Additional Care Instructions:

Icebreaker garments are designed to be easy for you to care for. We recommend that you wash your Icebreaker garments on a normal warm or cool machine wash cycle with regular powder or liquid detergent, not wool detergent. Don’t use fabric softener or bleach. Separate lights and darks as usual. Also, do not expose any Icebreaker garment to heat and do not tumble dry. Line dry or lie flat in the shade.

NOTE: After your first 2-3 uses, we recommend that you wash the garment separately to diminish the appearance of any short fibers from the fabric.

Complete instructions for best results:
  • Wash like colors together (e.g separate lights and darks)
  • Wash prints inside out
  • Close all zippers
  • Use warm or cool machine wash on a normal cycle (avoid a hot wash, this contributes to shrinkage)
  • Use regular detergent, not wool detergent
  • Do not use bleach or fabric softener under any circumstances (your Icebreaker couldn’t be any softer)
  • Wash occasionally with denim (e.g. jeans with the zipper closed) or other coarse fabrics to remove any loose fibers.
  • Do not iron prints or labels
  • Line dry garments – do not tumble dry 


All Icebreaker merino wool survived freezing winters and scorching summers at up to 8,000 feet in the Southern Alps of New Zealand on the back of a merino sheep.


As a result, Icebreaker products insulates to keep you warm in winter, and breathes to keep you cool in Summer.

Solid Product Review by GMT
These shirts have a really nice feel. Very comfortable cut, and soft fabric. The price is a little steep, but at least you get a solid product for the money. (Posted on 1/18/2014)
Go to shirt when working out Review by David
This is the first wool shirt I bought that doesn't make me itch or smell after a month. (Posted on 1/10/2014)
Favorite shirt Review by Bob
Anything from Icebreaker is of the highest quality merino wool, and that means it lasts, it doesn't stink up, it's comfortable, breathable in the heat, and still keeps you warm in the cold. This tech t lite is one of their best as far as I'm concerned. Great fit, looks great, and makes for a good conversation starter. Well-worth the pricetag, this is a premium high quality shirt after all, just be careful when drying, I air-dry mine but have run it through the dryer once or twice and it didn't shrink up too badly (lowwwww settings!).

Great Product Review by Jeff from US Elite
You’re just going to love the feel of the lightest merino Icebreaker T-shirt. The popular style Tech T Lite is an odor resistant yes we did say odor resistant alternative to cotton perfect for the hottest months. Icebreaker’s merino wool is engineered to keep you warm during the winter and cool during the summer. Merino feels better, warms better, breathes better, smells better, and is truly a must try. Now I know what your thinking when most people think about wool, the first thing that comes to mind is “itchy” and “uncomfortable” and would never dream about working out in it. I promise you that once you try Icebreakers silky smooth merino wool you wouldn’t dream about working out in anything else. Did I forget to mention that the Tech T Lite is also great for traveling? No matter where your destination is the merino wool T-shirt will have you traveling in style and comfort. The Tech T Lite IS also easy to take care of after long days of working out or traveling. Just pop it in the washing machine and let it line dry. Yes, $65 may seem a little pricy for just a T-shirt but the 100% merino superfine 150 wool is a technical garment that can be used all year round and we believe it is worth every penny. Stay cool and odor free during the summer heat with the Icebreaker Tech T-Lite. (Posted on 7/30/2012)
Love it Review by Jeff
Just got my shirt the other day and I cannot stop wearing it out and to the gym. Its super lite and keeps you cool on a hot day. I never noticed how much of a difference the material made until I threw on a cotton t-shirt after wearing the Tech T Lite. I have the Cajun color and I've been getting so much attention from a bunch of people. Its awesome to say the least! Highly recommend it! (Posted on 7/25/2012)
Awesome piece of gear Review by AMT
This shirt is an amazing piece of gear to be added to your summer backpacking load. A little pricey for a T-shirt, but well worth the coast. You can sweat all day in this shirt, hang dry it, and put it right back on with no oder to it. I packed three of these shirts with me for a month long backpack trek and wore one per week. Light weight, comfortable, oder free, and durable. (Posted on 7/25/2012)
Best Shirt Review by Steve
I love this shirt! Crazy high price, but takes the place of several T's - best overall shirt I own, pretty casual but can be worn with a jacket for a night out just as easily as on the range or in the gym. Also this is the best travel piece I've ever had, the "no-stink" thing is for real! Not that I make a habit of it but can be worn for days in a row without offending the ladies...One thing to consider, Icebreaker doesn't mix well with the dryer (might be appropriate size for your pet hamster when it gets out), recommend to dry this piece air dry. Also, definitely size up, in other words get a bigger size than you normally wear. Depending on the shirt I'm L or XL usually, but on Icebreaker even the XL is a little tight. This is true across all the Icebreaker products I've tried (the Boxers w/ Fly too, hug the boys pretty snug sometimes). (Posted on 7/24/2012)
