Head into the woods and onto the trail with the endlessly comfortable Ibex Men's Jackson Shirt. Crafted entirely from wool, this shirts wicks moisture away from your skin and is quick-drying to handle anything your day of adventuring might send your way. The sharp button-down design gives you a pass for more formal events, while the dual chest pockets stash cold beverages when you only have two hands to raid the open bar with.

Post Hike Picnic or Dinner Date?
You decide. Jackson can be a hiker's best friend, but is stylish enough to wear out or to the office.
Merino Now Comes With A Collar!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times

Merino is popular for a reason. It is naturally moisture wicking, odor repellant, dries quickly, and is all-around awesome for the outdoors lover. Various brands have been crafting merino thermal undergarments for years, and more recently stretchy merino hiking tees.
Ibex has introduced a game-changer with a fine-knit merino fabric that maintains all of the benefits, but acts and looks like a more formal shirt.
The Jackson shirt can go anywhere and shine - on the trail, on a boat, to the mountains, to work, or out for dinner. It's versatility and performance make the somewhat steep price tag worth it.
The fit is athletic and slim, which is perfect for me and can be hard to find even with sporty brands. I got a Medium, and the cut is comfortable but fitted enough to look good. The length is great. You wouldn't think finding a longer men's shirt would be a challenge, but it can be a pain and Ibex delivers here. The snaps are easier to do up than buttons and look cool with pearl detail. The plaid makes a great transition between outside play and inside work. After many washings (line dry), lots of sweat, and a fair amount of seawater my shirt still looks as new. The collar is crisp and there are no obvious wrinkles. Awesome.
My only complaint is that the shirt is somewhat itchy (much better after washing), but I think that's the trade-off for any merino product. The performance still outweighs this downside.
Killer Piece, cant believe its merino!

This piece has the function of merino and the feel of a light synthetic. This is due to it being a woven fabri rather than a knitted fabric which is a somewhat recent development in technology. It is light enough to wear mid summer and regulate your body temperature. Did I mention it is 100% merino!? It is also soft enough to wear next to skin. Not to mention it looks great!!
