Ibex Men's Shak Jersey
Cut close with a flat lock seam construction for comfortable layering, the Ibex Shak Jersey is a natural alternative to polyester middle layers, featuring the right balance of moisture-wicking density for skiing, hiking and running in cold weather conditions. Significantly longer than most zippered pullovers, the Shak's front zipper extends halfway down the front of the jersey, so you enjoy more ventilation potential than most middle layers, especially if you're wearing it over a light silk shirt. The itch-free Merino wool knit holds the dye at the core of each fiber, so you won't have to hassle with color bleeds or fading.
- Dense textured Merino wool knit
- Flat lock construction
- 1/2-length front zip opening
- Easy care wash instructions
- Weight: 18 oz. in medium size

Reviews - Ibex Men's Shak Jersey
Excellent high performance and fit sweater
Excellent quality, fit and performance for this 1/4 zip smartwool sweater. Looks as good as high style fashion product but with superior durability for those with an active lifestyle and who like to wear their sweaters frequently. Snug fit but not too tight - you can wear a dress or casual shirt underneath as well as multiple performance layers.
Every day in the winter/fall/early spring my Shak Jersey isn't too far from where I am, I have 2 and am getting another 2 this year, they are the most comfortable and warm sweater I have ever worn. Good for everyday use, hiking, or camping.
As others have said, great top for a midlayer piece. Fabric is a little rough for a base layer to me, but it's tolerable. Like the way it breathes, after a couple washings it's not nearly so stiff. Does seem to run a bit large based on measurements to me. I went with the 2X, kind of wishing I had gone with the single as I'm right on the borderline. Made very well, while I haven't put it through anything to severely test it, it does feel more "stout" than fleece tops of the same temperature range.
