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\u0027s own.

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

Still need help determining your size? Call 800.773.9647 or email us at info@ibex.com for specific garment measurements.

I appreciate the performance of wool fabric in all weather, and raglan sleeves fit my broad shoulders better than standard seams.

I hope IBEX continues to make this product!

I always trust your products. I have 3 already.
Your products are so much superior compare to other similar ones, e.g. Icebreaker.
Priscilla C on Aug 4, 2015
have been wanting to try.
Kristin Z on Aug 4, 2015
This is a great shirt to wear on cool morning runs. Even better on cold mornings with a vest or light jacket.
Susan H on Aug 4, 2015
my girl friend liked it !
Den the winter on Aug 4, 2015
for cycle touring, need that one do-all piece when you're only carrying one long sleeve shirt!
elizabeth m on Jul 30, 2015
Hooded baselayer is a key piece: can ventilate easily, but provides excellent warmth when needed by covering neck and head.
Diego Z on Jul 29, 2015
John Carlyle on Jul 21, 2015
Perfect for a workout layer or around town! Thanks for the cool new colors, Ibex!

Recommendation of friend
Lindsay P on Jul 15, 2015
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.
pcz on Jul 14, 2015
It was on sale and had long admired the weight and styling
Tama on Jul 7, 2015
My good friend says she wears hers all the time
Maura O on Jul 6, 2015
I love my full zip without a hood, and I wanted a hooded one for camping in mosquito country!
Anna K on Jun 30, 2015
all purpose hoody for walking, running, outdoor activities in cooler weather
karen f on Jun 29, 2015
Christmas gift for my daughter.
Dorothy B on Jun 29, 2015
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.
anne m on Jun 10, 2015
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.
robert m on Jun 7, 2015
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
Martha D on May 11, 2015
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
best light layer ever!

Beth B on Aug 29, 2015
What is the total length from shoulder in size M and L ? I am tall (5'11) and am worried that is is too short...
Christine T on Aug 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm also 5'11 and have long arms so i often order men's medium (instead of a women's large) when there is a similar item. Women's large is usually too bid in the stomach and has shorter length. The men's medium is longer, with longer arms and thinner in the body. Works perfectly for me.

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!
January 13, 2013
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.
January 8, 2013
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
July 4, 2013
love, love ibex
wear it all the time
February 18, 2010
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.
