    Hmm - mine is a men's cut jersey (it came from New Belgium Brewery as a gift from DH), and a size SM. With a base layer under, it's definitely NOT skin tight. I think the Voler site had a women's cut, so it would fit a bit better, with shorter arms.

    Duh. I didn't even think of my Hincapie LS base layer as something that could be worn alone. The white one I definitely would not. It's super lightweight (which is why the white one is completely see-through even when it's dry), runs small and comes in XS. My Small one was skin tight before I lost all my upper body muscle.

    I am wearing the Smart Wool quarter zip right now. It fits perfectly, tight, but I could wear a Craft base layer under it. It's not even too long. It is so soft, I don't want to take it off! I will definitely use it for riding when I have a jacket or vest on, x country skiing as a mid layer, and alone for running or hiking.
    It would have to be really cold for me to wear this as a base layer.
    My only complaint is that I can't stand anything touching my neck and the turtleneck comes up a bit too high for me. I have it partially unzipped, so that's fine.

    Couldn't resist this one: http://shop.ibex.com/Apparel/Womens-...ez-Wayfarer-PO

    First, I bought the purple and after receiving/loving it, broke down and got the black.

    Added a new Shak---the deep blue (Oxford?) is irresistible. The rest of this year's colors aren't calling out to me.

    A couple months ago, I got the Juliet Tunic in black polka dot, which is a nice piece as well. I'm not crazy about the Juliet patterns/colors this year, but I love tunics/longer sweaters. This is one that I can wear with slacks to work.

    I follow their directions, but nothing I've bought from ibex (besides the bras) seem to wash well. The seams always end up twisted, the hemlines uneven, and they shrink in length but not width so they never fit right again. It makes me sad because their clothes are so pretty.

    Do you have a good flat drying rack? I had to order a three-pack online, because they don't seem to have them in stores at all any more. Woolens always need to be blocked to dry.


    This isn't exactly what I have, but similar. Pretty cheaply made, but they get the job done. I was so disappointed that Lehman's Hardware, with all the different gear they sell for air drying clothes, doesn't sell even one flat rack, not even a cheap Chinese one like those, let alone I would've paid three times the price for a half decent Amish made wood and string version if they'd offered one.

    I am planning to get one of those when the winter sale comes around...don't want to pay full price but that is a piece I'd like to have. I'm with you on the colors this year...what happened to the black argyle they had last year?

    I've been drooling over my Ibex catalog. Just can't justify the expense, though. GLC has some nice pieces for sale...but I'm just not in the position to add anything new to my life at the moment. I have one Icebreaker short sleeve shirt that I wear all the time, one Ibex turtle-neck long sleeve shirt, and one Ibex long sleeve cycling jersey, and that'll have to do for the time being. I enjoy reading this thread, though and living vicariously through all of you!

    Yes, I've actually had decent drying things (wide variety) because I had no dryer for years and there are creepy disgusting bugs that get in the laundry here if you hang it outside. It seems like it's a problem in the way the fabric is cut. Probably not as much of a problem on the solids, but my one patterned pullover is clearly longer on one side than another, visible since the pattern is pretty much linear and there are more lines at the left hem than the right despite a straight, horizontal line across the upper seam! Not quite as obvious, but the twisted wool t-shirt seems to have been sewn with the fabric the "wrong" way, so when it shrank, it shrank twisted rather than horizontal or vertical. I'm sure it isn't a problem with all of their stuff but I've been unlucky and I don't want to order anything else sight-unseen.

    Not to be an enabler (ahem) but REI carries the Juliet tunic. I was able to get mine for 20% off when REI had one of its "members" sales....

    I did see that REI carries it...if they have a big sale before Ibex has theirs that is something to keep in mind!

    I think I need this in the teal or the wasabi. Can I justify buying new wool while I'm selling so much of my older stuff to make room?

    That's too bad. I think it's more of an issue with their lightest things. That fabric has to be super hard to cut straight. DH does have a super lightweight Ibex short-sleeve base layer that's not cut perfectly. But of all our pieces (and we have WAY too many ) that's the only one. Wish I could say the same for Smartwool - the difference in quality is really noticeable on that particular aspect.

    I rode in my Smart Wool 1/4 zip top today. I now have 3 of them, thanks to GLC, you enabler . Worn it hiking, just around town, and riding today, in temperatures of 57-61, with a short sleeved base layer and a wind vest. It was perfect.

    Of course you can justify it.
    How's this: "This one wonderful item is taking the place of the 12 things I got rid of. I am still way ahead."
    Each day is a gift, that's why it is called the present.
