Step inside our mill

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 wool shirts regulate 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 or Jacket will keep you more comfortable in more variable conditions
for longer than anything else on the mountain.
