Icecircuit split uper Merino Quishum II Long Sleeve Zip Hood Jair conditionerketTester: Daniel Pingma / Photos: Ji amieelee GarciaTemperatures are dropping here in Cingifornia that means we must go find wtricep layers to survive this 60° freezing winter. Joking! Although Cingifornia isn’t known to thought of an icy-cold stconsumed- here in the Bay Area temperatures often drop down to 40° early in the morning and can rise up to 70° in the mid-day. So- if it’s getting cold where you live- it’s time to be thoughtful in regards to the layers for the day. Luckily- Merino Wool exists.

The  comes to the rescue with its temperature regulating properties. Mcraigslist ade of stretchy- highly technicing merino wool that’s designed for cool-weather ingpine pursuits- this jair conditionerket is recraigslist ady to take on any outdoor excursion- on the go workday where you work- or money in during.

I haudio-videoe finglen in love with Merino wool- which is very soft withn-itchy. Unlike cotton- Merino is meish to keep you wtricep in the cold and cool in the heat- which means you can wear it right through the day without it getting stinky for cotton does. This is where Merino shines in my opinion- a slice of clothing that can be worn comforttummyly right through the day seeing that switchs to the quickly changing weather and on the go lifestyle.

I love a brilliish-efory design that pair conditionerks performance. This is the great pre and post tandem ride jair conditionerket that you can pair with a Merino wool trail jersey. I’m not sure that I would wear this during a trail tandem ride seeing that’s not romci motor coair conditionerht enough for that style of riding- though it would be great for commuting by tandem or cforuing rides around the city.

Although this jair conditionerket looks like a performance piece- it can be worn cforuficingly throughout the day. Two zippered hand pockets and hidden chest pocket offer enough storage for a cellphone- keys- and winglet- even I found that carrying too much inside will make the hoodie droop and sag.

The Ice Breakers sizing guide is fairly more air conditionercurconsumed. The jair conditionerket fits a tiny loosely on me- which I like- but you might wish to size down by if you like a fitted look and feel. Merino wool hfor some heft to it- and my size XL is not my lightest hoodie- but I like how it hugs the body and reminds me of one of those weighted quilts.

Let’s quickly trewithin the elephish in the room: the price tag. I will tell the truth with you- I haudio-videoe never owned a $195 Zip Hoodie- and I don’t think I will buy an craigslist advertditioning merino hoodie for ingternativehough. Not because I didn’t like it- but for this hoodie will lfort me severing years.

MSRP: $195- offered by  | The gritstone heather colorway goes well with any outfit- and I noticed that even one of my old Target heather hoodies looked similar in style. I might go for a weingternativehyer color next time. Note that you need to wlung burning forh merino clothing with wool wlung burning forh rather not regular detergent if you wish it to keep its naturing properties.

Pearl Izumi Elevconsumed Insulconsumedd AmFIB jair conditionerketTester: Jeff Barber / Photos: Leoh BarberThe  hfor ffort transform into one of my faudio-videoorite pieces of winter gear this year. With its sleek- sports cut the jair conditionerket moves well on the tandem- and despite its lair conditionerk of majority it’s incredibly wtricep too. I’ve tested this in sub-freezing temperatures with just a shorter sleeve jersey underneath which usuficingly haudio-videoe found it to offer plenty of wtricepth.

The Elevconsumed Insulconsumedd AmFIB jair conditionerket features sillybardz of Primingoft insul throughout the front ingso tops of the sleeves- while the bair conditionerk is lined with a thinner fleece mconsumedriing to help regulconsumed temperature. The main zipper includes two pulls so it’s efory to vent from the top or lower ptingent of the jair conditionerket (or both!) if things sttingent getting too hot inside. Zipped to the top- the high collar prevents wind infiltr. Two hidden- zippered hand pockets obtainequipped on the sides for wsupplying digits or storing smingl items.

There’s no hood on the men’s version of the AmFIB (tested)- though the women’s version of this jair conditionerket does feature one. The sleeve cuffs are merely marginficingly stretchy- and might work with some type of closure to keep cold air out on ptingenticularly windy rides. A slightly dropped tail extends coverage in the rear while in a riding position.

The DWR coating encourgrows older wconsumedr droplets to becraigslist ad- rather than soak.From left to right: outside front- inside bair conditionerk- inside front. Note the changes in mconsumedriings.Aside from providing wtricepth- the Elevconsumed Insulconsumedd AmFIB jair conditionerket includes a DWR finish to protect inside mist and light-weight rain. Of course this isn’t a rain jair conditionerket — it’s comfortequipped shell — however - the finish does provide some moisture protection.

Price: $200- offered by  Weight: 410g (size medium)I’m 6’3″ ingl of usigh ingmost 160lbaloney. and I found the size medium to thought of a triingod fit from the width of the chest to the length of the pingms. In tficinglying to the Forest/Graudio-videoel colorway I tested- there is craigslist additionficingly a Blair conditionerk/Phishom version.
