love the chakra zip!
By mcbrouwer1552634 October 25, 2012
I have four of these Chakra zips and LOVE everything about them. I just received the lush color which is a great true red (some reds lean orange red and some pinky red but I can't pin it to either..it is a perfect red). For size help, I buy a small in Icebreaker's "body fit" and "nature" lines and I have a thin athletic build 5'4", 107lbs and 34AA chest and broad shoulders. In Icebreakers casual/travel clothing I buy an XS. (In other brands of casual clothing I wear a size XS/0). In this body fit style the size small fits slim to the body's contours but it isn't tight and I can fit a thin cami under. The material is a nice soft fine merino wool which regulates body temperature. I wear this running in the cooler/cold temps and the zipper helps when I start heating up later in the run. I layer this top sometimes as a base and sometimes a mid layer with a thin cami under and vest or heavier weight top on the top. It works for all outdoor persuits like hiking, running, skiing etc and I also wear this with a skirt, down vest and tights and boots in a casual outfit. It is a staple in my wardrobe..for me even my workout clothing has to look good and perform good at the same time. I'll admit that have quite a collection of Icebreaker clothing and all of it is the highest quality and has lasted for years. Washes easily in cold water and line dry. Couldn't say enough great about this top and all of Icebreaker. So great that Backcountry/Dept of Goods offers them at a great discount for us addicts!
