Review: Icebreaker Anatomica Brief – Emporer/Spark

Item Reviewed: Icebreaker Anatomica Brief [Emporer/Spark]

About the product: Icebreaker’s Anatomica Brief is a low-rise, full coverage brief made from 96% merino wool with 4% lycra for stretch. This brief is made with wool ethically harvested from merino sheep for its softness, odor resistance and lightweight breathability. The closed contour pouch has an innovative design, with a seam that shifts to the left to follow your body’s anatomy. The color is purple with orange elasticized waistband and contrast stitching. There is also a silver logo tag sewn to the back of the brief. The Icebreaker Anatomica Brief also comes in black and is available in sizes S – XXL.

What we like: Icebreaker’s “Emporer/Spark” color combo is brilliant; the orange and purple are a fun, unexpected pop of color. This brief makes you rethink wool. The merino wool fabric is so soft and lightweight; it’s an absolute pleasure to wear. The anatomical pouch is well-thought out from a design perspective, but it also gives an interesting, unexpected detail to the brief. Icebreaker’s commitment to the environment and the ethical treatment of their flock is also admirable.

What we don’t like: You can’t toss this pair in the dryer, so it’s a bit of extra effort to try, but the lightweight fabric dries relatively quickly.

When we’d wear them: A cute, unusual option for a first date. Out to the gym for a workout.

Who we’d recommend them to: Perfect for the active guy who likes a little innovation and a pop of color.

In three words: Bright. Cute. Sheepish.
