This is another phenom piece of Ibex gear. It never stinks, it never rides up, hasn't piled, regulatets temps great. I haven't checked the durability of it too much cause it hasn't been warmer than 25 here for months and I've only worn it as a baselayer and not an outer, but if its like any other Ibex, it'll rock. One quazi complaint: it is very hard for me to zip the zipper all the way. I'm 6' & 150 lbs. I don't have a linebacker neck, yet it is not easy to zip it all the way up, and when I do, its tight on my throat. No matter, I'll zip the next layer. But it'd be nice to have a slightly larger neck. Also, it isn't the most insulating. NTS mid is definitely the way to go in real cold temps.
Having been somewhat disappointed with the massive amount of pilling on my Smartwool NTS I decided to give Ibex a shot. The first time I put it on, I already knew I would love it. It's like hugs all over my body...and who doesn't love those. It fit perfectly for a base layer, not overly tight, no dead space, and just comfy overall. Scratchy? I have not had any problems, pilling...nope. Durability, I don't know if it will hold up to a whipper on some rocks, but I am sure it will. What's great about it is that its built athletically. I have long arms and its perfect. All I have to say is...hell yeah to this guy.
this has been a great multi-purpose long sleeve for me. it's great for winter running. but i think i've worn it most for ski mountaineering. solid piece. had i not just tested the "natural antimicrobial properties" of wool i would have thought that was BS. however, this weekend i ski toured saturday and soaked the shirt to the bone. then woke up on sunday and put it back on for running.. and really, it didn't stink AT ALL. kind of amazing.the only knock on this shirt is that it could be more durable... but that is what you get with a lightweight shirt i suppose.
I have this and the matching pants. It is always my go-to baselayer. It handles heat and moisture better than any of my synthetics, but it's most redeeming factor is found in merino wool's ability to handle odor in ways synthetics normally can't. I use this baselayer for ice climbing, skiing and winter backpacking. It's comfortable (not scratchy at all) and non-restrictive, even though it's not a loose fit. I can't say enough times how impressed I am with this product.
I haven't been able to put this to the test in the field yet due to a deployment, but i'd say a deployment is just as demanding on gear as field use. This is the perfect first layer. Never excessively warm. VERY comfortable. Thought the high collar with zipper would bother my neck but didn't even NOTICE. Don't expect to wear this alone as your warmth layer in freezing temps. I wear it day and night.
Amazing top. It does a great job by itself into the 50s, then I add an extra layer if it gets any colder. It's form fitting, and stays that way even after several runs. As with all merino products, it keeps me dry. The sleeves are a good length, and the zipper doesn't dig into the skin like others do. I'm 5'11" 185lbs. and the medium fits tight the way a baselayer should.
I wear it skiing every cold day and thruout the cold weather. Perfect weight for -10F or above. I'm never hot or cold in this, perfect tempratrature regulation in the lodge or on the lift. Ibex is the best in merino wool quality. Very stylish.
These 2 shirts are now about 8 years old and show no wear.
Skiing, cooling my heels in the cold, this is merino luxury. Whether on the ski lift or in the lodge at Aspen you'll be best dressed and comfortable all day. Worn this for 6 years and still good as new. Even wear it as a sweater at times.
I have had many wool pieces before but now have been as comfortable and lasted as long as my Woolies have!! This garment feature a uniques rib knit to it that allows it to conform to your body and offer an amazing fit.
this shirt doesn't smell no matter what, i can go a week of training hard in it every day, and it will still smell alright at the end when i finally get around to cleaning it...breathes great, perfect baselayer
I was really surprised when I got this piece. I love merino and have pieces from most of the other manufacturers. I've heard great things about Ibex but was really disappointed. The merino is soft but the knit of the garmet makes it feel really rough...totally defeating the purpose (and price!) of merino. Super skin-tight fit. It will keep you warm and handle perspiration well, but for my money I'm going for something softer.
