Truly a winter favorite
I saw this vest when I was ordering an Ibex pullover for my husband. We are both Arcteryx fans but were anxious to try Ibex because it is made in America. I decided to add the vest to my shopping cart and I am so glad I did. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it. It is extremely light and comfortable, yet provides excellent warmth. I have hardly had it off since it arrived and it is wearing well. If you plan to wear over a sweater or heavy T-shirt, I would order a size larger. I ended up returning my small for a medium (I wear a size 4 - 6) to have more flexibility with my under layer. As the product review states - this will become your winter favorite!

I love this vest. it fits true to size. I am usually about a 4 and the small fits perfectly. If you have a significant chest, you may need to size up. I tried a medium as well and it fit too, but was just a little bigger and felt a little boxier. It fits very similar to my North Face windwall vest only it can be dressed up. Ibex is just the best!! and made in America!

I bought this vest for my Mother, and she loves it!. she's had it for a while now and uses it all the time. She says it is the most comfortable vest ever!. It is very well made, as are most Ibex products. she lives in the Santa Barbra area and uses it for walking the dog in the beach, hiking, and Gardening. All she needs is this vest and a med. weight long sleeve t-shirt,and she able to combat the occasional 50 degree ish weather in her area. she is 5'2 120 lbs. and i got her the red heather in med. fits great, looks great.

Great all around vest - Trail or Street
My wife has several of these vests and loves their flexibility to go from trail to street. The design of the vest doesn't say "trail-gear", that's why they work so well as a fashionable piece of clothing too. Ibex's wool is also a great looking fabric, and provides both comfort and warmth. Sizing is true, fit is comfortable. Construction quality is meticulous.
