Palin's Icebreaker Pose

Not only can former Governor Sarah Palin see Russia, but apparently she can see New Zealand, too. That’s according to Icebreaker, the New Zealand-based wool clothing maker who released a press statement this morning about Palin appearing on the cover of the Nov. 23 Newsweek magazine wearing Icebreaker’s Long Sleeve Chase Zip.

Icebreaker states it’s the first major U.S. magazine cover to feature the small apparel company’s product. In the statement, the company wrote “It’s great Ms. Palin has discovered the benefits of running in natural, sustainable Icebreaker merino, which doesn’t hold odor like synthetic running tops (made from oil). As opposed to the ‘Drill Baby Drill’ mantra of the last U.S. election cycle, Icebreaker has been campaigning for consumers to switch from synthetic running tops made from oil.”

If you want to look like Sarah — or just like a good running top made from a fine wool — the Long Sleeve Chase is for sale at for $99.

Does that Icebreaker running top come in blue?

Is it bad then that they label her a “problem”?

Unfortunately, she did not pose, it is a “photoshoped” image

It’s not a photoshopped photo; it’s from a shoot she did for Runner’s World a few months ago.

1. Old Photo, see comment 4.
2. Sexist? She’s the one that agreed to wear the hot pants. DUH.
3. I think I’ll be unsubscribing from your email updates now. Very disgusted by the fact that you are plugging ANYTHING associated with the “Palin”. Disappointed with Gear Junkie, VERY disappointed. Have fun pandering to the conservatives.

Wow, insan art you are quite the radical nut bag. Gear Junkie is just a regular guy making a living – geez, it’s just politics

Please Stephen, the broad is wearing pantyhose with her “hot” pants. I haven’t seen this fashion take since the pre-Reagan 70’s. Come to think of it, that’s just about right for this gal’s politics of the absurd.

Let your readers in on your satire? or we have no choice but to regard you as a corporate sell-out.

Too bad she couldn’t been in garments from a US manufacturer like, IBEX.

I’m a big fan of Icebreaker, as well as, Sarah Palin, AND Gear Junkie. Those are shorts not ‘hot pants’ and she’s not tall enough to pull off hot pants. It looks to me like she has oil on her legs not hose.

Love the top! Icebreaker seems softer to me than Ibex, and more stylish. I wear both.

not that I have to shout out that I’m a generally liberal-thinking person, but insan_art is kinda quick to judge that everyone on here would be like-minded. Also, how is an article like this pandering to ANYONE? (except perhaps Icebreaker for some PR spreading)

No mention of the Blackberry?
Why is she holding it – or is it two of them? Weird. If I had her money, I’d wear fancy duds too – maybe even short shorts? I would not oil my legs though, as I draw the line at shaving them. Comments are fun, eh, JPea?
