Icebreaker SS15 Women's Adventure Travel

Auckland, New Zealand (August 2014) – Travel and hiking in the heat will be a breeze with Icebreaker’s latest collection of summer tops made from premium natural fibers.

For Spring/Summer 2015, Icebreaker keeps travelers and hikers cool with an innovative new fabric combining the performance benefits of the world’s best merino wool and Tencel®, a fiber made from sustainably-produced wood.

Merino regulates temperature, breathes to prevent overheating, dries fast and resists odor for days, cutting down on laundry. Tencel® has a high natural moisture content that keeps the body cool in the heat on even the longest treks, while its exceptional wicking abilities absorb sweat fast for comfort. The fabric also has a touch of nylon for extra strength.
Icebreaker has used its new Icebreaker Cool-lite™ fabric to create a range of lightweight summer tops, tanks, hoodies and wraps.

New Icebreaker Cool-lite™ garments for women are the Sphere Tank, Sphere SS Low Crewe, Sphere LS, Sphere Hood and Sphere Wrap, while the men’s range features the Sphere SS T Crewe, Sphere SS Polo, Sphere LS Crewe and Sphere LS Hood.

The summer collection highlights strong hot-weather colors and high-energy stripes. Dying Icebreaker Cool-lite™ fabric gives an on-trend mélange affect.

Vice President of Product Mark Koppes says Icebreaker merino has always been a favourite for travelers and hikers because of its thin, lightweight layers and its ability to regulate temperature depending on the climate and conditions. “Adding Tencel® to merino increases the cooling and drying properties, creating a garment that’s perfect for the heat,” he says.

“There’s nothing better to wear against your skin this summer, whether you’re hiking in the wilderness or exploring a new city.”
