Looking to buy a new long sleeve 1/4 zip wool jersey. Checking out Ibex, Wabi Woolens, Swobo, and Surly. What are some of your experiences with the various companies?

Are you lookin for function or fashion. Fashionably, the wool jerseys are awesome! Performance, really depends upon your riding style, location, and what you are looking for.

Happy to provide more details, if you let us know what some of your criteria are for purchase.

Function - I love merino wool and how it feels. I was thinking it would make a great cool weather riding jersey here in central VA. Riding style? Old-school straight-up cross country.

The only wool jersey I have is a long sleeve Smartwool brand. It is great, but I can't say how it compares to the other brands. It is warm, does not stink. I like the plain dark grey color and style. It is thin enough to wear with another layer on really cold days. Perfect for me when it's in the 30-40 degree range.
