Icebreaker – Update

One thing about reviewing outdoor gear that continually amazes me is what items I find easy to review and what ends up being difficult. Work and family obligations aside, some seemingly simple items end up being the most challenging to review. And this has been the case with the Icebreaker items we received to review. If you will recall, my two girls (Susan 14 & Grace 10) were asked to test a few items. Susan received the Cascade Half Zip and the Flexi Chute (neck warmer), while Grace got the Long Slee Snow Mt Ranch ve Hoody Flutter and the pocket hat. Sounds simple enough right?

Well the problem is that the Icebreaker items are simple, well made garments. No flashy features for a reviewer to go on and on about, and they are quite well made, not a detail missed, so there are no faults to complain about or improvements to suggest. This leaves me, as a product reviewer, with very little to say (and if you know me, I rarely if ever have “little to say” about anything).

So here is the short version: All of the items are incredibly well designed and constructed. They are simple unassuming pieces that are comfortable, easy to care for, and do exactly what they are intended to do. So if you are in the market for one of these, stop reading this, go to the Icebreaker web site, and buy some. You will not regret it.

If for some reason you insist on reading the actual reviews (and I hope you do since I went through the trouble of writing them) use the links below.
