Icebreaker Rush Tank Review

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.

  1. Their stuff all looks so great on you (or maybe you make their stuff look great!).

  2. I am having a tough time wrapping my brain around wool for summer, but I'll take your word on it! Looks great on you.
