Gear Review: Icebreaker Sierra/Cascade Long Sleeve Hood
A mideweight merino layer perfect for on or off the mountain.
“On my last winter trip, this cozy jacket never left my body,” raves our tester. “The midweight merino kept my temp even-keeled from 15°F mornings (snug hood up) to sunny middays (full zip open), only getting damp beneath my pack on steeper climbs.” The fleecy inner is itch-free, and fit is contoured, so the coat can double as an extra-warm baselayer or sleepwear. Post-hike, the stink- and wrinkle-free Sierra (Cascade is the women’s model) has ski-town good looks. $200; 1 lb. 5 oz. (m’s XL), m’s S-XXL, w’s XS-XL; us.icebreaker.com
