Ibex Floe Vest
A first rate vest. I run hot even on very cold days…
Fabric: wool interior, climawool softshell exterior
A first rate vest.
I run hot even on very cold days when winter mountaineering, so I am great believer in vests. This one is terrific -- does a good job of warding off the wind and snow, good breathability, very stretchy. I use this piece a lot, both in the mountains and around town.
If you are looking for something to keep you warm when standing around, this is not it. But for winter mountaineering or to cheat the wind, it is excellent.
A good purchase.
Here's what other sites are saying:
If the weather and your activities are undetermined, don't hem and haw over your attire, just slide into the Floe Vest from Ibex and layer it with your shell. Soft, comfortable New Zealand wool on the interior will keep you toasty warm, nylon and Lycra exterior sheds precipitation, and the sleeveless cut and zippered front will provide you with plenty of ventilation.
