It has been a long time in coming but the seamless underwear from Ibex is finally here. While the main focus of the product line is for the ladies men aren’t left out in the cold. The products all use 18.5 micron merino wool with a bit of nylon and spandex to provide stretch and a body hugging fit.
Seamless is a bit of a misnomer. The Balance line is constructed in a fashion somewhat akin to how socks are made, that is in a tubular style. Their are some small seams present, but only in places that should, according to Ibex, not rub. The combination of materials and sewing ought to create base layer clothing that is quite pleasant to wear.
- Made from 86% 18.5 micron merino wool; 10% nylon, and 4% lycra.
- Available for men and women though the women’s style predominate including, of course, the long-awaited sports bra and sports top.
- Available October, 2007 with MSRPs of $22.50 to $49.00 depending on the particular style style of apparel.
