I have several womens shaks so bought one for my husband last xmass. It has held up well, no holes compard to a similar icebreaker piece. It is warm and versatile. It is a good midlayer in cold weather and outerlayer in milder winter weather. Works for skiing, biking, or an urban professional look. Its pricey but if u can snag it on sale well worth the price and washes well. I machine wash delicate and rack dry.

The Shak Jersey is equally at home on the ski slope and out on the town afterwards. Great as a mid to heavyweight layer on the slopes, with a style and look (and odor resistance) that makes it a no-brainer to wear around town afterwards. I fell hard for the jersey and have already purchased two within the last two months. The craftsmanship appears to be good and I expect the jerseys to be a durable, long lasting staple of my ski wardrobe. I also anticipate that I will be wearing the jerseys around my home town on cold weekend days and nights. Even though the sizing chart indicated that a Large would be best for my size (chest - 42", arm length - 36"), the jersey fits on the tight side, so I bought the X-Large which will allow me to comfortably layer underneath it (the X-Large sleeve is a bit long, but not by a lot). Its only a matter of time until I purchase jersey #3!

Perfect for a mid-layer, or top
Very impressed with the comfort and warmth. I'm 180 lbs and 5 foot 11. Large fits very well, especially through the torso and in length, but arms are just a little snug. I've been usuing it around the house on cold days, at work on casual Fridays, and for outdoor strenuous activiity like hiking and chopping wood--it works for everything! I'm looking forward to buying another.

Shak of Many Trades
The Ibex Shak Jersey is a top quality mid-layer. As others have mentioned, Ibex quality is superb. The Shak has the quality of an old school ski sweater, combined with an updated fabric and fit. The fit of the Shak is athletic -long and lean. Combined with a Goldilocks fabric weight, this make the Shak just about perfect as a mid-layer for any cool to cold weather activity. It also looks nice enough for casual wear, the perfect Stealth-Tech piece.

Great stretch in the fabric. Also love that it is several inches longer in the back. Weave is just the right thinkness and feels great as a casual shirt or for more rigorous activities.
