Fabric:

Shak Lite

Born from the love of our signature Shak fabric. We felt the need for a lighter piece that could be worn year round. The net is a 295gsm, USA grown rambouillet wool, medium weight (like a light sweater) textured knit fabric. At 21 micron, feels soft yet strong and has more natural give than the original Shak. No matter how you wear it, the performance is unbeatable. Machine washable. Field to Factory 100% USA sourced garment. 100% Merino Wool

Love that it's a light weight, has pockets, sleeves are longer then wrists and full zipper front...very versatile.

I love Ibex's products in general- bonus because it is made in the USA! Previously, I had actually worn holes in two old Ibex garments that I had bought around 2005, and that were literally used daily. Truth is, I still wear them (even with holes!) because the fabric and construction are fantastic! I have been disappointed to read that Ibex regularly changes their designs- so replacing garments becomes a gamble, and that they eliminated their heavier outerwear lines, but in general, I LOVE IBEX!

I wear these year round, for work and outdoor activities.

One of my favorite Ibex items for a while now. Versatile, useful in autumn, winter, spring ...summer too, if living in the mountains (I do not, but spend a lot of time in them all seasons). The fabric is a wonderful weight, the fit is terrific, the hood is useful, and the pockets are a nice touch.
Adrienne B on Aug 25, 2015
Like the color and style and weight and hood.
Martha F on Aug 25, 2015
Love it... had one before and wore it until,it wore out a cuffs and elbows Probably three years summer and winter worth of consistdent wear. Great alternative to light fleece.

I have one in black; I like it very much. I wanted another color.

great garment...super color
Joan P on Aug 18, 2015
I had this hoody in another color and wore it for almost 4 years until the elbows wore out. I loved it so much I had it patched up, but after 6 months the holes in the elbows were back. I just ordered the blue hoody in a M and it is just as lovely as the first one (although I preferred the previous color more than this blue one). I love this hoody because it is warm, soft and slimming. I just ordered it in azalea. It fits me perfect: I am 5'4", 135 and a C cup.

Love my Juliette zip front and wanted something with more warmth around the neck, hope this will do it.
Marcia L on Aug 12, 2015
Sounds versatile, and for once I liked the color. Your colors are often very different in real life from online (this does not happen with any other online clothing purchase), so I'm not certain it will appeal to me in real life, but the sale made it worth a try.
Meg W on Aug 11, 2015
have similar in black and love it this one has pockets
sandra g on Aug 11, 2015
This is a great, versatile hoody. Layers well or can be worn alone. Love the fabric, the style, the pockets!!!!

How is the fit?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I had last year's shak lite hoody wtih a different collar and hood attachment which I found prettier. It also had different body seams and thumb holes in the sleeves and zippered pockets,which I liked also. This shak is slightly longer, but is a nice fit and style. If I were to request a perfect fit, I would like it very slightly shorter and not QUITE as snug across the chest( I am not big in the chest at all) I would be happy with this shak if those criteria were met. Overall though, I am quite happy with it. The quality and fabric are fabulous--would love to see more colors, espcially light colors such as a lighter pink.
is the inside layer soft?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello yes the inside of the Shak Lite Hoody is soft.
Is the Shak Lite designed to fit over another top? If the Small measurements are a "fit" would I be able to wear this as an over-sweater?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello yes you can wear the Shak Lite Hoody over another top. It is a Semi Fit item so I wouldn't want to wear anything bulky under it. A nice base layer would be perfect. You could also wear this as an over sweater. Hope this has helped. Thanks

Perfect travel layer
I bought this in June for a trip walking in Scotland in weather that was 60 degrees and raining (but wonderful). I layered it under a thin fleece and then rain gear as necessary. I lived in it all week, indoors and out. My only complaint is that I can now see a little pilling on the cuffs.

Love the Capri blue but like the old style better
I was really excited to see a pretty blue. I like this style - it's cleaner and can go with more things but I really loved the zippered pockets on the old ste. That said the shak lite hoody is my favorite I have 4 so far.

Shak Lite Hoody
I LOVE this hoody. It fits well on a woman's body, hugging the right places and comfortably fitting around the waist. It looks cute with jeans or a skirt, casual or a bit dressed up. I wish I had this in every color!
May 17, 2015
Nice, but not as nice as it used to be
I have an Oxford Blue version of this hoody that I bought three or so years ago. It is marvelous. The fabric is strong and resilient. The drape and fit are amazing. I have now purchased two more of these hoodies in hopes of having another one like that first one, but sadly the fabric has changed. It pills after a few wears, and it is much more clingy. Much more like a sweatshirt. Its the way things usually go -- quality goes down over time -- but I sure wish it hadn't happened to this hoody.

great travel jacket
This would have been my second Shak Lite, having loved the first so much. But this one does have the zippered pockets or the drop in pocket inside that were so handy for travel. Had to return.

Warm and flattering
I love Ibex tops because the cut flatters my curves. The hoody is heavier weight than I expected, but I'm sure I'll use it a lot!

love, love, love this hoody
Have lots of Ibex clothing and have never been disappointed. This hoody is especially great--wonderful material, generous pockets, hoody works great. Just gave it a test drive while working in Toronto--where it is unexpectedly raining. Works great! May get another one in a different color.

Feels like it will hold up well to the future washings.
Purchased this shak to replace my older one (5 years of 3 season use). The fabric on the new one washed well and feels like it will hold up over the years of use. Sleeves long enough to bring down around your hands on those chilly camp mornings. Hoody well designed to flatter shape with out binding.
