The Ibex Promise
The Hooded Indie blurs the line between get-outside-and-move gear and casual street style. We find ourselves wearing it as often after work and on weekends as when we’re playing outside. Semi-fitted silhouette and thumbholes give you the freedom to choose exactly how you want to wear it: base layer, top layer, or solo. Crafted in high-performance, mid-weight Merino wool with smooth flatlock seams. Scuba hood. 11” zip neck, with locking zipper pull and chin guard. Sewn in Canada. Washable.

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

for cycle touring, need that one do-all piece when you're only carrying one long sleeve shirt!

Hooded baselayer is a key piece: can ventilate easily, but provides excellent warmth when needed by covering neck and head.

Perfect for a workout layer or around town! Thanks for the cool new colors, Ibex!

Recommendation of friend

I am addicted to Indies. I wanted to try the hoodie and I love it. I wore it twice a week while training for a 50km (usually for my long runs). If it gets cold (less than 20) and you are a runner or need to stay warm for hours while moving a lot, consider these. Very good against the wind, too.

It was on sale and had long admired the weight and styling

Christmas gift for my daughter.

Like all the Ibex items I have ordered, this got great reviews, I elected to order the large although so far, medium items fit. I am 5'5, 130lbs with broad shoulders, and wanted a hoodie that is looser than current trends. And I have discovered (thanks to comments from other customers) that a low-heat dryer for 20 minutes tends to work well for stuff slightly looser than expected.

I have two of these and I adore them, They are light, very comfortable and very good looking. Also at 66 I love the feeling of the back of my neck being covered and warm. Also they are perfect weight for warmth , but not too warm.
Manda H on Jun 10, 2015
I bought one for myself and just love it, so I had to get one for my fiancé. Warm without being sweaty, light, thin, finger holes are great.

I am hiking the Inca Trail in Peru and my brother told me this is a great piece to have.
Brittany M on Jun 5, 2015
This is a fantastic product. Perfect weight for air travel or a cold movie theater. Perfect under a sweater and other cold weather layers. The scuba neck is so comfortable. Can live in it !
David P on Jun 4, 2015
The weight of the fabric is perfect for the shoulder seasons.
Rebecca B on May 27, 2015
I already own an Indie (which I wear often). I wanted a hooded Indie as well.
Iv K on May 25, 2015
like the hood, hate wearing hats so this is excellent layering piece
Kim P on May 22, 2015
I have one in another color and <3 it

my old indie wore out--one of my most-used garments
Green Mountain on May 10, 2015
Slowly changing from synthetic fabric performance clothing to wool because they don't stink and keep me more comfortable in the cold, wet environment I work and play in.
Nancy P on May 1, 2015
I chose this hoodie because I cannot have enough of these! I own one already and it was my favorite piece of clothing I wore all winter. It fits well, is the perfect base layer or outer layer, it is great for everyday use or as a warm layer for skiing or running. Even when wet, it kept me warm on a spring run in the rain. It feels so cozy next to my skin. I LOVE this hoodie. Thanks Ibex.
Elizabeth B on May 1, 2015
For cold morning runs with my dogs... I live in the Gorge and you always need a hood! It is either windy, raining snowing or ...Sunny!
Terri H on Apr 29, 2015
Needed a heavier weight T. Tired of see - through shirts.
Denise M on Apr 28, 2015
I have two hooded indies and they are amazing. Lightweight enough so they're only hot over 65 degrees, and can be worn down to 45 as outerwear. An amazing inner layer too. The indie fabric is like wool t-shirt...slightly warmer but just as comfortable. Biggest win: I gave them as gifts to my wife and sister who both love them.
Josh on Apr 28, 2015
I'm looking for a light weight baselayer with a hood.
Betsy C on Apr 26, 2015
My Indie Hoodie has been worn year around for many years, it needs a friend! Ibex, your clothing just keeps on going. I'm such a fan!!!!
Molly the schoo on Apr 21, 2015
My most favorite Ibex, or any other merino, piece!
Nancy F on Apr 21, 2015
I own one - it is a great mountain running hoody. I can wear it all day - and night - in sun, wind, rain, snow!
Missy G on Apr 18, 2015
Great fit and not too heavy.
Susan V on Apr 10, 2015
I have had 3 of these shirts. They are my favorite and are I need to start replacing them since I wear the constantly.

Hate to put this in the wash...
I wear it running outside in Anchorage winter weather, it keeps me warm but allows me to breathe. I love it, this is my second shirt like this, the first was taken from me by my teenager, worn at every moment possible, then lost. I was so sad I bought 3 to replace it! 1 for him and 2 for me!

Best christmas present ever!
I love this pullover! The sleeves are the perfect length, completely covers my hands. I layer it under jackets for work and play and never get too warm. It also very flattering on its own. I am 5'2 and 135lbs and the large feels custom fit.

Another Favorite from Ibex
This is my new favorite top from Ibex. It works great in the gym, on my bike and for a day out running errands. It is very flattering and feminine without being too girly. The color is gorgeous. Thanks Ibex, you rock!!

Great Layering Piece
The thing I like best about this piece is the weight. It is lightweight and warm. layers well with other shirt or sweaters. Would be great in the Spring and Fall as an outer layer. Always nice to have a hood.
January 2, 2014
Love it for year-round warmth.
The fit is wonderful. The fabric is soft but not weak. I will wear this top all year-round. It goes great over a tank and under a winter jacket or vest. In the summer it will fold up small in my bag for chilly summer nights.

Love this hoodie
This is an awesome layering piece. It is great to have the hood for moments when it is colder than you expected, over a hat or on its own, it adds so much warmth. Arm length and thumb holes are great and really nice for using in mittens or gloves so your sleeves don't ride up.

Love it!
Soft and light weight so not too hot to wear on cooler days and evenings or inside AC buildings with shorts. The hood is stylish and practical. The zipper lays flat and allows for venting. would be perfect for running this fall but it's so stylish and cute that I don't know if I want to wear it for running. I wear it every chance that I get - at least two times a week! Looking forward to more

love, love ibex
wear it all the time

so soft
Perfect for layering in Qu�bec's winter, or alone for an early stroll in California. Incredibly soft, hoody is useful, easy care and beautiful colours. Packs small and no stink is A+ for long runs in the woods or for travel. An all-around must.
