I've heard the phrase "rugged yet refined" used to describe the Scout Vest and I think this mantra sums up the piece perfectly. Perfect to wear on a fall night at Fenway or in the office during the winter.
I love the weight of the Indie fabric for winter running and the slim fit of this piece will allow for layering if need be. I know the bright red will serve as a nice mood booster on the inevitable gray, winter days here in Boston.
It is a perfect shirt for the transition between the seasons. It's great on its own when temperatures are in the 60s and 70s. When it gets cooler, it works well under a coat or a mid-layer. The scoop neck and slightly belled shape of the torso make it flattering on lots of different types of bodies.
It keeps you warm and cozy without looking technical, and sometimes that's what you want! The hem falls below the hip and high on the thigh, so it can be worn lots of different ways (on it's own or layered, paired with denim, with dress pants, with a skirt, or with thick leggings).
The OD Henley is my favorite Ibex shirt (I own a couple of them, and will be getting more). It looks great for just about any occasion and couldn't be more comfortable; not to mention it has all the awesome performance and practicality of wool.
Sometimes I don’t want to wear a full on jacket and that’s where the Beacon Shirt comes in. With a Woolies 150 Crew underneath, I am good to go in late Fall and early winter. It’s a great piece to have on and off trail and a perfect mid-layer on those really cold days.
I use this jacket for just about everything. It’s perfect for cold weather runs, early morning climbs and late evening drinks. The Shak Lite panel on the back assures that I don’t get too toasty but still stay nice and warm when needed.
I love layering in winter, and this sweater is perfect for it. It can be used either as an outer-layer or mid-layer, depending on the weather. The neck is also really soft and can be zipped up to keep your chin warm for any activity.
I picked this piece primarily for its versatility: I can wear the Shak Lite both as an outer layer hiking up in the White Mountains this fall as well as underneath a shell while skiing this winter. It is also nicely fitted, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone else who is tall and has a slimmer frame.
After five years of living in Maine, I've acquired a humongous number of plaid shirts. This one, however, is my first made out of Merino wool and definitely stands out from the rest in its warmth, breathability, and overall comfort.
