Merino wool is one of my most favorite fabrics. As a matter of fact, I’m wearing a merino tee as I write this. Anyway, I’ve been wearing this Ibex Giro Merino Wool Jersey all fall and love it. It’s my first wool jersey and it definitely won’t be my last. The best thing about merino wool is how it wicks moisture, keeping you dry while regulating your body heat; two priorities of mine I pay special attention to during the fall. It’s also made in the USA!
The jersey is full-zip, form-fitting and close to what I’d call a “race cut”. It features three pockets in addition to a small reflective Ibex logo on the middle pocket – subtle and functional. Speaking of which, this jersey is the perfect synergy of subtlety and functionality. Besides keeping me drier than my ‘race’ jerseys, it’s also barren of large logos, a quality I’ve grown to appreciate.
