2.0 out of 5 stars Warm but Weak!, 12 Feb. 2013
Bought these a couple of years back. Fit nicely with great baselayer properties but the stitching around the fingers was rubbish.

Have had to re stitch 4 fingers now, which is just not what you'd expect from a quality company like Icebreaker.

Would seriously suggest these as liners only as they are not up to being used for any serious work or as an outerlayer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reality, not fantasy. A response to Xland., 27 Jan. 2013
Xland,

I couldn't disagree with your review more. A couple of points:

1. By your own admission you have not read the book in full, just excepts. If you had you would know that the subject matter of the book and understand the context.
2. Warts and all, it's all true. I'm not sure how you describe him as a fantasist as you barely knew him and didn't work with him at all on Herrick 6.
3. Jake was not involved in the Mortar incident. That was another soldier deployed in Now Zad where he didn't go all tour.

Among You does not take anything away from the FSTs of 19 Reg and the fantastic job they all did during an extremely tough tour. Jake describes his experiences candidly and truthfully and their effect on him in theatre and at him on his return.

It's a fantastic book and it would be more appropriate if you read the whole thing before commenting.
