We saw a lot of great gear at the 2015 Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. Now that the show has come and gone, we’ll be sharing some of our favorites with you over the next few days. Here’s a look at what you can expect in the weeks ahead.
This spring Icebreaker is launching a new version of the Ellipse half-zip hoodie ($230) for both men and women. The new jacket combines the company’s popular jersey waffle material (75% merino/25% polyester) with its proprietary MerinoLOFT insulation in the hood and chest. The result is a good balance of warmth and comfort that can be used as a great stand-alone jacket for early morning summer activities or a strong base for layering in the winter months.
And to help keep you comfortable all the way down to your skivvies, Icebreaker is also amping up its underwear collection for both men and women this year with new styles, new designs, and new colors. The biggest improvement might be the increased durability of the underwear thanks to the addition of Icebreaker’s Corespun technology that features merino wrapped with nylon. ‘Cause holes in your underwear are never cool – no matter how hot you are!
