Our machine washable bouclé is made from New Zealand merino wool/polyester blend. It is double-knit with a smooth knit on the inside and looped knit on the outside. The looping produces an insulative, warmth-trapping environment when worn with a top layer. The smooth side glides over lighter layers. Ibex bouclé is a great midlayer or outerlayer, depending on conditions. Machine washable.

How Do I Determine My Size?

We recommend a general body measurement guide to determine your size in Ibex clothing. This sizing chart is not garment specific, but in fact a body measurement chart. Here are some helpful hints when measuring:

Bust/Chest: relax arms at sides, keeping the tape parallel to the floor, measure the fullest part of your bust/chest
Waist: keeping the measuring tape comfortably loose, measure around your natural waistline
Hips: standing with heels together, keep the tape straight and parallel to the floor, measure around the fullest part of hips
Sleeve Length: a 3-point measurement, standing with arms relaxed and slightly bent at sides, measure from the base of the neck to the shoulder and then from the shoulder to the wrist bone, add together measurements
Form-fit: garment designed to fit snug to the body throughout
Semi-fit: garment will be contoured to the body
Regular-fit: garment will not be slim, but also not oversized
Relaxed-fit: garment drapes loosely on body

Great product, I would again.
Loved the product but two items I purchased were not true to the color represented on the internet. Fortunately, what I got was acceptable.

I own several so I may be biased...
Extreme versatility; can go from the office to the mountains and back to camp without a hitch. I own several and wear them constantly from Fall to Spring. The Scout vest is also a winner ! Though not inexpensive, Ibex products are a great value. Well made, high quality materials that do not itch or stink (like synthetics). Give them a will not be disappointed. Thanks for making gre

Soft, comfortable, warm
[...] I bought it for myself instead and LOVE it! It is closer to a woman's L so it is a bit big for me (I normally wear an Ibex M) but pleasantly roomy and comfortable. I can layer underneath with plenty of space while retaining the ability to move OR wear it just with a tank - either way it looks great. I use it every weekend out on the boat in Whittier, AK, while fishing and shrimping and it ha

Its a great piece, made in the US and it works great under a shell or out to dinner with my wife.

I love my Scout!!
I own blue, orange, and now the grey one - I have been wearing the Scout for 5 or more years, and I love 'em - warm and versatile, they are my go to layer for cool to cold weather - both at play and at work. I have also given them as gifts to both of my sons and they love them too!

great sweater
This is a great sweater. I now own two of them. I have worn my first one so much that my wife told me to buy another one just so she could see a different color on me.

So good, I bought a second one
I love the Scout half-zip so much, I bought a second one! It's machine-washable (turn it inside-out before washing for best results) and can be worn for weeks between washings without accumulating dirt or odor. It's my favorite piece of clothing -- with the Ibex Indie Crew being a close second!

Predictable favorite
I love this Scout top so much that I've accumulated 4 over the past several years. Scout regulates tempeture, resists/repels rain, stains, stink and animal fur and remains presentable after years of use. Ibex has turned me into an avid Scout and Pez hoarder. Ssshhhhh - let's keep Ibex our fashion/functionality secret

Can't beat it
I wear this at work, out to dinner, relaxing on the weekend and skiing. Basically, I can wear this sweater anywhere! Nice and soft on the inside, great temperature regulation and tougher than I though it would be. One of my favorite pieces of clothing.

Great overall versatility
I've had this sweater for a couple of years now and must admit that it is one of the most versatile pieces that I own. It looks good enough to go and teach P.E. in and it works well enough to take snowshoeing. Great as a stand alone once you warm up or as a layering piece.
