We know that synthetic fibers are light and breathe well, but sometimes we just yearn for something a little more, well, natural. Icebreaker built its new Glory with this in mind, creating a jersey for the cyclist who prefers the natural properties found in merino wool over the polyester competitors. The design team worked with merino as their primary fabric and engineered a jersey that's light, breathable and provides a level of comfort unmatched by synthetics. For the construction of the Glory, Icebreaker used a blend of merino wool, nylon, and Lycra to achieve absolute freedom of movement while on the bike. Icebreaker's 150g merino combines the best qualities of traditional wool, synthetics and cotton. It???s soft and doesn't itch, it???s warm in the cold and cool in the heat, and it breathes. People have been drawn to these natural properties of merino for years, and now you receive them built directly into the paneling of your cycling jersey. Additionally, this lightweight merino blend pulls moisture vapor to the surface of the fabric, where it quickly evaporates -- It can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture before you even start to feel wet. And one of the best characteristics of this material is that it naturally resists odor, keeping you dry and fresh much longer than synthetic fabrics. Icebreaker also included eyelet mesh zones for additional ventilation. For the fit of the jersey, Icebreaker created the Glory on an anatomic curve that not only takes the female body into account, but also the female body while in the cycling position. This results in the jersey following your movements in the saddle, while at the same time minimizing abrasion. To store all of your riding essentials, Icebreaker included three ample rear pockets, one of which is designed to hold your pump, and an additional zippered pocket with built-in headphone wiring port for stashing your media devices.
