• Please note that all the info provided refers to body measurements, and NOT the dimensions of the garment.
• If your body measurements are midway between two sizes, go to the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit.
• If your body measurements result in different sizes, Icebreaker recommends using your chest measurement for tops and your hip measurement for pants.
HOW TO MEASURE:
Chest - Place the measuring tape around the fullest part of your chest.
Waist - Place the measuring tape at your natural waist, which is the narrowest point on your torso.
Hips - Place the measuring tape around the fullest point on your hips.

Slim Fit - A snug, close-to-the-body fit for low-bulk layering.
Regular Fit - A fit that is neither snug nor loose. Garments with this fit can be worn solo or over other layers.
Relaxed Fit - Loose-fitting lightweight layers. Ideal for more casual use.

Great natural fiber goodnessIcebreaker has made a move into outdoor gear and this mid layer is a great example of it. There is a bit of nylon and elastane for stretch... Balaclava hood with a great media pocket. I'm a 37 chest,165 lbs, 6'2".... Small fit great.
I have never bought an icebreaker -- will it be good to wear this in winter in general (in Montreal) ? Is it a good idea to buy this instead of a heavy jacket -- I am planning to wear this inside of a cotton jacket.

The Icebreaker Atom LS Zip Hoody is considered an insulation or mid layer. While everyone has a different opinion about how cold is too cold which should be taken into consideration, the rule of thumb when layering is that you should include 3 layers:
1. A base layer which sits nearest to your skin and helps regulate your body temp by wicking moisture away from the body. Cotton should be avoided.
2. The insulating or mid layer which helps you retain heat by trapping air close to your body. Goose down is best for very cold conditions. Fleece comes in light/mid/expedition weights depending on your activity level and climate temps. For high-energy activities choose lightweight fleece so you don't overheat. Again, cotton should be avoided.
3. The shell or outer layer which is used for weather protection against the wind, rain or snow.
I hope this helps you out!
