    Hey Seattle-girls:

    I was at a seminar earlier today and in walks a guy wearing an Ibex cycling jersey.

    I asked him where he got it (before we got down to talking about modelling disasters in urban planning) and he told me there is a place where they sell discounted Ibex store (among other luxury outdoor gear) near his house in Seattle.

    I couldn't get much more details, but maybe some of you guys know about it??

    We could have our first party there....!

    Hey, I'm hoping for some for xmas but I really doubt that's gonna happen unless I treat myself. As usual, I'm the only one around here who 'gets' me, especially when it comes to biking stuff. (sigh)

    Backcountry.com usually has some on sale.

    I love the sweater.
    Let me know how the gloves work out, Lisa. I'm looking for some warm ones, as I get cold very easy and don't warm up nearly fast enough.

    I ordered both the small and the large gloves since my hand size falls right in between. I was going to send the non-fitting pair back and they'll take it off my credit card then.
    I'm frustrated, because though Ibex sent me my gloves the very next day- they sent me the two in the MEN'S sizes small and medium! They were huge of course, and I couldn't tell much from putting them on, except they were soft and warm.
    So they are now sending me the correct two pairs (and charging my credit card AGAIN) and then they will credit me back when they receive the two men's pairs back from me. Annoying. I get wrong items so OFTEN from various companies- why don't people double check when they pack up orders???

    I guess you all will have to come out here to VT next year when we can go to the annual IBEX tent sale! It is a madhouse of fun! I should know, I spent waaaayyyyy too much money there this year.

    I LOVE IBEX!

    Tent sale? Vermont? When? Where?

    Maybe DH and I could make a day of it... we would have to pack a picnic lunch, since we wouldn't be able to afford going out for lunch by the time we were done shopping...

    Well, the very next day (today) I got the correct WOMEN'S gloves from Ibex- pretty impressive speed. I sent the men's gloves back to them already (using their free shipping label). I found that the women's small fit me just right, so I will be sending back the medium pair.
    However, I was mildy annoyed to find that they had charged me $10 shipping AGAIN when sending me the RIGHT gloves. It was THEIR mistake, not a typical size exchange. I called them and they promised to take the $10 off my credit card. But that's two mistakes on one order in my opinion, so it just shows you have to pay attention out there.
    The gloves seem great though- I am pleased with their quality and how the feel and fit. They are soft and flexible and the long wrists and complete leather palms are great. I will be giving them the test of fire over the coming days in the cold. My fingers FROZE today on a 19 mile ride in 40 degrees using my "regular" lightweight full fingered gloves with a liner inside. I was toasty all over elsewhere, but my fingers were in major pain! I hope these expensive Ibex ski gloves are worth it...

    I want some Ibex! one of you guys might have picked up the medium in blue of the ultimate guide sweater already! I don't even think that one would have fit me- I was planning on shrinking it. (being 5'2" is rough) Egads I am not sure what to do. I think the grey looks to mannish. I might have to buy the uber expensive icebreaker line. Does anyone have any recommedations for a similar sweater along the same line? you guys seem to have a lot of ibex going on.

    congratulations who ever got the last medium UGS

    ps anyone from Minnesota?

    If you're considering going the uber expensive Icebreaker route, then consider also the Ibex LongTrail sweater that's NOT on sale, and also their Ibex "midlayer" category Switchback line and Carrie hoody are pretty heavy and sweaterlike. I have the switchback pullover and it's wonderfully thick and warm. The small switchback pullover would fit you. I wear the small and I'm 5'5" 140 lbs. The medium was a bit too roomy on me, I wanted it more form fitting.

    thanks! I was thinking about the switchback pullover. How tight is it? I want to be able to wear a jacket above it for biking along the river. I don't want to be too "flappy" when I am wearing it either- gotta show off the figure! But either way it is half the price of ice breaker stuff.
