Embrace the summer with Icebreaker Merino Wool.

Naturally Better for your next run. 

Hello, QMT fans! As trail running season kicks off, we’re thrilled to welcome you back for another season of races. With Icebreaker at your service, our goal is to ensure you’re equipped with the perfect gear for your summer training and racing adventures.

It might seem strange to think of wool in summer, however, merino wool proves to be exceptionally comfortable in warmer weather. Why, you ask? Well, thanks to its remarkably fine and lightweight fibers, merino wool efficiently pulls moisture away from your skin, allowing it to evaporate into the air, keeping you cool and comfortable even in the heat. Additionally, these superfine fibers offer a soft, gentle feel against your skin and possess natural odor-resistant properties, ensuring you stay fresh throughout the day.

Discover Icebreaker products, made from 100% natural fibers, to keep you dry and cool on warm summer days. 

Icebreaker products are available in all La Cordée stores and ONLINE! 

Icebreaker Cool-Lite™ technology can wick sweat three times faster than merino alone, and the Icebreaker 125 Cool-Lite Sphere Tee is the perfect piece of gear to keep runners cool, dry and comfortable all summer long.

Wool socks no matter what the season, provide 

breathability and moisture-wicking to help keep your feet dry and can even prevent blisters. Merino wool is also antibacterial, meaning no more odour buildup. Icebreaker has something for every runner, but we love hitting the trails with the Icebreaker Merino run + ultralight micro sock. 

ZoneKnit™ technology balances warmth and breathability while exercising and incorporates strategic panels of eyelet mesh for enhanced airflow. The result: all the natural benefits of merino wool, with an extra dose of cooling. Stay cool on the trails this season with the 125 Zoneknit thermal top base layer

Naturally Better.

Merino wool forms the basis of Icebreaker clothing and today the company’s business reflects their commitment to natural fiber solutions. Good to know: 95% of their global fabric consumption is natural or plant fibers and only 5% of all fibers used come from petrochemical synthetic fibers. Icebreaker also uses plant-based fibers, such as organic cotton and linen and plant-based TENCEL Lyocell. Mixed with their heroic fiber, merino, they make beautiful, versatile and high-performance fabrics.

For Icebreaker, the key to the future of our planet is not only to preserve nature, but also to rebuild it. This is why the company works with its producers to conserve and rehabilitate our ecosystems.
