Endure the elements.

Stay protected and comfortable in the Icebreaker Men's Incline Windbreaker when bone-chilling gusts threaten to derail your trail run. The windproof and DWR-treated outer fabric stops chilly breezes and light precipitation in their tracks, while the Cool-Lite mesh lining ensures dry, breathable comfort on the inside. Cool-Lite features merino wool for its natural temperature-regulating and breathable performance, along with Tencel for sweat-wicking, quick-drying action that keeps you from getting bogged down on the ascent. And when the weather subsides, the Incline stashes into its own side pocket for easy storage.

Outstanding combination piece

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

Great wind resistance and insulation for cool-ish temps. Used it regularly during evenings and while breaking camp in the mornings on multi-day motorcycle trip. Beauty of merino is that it's rarely too warm and this piece nails it, even with the wind resistant outer later. As with all Icebreaker items I've bought, I size up.

New Year New Me

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This winter I got fat. It was Cheetos, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and Netflix that led the way but I followed them and now here we are. They’re like those friends you had in college that never really moved on and enabled you to do the same. This spring I said “NO MORE! I’m gonna exercise, I’m gonna go to law school, I’m gonna pick up piano at a late age…” well, maybe, at least some of those things.

I received the MEN'S COOL-LITE INCLINE WINDBREAKER as a gift, and I’ve used it pretty much every day since. It is a wonderful jacket for cycling; the back pocket is perfect for reaching snacks (healthy ones, not Cheetos), it breaks wind well, and keeps me cool on tough climbs. If it’s getting a little too warm, I can pack it into its own pocket for super compact storage. Also when I’m going really hard it has a reflective strip running down the front for a little extra visibility at night. It looks good enough to impress girls at the library while I study for the LSAT. And it’s quiet enough to wear at my piano lessons (I hate piano lessons).

I love this windbreaker and will continue to utilize its versatility.

This piece is very well made and super comfortable. I took it out on a short hike recently and it was really breezy. The Incline cut out the wind but also was extremely breathable. It really performed well! I have long arms and the Large is just a bit short there on me and is definitely "slim fit". Love it!
