/ Icebreaker Sierra
been very tempted by the sierra hood jacket myself, but would like to see one for real first but seems to be a very limited amount of shops selling it :(
They're out here in Australia and I looked at one the other day. They're very nice, but quite heavy. OK for casual or cragging, but I think way too heavy for an active technical garment. And frikkin' expensive.
Yes, I have one.
I got the full zip, this one: http://www.theepicentre.co.uk/catalogue/icebreaker/sierra-full-zip
I'm slim fit: 5ft 10+, 32 inch waist: the Men's medium fits me perfectly: not tight, not baggy, but snug.
It's warm, a great insulation piece for most activities..... looks good too.
I wouldn't call it heavy at all; the warmth to weight ratio is quite astonishing.
If you try one on, you will probably buy it.
It washes well - keeps its shape, feel and integrity. Wash warm then hang it to air dry.
I've had mine just over 6 months and have worn it all winter.... 2 months in cold upstate NY.
