I recently returned from a humanitarian dental trip to Samoa. It was a great experience. We treated nearly 1,000 native Samoans in the most remote villages we could reach. Great people and culture, beautiful scenery, a wonderful experience… enhanced by an Icebreaker t-shirt.
As a participant on the trip (this is my third year with the group – I provide ground support, helping set up and maintain our portable dental equipment), my one checked bag gets used for medical supplies and toothbrushes. That left me with a carry-on for my personal belongings (limited to 14 pounds), for a planned 11 day trip. I brought one set of clothes, snorkel gear, a first aid kit, electrolytes, emergency food, passport and a headlamp all in that carry on.
I climb and have a couple of Icebreaker pieces that I love to take to the mountain. But I had no idea that one of your t-shirts would do so well as a travel shirt in hot, humid equatorial South Pacific.

Feedback from another satisfied Icebreaker customer…:
“I cannot express enough my extreme satisfaction with your product during our 21-day trip to Mongolia. We were horseback riding, camel riding, kayaking and camping. The trip of a lifetime!
Since we needed to pack light – I was especially drawn to the low-stink factor of your shirts. Everyone else on the trip was spending time doing laundry when we got into camp – but I just kept on having fun because my shirts didn’t stink! (And I looked good and felt comfortable).
Thank you for your great product!”

After 30 hours or so in transit, New Zealand band Electric Wire Hustle are enjoying their second tour through Europe wearing none other than Icebreaker Superfine. Here’s a quick update from band member and Icebreaker Graphic Designer Dave Wright:
“So far we’ve had a couple of amazing shows in London followed by Vienna, Frankfurt, Poznan and Berlin. Next to come are Basel and Amsterdam.
With temperatures in the mid to late thirties the entire trip, our Icebreaker Superfine t-shirts have been integral. Traveling with a load of instruments while disembarking trains or planes to get to different venues and go straight into set-up, our Superfine tee’s have eased the heat and stink that would have accompanied!
This picture is of the three of us in our Superfine prior to traveling from London to Vienna to perform in a planetarium.”
Have a great rest of your tour guys, we’re stoked you’re wearing Icebreaker on your travels!
