I do like this soft shell, although I was skeptical at first due to the light weight. I have worn it riding horse in 40 degree weather with a light layer underneath and kept warm and comfortable. The sleeve length suits me and the length in back keeps me warm while in the saddle. I am 5'7" and 12... Read More

    Ibex makes a great product. I read the reviews of this jacket & ordered it based on the sleeve length issue. The biggest complaint I have about women's wear is the arms are too short & my wrists get cold. With this jacket I can extend my arms in any direction & wrists stay covered! Yay. (BTW- my "ape" index is a +1) I am only 5'4" so I wouldn't say my arms are unusually long either.

    It is a stylish jacket with a good cut for short- waisted people. I wonder how the fit would be for a taller person. (The jacket isn't very long from shoulder to hip.)

    Great jacket, warm, lightweight, looks great. It is a bit more stiff than supple and that might bother some, not me.

    I bought a version of this jacket as a sample of number of years ago (from the maker's tent sale) and regrettably consigned it. After searching for another like product, i decided that if it's not broke don't fix it and hurriedly purchased it here. I did say the sleeve length is long, but that's not necessarily a bad thing- when you move it still covers- other just might be shorter that I (5'6"). I love all of Ibex's products- you get what you pay for. I won't make the mistake of consigning this one.

    I was planning on this jacket being my mulitpurpose jacket - my fault i didn't read more carefully to notice that there is no lining in the jacket and i do not need another gortex shell.

    I returned the jacket because the body is very bulky, almost no tapering so it looks very very boxy on as well as the need for layers underneath since there is no lining as mentioned above.

    I am 5'8'' and have longer arms and a shorter torso. the arms fit wonderfully which I was thrilled about but could not overlook the body fit.

    I was delighted to find this jacket to be much nicer looking than it appears in the photo on the website. I love the quality of Ibex clothing. This blended material is rather stiff, but I am sure it softens as other reviewers have said it does. I was sad to do it, but I sent the jacket back because the torso was not form fitting. It felt like I had a lot of excess fabric around my chest and stomach, which is unflattering and inefficient for warmth. The arm length and shoulder width however felt just right. I am 5'3" and weigh 107.

About Ibex

Ibex is all about wool. Their philosophy is simple... to capitalize on the superior performance of wool fibers and combine that with technical innovation and inspired designs. Ibex wool is worn by everyone from moms to mountain guides - not to mention outdoor enthusiasts who tend to overheat when wearing synthetics. Ibex wool shatters any perceptions you might have had about wearing wool - from its luxurious hand, bred exclusively from New Zealand merino sheep (which is absolutely itch free) to its human-friendly climate (no other natural fiber regulates temperature so effectively).
