Aerobic activity is about efficiency. Burn too much energy, too soon and the day gets a lot longer. The Breakaway 2 jacket keeps a body at its most efficient, not too warm but protected from the cold. The secret is Climawool, a four-way stretch wool blend. (Think magic sheep.) Details like articulated elbows, reflective logo racing stripe and a cavernous back pocket make this one of our most technical pieces, though it remains understated so you can snag a post-workout coffee without feeling like a NASCAR driver. (Unless you are a NASCAR driver.)

All About The Wool
Wool Type +
The same combination of fibers a the Climawool Lite (nylon, wool, Lycra®) only the nylon on this fabric is the stronger Cordura. The fabric is double woven and a bit tighter. It's built not only for high performance but also for increased durability and warmth for those activities that take you to harsher conditions. Machine washable.
Benefits of Wool
Wool garments offer substantially more protection from UV exposure than traditional summer fabrics, like cotton.
Wool draws moisture away from the skin and evaporates moisture, regulating body temperature in all conditions.
Ibex wool products naturally include antimicrobial properties, keeping your garment odor-free.
Wool fights off weather and dirt and prevents stains, making Ibex easy to wash and easy to keep clean.
Because Ibex is made from very small micron diameter fibers, our garments are extremely soft and comfortable.
The craftspeople who are involved in every step of the process–from the sheep, to the spinners, to the sewers–are carefully hand-selected.
Because we use wool–a natural and renewable fiber– Ibex is good for you and good for the Earth.
Ibex wool garments resist heat. They don’t hold a flame and won’t melt like synthetic fabrics and fibers.
We recommend a general body measurement guide to determine your size in Ibex clothing. This sizing chart is not garment specific, but in fact a body measurement chart. Here are some helpful hints when measuring:
Bust/Chest: relax arms at sides, keeping the tape parallel to the floor, measure the fullest part of your bust/chest
Waist: keeping the measuring tape comfortably loose, measure around your natural waistline
Hips: standing with heels together, keep the tape straight and parallel to the floor, measure around the fullest part of hips
Sleeve Length: a 3-point measurement, standing with arms relaxed and slightly bent at sides, measure from the base of the neck to the shoulder and then from the shoulder to the wrist bone, add together measurements
Form-fit: garment designed to fit snug to the body throughout
Semi-fit: garment will be contoured to the body
Regular-fit: garment will not be slim, but also not oversized
Relaxed-fit: garment drapes loosely on body

This jacket, while expensive, even on sale, is worth it. Again, Ibex has nailed it with a simple, functional and well thought out design. The simplicity of this jacket, with all the features you want/need - one large back pocket, small chest pocket w/ audio port, and reflective accents are really it's best features. Less really is more. And the fabric - the Climawool...what can I say, it works
Plan to wear this jacekt for morning runs in cool weather. The jacket fits nicely except the sleeves is just a bit too long but i guess its OK if you are riding a bike where your arms are extended. Very nice sharpe looking jacet. The chest pocket is great and the back pouch is handy. Very well made.
This jacket excels at cool weather cycling and running. Nearly windproof on the front with great breathability from the back. Full zip increases venting options. Only somewhat bad thing to say is "Don't stand still with your back to the wind, after a run". The rear of the jacket is very receptive to cool wind. Just keep moving forward!. Lead the way!!!!!
This jacket performs well in a broad band of temps, light freezing rain and light snow. The back side is very breathable as the other reviewers note but its not a deal-breaker because this jacket is made for MOVING.
It has replaced my old stinky patagonia lined shell of 14 yrs as my favorite for sub-zero to mid-30's winter wear. I've been skate skiing in it recently at about 7-15 degrees with 2 l
Just did a 3 day road ride near Banff and experienced temps from freezing to 65�. The breakaway jkt was warm when needed and breathed well when temps rose. Also like that wool doesn't stink like synthetics. The only negative was chest pocket bonding started to delaminate; stitching would be more durable.
Just got this product and have cross country skied two times with it in - 8� C. Great temperature control, very very comfortable, Schoeller fabric works great. The merino backing and inner arms allow just enough cooling in aerobic activities. Have not jogged with it yet though. Minor gripes : would have liked a reflective stripe on the right arm for jogging towards oncoming traffic and the arms
Bought on recommendation from another rider and used in the cold weather and cooler windy weather for biking. It does an excellent job of reducing the wind without an unbreathable nylon shell and breathes a bit when needed. I would prefer just a bit more reflective material in the back, perhaps a bit larger symbol or a simple stripe at some point without being too blatant.
I've been using this jacket for skiing and running in cold weather (0 F to -25 F). I've found that, although the jacket is warm, rather than wicking sweat to the outside where it can evaporate, the jacket becomes saturated. After about an hour you are left with a wet, heavy jacket. I've also experienced some icing on the inside, which the salesperson at the store where I purchased the jacket as
