All About The Wool
Wool Type +
Our Pulse fabric is designed to lend a bit of stretch to Merino wool. Made for high output activity like trail running and yoga, Pulse is a lightweight blend of Merino fiber and spandex for a softer feeling active garment. Pulse improves the benefits of wool to fit, feel and perform better.
Benefits of Wool
Wool garments offer substantially more protection from UV exposure than traditional summer fabrics, like cotton.
Wool draws moisture away from the skin and evaporates moisture, regulating body temperature in all conditions.
Ibex wool products naturally include antimicrobial properties, keeping your garment odor-free.
Wool fights off weather and dirt and prevents stains, making Ibex easy to wash and easy to keep clean.
Because Ibex is made from very small micron diameter fibers, our garments are extremely soft and comfortable.
The craftspeople who are involved in every step of the process–from the sheep, to the spinners, to the sewers–are carefully hand-selected.
Because we use wool–a natural and renewable fiber– Ibex is good for you and good for the Earth.
Ibex wool garments resist heat. They don’t hold a flame and won’t melt like synthetic fabrics and fibers.
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

Expensive shorts for their lack of longstanding durability.
This is a long term ownership review.
I own several pairs of these shorts, which I wear to the gym. I used to really love them, which is why I own 4 or 5 pairs. My issue has become their durability and the garment's sourcing. So I bought these shorts for a couple of reasons, 1. they're more convenient to pack because you only need to pack 1 garment instead of two (this is still true); 2. they were sown in the USA which made the $90/pair a tolerable price to pay - they are now made in China and are $85, so basically the same price only the workers were paid less to make them.
Two of my pairs of developed holes in the inner short. These holes are not in the seam or stitching, but in the fabric itself. They are not old enough for that to happen to $85-90 shorts. So I would say if you're not going to wear and wash the shorts 1-2x a week then they're fine - just expensive for the long term durability and the probable wages paid to the workers who made them - but if you're expecting a pair of shorts you can wash and wear all the time then these are not a great option.
