    I thought of the long trail but I think the stripe down the back is funky not fashionable (sorry if I hurt some feelings, I am just a no frills kind of girl.

    The Switchback pullover is not flappy.
    I am 5'5", 140 lbs, pear-shaped. The medium fits me with a bit of room for underlayers, but I went for the small instead because it fit me like a glove and looked very tailored and sleek on me. I *could* have worn either size, but I have small shoulders and the small one had the shoulders seams in just the right place for me. Also, I only wear their ultra thin merino base layer under it, so I didn't need the extra room for things underneath it. It is by no means loose or flappy, the neck and sleeves are fitted and you could easily slide a jacket over them. It's a very nice thick soft kind of wool weave with a nice texture more like a sweater, not smooth.
    I love the Ibex persimmon color in traffic!

    I have the Switchback full zip. I'm 5'8" and 145 lbs and wear a Large in Ibex tops. Loooooong arms and Loooooong torso and sort of wide shoulders.

    My Switchback *is* flappy and loose on me, but I wear it as a jacket over other clothes so it's ok.

    The length on it is perfect. I've been finding that Ibex sizes are pretty standard across the different styles. All my tops are L and all fit great.

    Thanks Grog! The best I've come up with is an outdoorsy discount store that has some of the "other" brands discounted.

    There is a small bike shop that sometimes marks their Ibex down. Other than that I have no idea where he got his Ibex. Unless there is a store that is not listed on line. I even checked to see who Ibex mentions as retailers on their website.

    SnC has been having some great wooly offers. I got the men's SW Slacker pant at 11:08 pm last night.
    Yes, SHE can.

    I got the UGS in XL. Though I'm short, I'm not exactly petite, KWIM?

    OK, so I tested my new "uber expensive" Ibex gloves today:
    http://www.ibexwear.com/F06/View_Pro...&CategoryLine=
    I rode a 13 miler this morning at 35 dgrees, and a 20 miler this afternoon at 45 degrees. My hands kept comfortable! Big differnece over my other gloves. The small fit me nicely, and I still have some room to put in smartwool liners if it gets way colder like in the 20's. My hands will be fine now- what a relief. It was awful the other with TWO pairs of gloves on and my fingers in terrible pain from the cold, and that was at 50 degrees! The wind while riding is what makes it so hard to keep warm when biking.
    But hey, at this price you can BET I'm going to take really GOOD care of these gloves!
    I wore my new balaclava today too and it was just perfect.

    Lisa - your link isn't working because they launched their new 2006-2007 line now. Are these the ones you bought ? ($85 )

    Woman's Climawool Glove.

    There were also another pair for $79 that were similar.
