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.

Excellent fit, I'm 6'2" 195 large fits great, comfortable, roomy and warm. Merino wool is non-itchy, love it.
