Ibex "Woolie Zip T-neck" merino-wool base layerDec 31, 2012
I do a lot of outdoor activities, winter sports and cold-weather camping, so I purchased this Ibex 150 weight Woolie Zip-T to wear as a base layer, and to compare the comfort and effectiveness of merino wool with that of a silk and of a polypropylene base-layer (both of which I own and have used extensively).
I have found the smooth merino fabric very comfortable to wear next to my skin, and while I initially considered the material a bit thin when worn with just a vest on a cool day, once I added a shirt I was very comfortable (by itself, the light-weight 150 merino material doesn't do much to stop the chilling effects of a breeze so in cool or cold weather you definately need to wear someting over it), and after I reduced my outdoor activity level this merino wool base-layer remained very comfortable throughout the day (unlike polypropylene which can get and remain a bit sticky). Being able to zip this base-layer either open and closed, is also a definite plus for maintaining comfort.
Extended wear: I wore this article on mid-December campout for three days with a sweater as a midlayer and a fleece jacket as an outer layer and was very comfortable throughout that time (temperature in the 30's Fahrenheit during the day)... and although I could have changed into a spare that I had in my pack it wasnt necessary. Since that time, I have also worn this as a base along with a mid-layer vest and light shell top while cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing with the temperature in the mid-20s and have been very pleased with its comfort-performance.
Temperature range: While I was very comfortable wearing this under a sweater and fleece (no coat) during 25-30 degree weather on the recent campout and subsequent winter sport activities, I think that I would have to beef this article up with a second intermediate base-layer for colder weather... or perhaps try the 220 weight ibex base which I have not yet purchased.
I've also worn this article under a shirt for casual wear and it proved very comfortable both inside and out. The zipper top makes it very easy to regulate temperature level.
Laundering: The merino top has been easy to launder (I use Woolite on gentle cycle in the washing machine, and after the spin cycle, dry it flat on a dry towel ... it dries in about 5-6 hours although I expected it would dry a bit quicker). I've washed this item once by hand and three times in the washing machine... both ways work fine.
Would I buy this article again? Yes, I like the woolies 150 weight Zip-T enough that I have recently purchased a second one along with the bottoms. While they definitely provide a very comfortable base layer (and I'm able to remain comfortable even after several days of outdoor wear), what I like most about them is that they stay comfortably warm even when damp with perspiration and after my activity level slows down while still outside in cold weather. I have also subsequently purchased several pairs for members of my family.
Note about size: While the Ibex size XL large is a perfect fit for me (I'm 5'10" and 210 pounds and wear a size 45-Reg jacket or suit coat), I purchased one each in the large-size of these for my son and two nephews as gifts. They are all an inch or two taller than I, and all are 30-35 pounds lighter in weight (my son wears a size 40-42 jacket)... and all liked the relative close-fit of the large-sized Woolie Zip-T as compared to the definite tight-fit of the medium-sized Woolie zip-T.

Ibex service is Number 1!Nov 21, 2011
I bought this jacket and unfortunately there was a torn seam. It was coming apart. I worked with a nice individual on the phone and he was able to exchange my garment with no issues. Super freindly staff that's willing to go the extra mile to ensure customers are happy. I am a supporter of anything they produce!

I bought this as a gift for my husband's 50th birthday along with the crew top. He wears it routinely both casually and athletically, as an under layer. He has a 50 mile round trip commute by bicycle to and from work each day, and uses this top regularly as a base layer. He prefers wool due to its insulating properties when wet. He loves it! It is thin enough to fit under the other cycling specific layers he uses for cold weather commuting. He wears it as casual apparel too. It washes easily in a gentle cycle or by hand using a mild detergent, dries quickly, and holds its shape.

"love music during exercise"
I have a large number of Ibex clothing and love them all. This was a sole exception. Too tight a fit (all other Ibex large fit me fine)
(5'10'' 165 lbs.) Bordering on 'scratchy' feel, unlike all other Ibex Merino wool pieces.
