This Shirt Doesn’t Stink: Icebreaker’s Atlas Half Zip

Posted By: The Ski Channel on April 6, 2009 5:07 am

How do we love Icebreaker clothing? Let us count the ways. The merino wool is New Zealand’s finest, and is so soft, you’ll think you’re wearing silky brushed jersey. Even better, because it’s 100% natural merino, it’s non stink, which means you can rock the slopes as hard as you can and like a rose by any other name, still smell as sweet.

The Atlas Half Zip is perfect for long ski days, as it’s heavy enough to beat the chill factor and light enough to layer. Flat seams reduce friction so it won’t chafe, and the zipped up neck keeps the wind out.

One of our favorite features? Icebreaker’s ‘Baacode,’ which is standard with all of their products. Visit the Icebreaker Web site and type in the code on the inside of your garment and you’ll be able to track where it came from—all the way back to the sheep. Repeat after us: Baa Ram Ewe!
