An incredibly comfortable and environmentally conscious vest designed for technical outings in nature, the Women's Ellipse Vest is a hybrid-construction layer that uses strategically zoned insulation for core warmth and protection where you need it most. In the chest panels and upper back Icebreaker have used 70g MerinoLoft insulation, which provides a warm, breathable and natural alternative to synthetic insulations, with a recycled DWR-treated polyester face fabric.
In the lower body and shoulders, the Ellipse features a super-soft and quick-drying 230g/m² waffle fabric that blends merino wool and polyester to actively manage moisture during chilly, high-output days in the mountains or out on the trails. Zipped hand pockets and an internal stash pocket secure all your small daily essentials.

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.
