All About The Wool
Wool Type +
The exclusive combination of mostly wool with a bit of nylon and Lycra® gives this fabric a soft, resilient flexibility. Used in the Women's Loose Tights, it has become a favorite of many, a fabric that you won't want to take off. Machine Washable.
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

I've worn these for several winter runs and cross country skis now and absolutely love them. The most recent run was on New Year's Eve and even standing around before and after the run (20 degrees F) my legs were warm, and yet did not get overly warm during the run, which is something i really notice. These will make my winter even more enjoyable!
I live at 10,400 feet in Colorado and I have worn these pants everyday since they arrived! Performance is top notch for power walking to computer work and everything in between. Never get too hot even when in the house with radiant floor heat on...can go in & out all day and not have to change pants! Pet hair (dog, cat, horse) does not cling and if you get a bunch of fur on them it brushes off q
It's hard to find a product that can truly go the distance when training for a marathon- but the Energy Tight seems primed for the job! They are formfitting, yet somewhat forgiving with their woolly texture. The wide waist band rests comfortably above the waist, and the legs stay in position regardless of the hills ahead! A definite gem, sure to be a part of all my future runs!
I love these! I've worn these several times for cold morning runs and my legs stay nice and warm without the bulk. If you are active outdoors during the winter- ski, run, cycle - you must have a pair of these. Already recommended these to my runner/cyclist sister!
The energy tight is my new favorite thing to wear running. In fact, now that I have them, I can't imagine running in anything else during the cold winter months. They are the perfect weight for running when it's 30 degrees or below. They are not constricting like some other running tights I've had in the past, yet also keep their shape and don't end up sagging or slipping. I can't recommend this e
I live in interior Alaska and have a hard time finding a mostly wool base layer that is sufficiently thick and durable. These tights are great and flattering for regular everyday wear, but also are an excellent base layer for x-c skiing, snowshoeing, and running in cold temps. I've only had them about a month but am pretty sure these tights will last a lot longer than most of the thinner base lay
Ibex's Energy Tight is awesome! I've only had them for about a week, but I'm in love... The fit is great and the fabric (unsurprisingly) amazing. I was especially impressed when it was covered in snow and I didn't feel wetness or clinginess (a result when wearing tights made of other fabrics) at all (neither during nor after working out).
The only thing I have to criticize is the same as others h
I have been running for years and am so glad to have found these IBEX tights. They are perfectly snug, even after daily wear and numerous washes. The Energy Tight has made winter running, hiking and x-country skiing so much more pleasurable. I've recommended these to all of my friends!
I am very happy with this purchase. The only thing I would change would be the waistband as it bends over so is a little bulky. The wool is cozy and perfect for running out in fields where I and my Springer find prickers underfoot. By keeping it a zippered tight nothing gets snagged.
I bought a pair of these three years ago or so. I like to wear them every day all day during the cold season. I wear them under my pants at my professional job (I'm in and out of the cold and the car all day) and then for a run or a ski, and then leave them on all evening for a long-johns party! I had to buy a second pair so I could wear a fresh pair while I rinse out the sweaty ones and let th
After a month with only one pair of Energy Tights I purchased a second and haven't looked back. I've worn them just about everywhere -- snowshoeing, yoga, grocery shopping, even for a half-day of work during the holidays. The fit is perfect and they are wonderfully warm. This is a great product.
so comfortable you feel like your legs are getting a great hug all day. I got them for skiing but still wear them in a cool May here in New England. They do run smaller than other Ibex styles, I'm a size 8, but a large in these fits well. A small fits in other Ibex pants, so that's a bit odd. But I do find these more comfortable than any others. Would love a style with real pockets and somewhat sl
These tights are darn near perfect. Stretchy without getting baggy. Thick enough to minimize panty lines. Warm and breathable. Nice matte appearance. Flat wide waistband that minimizes binding. They're too long on me, but I'm short, so that's hard to avoid. Still, I hate to take them off and am considering buying more just so I don't have to be without them. Ever.
These tights are amazing! Great for cross- country skiing, running, and hiking. These tights allow for complete freedom of movement while also providing great warmth on the colder days in southeastern Alaska.
I got these at a rowing regatta in NJ in August -- and trying them on in the heat was an experience! But I finally got to wear them at the Head of the Charles in Boston this year, when it was windy and cold and rainy and miserable -- only I wasn't. This was probably the first year when it was cold that I was comfy (had on lots of Ibex on top, too). As for the zippers on the bottom--- well, for
I usually walk 6 miles 5 days a week and now that the weather is getting colder I am happy with the way they feel. Looking forward to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in them soon. I bought a pair for my daughter for Christmas and I know she will like them.
These tights are my favorite pants I have ever had. They are warm when it's cold, cool when it's warmer (a bit hot for summer though). If I never had to dress up I would wear these all the time. They do have a certain pizazz however.
