- PSA: Icebreaker Merino gear 60% off
fbk, have you bought much off the site in the past? Just trying to work the business out. Is it the case that they seem to offer prices before having stuff in stock, as they need to wait for suppliers to put the kit on sale? And, therefore, there’s a pretty hefty delivery time.. 🙁Posted 5 years agodruidhMember
The business model seems to be that they hold no stock, get the orders in, then acquire it from the suppliers in one fell swoop. Quite neat as they don’t end up with warehouses full of unsold stock. It does mean that they can’t handle returns though.
FWIW, I’ve bought a fair bit of stuff from them. It all turns up eventually, just a few days after the offer finishes.
Shame none of the Icebreaker tops are short-sleeved though. The last batch of 3 that I bought are on their last legs (mind you, they are now 3-4 years old).Posted 5 years agohiggoMember

Yes – I’ve ordered from them a couple of times – you order, they buy, then they ship.
I’m happy with the stuff I’ve had from them and don’t mind the wait for the prices.Posted 5 years agoDickBartonMember
I bought the Drift HD camera from them…sale ended and it reckoned a 2 week wait for estimated delivery. about 8 days in I got impatient and emailed asking if there was any update..knew I had to wait but was hoping it would be an accurate estimated delivery date. Email back saying expected date was accurate (30th April) – I emailed on 24th. Got home that night and a delivery had been attempted…picked it up next day and was the camera…Posted 5 years agoDyffersMember
Good shout, I have a few old Merino 200 long sleeves that are coming to the end of their life.
Put 2 in the basket, accepted the £5 delivery charge…then they added tax the sneaky blighters. Didn’t spot that at the start.
Not such a great deal after all, seen as the RRP would be including VAT.Posted 5 years agoCrellMember

They have a rubbish checkout page in the way they show the VAT breakdown. If you check the total they aren’t adding VAT to the published item price – the only additional bit of vat you’re paying is on the 4.99 delivery, though it certainly gives the appearance that they are now adding an additional VAT amount for the item (they aren’t, as the item price is inc VAT).
Just tot up the Subtotal and compare to the price you’re paying at the bottom.Posted 5 years ago
I have bought a Sugoi roadie waterproof and windproof jacket from them, WAAAAAAYYYY cheaper than anywhere else and they were spot on, they do still do returns so it’s just like buying anything normally however the delivery date may well be longer. It lists the probable delivery date on site.
So far I’ve been trying to refrain from buying MORE merino but they have SS women’s lightweight (150g) tops and for hols/travelling it would be ace…mmmm I may have to reconsider!Posted 5 years ago
FBK merino is the clothing of Gods I think I now have over 10 different merino wool tops, sleeveless super light weight On One, short sleeved mid and light weight from Icebreaker and embers merino, long sleeved from Fat Face and Embers Merino, thick wintery 260g jumper from Icebreaker.. all bought cheap but I LOVE the stuff!
still refrained on this deal..may have to cave 😉Posted 5 years agoBlindMelonMember
Good shout MC, don’t see the big deal about providing your email address to see the deals. Digger do you never use price comparison or insurance websites?
Sports Pursuit have always been good for anything I’ve bought and often the delivery time is quicker than expected. Can’t fault themPosted 5 years ago
