Lighter, sleeker, warmer. MerinoLOFT™ is the streamlined evolution of the down jacket.
Temperature regulating, moisture regulating and odor resistant - unlike synthetics. Warm when wet, machine washable and sustainable - unlike down.
Merino is the natural solution to making the ultimate outer layers that protect you from extremes of temperature without weighing you down and restricting movement with needless bulk.
The Women’s Stratus delivers extreme warmth for weight with our most insulated panels in the range around your vital core and then less around your arms. But because it’s tailored and shaped for a feminine silhouette from the hood to the hem, the Stratus sits great over or under other layers. This flexibility makes it a great go-to solution for adapting in comfort to unpredictable conditions on the trail or on the road.SHOP NOW
With a lighter grade of insulation and added flexibility in key areas, the sleek and sporty Women’s Helix is a dynamic outer layer. But, layer it under a snowsport hardshell and you’ve got a free-moving mid layer of merino warmth that will still protect you from the wind and rain when the hardshell comes off. Plus strip off the hardshell pants, and wear it with it’s matching skirt for a fun but functional look.SHOP NOW
The Nomad contrasts our super-functional MerinoLOFT™ with boiled wool elements to create something new: something not pure mountain and not pure street. It’s a textural hybrid using feminine lines to sit well with a wider range of looks, adding warmth and interest to lives that are similarly mixed.SHOP NOW
Our light and flexible Men’s Helix is a free moving outer layer that also does great duty as an under-jacket jacket. When you’re on the mountain in a snowsport hardshell, you want the Helix underneath giving you that merino warmth in a design that allows for dynamic movement. Then when you do take off your hardshell, you’re still protected from the wind and rain.SHOP NOW
The Stratus is where the extreme warmth to weight ratio of MerinoLOFT™ really shines. It’s got our most insulated panels in the range around your vital core and then less around your arms. But it’s still no bulky beast - the Stratus sits great over a light first layer or under others, making it your best bet for adapting in comfort to unpredictable conditions on the trail or on the road.SHOP NOW
The Departure contrasts our super-functional MerinoLOFT™ with boiled wool elements to create something new: something not pure mountain and not pure street. It’s a hybrid that sits well with a wider range of looks, adding warmth and interest to lives that are similarly mixed.SHOP NOW
Recycled polyester yarn is woven for strength and finished with a water repellent DWR coating.
Extreme lightweight warmth and insulation, even when wet, is delivered by wool fiber batting.
The aim was to design a product that at its core reflected our roots in merino and bring a new level of cold weather performance and insulation that is both highly functional and extremely versatile."

I love lightweight, packable gear that I can scrunch into a ball and shove into a millimetre of space in my bag, and take off to Iceland or wherever — then know that I'm covered."
Dane Bergman, Global Adventurer and great fan of Icebreaker clothing, features in our FW16 campaign.
It was an opportunity we couldn't pass up.
Trekking across one of the only sea level and zebra striped glaciers in the world in the hopes of finding an Ice cave to explore.
With ice picks and cramp-ons in tow we set off and man was this an experience I will never forget.
Epic times in Iceland."
