I was thinking of ordering some stuff off of the icebreaker site. What's great? What sucks? Both male and female clothing. Thanks

250 T-shirt, love it. I will wear it several days in a row. But I pretty much love anything made of merino wool.

Huge merino wool fan, wouldnt ever wear synthetic exceot when doing high aerobic activity in hot weather. Find Smartwool fits me a little better hence (cheeky plug) the Icebreaker bodyfit260 for sale here...

Thanks everybody, this is good stuff. I go out in the woods about 8 days at a time for work so i'm looking for a good wear the whole time shirt.

Simon-what's the difference in fit? Icebreaker runs small or large? I'm about 5'9" 160 lbs normal build

I found the Smartwool to be more of a slim/atheltic fit, whereas the Icebreaker is slightly looser. I'm 5'10" 165lbs and the small size Smartwool fits me nice for a baselayer - ie slightly tight no loose layers. the medium icebreaker I have is really nice for a general LS top but a little loose/baggy for wearing under layers

Many MEC pieces are made in canada, use quality merino, and are 1/2-1/3 the price of bankbreaker ;)

Smartwool products are made in the USA and Icebreaker products are made in Asia. They are comparable in quality, and also comparable in price. For me that's enough said.

For socks, you can't beat Point6. Also located in Steamboat Springs and also made in the USA.
