Winter 2014/2015 has been the strangest weather that I’ve seen in a long time here in Squamish, BC. While skiers should be thriving, it’s cyclists who’ve been in heaven. The mountains are craving snow with many people starting to doubt … Continue reading

All About That Base (Layer)

We’re Ready for You Mother Nature. What if, as much as Mother Nature throws at us in terms of extreme weather conditions, she has actually provided a solution too? As the North Eastern United States has just dealt it’s fifth snow storm this season, we wanted to remind you that there is hope to protect yourself against the elements. Nature provides us with merino wool, the most naturally technical fiber in the world. Icebreaker merino provides the most naturally technical clothing systems in the world.

Born In Nature – Worn In Nature. Merino sheep have a light, fine, ultra-breathable coat that keeps them cool in the scorching summer heat of New Zealand’s Southern Alps. When winter sets in, they grow an extra layer of wool over their base coat so they can roam through fields of ice and snow in warmth and comfort (learn more with Merino 101). We’ve adapted merino wool into a system of lightweight layers that give you the same freedom to explore your environment. Wear a next-to-skin layer in warmer weather, then layer up for insulation in the cold. When Icebreaker garments are layered together, air is trapped in between each fine layer to ramp up the warmth. Your layers lock together like a single lightweight garment.

#GetLayered in 3 Steps. With this technical knowledge and based on the merino sheep’s summer and winter coat weights, Icebreaker pioneered a dynamic, micro climate-controlling layering system almost 20 years ago. Our constant innovation has allowed us to create one of the world’s most efficient and effective natural clothing systems available.  With variable weights, across base-layers, first-layers, mid-layers and outer-layers, every layer you put on works with the other layers to ensure that you keep a totally comfortable body temperature – whether working out or just hanging out.
