Icebreaker Descender LS Zip

The Descender LS Zip is a technical midlayer designed to provide warmth without restricting your movement in any way. Made with midweight, textured RealFLEECE® fabric that is strong, durable and soft with a high-loft brushed back and diagonal heat-trapping channels to help regulate your temperature during high-exertion adventures on the slopes or along trails in cold conditions. Other features include lighter-weight side panels to help manage moisture and dump excess heat, offset shoulder seams for pack-wearing comfort and thumb loops to anchor the sleeves for easy layering and extra warmth.

Made From Main: 240g/m2 textured brushed terry RealFLEECE® 84% Merino wool, 9% nylon, 7% LYCRA®
Side panels: 200g/m2 unbrushed terry 88% Merino wool, 9% nylon, 3% LYCRA®

Merino wool is super lightweight, soft, non-itchy, non-clammy, warm in the cold and cool in the heat, and has a miraculous ability to resist odour. Because it was made in the mountains rather than in a petrochemical laboratory. It's naturally renewable, recyclable and biodegradable.

RealFLEECE® is Icebreaker's natural, luxurious, brushed Merino wool alternative to a synthetic fleece. Made with corespun yarn, the superfine Merino wool is reinforced with a fine nylon core for strength and durability and the brushing traps heat to provide you with supreme softness and warmth while keeping weight down.
