Of nature not against it.
Connected not separate.
For years we have gone to great lengths to protect ourselves from mountain weather by trying to insulate ourselves inside a bubble of waterproof plastic – taped seams, cinched-in hoods and waists, internal ankle gaiters, fabrics with a 20,000mm hydrostatic head and all the palaver.
If you spend a lot of time in the mountains you probably already know the truth.
For 95% of days this is nonsense.
Our clever, enhanced merino regulates temperature naturally and gently. It turns a biting wind into a cooling breeze and a snow storm into a white outer coat. You still feel the weather but in a warm, connected way and when you get busy, sweat easily escapes through the fabric.
A McNair Mountain Shirt will keep you more comfortable in more variable conditions for longer than anything else on the mountain.
