Icebreaker Men's Tech 260 Long Sleeve Half Zip
Snow and Rock sorted us out for the Arctic.
With previous experience of Merino wool, I bought this Icebreaker top and my wife bought Icebreaker 2 Vertex Leggins (and a beautiful KJUS Gilet) from Snow and Rock. A few days later we spent most of the nights lying on our backs on a reindeer skin in Northern Norway, well above the Arctic Circle. We were lucky enough to enjoy the spectacle of the Northern Lights, but this involves a lot of time staring up at an empty sky. I was operating my camera by wireless remote to eliminate camera shake. The merino wool helped keep us warm enough to operate the remote fob without shivering.

A great buy!
Bought for snowboarding in the Alps and it has quickly become an indispensable item of kit. This is my first merino wool layer and I love it! Thinking of buying another for next season as I just wanted to wear it all the time. Worth the investment.

I have bought a second, back-up, top because my first is so good and I need to have an emergency change in my winter rucksack. Indispensable kit as far as I am concerned. The claims about lack of odour despite prolonged use are accurate.

Perfect product for the winter in the UK and the chilly days elsewhere
Good quality & comfortable. Can be worn as an undergarment or for the gym if you are brave with a good body!

the new model needs to go back to the raglan sleeve cut. it fits a lot better. and also to make it longer in the back as was the model a couple of years back.

Great pattern and colour
Well made, good quality top, which can be a 'loose' base layer or as a closer fitting second layer.
I like the high collar, thumb loops, and good length coverage.
The fit is a little too 'casual' for me, and I'd would prefer a more athletic fit. To be fair, the description is slightly inaccurate when it states that it is a 'slim fit' because it's not!...I would say the fit is more relaxed or casual.

A very good fit and thermal properties. You get what you pay for
Above average bit of kit great fit and comfy. It is a little expensive but you do get what you pay for.
