Icebreaker Merino Loft Stratus jacket
Icebreaker’s superior wool garments for men and women run the gamut from cozy base layers to high-performance underwear and socks to excellent outerwear.
The MerinoLOFT Stratus jacket fits into the latter category, with an ultra-light approach to winter warmth.
The jacket sports zoned quilting that insulates the most heat-leaching parts of the body. There’s an adjustable hood with a drawcord, an essential element of any great coat. A zipper chin guard and interior storm flap help keep your neck warm even when you put the hood up. Hand pockets and interior compartments offer convenience.
The jacket looks as great as it feels, with a fitted cut that flatters despite the jacket’s tendency to be a bit on the puffy side of the spectrum. You won’t feel swallowed up in this garment. The polyester shell is durable and made from recycled materials, so you can feel great about the eco-consciousness aspect, too.
The Merino wool delivers excellent warmth without added bulk, making this jacket as packable as it is flattering.
