Indie:

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 purchased this for my husband as a gift. It has become his second favorite shirt. If he is not wearing it, it is because it is in the wash. His favorite shirt is the Half Zip. I chose it because of the breathability, warmth, and style.
Debra C on Jun 26, 2016
It looks like a good item for cold weather road bike commuting. I like that it is fitted. I like the high neck and the thumb holes.
Jesse B on Jun 25, 2016
Needed a new base layer, liked the hood - all past Ibex products have been great.
abes on Jun 19, 2016
This is one of my favorite wool items. lighweight and soft. keeps me cool. keeps me warm. doesn't smell. the hood is quite handy.
Doug C on Jun 15, 2016
Best three season running hoody ever. Add another layer for the winter.
VTguy on Jun 14, 2016
because its superior in design to the replacement hoody - the VT hoody. bring this one back with more colors - the zip is key - - i like the set in shoulders of the VT hoody but i would never buy a hoody without a zip - ideally i would love the Indie hoody with a FULL zip

Wanted a sold wool layer for a cross country bike tour. Should be able to pack down small enough when not in use and not weigh as much as other fleece options

I just got one and haven't taken it off for 3 weeks. So I thought it's about time my husband could feel the warmth.

Wool hoods work great under a ski helmet.

I found my IBEX base layer bottoms exceptional and perfect to wear with my snow gear for all day activities in cold to freezing weather. This is a test of another garment to see if I enjoy an IBEX top as much.

Good sale price. I have purchased this same hoodie in the past, it didn't last as long as I would have liked, but I can afford it with the discounted sale.
Jeffrey T on Feb 21, 2016
My favorite Ibex top, and I own several. Fit is perfect. Thumb holes and hood are great! Perfect for running in cold, wet conditions in Seattle area.
Andrew L on Feb 21, 2016
Great baselayer. Time to add another one.
Guest S on Feb 21, 2016
Not as long in the back as one purchased 5-6 years ago, Slightly different cut I guess. Less tech, more casual. still nice, just doesn't cover the bum as well.

Wanted a light weight base to compare to the Patagonia I already have. I now prefer Ibex to Patagonia for my base layers.

Have two already great base layer for winter road bicycling - wife said buy two more so I do not have to wash them all the time.
John S on Feb 5, 2016
Thumb loops, versatile hood, and midweight wool. Perfect for Nordic outings.
Richard H on Feb 3, 2016
best baselayer for biking and skiing ever! on long back country ski climbs you go from hot and sweaty to colder windier temps towards the summit. A simple flip of the hood helps keep the cold from your neck without the bulk and non-flexible hassle of putting on the shell hood. Love the hood for the descent as it is soft, flexible (you can turn your head and still see) and yet keeps snow out of your neck during those spectacular yard sale crashes.

Does it provide UV Sun Protection?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I purchased my Md Hooded Indie this winter and love it as a base layer and mid layer. It kept me warm and cozy on a winter hiking weekend in the White Mountains. Durning a recent trip to Utah, it did provide some sun protection while hiking, no sun burn on my arms or trunk after a 6 hr hike at higher elevations.
Is this hood good under a helmet?
Evan K on Apr 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use it under a bicycle helmet and its handy to slide off and on to adjust body temp on cold days
How does this fabric hold up for rock climbing?
Kelly P Staff on Sep 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's definitely a thinner piece; I climb in layers this weight often, and they do get holes. However, it won't completely fall apart on you--it will just lose it's clean aesthetics (and gain some street...er, crag...cred). If you want a piece that will take more of a beating, anything with the Shak material will hold up better (albeit it'll be warmer).
How does the Men's Indie Hoody and the Men's Hooded Indie differ? It appears the Indie Hoody is a longer cut and perhaps sewn slightly differently around the zipper? correct/incorrect? any other differences?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, you are right. Also, the thumb holes are different (kind of hidden) and the sleeves are a bit longer.
Thanks!
is this a graphite grey or light grey in color?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's more on the graphite gray side.

Still a good product, but...
The fit is the same as my 2010 Indie Hoodie by the size has decreased to a closer-cut, almost Athletic size. It is beginning to relax a bit so I'm sure that the fit will improve. The fabric has a whole different feel than my older Indie. The older has a really soft hand, more of a cotton jersey; I can read my laptop screen through this new one. It is warm as a base, but not on its own.
2010 Indie (size Large) weighs in at 268 grams, new Indie (size Large also) at 232 Grams and is 4 inches shorter. Overall: I like the color and the fit should relax a bit more, but long term thought is I'll try a different brand when I order a replacement.

Dope
This hoodie is a perfect baselayer. It's super warm and comfortable, and slim enough to fit under just about anything. I'm 5'11" and 175lbs, the medium fits me very well. I have broad shoulders, so when I put the good up, it stretched the fabric around my neck and shoulders upward. It should break in fairly well.

Great for Running
I like to go running in this guy. It's light enough where you don't overheat, and warm enough and has that hood to prevent shivers if the temperature drops.

Great
Great piece of clothing. One thing that would make it better would be a chest pocket.

Comfy, warm, be a sheep for a day!
No stink (as of yet), compared to my 6 year old synthetic underwear. Much warmer, and has all the features requisite for a layer your life could depend on in an alpine assault: thumb loops, hood, 1/4 length front zipper for ventilation, and it's low enough to tuck into long-johns. Also, the wool is very soft.

A solid piece that is helping me grin through the Montana winter.

Pilling
Comfortable and will dry very fast as advertised. Significant pilling after I wore it once with a backpack. Also runs smaller than the other products I've purchased from Ibex. I'd use it as a base layer in colder months.Not the warmest hoodie.

Might want to order up a size...
The fabric feels great overall quality appears very good but...I will defer to previous reviews:

My favorite shirt
I love traveling in this shirt. Regulates body temperature from town, to airplane, to destination.

Just in Time for Sub-Zero
The hoody that could best describes this great Ibex item. When Alaska gets sub-zero and snow is good, it's time to layer-up and XC ski. Great for cold outdoor workouts and backcountry outings. It can soak up the sweat when grinding but when combined with a synthetic T seems to dry out quick and won't flash burn like nylon around a campfire. Sure is nice to pull up the hood to keep heat loss fr

Excellent layer
I love hoodies and to have a lightweight wool layer with a hoodie is a dream come true. I spend everyday outdoors and I have used this daily from the day I received it. Everything from Mountain biking to hiking. The best use will be backcountry skiing to the huts and teaching avalanche classes this winter.

The fit is looser which is perfect. I could wear another layer underneath if I wanted o
