The Icebreaker Men's BodyFit 200 Zone Short will quickly become your go-to underwear for backcountry skiing, summer backpacking, and alpine climbing. Its merino wool provides lightweight thermal regulation, natural odor-resistance, and plenty of breathability. Icebreaker added Lycra for stretch, and a gusseted construction ensures freedom of movement. There are also mesh panels for enhanced ventilation, and smooth flatlock seams reduce chafing on the long days.

It isn't always necessary to wear a ton of layers below the belt and I find these shorts coupled with a taller ski sock to be perfect for warmer days under a light softshell when skiing/touring. Great Merino/Lycra blend, very comfortable and irritant free seams. No chaffing here and very efficient insulation without sponging up sweat when your breathing gets heavy. I look forward to using these on cooler days when wading or around the fire when you need just a little more warmth. Easy to couple these with a full length long john if you need a little extra warmth for the chairlift and they layer easily without bunching. Icebreaker makes a great product and this is a nice option to have and regulates temperature and moisture very well.
