Great wool top

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The endearing shak has made an impression on me, for sure. Soft and well woven, I suppose there's a reason for it's legendary status for Ibex. Which, btw, is one of the best producer of wool clothing in the world. USA Made, terrific quality and I love how it fits snug which makes it functional as a base, mid or top. This partnered with a merino stoic t or my zepher zip t underneath can take me anywhere from 25f to 60f, courtesy of its zip feature. It's got a butt flap, which compared to the classic shak full zip makes it look a little frumpy as a top layer. I could care less really. Order with peace of mind...between backcountry.com and ibex's tear-free warranty, you cannot go wrong.
