Icebreaker Women's Helix Long Sleeve Zip
Rated 4.8 out of 5Â by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by RKC7 Excellent underlayer on an overnight offshore sail Was recommended this brand by a friend and got great advice from the shop assistant. Excellent underlayer on an overnight offshore sail, although I have previously struggled with the cold on such trips it wasn't a problem with this. Not for toplayer - am informed it is not waterproof. Washed well. 28 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5Â by CandidCamera Almost perfect ... Why ALMOST perfect? I wish the sleeves were lined with wool instead of polyester. I wish the sleeves were made of the same fabric-mix as the body of the jacket. Why? I would like to use this jacket as a "windproof sweater." I would like to put it on over a short sleeved shirt -- like an Icebreaker tech t lite shirt (which I own in almost every color.) As it is, I need a long sleeved sweater underneath this jacket to stay warm. I know because my bare arms about froze the first time I wore this jacket in 55+ (F) degrees. I realize the polyester sleeve lining allows you to slide the jacket on with ease -- that is, if you are wearing long sleeves. And that's my point: it would be nice to be able to wear this jacket with a short sleeved shirt underneath ... and stay warm! I am giving this a four-star rating, because I think I will still make good use of this jacket as a layering piece ... albeit, somewhat limited. 25 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5Â by kayakjunkie Beautiful fit, warm and stylish Great tailoring, neat and lightweight but so cosy I am reluctant to take it off. Fits well underneath a waterproof shell or even my wax jacket for extra warmth. Seams all very well finished, zips and pockets perfectly positioned. Movement is very free and it fits snugly at the neck to keep you warm without choking you. Really love it 25 November 2014

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lizf LOVE IT! Perfect weight for Los Angeles. The cut is stylish and much less boxy than other jackets I have tried. Functional and sexy! 03 November 2014

The Icebreaker Women's Helix Long Sleeve Zip may be lightweight, but it's made with re-purposed and highly insulating MerinoLOFT, giving plenty of warmth with minimal bulk. A recycled polyester exterior is durable and water-resistant, fending off light precipitation, while a wool lining maximizes warmth, breathability and odor control.
