I'd be all over this if the hooded version in my size and colour preference was available - XL Kale zip hooded :(
How this is constructed is an important detail so I found this. I am am not sure if it is accurate. The Lycra content seems high but it might work depending on the weave.
[main body] 100% polyester, DWR coating, [side & sleeve panels] 46% polyester, 38% merino wool, 16% Lycra, [lining] 100% merino.
Does anyone have a helpful experience that would justify adding it a trip repertoire?
Hi MasterRo- The side and sleeve panels have Lycra in order to stretch and move with you when you're active in the garment. I have one of these Helix full zip garments and it works well as an outer layer, but also as a mid layer in more inclement weather. In the areas where the garment has 100% merino lining, there is no stretch, so by combining multiple fabrics, this garment is body mapped to enhance your range of motion so you're not feeling constrained. I hope that helps.
How this mid layer jacket compares to a 200 weight fleece jackets in terms of warmth and wicking?
Hi Mebaru- This garment is WAAAAAY warmer than 200 weight fleece. It is insulated in strategic spots to keep your core warm without making you look crazy puffy like the Michelin man. What you are wearing for your base layer is where wicking happens. Proper materials and fit for your base layers is what will contribute to successful wicking performance, avoid cotton. Merino wool is my champion base layer fabric, although some prefer synthetic. The drawback to synthetics are that they stink and are petrochemical based (straight up barrels of crude oil)
Thanks, I know a thing or two about layering :) In my experience, merino as a base layer isn't great for heavy activities. When it gets wet it stays wet. A thin quality synthetic base layer works better transferring moisture and keeping your torso dry.
In terms of warmth and size this seems perfect for my needs
However, I tried a merino base layer before and it itched like hell
I wonder, is there someone who has the same skin sensitivity and wears this as their mid layer?
can we get things back to the ultralight category?
Yes! Check it out

massdrop I agree with invsblduck - does the Icebreaker badge come on chest or side pocket? Cheers.
Can we confirm the weight of the jacket? I have found conflicting reports varying as much as 7-8 oz. For ex., Moosejaw lists the jacket at 8.99.
massdrop Can we find out if this is the version with the Icebreaker badge on the chest? Or is it on the pocket? I'm not asking about the one pictured. This particular item does not come as pictured sometimes (on other sites). Thanks!
At over 1 pound that's not exactly "ultralight", but how small does it pack?
Nevermind, it's too heavy anyway.
Lmao...ultralight! Shouldn't we have an 'Outdoors' tag or "Men's Fashion" or something? :-) I'll probably still buy one, but just to wear around town...definitely not to lug around in a pack! Ultralight...
EXACTLY!!! It's funny that you mentioned "Men's Fashion" as I was thinking the exact same thing, but maybe with the addition of...well, I guess I don't want to be the guy who turns things negative, so I'll just keep that part to myself.
This is not ultralight in any way. That's not to say that I'm not interested, just not what I was looking for in this category.
