Icebreaker base layers and thermals are naturally anti-bacterial, can be worn for days without washing, give you extra protection against the sun's rays and absorb and release vapours - prevent overheating and clamminess.
A chance meeting with a New Zealand sheep farmer in 1994 led Jeremy Moon to merino sheep and their amazing wool. The sheep have a superfine, highly breathable fleece that protects them from freezing winters and scorching summers. Having tried a prototype of a merino t-shirt, Jeremy was convinced that a layering system made from this wonder fabric was the future of outdoor sports.
Years later and almost everyone in the world of snowboarding agrees that merino base layers are the best you can get.
