great for moderate climate
Visited New Zealand last year and saw a number of outdoor wear items made of similar wool fabric that were very popular. Have worn various polar fleece vests for a number of years and have been looking for a slightly classier version - found it. Very well made and top notch looks. The front chest zipper pocket has become a must have for the glasses. Slightly less warm than the polar fleece and that works very well in the Bay Area. Has quickly become my go to choice except on those days that winter wins (very few this year thus far, thus the choice most days). Runs small so I had to exchange for the next size up. Only question is the slightly shorter garment length than the fleece vests but chalk that up to the sweater based concept. If they come up with a long, I will buy another.

The men's Scout Vest is great product. The vest runs small and armholes are a bit small but nevertheless the material is great and the quality of workmanship excellent.

The Ibex Scout Vest is a great product. I have purchased merino wool items from other companies , but this vest is much better constructed. I am 5" 11" and weigh 160 pounds and the medium is a good fit. The fabric is very soft but wears like iron. It also works well under a coat as an additional layer of warmth. I will be buying more Ibex clothing soon.

Ibex - totally reliable quality
We have a few different Ibex Vests. The Scout is soft and warm, with a great fit that is not at all bulky. Offers great warmth for it's light weight.

A bit boxy but otherwise perfect!
It's a bit unfair to be complaining that the vest it a bit boxy as it's being worn by someone who's 6'3" and 160, so everything is boxy on said person. That said, the quality of the fabric is excellent, as is the construction. The vest (in the light grey color) looks wonderful. The pockets are well placed. Said person is wearing the large, and my only wishes were that it was a smidge longer and a smidge narrower.
