Icebreaker Tech T Lite SS Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

I have been buying tech t-shirts for 17 years. Most of those shirts were made of polyester and nylon. After a while (sometimes a short while), they get funky. So funky that they're unbearable to wear. Merino is the solution. This shirt does not smell even after hours of vigorous activity, drenched in sweat. The material dries relatively quickly too. I wear this shirt hiking, biking, around town and on my daily commute. I used to dread pulling on a functified polyester tech shirt for my ride home after work. With the tech lite, that is never the case. I have even gone all day without changing, and nobody is the wiser. I would have offended several people including myself, if I tried to do this in my tech shirts of old. These are great alone in the heat or as a base layer in cold weather as they wick, breathe and insulate well. Every t-shirt I own is slowly being replaced by these shirts. They are comfortable, especially after a few washes. It's crucial to hang dry them. If you don't, you'll ruin the material. I know from first hand experience. Get one, and you're bound to get more. They're awesome.

Negative Reviews:

I purchased this tee (kelly green with a graphic on it) for my husband. It was from Icebreaker, and their products appeared to be really great quality, are really soft for being wool, and they seemed like a cool company. It was expensive, but we thought it would be a good long-term investment for a nice performance shirt. Fast forward just a couple months: The T-shirt developed a hole in the front abdomen area after wearing it just a few times. To give some perspective, I am extremely careful with our laundry. We have a front loading washer and I followed the wash instructions - even putting it in a lingerie bag - and hung it to dry every time. I figured it would last many years. My husband literally has 10 year old way cheaper shirts that he wears regularly that still do not have a single hole. So no, he is not hard on his clothes, and he didn't do any activity in his Icebreaker than he has in any other shirt. He also did not accidentally snag it. If he did, I would consider that our fault. His mom stitched up the hole and sure enough a new one developed about 4 inches away in the same area. I finally thought about calling Icebreaker because I thought "This is ridiculous! We paid so much for this T-shirt." I figured they'd stand behind their products. I told my story as you see above and it turns out, because it had been over 1 year that we'd owned it, the customer service rep said she wouldn't do anything and that she'd send me a 30% off coupon to purchase a new one. Talk about an insult. I told her to keep the piddly coupon, we will not ever buy from Icebreaker again. Maybe other people have had a better experience, but ours was not good and customer service smeared my face in the poo of a T-shirt they left us with. There are plenty of great wool products/companies out there, I will take my business elsewhere. It actually saddens me when a seemingly great company that I'm rooting for lets me down like this.

Neutral Reviews:

These are great tees, but I do have one strange gripe with them. I picked up two of these Icebreaker tech tees as my first Icebreaker purchase about three months ago (can't remember if it was on or not), and then just recently bought a bunch more merino items (mostly base layer / long underwear type items). I noticed that all the new merino items I got from Icebreaker (through were WAY softer than these two tech tees I bought about three months ago. I even had a few items that were also 150gm (the body fit boxers), and were much softer than these tech tees. I called Icebreaker to ask about this, and they actually said it should be the exact opposite, because the body fit boxers have some lycra in them, while the tech tees are 100% merino. Well, my tech tees must either be defective or the person I spoke with on the phone from Icebreaker is the one who has it backwards because my tech tees are without a doubt not close to as soft as the boxers, as well as the apex bottoms and even the heavier original half zip long-sleeve shirt. Now, has this bothered me? No, not really, until I realized how much softer the rest of Icebreaker's products are! I plan on trying the SmartWool NTS Microweight T-Shirt at some point, and if those puppies are also softer, then I'll have that "which shirts should I wear" / "some of my shirts are obsolete" conundrum, which is irritating given the cost of these merino items. But, all in all, my Icebreaker tech tees are not so rough as to be uncomfortable (just not as soft as all the other Icebreaker products) and I did get a chance to put them through the ringer, and they certainly have held up. They dry faster than anything else I've ever used, and seem very well made. I just don't understand this whole softness issue as compared to their other products.
As a note, I wrote that they run a bit large. To be more specific, I observe they run large in length, not so much in cut, which can be good for some uses.
