IcebreakerSpark Short - Women's

Light up the track or trail in the Icebreaker Women's Spark Short. The soft merino wool blend fabric regulates temperature to keep you cool when you're active, and it's blended with Lycra for unrestricted movement. A tight, short liner provides a supportive fit, and flatlock seams prevent chafing. The wide waist reduces pressure points and provides a flattering shape. It's finished off with a stash pocket to store your key or credit card and reflective tape on the side seams that helps you stay visible during evening runs.

These shorts were the conclusion of a rather lengthy quest to find shorts with built-in underwear that were merino lined rather than synthetic. An avid backpacker, I needed a short that would not start to stink after a few days on trail.



These shorts are a wonderful fit and provide a great range of motion for everything from trail running to bouldering to backpacking over tussocks. I've been so so thrilled with them!



I'm about 140#, 5'6",and usually about an 8 in jeans. The medium short fit perfectly

Cute shorts!

    I was really excited about these so I ordered two colors, but once they arrived I was disappointed at length and feel, not comfortable unfortunately.

    I've been, practically, living in these shorts all summer. They are incredibly comfortable and you barely have to wash them. The magic of merino keeps them staying fresh for what, honestly, seems like forever.

    I especially love these for backpacking. I can wear only these shorts for days, and somehow still feel squeaky clean. They dry very fast, if you do get them wet.

    I use these for everything under the sun; running, hiking, biking, gardening, camping. They are genius.
