A women’s half-zip pullover baselayer top designed for all-season use, the 200 Zone Long Sleeve Half Zip features merino wool mesh panels for added ventilation.
For highly active, high-output days on the bike, skis, trail or the rock, the 200 Zone Long Sleeve Half Zip provides all the benefits of merino wool with strategic ventilation. The 200 Zone features our BodyfitZONE™ construction, which combines lightweight stretch merino wool jersey fabric with strategically placed merino mesh panels to improve ventilation and 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.
Womens 200 Zone LS Half Zip is a great base layer providing next to the skin warmth and breathability for active days on the hill. The 200 range is the mid range for warmth and thickness 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, something to be aware of if you stop moving with a chilly wind. 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.
