    Yes! I found one from north face! It's got a fleece interior and an outer layer that's wind proof and water proof

    Sure. Can't provide a link since I'm on my phone but go to zappos.com and type in TAYA JACKET by NORTH FACE.

    I'm bummed they're out of the black one in M but the rest are still available!

    Not sure if the sale is still on, but for folks here in Toronto there's a store called Higher Ground at Yonge & Eg that has all Icebreaker 50% off. Got an email about it last week.

    Can you only buy at their local store or am I missing something on their website?

    I don't think that have any e-commerce; purely brick and mortar.

    I ended up getting a grey mountain hardware monkey fleece, it's sleeker than a regular 200 weight fleece, softer than soft and should be very warm. I will wear a shell/rain jacket over this when colder or raining.

    I am always amazed at how people don't seem to plan for security at the airport. I wear no belt, jacket, or keep anything in my pockets. I wear flip flops instead of shoes and my cell phone, Carbon Fiber Designs - Koolstof Carbon Fiber Money Clip, and headphones go in my pack ahead of time. I keep my liquids at the top of my bag so they are easy to pull out with my computer (if I am carrying it). Once I wait for all the other travelers to take off their jewelry, belts, laced shoes, jackets, etc. etc. etc. - I zip right through.

    By the way, do you know how many terrorists have been caught by the TSA in the 12 years since 911?

    Good on ya! Not only do you breeze through but it speeds up the process for everyone else.

    BTW, the answer is zero!

    It is a warm, soft and sleek jacket. I used it when I travelled to the back woods of Maine and on my visit to the Pocono's in PA. There is one major flaw, it sheds all over and you can see where clumps have fallen out in the low back! I am bummed!!! I will be retuning it. My search for the perfect fleece jacket continues.
