Base Layers

Begin with merino next to your skin. Merino will regulate your body temperature, insulating with tiny pockets of air in the cold and wicking away moisture and heat when you sweat. Plus, because the merino fiber is super fine it feels silky soft against your skin.

Mid Layers

With an excellent warmth to weight ratio, merino adds warmth without bulk, making it perfect for wearing in layers. Fabrics like our Icebreaker merino RealFLEECE® use brushed merino channels to create greater pockets of insulation and breathability. By using them over merino base layers your clothing will move and breathe as one.

Outer Layers

Complete the outfit with a weather-resistant outer layer. Choose one with a merino lining to add more insulation and keep your outer garment moving with the warm layers underneath. Our MerinoLOFT™ jackets deliver extreme warmth with large pockets of insulating merino wool under a water repellent face fabric.
