I have a veritable farm of Ibex, Icebreaker, and Smartwool garments. Baaaa. My preferred brand is Ibex both because of quality and customer service. Plus, it is a US company that often makes products and/or gets their wool locally, notably Montana, aka the mother country. However, when I compare my Ibex and Icebreaker NTS base layers this Smartwool NTS zip is my favorite shirt simply because I think it provides more for the money both in weight and features. Come on Ibex don't be...er, well, out smarted.
