Designed to optimize temperature regulation while biking, hiking, climbing or running, the Women's Comet Lite Short Sleeve Half Zip takes the strategically zoned fabric design of our best-selling Comet series and updates it with a lighter weight fabric that’s ideal for moving fast in warmer conditions. Styled after the classic bike jersey, this highly breathable tech shirt features 155g/m² jersey Cool-Lite fabric, which blends soft merino wool, natural Tencel and a touch of Lycra for stretch.
The Comet Lite also features our corespun fibers, which use a nylon core wrapped in merino wool for added durability and strength that retains next-to skin softness. Strategically placed panels of corespun eyelet mesh amplify the shirt’s airflow and a deep front zip aids in ventilation, ensuring you stay comfortable during hot, high-output days.

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.
