Technical and functional.
Staying warm and dry when you're on the move through wet and cold environments can be next to impossible unless you're wearing the Icebreaker Men's Shak Classic Full-Zip Top. Made with 100% merino wool sourced from New Zealand, the Shak naturally regulates body temperature, wicks moisture, and resists odor-causing microbial growth, making it a great midlayer whether you're skiing, backcountry touring, or hiking during the colder months of the year.

For years, I knew when my merino mid layer piece would finally wear out, I was going to buy the Ibex Shak. Simple design with a single pocket, perfect neck height and form fit. 100% merino for comfort and performance. Perfect weight for a mid layer piece. This is my main mid layer piece for backcountry and lift served skiing, winter climbing, and for general all season use (skiing, climbing, hiking, biking, camping, lounging). If I could change one thing it may be to have a slightly beefier zipper. Love this garment!
Exactly how it should be
The perfect wool midlayer. Ibex sets the bar high with the quality . I'm 6' and 200lbs and the large fits well.
American Made Wool Domination!
The Ibex Shak Classic Jacket is a USA made wool jacket. Ibex with this Shak Classic Jacket has set the standard with what a quality heirloom garment should look like. Buy once, cry once with this one! Excellent stitching, exceptional materials and a great fit sum up this Shak Classic Jacket. This is a good weight garment to use as a midlayer in clod conditions, or as a outerlayer in slightly cold conditions. I have used mine as my outerwear in backpacking in cold conditions where you want breath-ability but the ability to keep winds away. I have had no issues with the integrity of this garment and have used it for over a year. I have use it under my outerwear mostly in very cold conditions. Being wool it does not absorb stink and will keep you relatively warm even if wet. If you want a heirloom garment that someone will say, that was Grandpa or Grandma's wool jacket, check out the Ibex Shak Classic Jacket. Berz Rating: 100/100
