Welcome to IBEX
This is the Men's Altas jacket in merino wool - but not any merino. My next purcahse from this very committed co. You've got to read about this material to believe it. It's all true and as my budget will allow I will add to my vest and jacket from Ibex. Yes, you need to keep some shells and other gear, but 9 of 10 times these products will keep you toasty in windy and still chills, not too warm when sun shows. Read the info on the site. The palette is very urban as well which helps me blend in to the downtown masses and not always be in black.
I'm a relative newcomer to the whole outdoor clothing thing, but have found a new love for Ibex. I think their stuff is much more well made than NorthFace, LL Bean, or some of the others. I think they are the most simple and stylish as well. Their clothes are always form fitting, have a good choice of colors, and wear well over time. I'm a true Ibex fan.
