A heavyweight men’s merino wool zip-neck baselayer shirt for highly aerobic days in cold conditions, the 260 Zone Long Sleeve Half Zip features zoned ventilation panels for active temperature regulation and ample breathability.
A heavyweight baselayer shirt with optimized fabric zones for active performance, the 260 Zone Long Sleeve Half Zip is a technical top for skiing, winter climbing and other highly active days in cold conditions. This warm, breathable and odor-resistant top features our BodyfitZONE™ construction, which combines a merino wool and Lycra® blend with strategically zoned panels of highly breathable eyelet merino mesh that actively controls temperature during high-output pursuits. In the higher-wear areas around the elbows and forearms we added merino and polyester waffle jersey for added abrasion resistance. Raglan sleeves, gusseted underarms, and flatlock seams throughout offer ample range of motion and eliminate chafing during fast-paced days.
Icebreaker's 260 Zone LS Half Zip is a great winter base layer providing next to the skin warmth and breathability for chilly days on the hill. The 260 range is the warmest and thickest of the baselayers from Icebreaker.
The zoned construction provides greater breathability under the arms and on the back when working hard. The flip side of this more open weave is it will let cold air through more easily. Make sure you chuck on a wind proof if you stop moving. The zip provides further thermo regulation.
The merino wool with its natural odour resistance makes it a good choice for multi day use. The top is a slim and athletic fit. The flat lock seams are a useful feature to reduce chafing when on the move.
