Ibex Wool Aire Review

Niels Oomkes

I am a multi-sport endurance athlete, and love to get out into the great outdoors to push the body to its limit. Most of my weekend expeditions, adventures, trips, or vacations are planned around running, biking, snowshoeing, camping, or anything else that will allow me to enjoy nature's exquisite beauty.

    Does it breathe when you are cranking hard? The problem with down is that when you get going, your core heats the warming properties too much and you sweat out the clothing. Merino wool gives me hope. Also, I would be interested to know how this holds up under a good deal of washing . . . at the price tag it’s at, I would want it to last a few seasons.

    The review is AWESOME and has me thinking. Thanks for a GREAT WRITE-UP

    I don’t know if I’d use it for hard core running or highly aerobic activities. You definitely can of course. The jacket does breathe quite well, but you may start to see the sweat soak the coat after a period of time. Great thing is that it will keep you warm even when wet.
    This jacket is great as a mid-layer for something like skiing. An outer shell over top keeps the elements out, and the Wool Aire Sweater will keep you warm.

    Would love to see a demo — or at least have instructions on how to pack it down into the pocket. I have a women’s version and the pocket seems too small to do it plus the lining seems delicate.

    Hi Pamela,

    Thanks for the comment. Here is a video that shows the basics of packing a puffy into a designated stuff pocket, while it is not specific to the Ibex Aire the process is the same.
