With a clean cut and versatile layering options, the Ibex Shak Full Zip is a 24/7 kind of jacket. Form-fitting but with classic lines, the Shak kept me comfortable in the office during the week and cozy as a mid-layer on weekend expeditions in particularly cold and windy conditions. The breathable, reactant Merino wool makes it so I pretty much never have to take it off. And as far as light jackets go, it’s dressy enough for work, with concealed pockets and a full-zip front, but rugged enough to withstand some serious use and abuse. A girl couldn’t ask for much more from a light jacket. Available at Northern Lights. $160; ibex.com.
