For highly active, high-output days on the skis, trail, rock, or bike, the Women's Zone Long Sleeve Half Zip provides all the benefits of Merino wool with strategic ventilation. The Zone features 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. A deep half zip aids in dumping heat when you're moving fast, and the gusseted side panels keep the shirt from pulling up while reaching. Flatlock stitching eliminates 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.