These are great! When it's colder than the long janes, I wear these. I wear these most often under snowpants while downhill skiing. I'm a patroller on weekends, and we often ski to -20F. When it's that cold, I wear these and my ibex shorts under my snowpants, and I stay warm, though occasionally I add the loose tights in between if I'm feeling cold in the morning. They are actually long enoug
I LOVE these leggings. I work in an outdoor kindergarten in the Pacific Northwest and I wear them every day. They keep me warm in damp, drizzly weather and comfortable warm weather. They allow me to run, jump, climb and crawl with my active kindergartners. After our outdoor school day is over, I slip a skirt on over the leggings and wear them to school meetings or out to dinner. This is my secon
I am lamenting that these tights are only available at this point with zippers. I have a pair of these heavyweight tights with perfect flat stitching and perfect thickness which breathe, yet provide windproof comfort, and they do not have zippers. I have owned mine for several years and I seen no reason for zippers on the legs. I have given up all my nylon and other zipper tights for my Ibex t
I've run through seven Pacific NW winters and these tights, hands down, are the best piece of winter running gear I've ever had. They're comfortable and warm without being bulky or hot. I've worn a lot of (non-wool) running tights and they've always been a necessary evil: you accept all of their annoying qualities because what else are you gonna do when it's 28�? These, however, have made wint
My last pair of IBEX leggings lasted 15 years. My new pair has an even-more-comfortable waist band, a sturdy knit and a perfect fit. So far I've worn them hacking out a new trail and to the NYC Ballet (with a long sweater and high boots). I love wool for handling temperatures from freezing to auditorium level.
I got these to wear as warm casual leggings under the Ibex Kurta sweater tunic. They are a perfect heavy weight and FIT LIKE A GLOVE! They are a tightly woven wool knit with a lot of stretch to them. NO ITCHINESS AT ALL!
These are the best-fitting leggings I've even worn! They fit my waist, hips, butt PERFECTLY! No bulkiness / looseness in the crotch or thighs at all!
I used to wear the Ibex long mary-janes as leggings, as I hadn't considered the running/sport tights. I wish I had found these years ago. They fit perfectly, don't bag at the knees (the mary-janes do), are suitable for sports or as leggings with a tunic or dress, and they are incredibly comfortable. I am 5'7", 128lbs, and the small fits like a dream. Comfy waistband and handy zipper at the ankles
I am training for a marathon and bought these tights for cold weather running. I absolutely love them. I would buy 4 or 5 pairs if I could afford it. I have bought many tights over the years for biking, running, skiing, etc and these are my all time favorite! I love how they fit, look and feel.
More reptilian than mammal, I'm always looking for warm leggings. Tired of always wearing Loose Tights II (I have 4 pairs), I tried these. They look to be a great legging, really warm. But you'd have to be Scarlet O'hara to fit this waist and Twiggy to fit the ankle. I'm 5'7 and 130 lbs, almost always wear a medium, but I'm sending these back in hopes the large fits better. On me, these are j
My thighs & butt suffer in the cold when running, and adding too many layers just makes it harder to run. I already have a few pair of the wool shorties, and in combo now with these, I can stay warm and dry during my winter runs. Used them the other day when the wind chill was 7 and I felt fine. All your products wash and wear well. I love IBEX!!!
I use it walks,skiing, at the gym and under dresses when I need to stay warm. The elastics around the waist is a bit to tight. It is probably a good idea to go down a size if you like the tights to be tight and supportive.
Very happy to finally find a nice pair of wool tights that are well made and warm. Use them for outdoor activities such as skiing and hiking and would totally replace my well worn wool bike tights but they would need to have a flatter seam in the crotch area.
I figure a guy's perspective may be useful too. I got this for my wife in Medium. She is a slender 5'9" with curves in all the right places. The Medium looks great on her - she always has trouble getting the right length for pants - not with this piece. The fabric feels great, heavy enough that it does not show skin or undergarments through it (that's a good thing in my book).
These tights are very warm for cold weather, great when I want something warmer than regular leggings. The waist is very tight! The two inch elastic band does not need to be this thick. Because of the thickness, it stretches very little and digs in to the waist. It can give one a muffin top appearance whence wholly unecessary. Also the waistband is two inches smaller than my size small Izzi p
I had wanted some great winter running pants or tights for a LONG time that wouldn't ride up or work their way down as I ran, and would not flop around my ankles. I also wanted some leg-wear that would be warm and comfy. These tights work great and meet my criteria! I was concerned that the wool fabric would be scratchy or tight, especially in dry Colorado winter air, but after a few outdoor runs
Really comfortable, really warm. My butt and thighs get so cold during winter activities, but these pants really help. I also wear them well into spring/summer here for hiking, as they breathe quote well. And did I mention they are really comfortable? My only complaint, like other reviewers, is the waist band. It is constantly getting twisted around, and I spend way too much time trying to right i
Worn several times running in chilly fall weather. kept me warm but not too hot. small is a little too long for my 5'3" body but doable. love the zipper at the ankle which is great for letting out body heat. no knee sagging! no spandex! Yeah!
I liked the fit and feel of these for very cold outdoor runs, skiing or working out. I did not keep them because they did not have a drawstring. I like a drawstring in my running pants, especially when they get wet and start to stretch out or sag. These are very hearty leggings - so i was worried without the drawstring I would be pulling my pants up on long or bad weather runs. Not fun!
Very comfy and warm, perfect as a bottom layer here in Alaska during the winter! The only thing I hate is the elastic waste band. I love that it's thick, but it's only attached to the fabric one spot in the back and it twists all the way around to that point.I'm constantly having to work it back the way it's supposed to be. For paying as much as I did for them, I would expect them to be perfect. B
I thought they'd have a similar fit to the Energy Sport Pant, but they are entirely different. I'm short so the zipper and grippy elastic at the ankles fall in the wrong place. I don't think I'd need all that zipping and gripping capability anyway. I do a lot of walking instead of running. The waistband is very tight and the entire piece feels more like compression pants. I've taken out the zipper
The only good thing about these tights is that they are wool. I expected a heavier weight like my Izzy pants and a similar fit. They are much lighter weight and much smaller, too tight in the legs, not designed for skier or biker quads or calves. And the zipper renders them useless for alpine skiing, what I intended them for and the light weight will not stand up to winter wind for outerwear use.
