I've been wearing these for the past 3 years, mainly around work and home and for day hikes and golfing and bike rides after work. These are most comfortable when the temps are above 60°F and I wear them daily when it is. I wore these in the heat and humidity of Costa Rica and Hawaii and during the above 100°F heat of summer in Colorado. They manage moisture well. Wool is not just for cold weather. The first one I bought 3 years ago, looks as good as the ones I bought last summer. They are certainly more durable than my cotton polos. The fit and finish are perfect for me. I wear a large and I'm 6'4" and 210 lbs. Unlike some of my cotton polos, the collar doesn't become misshapen over time and I never need to iron them. These have become a standard part of my wardrobe and daily wear. May Ibex never cancel them!
