Model: Ibex Shak Stretchy Vest

Comfort Range

Wool is warm (even when wet), breathable, and comfortable in a wide range of conditions (though you’ll need to add a shell in big wind). Made from soft, expedition-weight merino, the Shak delivers on all three fronts: “It made an excellent midlayer whether I was hiking and skiing in Alaska’s Talkeetna Mountains in breezy 20°F temps or hanging around camp on warm spring nights,” reports one tester.


The long cut covers the waistline when you bend forward, but the torso is trim, so go up a size if you like a looser fit.


We wished for handpockets.


It made an excellent midlayer.
