    Icebreaker has a LOT more than long johns – cool gloves, hats scarves, jackets, a few fashion-oriented pieces and more. Merino wool is super comfy on the skin and can last a long time if it’s well cared for – wash gently in cold water and dry on a rack, NOT in a dryer. Yes, I’m a big fan. It’s a nice way to treat yourself to some comfy practical clothing *and* help support the work of Active Trans.

    Where are their products made? They do not seem to be very open about that.

    At that price point, I’d expect made in the USA apparel.

    Sadly, i think the 53 extension is happening no matter the cost. I think the Illiana vote clearly displayed the quid pro quo the suburban committee members share with each other to overrule CMAP staff and the city. You vote for my expensive sprawl-inducing project, I’ll vote for yours.

    Weird how they have a whole “our supply chain” page, but no clear statement of where everything is made.,en,pg.html
