XTM Balaclava is made from 100% superfine Australian Merino wool. Merino has greater capacity to absorb moisture vapour than synthetic fibres because its internal structure is more complex than synthetic fibres - creating more sites where moisture can bind.

The result of a brainstorming session between three hugely influential figures within the Australian snow scene, life time owner Pete “Fozza” Forras, NSW’s snowy cowboy Gary “X” Rae and the salmon of knowledge Bill “the Uncle” Dalton. The three decided that they wanted to create a brand that would change the face of Australia’s snow sports industry and show the world Australia is a country to be taken seriously in winter sports. From that small cafe in Sydney XTM was born. The name XTM is an abbreviation for the term “cross the mountain” or “X-The Mountain”.
By: Karen Marsh on 7 August 2017I bought the balaclava for my son who rides early in the morning when it is cold. The lightness of the product means he can wrap it around his wrist and it is not intrusive to his riding. The merino wool is not bulky or prickly and provides good warmth for the face and around the ears-he has nicknamed it his "head sock" . Very happy with product
