    Buying Isaora at retail is a huge mistake, all there garments go on sale every season at 40%+

    Speaking of ISAORA, their IO line wasnt included in the sale today which said entire collection. I guess IO is a whole other thing. I have a jacked from the IO line which I like a lot.


    Share whatcha bought at least! What you get and how you like it?

    their black friday code only covered what they call the isaora collection (main line) which is separate from io (basics range).

    I got the gray 3l technical shell, two of the io insulated shackets, and io sweats in black.

    thanks for the tips guys. If I end up keeping the stuff I'll message them begging mercy on my soul and ask for a retroactive discount ;)

    Didn't a lot of people complain about the Isaora pants falling apart?

    Fwiw you will only get 40% off the tech shell. The IO was excluded from all sales.

    Sad, but true. Isaora always gets discounted so heavily. I've seen some of their stockists go as deep as 80% on decent looking stuff.

    There's a few pieces I'm waiting on too. Need some warm gear for the next snowboarding season :D

    everyone shut up, no need to blow our spot :p

    Buy their IO stuff at MSRP, good price and worth it.

    ^ Yea surprising the iO stuff is priced very reasonably for 100% merino. Uncharacteristic of Isaora

    Does anybody own one of the zip hoody's from Isaora's iO line?
    Like this one? http://www.isaora.com/collections/isaora-io-all/products/hoodie-indigo

    Or the crew neck? http://www.isaora.com/collections/isaora-io-all/products/crewneck-sweatshirt-heathergrey

    How are they? I want an easy jacket but haven't found anything I like, so now I'm just looking at zip hoody's but want to try something other than Reigning Champ for a change.
    Am I right to assume there's no "technical" fabrics in the iO range? If I'm in the cold, it will be cold. And If I'm in the rain, I will get wet. Correct?
    Aside from that, are they comfy? fit well?

    been thinking of copping a few of the merino tees but wonder what's the quality like for io is there much difference compared to their main collection?

    OccultVexillum although merino wool is not your typical technical fabric, it's probably the best natural technical fabric you can get.

    it'll help to keep you warm in colder climates and cool in warm weather, resists smells, wicks away sweat from the body and dries quickly especially when compared to cotton.

    Right, I understand that. I was talking more along the lines of having no waterproof coating or anything like that.
    Do you have one? Are they comfortable?

    I'm getting a merino t tomorrow, can compare to Outlier. I have the fleece zip from the IO line and I like it a lot, gotten tons of compliments on it.


    Code doesn't work on IO as said before.
