U-Sixty T

rated 5 of 5 stars My absolute favorite hiking shirt. About eleven years ago, I became a convert to merino wool shirts for hiking. At the time, I found most synthetic shirts to be less than comfortable. They felt hot and sticky and plasticky (is that even a word?), and not that pleasant to wear. When I ran across a Smartwool T on sale, I got one and tried it out, and was hooked. The Ibex U-Sixty T-shirt has become my absolute favorite. The feel is super soft and light, with excellent temperature control. It feels… Full review

Nomad Full Zip Hoody

rated 4 of 5 stars Love that cozy merino and great fit, but zipper really sucks. I love merino wool hoodies.  I have an Ibex Nomad, a Smartwool Phd, a Minus33 Kodiak, and an Ibex Aire.  My favorites are the Ibex Nomad and the Ibex Aire.  I haven't come across an Icebeaker model that suits me at a decent price point (all my others are ebay or sale purchases). Each has its own particular use. For backpacking it has to be the Nomad. I particularly enjoy the non-itchy, warm, comfy feel of the brushed merino wool close… Full review

Nomad Full Zip Hoody

rated 4 of 5 stars A warm and low-profile insulating layer for active pursuits. It has the benefits of the warmth, versatility, and odor resistance of merino wool, for those looking for an all-natural mid-insulating layer that can deal with moisture. (It does not wick moisture as well as synthetics, though). The hood and other features are welcome in this jacket. Fit might be an issue for some. This runs narrow and can be at risk of shrinkage after laundering. You can thank Ibex for this 100% merino full-zip hoody. Full review

Zepher Skull Cap

rated 4 of 5 stars A comfortable merino wool hat that will become your new favorite hat within a few minutes of wearing it. Definitely worth spending a few bucks on (though mine was a prize). So I have a SERIOUS PROBLEM with this hat....pretty soon it's going to be too warm to wear it all the time. This merino wool hat is phenomenally comfortable and comforting. I've been home sick all day today. The house has been cold, and I've been in my jammies and Ibex Zepher Skull Cap the entire time. Aside from pulling nursing… Full review

Wool Aire Sweater

rated 5 of 5 stars The Ibex Wool-Aire Sweater is a lightweight jacket made of lofted wool encased in water resistant nylon fabric. I wear this jacket year round. I like it best as a camp jacket after a day on a bicycle tour, but I can also wear it while riding when the temps drop. Best of all, if it rains, because it is wool, it still keeps me nice and toasty warm even if it gets wet. The Ibex Wool-Aire Sweater is one of my favorite pieces of clothing. Because the nylon shell is filled with lofted wool, it keeps me… Full review
