Icebreaker clothing review

hmmmm, yes that is my butt!
Seriously cool biodegradable packaging- I might frame this : )
A few weeks ago I got a lovely package in the mail from the Nature Shop who have asked me to review their Icebreaker gear and share the pros and cons.  Now this gear is pure New Zealand Merino wool with 3% Lycra- I was a little skeptical about the woollen exercise gear situation and the price tag to be honest, but folks I am seriously impressed.  The fit is perfect, exceptional quality and the top even has those little holes for your thumbs to go through!

I've been wearing this gear for my daily bicycle commute to and from work, and in this FROSTY Melbourne weather I've found it really comfy and very warm! Plus it's happy to be thrown in the washing machine over and over and still looks brand new. 

When my work mates saw me arrive at work in this gear for the first time I had exclamations from 5 colleagues about how they loved their own Icebreaker gear! One fellow had even worn his for a whole month and it still wasn't smelly- not that I recommend putting that to the test but impressive none the less.

Nature Shop are an environmentally responsible online retailer and offer all Australian customers an impressive risk free shopping experience with free tracked shipping (3 - 5 days), free return shipping and a 365 day money back guarantee!  No cons today- It seems I am an Icebreaker convert.
