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

Great product
I'm 6'2" tall, 175 lbs and the mediums fit perfect. I used (lived in)them out in the dessert climbing and hiking under my jeans and they did not get stuffy, then the nights got down to the 30's and never got cold.
I got recommended to try Ibex product from the Yogaslackers, I'll definitely get more and will be changing my ridding gear to Ibex now.

I just returned from a fourteen day wilderness canoe trip in the BWCA and basically lives in these, as well as numerous other items from these amazing people. The tights performed above and beyond my expectations. They provided the necessary insulation for the sub freezing temps we had for the entire trip, as well as provided the needed warmth when I went for the unexpected "swim" next to shore.

Excellent I will buy another pair when I get the money.
I am 6 ft 190 lbs and the large was a perfect fit.

cold weather comfort!!
These are great tights! The feel is very durable, the leg cuff zippers are tight and form fitting. Cycling in 30 degrees with these tights and shorts felt very comfortable. (I live in Wisconsin).
The down side is the fit is very big. I usually wear size M, but size S is almost too big!

Great product. Great fit, form, and function. Did I mention they look good too?

This is my second pair. Previous lasted four seasons of road and cyclocross riding over bike shorts. Very Euro.

Only suggestion is specific to cycling: Could they sew a chamois panel on the outside of the crotch as an option for durability against the saddle.

good base layer
The fabric is not very tightly knit hence rather breezy to wear alone especially for winter sports. Great fit however. I buy men's pants because I hate women's cut. Some of us prefer a higher waist and longer legs! As with all other Ibex wool the quality of the fabric is excellent... easy to care for...soft and warm.

Energy Tights
I'm now on my third pair of energy tights. The first pair I must have gotten at least 10 years ago and they're now in a bag of emergency gear in the trunk of my car. I'm one of those people who get abnormally attached to my clothes and I have a hard time giving up an item after all we've been through together. I use the tights almost exclusively for cold weather running here in Minnesota. That

old school tights
Great for 35-55 degree weather. Loose knit means no rain riding in these tights.

High Quality and made in the USA!!
I purchased these to find a replacement for synthetic base layers while working on higher voltages up to 5k.Wanted made in USA and Ibex is great as they list where made but also where materials come from which is outstanding and hope others follow their model. I know these have some synthetics in them but very small amounts. I wore these on a motorcycle trip that dipped into the 20's and mostly st

comfortable for us big guys
I finally have tights that fit my large thighs snugly w/o restraining movement. Ibex knows what XL means. Too many times I have bought XL's only to find out that that they are mediums in reality. The waist band is soft and doesn't irritate my coccyx while on a 4 hour ride on my recumbent. They were comfortable even on a ride that started out at 35 degrees F and ended at 65. I was relunctant t
