Designed to provide baselayer warmth in a minimalist package that's ideal for spring ski tours, cool-weather climbs and other active days in mild conditions, the Zone Shorts are fully gusseted for unrestricted movement. The Zone Shorts feature Icebreaker's BodyfitZone construction, which combines lightweight 200-gram stretch Merino wool with strategically placed Merino mesh panels to help regulate temperature during stop-and-go days of skiing, climbing and cold-weather hiking. Flatlock stitching keeps these bottoms from chafing during day after day of dynamic motion.
Nature created Icebreaker merino wool as protection against the scorching summers and freezing winters of New Zealand’s rugged Southern Alps mountain range. The merino is one of the world’s most ancient and toughest breeds of sheep.
Icebreaker has pioneered the use of merino wool in the wilderness since 1994, and have now fused nature and technology to create merino layers for the outdoors, for performance sports, and for the city. Icebreaker merino garments are soft and non-itch, warm in the cold and cool in the heat, they breathe to prevent clamminess, and have a miraculous ability to warn off stinkiness.
