Even in damp or wet conditions, the Ibex Men’s Wool Aire Sweater is perfect for backcountry travel and snow sports. Ripstop nylon shell fabric blocks the wind, while unique Merino wool loft insulation makes it ultra lightweight and compressible.
The Wool Aire Sweater is a technical performance jacket that works as hard as you do in extreme winter conditions. The 90% Australian Merino lofted wool insulation in the Wool Aire Sweater was designed to match the qualities of down and synthetic insulations; like synthetics, it can keep you warm even when wet, and like down it has a high warmth-to-weight ratio and is very compressible. Wool loft insulation offers superiority over down and synthetics, though, due to the structure of wool fibers. Wool is also natural and sustainable, as well as durable and easy to care for.
Other features of the Wool Aire Sweater include reverse coil zippered center front and hand pockets, a 6" chest pocket, and an interior mesh pocket that doubles as a stuff sack to pack the Wool Aire Sweater down small. An adjustable hem with cord lock system and elastic cuffs seal in warmth. The semi-fitted cut allows you to wear a fully weatherproof shell over the Wool Aire Sweater, though it can also be worn as an outer layer.
