Ibex Shak Jersey
The Ibex Shak is to the sweater what the Porsche is to the automobile.
Actually, the Ibex folks probably wouldn't want me calling it "sweater" at all. But that's how I use it -- as a light, warm, close-fitting, high-performance wool mid-layer. With the Shak, I don't get too hot (which I do with heavyweight sweaters, like Filson's) or too cold. I wear it over the Ibex Zephyr, which I typically use as a base layer; excellent combo.
I wish it were a little less close-fitting (if you're skinny, this will be a non-issue), but otherwise a first-rate item.
Fabric: merino wool
Price Paid: $124
Excellent fit, I'm 6'2" 195 large fits great, comfortable, roomy and warm. Merino wool is non-itchy, love it.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Forget synthetics; your grandpa knew wool was best and you'll agree once you pull on the Ibex Shak T-Neck Jersey. Dense-knit soft merino sheds water, snow and wind, breathes well and resists odors, making it the ultimate performance midlayer. A deep 11-inch zip gives you some extra ventilation for days when you're working up a sweat on the slopes.
