Ibex Outdoor Clothing will cease operations in February - SNEWS
It will sell through remaining inventory and asks fans to support some of its favorite causes.

Today, Ibex confirmed its dissolution and liquidation in a letter posted on Ibex’s website. On November 6, SNEWS reported that Ibex had begun to lay off some of its Vermont staff. We are sad to learn that management has not been able to drive the results needed to sustain this much-loved brand. It is a sad day, and we wish the best for all of the people whose jobs have been and will be impacted.

Ibex is asking fans of the brand to continue to support causes that they hold dear by donating to Conservation Alliance “to help fuel and fund the protection and creation of North America’s wild places” and Outdoor Industry Association “to help folks find jobs in the amazing outdoor industry and to support its Outdoor Foundation, which focuses on getting kids outside.”
