Icebreaker Persist Plus

Versatile pant

Brand: Icebreaker Apparel Reviews

Model: Persist Plus



We often praise wool baselayers for their temperature regulation, and these wool pants from Icebreaker bring the same performance to outerwear. On a trip to Glacier National Park’s Granite Park Chalet, the Persist Plus’s cozy merino lining (which contains 34 percent Tencel for extra softness) kept one tester warm during a stargazing session on a 30°F night. On the 8-mile return hike, the pants breathed well enough that she didn’t overheat when temps rose into the 50s. The face fabric has 42 percent nylon for durability and 10 percent Lycra for stretch. A DWR treatment repels moderate precip. Ding: price. (m’s 32); m’s 28-40, w’s 26-33
