Ibex Wool Review



Hooded Indie

TAUR Testers were really impressed with the quality of Ibex wool. The Hooded Indie is an Ibex favorite and was recommended by Ibex for our TAUR Test. Not only is this Merino wool soft and comfortable, it is strong and very durable. We used this for chilly fall days in the mountains with no problems. The snug fit, thumbholes, warm high chin guard and hood were perfect for keeping warm on those chilly days. Throw this on as a layer on under a shell and you will be ready for a much more rugged winter run.  The Hooded Indie will be a staple in your winter arsenal for years.

All Day T

Ibex’s lightest weight Merino tee, the All Day T was a nice change from the standard technical race tee. Our testers really liked the simplicity of having a wear to work, or around town shirt, easily transform to a rugged and durable mountain running shirt. To date this shirt has not shown any wear, and yet one of the testers wives has washed it more then 25 times.  If you are planning to get a wool t-shirt, why not one that adds versatility, functionality and ascetic appeal.
