We love the IBEX brand, which is relatively new on our radar. Vermont-based, this active clothing company is dedicated to high quality Merino Wool.
You might be thinking: not quite the best fit with summer around the corner, we know that our readers are global and even though its getting warmer in North America, it’s winter elsewhere in the world. And, truth be told, I headed to Patagonia when it was warm in California only to need plenty of warm gear when I arrived.
That said, they have plenty of mid-layer options available, such as this ideal Indie hoodie which comes in a soft green, blue, gray and orange. It’s an all-season Merino jersey that uses a natural fiber layer that is perfect for post-gym cool down, morning warm up, or all-purpose travel layers. It also includes thumb holes for easy layering, so we’re not surprised that it’s one of their top sellers.
If you’re not into hoodies, then how about a soft easy-to-care for short sleeve shirt that can go with a pair of jeans or dress up a casual pair of pants for dinner, especially ideal during a Spring or Summer dinner when you’re on the road. Below, their Jackson Shirt is shown in a neutral green, however they have 3 plaid options as well.
Think music events, sight seeing, barbecues and film festivals as well. They use soft natural wool fiber so it falls well and doesn’t wrinkle easily, which is a godsend for avid male travelers.
What we love most about their clothing is that it’s super soft AND high quality – you can feel the difference the moment you put the garments on.
Their lightweight merino wool outperforms synthetics and cotton year-round and the temperature regulating and moisture managing properties of Merino add to the comfort. They also offer great jacket options, as well as fun colored boxers as well.
Another great option is their all day crew which comes in blue, a tan and black. It makes for a great layer under a mid-weight ski jacket or for trekking around a city while sightseeing.
