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”.
A must for hikers and cyclistsBy: Zachary on 2 June 2019Nominally water resistant and quite wind resistant, I’ve found this balaclava to be essential in my cycling kit. It’s easy to handwash and quick to dry. It’s cool enough for warm windy weather but is also useful during the coldest Melbourne mornings.
