Wool clothing continues to be a popular choice for base layer clothing. Icebreaker, out of New Zealand, has revised much of their product line with new prints, but the big news is the new AGAT Series of base layer clothing.

The GT shirts come in men's and women's style, long and short sleeve, and tank top designs. Icebreaker has designed this series with two fabric weights: 140 g/m2 and 190 g/m2. What makes the series most interesting though is the mix of solid wool and perforated wool that is intended to increase breathability. Icebreaker claims that the perforations increase overall breathability by 23% compared to similar solid wool products. Products within the series place the perforated wool in different locations: at the sides, on the back.
