About Ibex Giro Cycling Jersey - Merino Wool, Full Zip, Short Sleeve (For Men)
Closeouts. Probably the softest jersey you've ever worn. Ibex's Giro cycling jersey is made of superfine, moisture-wicking, merino wool, with a form-fitting shape and full-zip front for complete ventilation control.
Itch-free merino wool is temperature regulating, moisture wicking and odor resistant

I have only had this jersey for a short time but the quality seems to be top notch. I have Swobo and Icebreaker wool jerseys, and the Ibex is probably the highest quality of them all, right be hind the Icebreaker. I am 6'3" 210, and the XL was a perfect fit.

There are quite a few notable brands of cycling wear that utilIze Merino wool. What makes Ibex somewhat special is it is smartly designed, well made, and here in the USA. This jersey in particular is nice for the full zip, grippy bottom hem, and it looks good. This type of wool weave is very soft, not too thin nor thick -just right, for one of the great attributes of wools is its wide temp usage. The fit for me as a 45chest made the XL a perfect fit; not super loose, or over stretched, but nicely tailored to the skin. The pockets are high and tight -which some dislike, but my experience with wool jerseys are over-stretched pockets sometimes. Maybe Ibex planned for this. You have to be careful how to wash, and even with the avoidence of hot water and the dryer, a super-slight shrinkage will occur over its life just from continual sweat and evaporation. Hopefully this is over a LONG life, as I expect. I would rather shoot a tad to the larger size for many reasons, and if it is by a mere amount, you can wet and stick in the dryer for short spells to customize. Lastly, it is nice to get such a high-end jersey here, because frankly: I just can't afford Ibex's regular prices, always been too high for me!
