MEN'S HORIZONTAL DR. COOL SHIRT
This shirt is constructed using Coolcore's patented chemical-free moisture and sweat activated material to make sweat work for you. Rather than a simple wicking technology, the material delivers three distinct functions: wicking, moisture circulation, and regulated evaporation to reduce the fabric's surface temperature by up to 30%. Unlike other workout shirts Dr. Cool is chemical-free so that cooling benefits last the life of the shirt.

ICEBREAKER IKA VEST
Designed to offer durable weather resistance and added core warmth whether you're out on the river or hiking in the mountains, the Ika Vest combines CORDURA® softshell fabric with a brushed merino-blend lining. Used as an outer layer on milder days, the Ika protects against wind and light precip while breathing efficiently and stretching to move with you. Thanks to its brushed interior, the vest also functions as an insulating midlayer on colder days. Two hand pockets and a chest pocket secure your small essential items.
