Bought this for my daughter who DOES run ALL trails - champion trail runner, represented Australia twice in overseas trail championships (worldwide), she epitomises the trail runner, happy, caring, loving nature. Ideal present for her, I think.
One of my specific reasons for buying the polo, apart from wearing it casually, I wear it under my yellow protective clothing as a volunteer firefighter. It is extremely comfortable in very hot conditions as it does not stick to your skin when sweating heavily and with the wicking ability helps with managing my body heat. Being wool it also gives that second level of protection against burn injuries.
The socks are soft, comfortable and fit like a glove, a perfect sock to wear with boots.
I ordered the XLand it is tight. I normally wear a Large, never an XL.
I would say in Canadian sizes, it is more like a medium or large slim fit. Not very flattering if you have any love handles. It is cute and I hope I can lose enough weight to wear it one day.
I have stopped wearing leggings under my skirts for awhile now because of all the synthetic fibers and I decided to get these after a very long search to find the best. After about 1.5 months of searching and reading reviews I decided to get these. I followed the size guide and I found a perfect fit, I never want to take them off. Now I wear long, mostly ankle length skirts and I run in them so I sweat and I sweat a lot but these are amazing. I also have very stretched out skin from having children and these really hold things tight so my skin doesn't hurt when I run or itch. So pleased! I'm super excited to get a second pair but I need to save a bit for them. They also keep their shape after a couple days. I'm so thankful!
These have been a great buy. They were a little long and I took them up. They fit well and ate veey comfortable
Great fit, fabric is light and warm
Very comfortable for travelling on long haul flights
Nice to relax around the home in too
These track pants are a delight to wear. They are light comfortable and easy to wear during any activity. They also wash well. Also smart enough to wear while just out and about.
This tee is kinda sheer and a little see through, which I wasn't expecting. It is soft and comfortable though. A good running tee.
These yoga pants were perfect for my recent trip to the UK. Comfortable all the way during the long flight and perfect for the cold weather there on arrival. I wore them the whole time I was away and they didn’t crease, lose shape or go baggy in the knees! Am about to buy another pair…
These are soft and wick moisture really well. I love takng them for a run. They are my favourite socks right now :-)
It is cuddly soft and washes well. My husband loves his too. Nice and warm. Well worth it. Will definitely buy again.
This is a versatile crew. Great for running, yoga and keeping hands warm.
comfy, wicking, long-wearing, dry fast, look great - what else do you need?
being an avid supporter of the merino industry and io merino product i purchased 3 pairs of the mens trunks about 12 months ago- it was not long before i dreaded wearing the cotton brands i was wearing prior to that. I then purchased enough IO mens trunks to ensure i had 100% comfort 100% of the time.
I previously purchased these Altitude Briefs in size large which is we within my normal size of 12, these were to small so purchased x-large which should have been plenty roomy, only to find them essentially the same size as large when layed over them. Very disappointing as I usually love the ioMerino clothes.
I’ve been after a good hoodie for a while and had my eye on this. I bit the bullet on Monday, called up, got great service over the phone and when I got home from work today it had arrived! The hoodie itself is feels so soft, fits great and the quality is amazing. Now considering buying a different color! Thanks IO!
I'm very pleased with this black hoodie, which I've had for about a week and a half now.
First off, it's surprisingly substantial and densely woven for a merino garment. Because of this, the hoodie provides above average wind resistance - and hence warmth - when used as an outer layer compared to other merino hoodies I've owned (Icebreaker Quantum, Chrome Cobra V1).
I also appreciate the non-technical, classic styling. There's nothing wrong with a more tailored, athletic, technical looking hoodie, but the majority of merino hoodies on offer in the market fit that description, so it's welcome that IO Meriono offers us an option with a more casual look.
Again, I can't praise enough the density of the weave of the fabric used for this hoodie.
The only drawback - which is quite minor - is that due to the thickness and strength of the fabric and stitching around the cuffs, I'm unable to pull the sleeves back to my forearms. But that's okay, I'll gladly trade that feature for a garment of this warmth and exceedingly high quality.
Thank goodness the sharp-looking black version doesn't come with the tacky front-and-back silkscreen branding (sorry, IO Merino, it's not personal - I don't enjoy feeling like a billboard for any of the clothing I buy). The white silkscreen lettering on one side of my black hoodie is more than enough branding for my liking.
Would certainly buy again. Overall, nice job, io Merino!
Only used a couple of times but it’s great. Comfortable fit keeps me warmer than a t shirt and the thumb holes help keep fingers warmer on frigid hills mornings. Time will tell for durability. Love the colour (mint I think)
