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.

 McNair PlasmaDry™. Natural fabrics reinvented. Made for whatever the wine waiter can throw at you. Yes, we’re guilty of banging on about them, but the properties of the treated fabrics are incredible – and we’re proud that the process is far more eco-friendly than most things out there. You may have already seen how the fabrics deal with water in the video on this page – but as it’s the #weekend, we thought it would be relevant to demonstrate how PlasmaDry™ deals with a far more dangerous liquid: #wine. The PlasmaDry™ treatment has been developed to repel not just water but dirt and stains, meaning you shouldn’t have to wash it as often, and you don’t have to panic about that stray glass of red. The full video can be found via the link in our bio.  This is us at the @keswickfestival within the Trade Marquee all weekend, come by say hi and learn all about our new PlasmaDry™ #moleskin & #corduroy shirts as well as the #MountainShirt that started it all! #KMF16 #handmade  @calumnduthie taking the #MountainShirt to #MilfordSound New Zealand with a Southern Hemisphere selfie. #UnplasticJacket #merino #wool  The Men’s PlasmaDry™ Corduroy Work Shirt in Deep Blue. Whatever #corduroy means to you at the moment, this #shirt will cause a bit of a re-think. A classic over shirt reinvented in our brilliant PlasmaDry™ #fabric. The style is rugged McNair with patch pockets, locker loop on the back and a back placket with subtle contrast van dyke stitching. The strength, beauty and added PlasmaDry™ performance make this shirt another extremely versatile everyday shirt. :@paudiephoto
