The Womens Comet Folds Shorts from Icebreaker are lightweight, technical shorts designed for maximum breathability when you’re moving fast, the Comet Shorts Folds are ideal for trail running, ultralight hikes and other high-output pursuits in hot weather. The Comet’s minimalist design provides uninhibited motion and amplifies airflow by combining a 100% recycled polyester main body with panels of corespun eyelet mesh. Corespun fibers use a nylon core wrapped in merino wool for added durability and strength that retains next-to skin softness. Inside, a stretchy inner short features Cool-Lite jersey that’s supportive, breathable and quick to dry. The elastic waistband provides a low-profile fit, and reflective side trim improves visibility while running around town.
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.
