I have 4 of these and wanted my partner to have on too as this is my personal favorite for mid layer insulation.

More stylish than your average hoodie

My other one is getting worn out and I love this layer. It is perfect for most of the year in Alaska. I am not too sold on the side zip but I love the layer so much, I had to get another!

I was looking to replace an aged hoodie and thought the merino wool would be great option.

The asymmetric zip and the monkey finger hands. And the hood. I'e been looking for something in this weight and this looks like the one.

I needed a high performance mid-layer for my Pacific Crest True-Hike. This hoody also looks fantastic.

I've had one since 2012 and I'm wearing it out - it's getting threadbare in several places. Love this jacket/sweater - very versatile for layering and all around utility/comfort.

Perfect for real warmth and protection against precipitation in a climate that averages 13 feet of snow per winter.

I like having the zipper away from my chin and need a replacement for a worn out wool sport hoody.

Need something warm while I run and cycle in the rain.

Light and warm. The cut is off in my opinion. XS is extremely small and S is much bigger than the S in the orange color. The black color S is in between XS and S orange.

I have worn this sweater every single day since I got it. I live in rural Alaska and this is an excellent base layer in the winter and perfect for the warmer days when only this sweater is needed.

When I saw it online, and after reading some of the reviews, I wasn't sure if I'd like the side zipper, but it doesn't bother me at all. In fact, I like it. It's unique and I, too, have received a fe

Luxurious hoody
Love the side zip - very stylish. Also really love the soft fleece interior. This works great for everyday use over an Ibex tee and also for active use. A definite winner and I'd love to get another color!

I love it
I have this hoody in the sky blue and the vino rojo. I love the asymmetrical cut. The inside is really soft. I find both color hoodies to be stretchy, although not as stretchy as some other Ibex products. Yes the left pocket is smaller but it's big enough to warm my hand in. It's warm but still thin enough to wear as a mid layer. Nice long sleeves which I love.

Warm & cozy
Put it on right out of the box then went to work teaching skiing all day. Total crush on this hoody!!! Smelled better after I washed it, though.

This has been the perfect cool summer morning/evening layer or for when the air conditioning has been put on the "meat locker" setting. The hood is perfect for keeping dampness or light rain off my hair. I can use the thumb loops to pull the sleeves over my hands when my wrists are cold and achy and still be able to type. I am very pleased with this hoody.

Chic side zipper plus functional warmth
I wear this product for most outdoor activities...walk the dog, hike; but the best thing Is it is nice enough for a night at the movies, dinner out.

Love, love. love this sweater
I can't say enough about this sweater. So excellent with the off set zipper so never cuts into your neck. Nicely fitted to the body so heat stays in without feeling tight. Always a fan of the arm thumb hole. And the color ROCKS!!! I always feel great when I wear it. LOVE THIS SWEATER!!!!

The best.
This is my favorite purchase from Ibex. It is slimmer fitting than other tops I've ordered in the same size (M) that are described as "regular fit" (mentioned in some other reviews here too)- I love it. This is a fabulous lightweight piece that is perfect for cold weather wear. It is also stylish enough that I end up wearing it all the rest of the time too. The side zipper is quite flattering.

Nice product, love the styling
I really like this sweatshirt. I bought it in July, so haven't had a lot of opportunities yet to wear it - but when I have, it has fit the bill! It's very warm, for the thickness of the fabric. It looks really classy zipped up almost all the way, with the top section of the collar folded down to emphasize the asymmetric zipper. I will say I prefer to wear it zipped up, to show off the zipper - wearing it open feels a bit odd because you can't see the styling, and it just sort of looks like one side of the hoody has more fabric than the other side. Overall, very happy with the purchase, and getting it on a great sale was a bonus too!
