OK, it’s dumping, winds are howling, time to get serious about your snow clothing. The coolest riders on the slopes will likely be the warmest this year: get into the unique McNair Mountain Shirt, which has launched in Australia and New Zealand for the 2015 winter season.

They’re made from high quality felted merino wool in their atelier in Yorkshire, England, an area that has been famous for its wool industry for hundreds of years.

“A McNair shirt works with the elements rather than against them. A fierce wind is transformed into a cooling breeze” says designer and pro-boarder Neil McNair, “and a snowstorm becomes a thin white outer coat. You feel comfortable yet connected, rather than cut-off and clammy. It’s naturally breathable which prevents you from overheating.”

The McNair Mountain Shirt comes in a choice of three merino fabrics: virgin Australian merino, mid-weight and heavy-weight, and a recycled Chilean merino. There are two lengths, and different cuts for men and women. You’ll stand out from the herd in one of these, plus they would rock Japan & be ideal for NZ too. Available from www.mcnairshirts.com
