MerinoLOFT is lightweight insulation created from premium, ethically-sourced wool fibers. Ten percent of the loft comes from recycled merino offcuts salvaged from the factory floor, while the jackets’ water repellent shell is made from recycled polyester. MerinoLOFT garments are Icebreaker’s warmest-ever jackets, and are ideal for lightweight layering. Icebreaker is using the latest technology to build the next generation of high performance merino.

Lighter comfort. RealFLEECE® wraps merino fiber around a nylon core to create a durable fabric that is brushed to optimize warmth.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So versatile comfy and warm! I have a lot of gear and I've had it for a long time. I'm a long time advocate and wool evangelist. I've worked at shops and have seen just about everything. This is not just a hoody. This piece is genrephobic and has quickly become my favorite thing to wear. It's outerwear for running and skate skiing, base layer for cold weather ski touring/in bounds, ice skating, dinner-wear with a collar under it, somehow it feels dressy to me even though it's an everyday piece (maybe because of what i paid for it?) . Buying it was therapeutic, putting it on is a pleasure, wearing it is like a dream, and it washes well- I wear it a lot already and i just got it. Gratitude -It's wool in it's finest form ever. Simple, smart, and fits perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential for Fall Got this after a cat shredded my old fleece, and decided to go with this despite the price tag because of my fantastic experience with IB products during the summer months. It gets fairly cold here in fall, so I wanted something that could handle runs in the late afternoon and still be reasonably light for longer runs. Well, so far it’s exceeded expectations. I’ve used it for both jogging and walking, and I think the only downside is that I need to leave it unzipped for some of my longer jogs. It’s been unseasonably warm, but this hoodie hasn’t been great at regulating my temperature to keep thing from getting uncomfortable if I just give it a bit more ventilation. Of course, once the temperature drops I’ll probably get a lot of mileage out of the extra warmth. Regardless of that minor downside, it doesn’t smell after the activity is done, which is way better than the old synthetic fleece I was using. Bottom line, it’s low maintenance, and is outperforming my previous jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty warm and snuggy Feels like a good fit and is pretty warm. Not many hoodies have zippers on the belly pocket and this one does. The hybrid section is warmer and keeps your core toasty, also helps with backpacks. I'm 5'9" and Medium fits great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, warm, great fit This is going to be a perfect ski layer, but it is also just so comfortable and well fitting (I am 6'3 and 185 lbs, slim/average body type) and looks great. Cannot wait to wait this all winter. I also love the thumb holes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday workouts and casual wear I picked this up because I was tired of my typical black tech wear. I am very happy with the fit of this pullover. I am 6-0 180lb and have a bit of an upper body from wheight lifting. The medium fits snug but I am happy with the look and feel.
