Great Ibex product. I'm 5.11, 170 and medium fits perfect over baselyer and long-sleeve cycling shirt. I've got a small one too, which is very slim fit over a short-sleeve cycling jersey. I don't like pockets in the back as I have my stuff in saddle bag so this vest is perfect.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by M4MSF from San Francisco, CA on Sunday, December 9, 2012San Francisco is temperate and I work at a university, and this is the perfect casual, attractive, functional garment. A merino wool full zip vest with a side pocket for my cell phone is practical for a little extra warmth for an air conditioned office (even though it's sportswear) or a cool day. The zipper allows regulation of body temperature. The slim fit allows me to wear this over a button down or t-shirt, and under a blazer without being bukly or looking frumpy, with khakis, jeans and even shorts!
I have both the red and blue, that add an unexpected and desireable pop of color to most ocassions in the office or while running errands around town.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by WilliamInNashville from Nashville, TN on Thursday, November 29, 2012Love Ibex - I'm now at 22 pieces...gotta stop this. THIS is a great layering item, and is quite stylish to boot. It dresses up a standard T-shirt with its mock turtleneck neck line. The only flaw I find, is in the design. There is only one pocket on the piece and is located at the left kidney. I know...strange place for a pocket - but given that...how about putting another one on the other side - if even just for the sake of symmetry. Aside from that, a keeper (I bought two; one of each available color). The blue is especially nice IMO.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Chaz from Tasmania Australia on Thursday, November 1, 2012I bought this vest to wear as an extra layer when I went skiing. However I ordered a small, I'm only 68kg, but this size was way too small so I gave it to my wife for a perfect fit.
- Best Uses: Bike riding, Everyday wear, Ski layer
- Cons: Small Sizing For Men
- Pros: Good for layering, Light Weight, Well Made
Reviewed by Gravity from Bend, OR on Sunday, October 28, 2012This vest is beautifully made, as you would expect from Ibex; however, I found its construction to be too short and wide for the men in my family (slender with long torsos). I ordered the small for my 15 year old son who is 6' 125 lbs. It fit looser in width than I would prefer and was way too short for him. It fit my 12 year old much better in length but was too gaping in width to bother keeping (he is 5'1", 90 lbs). If you have a stocky build, this may fit you perfectly.
- Pros: Beautifully Made, Nice Mini Side Pocket, Rich Color
