Merino wool in the summer? Normally one thinks of wool for cold winter days (I have a couple Icebreaker pieces I love for cooler weather), but merino wool is great for extremes – breathable in summer, insulating in winter, yet exceptionally soft and lightweight. Plus no stink and non-itch, make this Icebreaker Rush Tank an ideal natural performance clothing alternative for hot and humid Midwest summer running.

"Our merino combines the best qualities of traditional wool, synthetics and cotton. It’s soft and non-itch, it’s warm in the cold and cool in the heat, it breathes to prevent clamminess, and it has a miraculous ability to warn off stinkiness – you can run a marathon and still smell as sweet as if you’ve spent the day on the sofa" (from Icebreaker.com).
Not only does Icebreaker make a great product, but they're also environmentally conscious. Their products are made from nature and are inherently self-sustainable and made with integrity. Each garment has a Baacode which can be typed in to trace a garment from source to shelf.
