Wore my ultra zip today. Went on a short 10k hike, in cold (15deg) wet conditions. I wore it as an outer layer, with a merino singlet under and a rain jacket over the top. It kept me warm and regulated my body temp throughout the day. Love it!
Excellent top - like the colour and high neck zip style
I like that it is a slightly more relaxed fit. The fabric is beautiful and it is super comfortable. I purchased 2 of these in different colours and I can see they are going to be worn a lot - either as a base layer during the winter or during cooler weather at other times of the year as a light jumper/top.
Perfect. I am very happy with the ultra zip and will be purchasing more. Love the look and feel of the top, the dazzling blue it a lovely colour. Thank you
It is a more flattering fit than the Altitude as it is slightly loser around the tummy. I have several tops in the Ultra range and several in the Altitude range. I am a size smaller in the Ultra. If you prefer a more fitted look, then I suggest going down a size.
It's super comfy and feels a bit silky. I love the zip up as I can adjust the opening to regulate my temperature when I run. This top is a winter staple in my wardrobe, and has just enough room to fit snugly over an Altitude long sleeve zip-up top (as tested at Ultra-Trail Australia).
Haven't worn this as yet but the quality is beautiful and will be so good for winter running
While Merino is an amazing natural fibre, not all Merino fabrics are created equal. At ioMerino, we make our own fabrics, using only the best quality fibres, and to very specific specifications that make the most of the natural benefits of Merino. All of them are 'Merino rich’. No cheap blends passed off as Merino. No cheaper scratchy fibres or synthetic substitutes to save money. No unethical production. And each fabric is made for a specific purpose. So if you see something with a small amount of elastase or nylon added, you can be sure it absolutely needs to be there to enhance the natural stretch and durability.
It took every bit of our 140 years of experience in the wool industry to perfect our fabrics, but we think you’ll agree the end result was more than worth the effort.
