This Ibex Hooded Wool Indie Top is great. With the Ibex Hooded Wool Indie Top you get a solidly crafted top what has wonderful fabric. I have used my Ibex Hooded Wool Indie Top for about 6 months now and have grown to love it and grab it each time I hit the wilderness. Stitching is perfect, fabric is tough yet feels good and the fit is a great blend between athletic and normal. Most of Ibex's gear is made in the USA, with his one being made in Canada. With this being hand crafted the price reflects that, along with being mostly Made in the USA. Berz Rating: 100/100

Thanks for the help! As far as weight though, I was wondering what the total weight of the hoodie is?

At 6'1, athletic build, and 175 lbs, what size? Medium or Large?

Responded on

This item has more of a slimmer fit so I suggest sizing up to a Large.

Hooded Indie From Ibex

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Such a great piece... 18.5 micron makes it super soft and smooth, yet at 195 g/m, it makes it a warm piece for Spring, Fall, or a great mid layer in winter.

close but no cigar

  • Gender: Male

Like the product but it was a slimmer fit than I care for. I am 5'11 180. Looking for the perfect hoodie to help me make it through our mild Texas winters. I think it would make a nice mid-layer, a pricey one though. I think you would want pockets. Everything needs some place to put something. Sent it back. Maybe I was asking too much but whatevs, I said I was looking for the perfect hoodie.

How does this compare to the R1 hoody as a technical base/midlayer?

Best Answer Responded on

R1 will be a lot warmer than the Indie. Merely comparing the weight of the fabric, the Indie uses 195 g/m2 fabric, whereas R1 is 6.8 oz/yard^2 fabric according to Patagonia website, which is roughly 230 g/m2. But more than just the weight, the inside of R1 is gridded fleece, which creates air pockets and helps trap more heat. The Indie fabric on the other hand is flat.

I can't comment on how the breathability compares though, and how warm they will keep you while wet.

Another point of comparison is how high the zipper comes up to. R1's collar comes up to just below the nose (yep, I have the men's version), whereas Indie's zipper comes to the chin (this is from women's version).

Great answer. Thanks catiecoo!

Love it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My husband loves this. It's the perfect layering piece. Thin and light weight but warm when you need it. Thumb loops and hood help it block out cold and it still looks good hanging out in town.

Everybody needs one of these!

Everybody needs one of these! This piece can go from bike to slopes and will amaze you with how comfortable and versatile it is. I love the performance fit and thumb loops of this piece.
