The Ibex Promise
This half-zip, semi-fit hoody is a rock star piece, a crowd favorite year after year. Why? Because the scuba hood fits cleanly under a climbing or ski helmet. The thumbholes keep the dreaded sleeve inch-up at bay. The raglan sleeves offer the mobility and comfort needed to make the most of wool’s natural properties. Choose the Hooded Indie for a wildly functional piece in a versatile mid-weight design.

Finely tuned 18.5 micron New Zealand Merino at 195g/m2. We designed this fabric from the need of a weight in-between our Woolies at 150g/m2 and our Zepher at 230g/m2. The weight of the fabric resembles that of a high quality t-shirt. It works well worn next to skin as a baselayer or on it's own. 100% Merino Wool

Picked this hoodie for base layer running, cycling, and hiking. Mostly for fall/spring but will try it out for early mornings or late evening runs/hunts.

Light in weight. Good for hiking/camping. Want to wear on Camino de Santiago next year.

I had the Nomad full zip hoodie and wore it all the time. Since that is currently not available I have chosen to try this.

Is this hood good under a helmet?
Evan K on Apr 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This hood is awesome under a helmet. It breathes perfectly and keeps the chill off the neck area. I've used it when it's 20 degrees or colder and have been very comfortable and happy. I own 4 of these gems and it is my only base layer for downhill skiing in Anchorage, Alaska.
Does it provide UV Sun Protection?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I purchased my Md Hooded Indie this winter and love it as a base layer and mid layer. It kept me warm and cozy on a winter hiking weekend in the White Mountains. Durning a recent trip to Utah, it did provide some sun protection while hiking, no sun burn on my arms or trunk after a 6 hr hike at higher elevations.

Excellent layer
I love hoodies and to have a lightweight wool layer with a hoodie is a dream come true. I spend everyday outdoors and I have used this daily from the day I received it. Everything from Mountain biking to hiking. The best use will be backcountry skiing to the huts and teaching avalanche classes this winter.

The fit is looser which is perfect. I could wear another layer underneath if I wanted o

Perfect Piece
I got the previous year's hooded indie in brown and I really love it. The thumbholes function perfectly and show no signs of wearing out. I wear this constantly for two weeks or so and I wash it. I actually machine wash this baby warm and tumble dry HOT and it has not shrank a bit, so take a deep breath and toss it in the dryer.

I'm 6'1" 165lbs (read lanky/longish torso and arms) and the Large fi

Comfy, warm, be a sheep for a day!
No stink (as of yet), compared to my 6 year old synthetic underwear. Much warmer, and has all the features requisite for a layer your life could depend on in an alpine assault: thumb loops, hood, 1/4 length front zipper for ventilation, and it's low enough to tuck into long-johns. Also, the wool is very soft.

A solid piece that is helping me grin through the Montana winter.

Repeat customer
I wore my last one out and I think it's the ultimate compliment when you wear something out and buy another of the same thing. As a light baselayer it really can't get much better. I like the long torso length (always stays tucked in), sleeve length in combination with the thumb loops means that a good chunk of your hand is covered even when you're pulling gloves on, and the hood provides coverage

Stylish, comfortable hooded indie
I bought this on sale for our 13 yr old son , hoping I can wear it after he grows. It is stylish and comfortable. For warmth, he layers over a long sleeved t-shirt. I could wear this year round. We love the darker green color too with contrasting grey trim.

perfect layering
really great layering piece that works better than I thought it would "on it's own". the cut and style are pretty cool and the tight hood with thumb-loops add to the technical appeal. great piece that I thought i would really like and ended up loving.

My favorite shirt
I love traveling in this shirt. Regulates body temperature from town, to airplane, to destination.

Great Cycling Gear
The hood works well on colder mornings under my bike helmet -- without being too tight, since the material is both thin enough and warm -- and then as the weather warms up, easy to just flip the hood off. Plus the zipper makes for greater temperature variation as I sweat and cool down.
