Icebreaker One Sheep Suit

One of Icebreaker‘s biggest claims about its merino baselayers is their odour resistance. Recently I spent nearly 10 days living out of a snowboard bag in the Canadian Rockies. Without the conveniences of laundry (or after session showers), I put these claims to the test and the One Sheep Suit passed with flying colours, much to the chagrin of my travel partners.

As a baselayer, it’s warm, even when sweaty, due to the properties of merino wool. And the best part, it’s comfortable. This isn’t your grandfather’s wool suit. I actually wear it around the house when I’m working. It’s breathable, moisture wicking and not the least bit itchy. It’s no wonder it’s become a favourite with Mountain Life staff (voted Local Pick in Mountain Life Ontario 2016 Winter Issue). —Brian Peech

From Icebreaker: Ready for deep powder days, shoulder-season backpacking trips and frosty hikes or snowshoes, the Zone One Sheep Suit is full-coverage battle armor against cold conditions, any time of the year. Our all-new BodyfitZONE™ construction uses strategically mapped insulation and breathable panels for intelligent temperature regulation, and the shaped hood and deep front zip help make small adjustments. We built the Zone One Sheep Suit with a fully gusseted construction and contrasted, flatlock stitching to offer unrestricted, chafe-free movement when you’re skinning uphill or romping down through the trees. The suit’s breathable panels feature our corespun fabric, which uses nylon fibers wrapped in merino to increase durability and retain next-to-skin softness. And when you’re out enjoying Mother Nature, the front fly and back flap with a two-way zipper make it easy to answer her call.
