    Anybody get their hands on any of the new Icebreaker gear? Any reviews out there yet?

    What exactly are you interested in?

    The weight and the quality of their materials is on the usual (high) level.

    The sizing remains the same.

    The stuff is made in China (just like before).

    Do you own any of the new pieces? I was just interested in thoughts and impressions from use. I have a Circuit jersey that I love.

    Yes, I have:

    Icebreaker Oasis Crewe 200 Men in sizes M and L
    Icebreaker Sierra Full Zip in size M/260
    Icebreaker Sprint Crewe LS GT200 in size M
    Icebreaker SS Team Jersey in size M/150
    Icebreaker SS Cadence Jersey in size M/200

    I am 183/76 and find their sizing to be true and the passform really good for the intended purpose of the garments (i.e. their cycling jerseys are tight fitted (sizing!), and their "normal" jerseys are well designed and executed (flat seams, quality zips, zip protectors, thumb loopholes (not all), pockets placed conveniently)

    A couple of notes:

    - it is interesting, that, apart from the length of the sleeve, there is virtually no difference between the M and L size of the Icebreaker Oasis Crewe

    - not exactly fan of the coated pull tabs and sliders of the Sierra, as they already have scuffs on them and I expect, that the coating will start to peel off at some point. However, that is just an aesthetic problem.
