Icebreaker Oasis Crewe Bodyfit 200 Active Base Layer

Promise

The ultimate itch-free, odour-free and warming base layer.

Performance

Any active fanatic will know – or likely already own – a merino article of clothing in their outdoor arsenal. Well, get ready for more. Here is the ‘Pure New Zealand Merino’ active base layer from the brand behind one of the most popular fibres in outdoor thermals ever.

Icebreaker has been keeping us snug with their superfine merino since 1995 and this essential layer is no exception. With flatlock stitching and seamless underarms, this close fit skin is the foundation of your layering system in cold weather and works just as well on its own as the temperatures climb.

A high crew neck helps trap extra heat, with gussets improving ease of movement without rubbing. Merino wool’s ability to keep you warm when wet and wick your sweat away creates clothing that excels through a diverse range of activities.

Verdict

This reviewer’s NZ patriotism aside, Icebreaker is the sum of the widely recognised kiwi ethos: sustainable, environmentally friendly and ethical. Nature’s insulation in harsh environments has led to Icebreaker’s innovation in aiding our exploration of them. No wardrobe is complete without one.
