@jeff and others, There's a discussion about Charlie's Soap in the middle of @dmilem's 2011 thread, A Family of Seven (plus one) Takes Tom to Boston. Towards the end of the first web page, the discussion veered towards smart wool and laundry, and @Lani gave a lengthy description and recommendation of Charlie's Soap. There may be a few more references to this product in a few travel laundry soap discussions. I think you can also do a. Google search to find a discussion of this product at Lani's travelite blog, since she recommends carrying a small amount of the powder in a small sealable plastic bag.

FWIW I found this product locally when I happened to see it while walking past a small store called "Baby Awearness".
I guess that I'm now also on the Ibex mailing list, but I haven't bought any other items yet.

Reason: Added thread and post links for Charlie's Soap
I usually get my Icebreaker stuff from Sierra Trading Post. Most of it seems to hover around 30% off but then if you sign up for their emails you get coupons that entitle you to an additional (usually) 30-45% off. So it becomes almost reasonable! Right now I have my eye on a top that's $43, marked down from $100.

FYI, if anyone is shopping the ICebreaker sale and can't find your size online, try calling a store. I had good luck today with a pair of shorts I wanted.
Also, my Ibex tee arrived today! The W's Sol tee is very similar to my scoop-neck Tech-T, except that it is seamless at the sleeves. It fits much the same way, fitted, but not too snug. The Ibex tee is about 3 inches longer but I haven't washed it yet so I can't say whether it will lose some length. Otherwise, pretty comparable, so I'd go with whichever color/style/sale is preferable.
