other reviews that said the Tech top has a more generous fit, I ordered L. The cut is roomy across the chest but nicely tailored in down the body. Fits nicely and I expect it will still be roomy enough after washing. You can see in the model's pose the generous fit when her arm is out on her hip.
The neck is high, again the photo shows it accurately, and I use the zipper down indoors then zipped up for the windy outdoors. Work great.
What I love about Icebreaker tops is they dry quickly and hold their shape.

I absolutely love Icebreaker tops; I had to stop skiing several years ago but still need warmth in winter. These great tops offer function and major style! I wear mine as casual black tops all the time. Quality and comfort are exceptional. A little pricey but worth the investment.
