The jacket seems pretty nice. It is a lot like the Cloudveil Serendipity Jacket, except it uses wool. The wool was not as soft to the touch as advertised. Still has that scratchy feeling. It is made better than the Serendipity Jacket, the cut and fit are near the same. If you can get the jacket for under a $150 buy it, if not stick with an old wool shirt.
Jacket made in China, slave labor.

Insulative, lightweight and unmatched in regulating core temperature, the Ibex Neve Jacket, made from Climawool softshell, is built for the backcountry. Zippered handwarmer pockets do double duty as frontal core vents. The Neve has 2 internal pockets (one oversized mesh and one secure zippered) and a zippered stow pocket on sleeve. Draw cords at bottom hem and neck seal out the cold. Adjustable, 1/2 elastic adjustable closure sleeve cuffs batten down the hatches there. The full-length water-resistant zipper features an internal wind flap. Vendor

Fitted for technical layering the Ibex Neve Jacket hides plenty of extra features beneath its streamlined and simplified exterior. Inside you'll find mesh storage pockets, adjustments along the neck and hem, and even a iPod pocket with headphone wire port. It's a superb alternative to overstuffed and potentially-stifling polyester fleece. The soft wool lining enhances the breathable vapor transfer properties better than some microfleece linings--a quality you'll appreciate whenever you're grinding up frozen switchbacks and steep snow-covered hills.
