Icebreaker GT Run Rush Sports Bra - Women's
Bras made purely from synthetic fabrics offer support but tend to breathe poorly. And merino breathes incredibly well, but, by itself, offers little support. The Icebreaker GT Run Rush Sports Bra blends the best of both worlds so that you get the support you need and the enhanced breathability and comfort that only merino wool can offer. Unlike traditional, long-cut wool fibers, merino wool?s fine-cut fibers are soft to the touch, because the last thing you need is an itchy sports bra. Merino wool?s natural fibers also provide excellent insulation and resist odors so you enjoy the Run Rush in any kind of weather.
- For high-impact activities, support structure designed for women with A- and B-sized cups
- 250g/m?? fabric rating balances internal breathability and temperature regulation so you stay comfortable without overheating in a wide variety of temps
- Icebreaker GT technology blends merino wool with Lycra to improve support, increase durability, and accelerate garment's dry time
- Icebreaker makes its products in a way that supports New Zealand farmers, ensures overall welfare of the sheep, and promotes sustainable manufacturing practices

Supportive merino bra!

Yipee for a supportive merino bra! The Rush bra is supportive enough to run in and it keeps the girls warm when sweaty.
Will only buy merino!

I got hooked on the long-wear, low-'stink' merino bandwagon a while ago, but just recently upgraded my sports bras. I LOVE these icebreaker bras for running, working out and hiking. Am planning on bringing two on an Everest Base Camp trek in the spring. The best thing I can say about them is that I don't think about them at all when I'm wearing them! No itch, no smell (even after four consecutive wears), comfy and I love the blue color!
perfect in all weather - and no stink!

who knew that a wool sports bra was the way to go? it is!! even when it is hot. perfectly comfortable! and the no stink means I can wear it a while between washes!

Great sports bra that *doesn't* stink. I got pretty tired of my other sports bras stinking after awhile.
I am a 32C and a size small is a snug but great fit. It's a bit tough to take off, however. The wool material doesn't bother me, but none of Icebreaker's wool products give me an itchy feeling. I've used it for long road biking trips, hot yoga and working out at the gym. Always comfortable!
A great buy and will continue to use in the future.
Depends on sizing

The person I bought this for loved the feel of the wool, but she didn't feel it would be supportive enough for her.

As other reviewers pointed out, it is a bit snug at the band, but it is very supportive and comfortable, and after a while, I forgot all about it feeling snug. I am a 36B, and purchased the medium, and it seems to be working fine. Haven't tried it yet in damp or warm weather yet, so I cannot speak for its wicking abilities. However, I do own a sundry of merino wool clothing (tops, bottoms, socks, long underwear, etc.), and it hasn't let me down yet.

Great bra, but you might consider sizing up. I have four Icebreaker tops that are S, and one XS but the bra was too tight for me to breath comfortably in a small. Luckily, Backcountry has great customer service to get the right fit.
Once you wear wool you'll never go back

Not only is this comfy, but it allows me to lighten up my backpack as this is the one and only bra I need. No stinky means I can wear it over and over in full comfort.
An interesting piece of gear

This is a little heavy and the band does not stretch much so it's a little hard to get on over substantial breasts. That said, once it's on, it's very comfortable, gives adequate support for cycling (I'm not a runner so can't speak to that) and it's warm. It doesn't itch and I like the fit. I'm not sure I'd run out to buy another one but I am happy enough to have it and know I will get a lot of use out of it in the three cooler seasons.

I find very supportive. I'm like a 32c more like a 30c and got an XS. Will shrink though if you dry (tells you not to but I just through everything in the dryer). I am a big fan and have it in the pink and black and am waiting for the blue/purple to come back. Two thumbs up
At last... a wool bra for high impact activities!

I own a variety of merino products including bras by Icebreaker, I/O Bio and Ibex. While I love all of the above, the GT rush bra is the only one I would wear for high impact activities, such as running or aerobics classes. The XS fits a petite frame quite snugly.

I purchased my first Icebreaker merino item, a running shirt, a few months ago. I loved it, but lamented the discomfort of my regular poly/lycra running bra.
I hate the way synthetic fabrics feel against my skin - especially when it's sweaty. I was so thrilled to find that Icebreaker also makes merino sports bras. Merino is the perfect fabric. It's so soft and comfortable and doesn't absorb moisture like cotton or feel nasty like nylon or poly/lycra. I own three of these and never want to put on a poly/lycra bra again.
I've had these bras for almost a year now and wanted to add that I still absolutely LOVE them. I'm a 34-C and the medium offers plenty of support without feeling uncomfortably snug. All three of my icebreaker sports bras are still in awesome condition (machine hand-wash cycle, cold and line dry). The no stink factor on these bras is amazing. I can keep the same bra at work for weeks without washing. I just hang it up after my workout (2-4x a week) and it's good as new when I come back for it. They also stay comfortable all day. As a general rule I only wash these bras when I can actually detect an odor and that takes a significant amount of usage. I'm still shocked that I can hang one of these up soaked with sweat and not smell anything when it dries out.
Great sports bra - would buy again

Nice, easy fit with very soft material.
Good support during weight lifting and spinning. I did not run in it nor do I plan on it - I wear specific running sports bras - but did very high impact spinning and weight training and it held up great.
The wicking seemed to work great (again - I do high intensity training so no material is going to keep me *completely* dry) and kept any odor away even during long workouts.
Only thing I can complain about - I wish it came in more colors! :)
And I wish there was a halter top version....but that's a whole 'nother email to Customer Service. ;)

I love everything merino, and this is a perfect addition to my collection. It's not binding, gives just the right amount of help, and is comfortable all around. I like my I/O Bio a teensy bit better, but not by much.
This holds them tight!!!

I have used this sports bra for skiing as well as daily exercise. Its the best!!!!!
