Made from 100% Australia Merino wool, the Merino Zip Neck is our 230gsm winter weight base layer. This means it is naturally temperature regulating; keeping you warm in cold climates and cool in warm climates. It’s odour repellent, extremely breathable, silky smooth and non-itch. Designed with thumb gussets and flat lock seams for extra comfort, the 1/4 zip active fit keeps you looking good and feeling great no matter how hard you push yourself. Ideal for hiking, climbing, general leisure, running, cycling, rowing and snow sports
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: Angela Kiefer on 6 June 2019I recently purchased two of the 230gsm thermal zip tops, one for myself and one for my husband. What I have noticed, which makes me rather envious, is that his is both thicker, softer (and therefore slightly warmer) than mine. Is this a consistent and expected variation between men’s and women’s, or is this what you would regard as a possible manufacturing anomaly? Love wearing his....much warmer and less scratchy than mine. Contacted XTM re. the anomaly. The only explanation from XTM was that they were most likely cut from different batches of cloth. So consistency of quality is variable it seems. So this anomaly prevented me from giving them a full five stars. Cheers.
ReviewBy: Alana on 27 April 2019I really like this jumper! I especially appreciate the thumb holes in the sleeves, the half zip, collar that is not too high and it runs true to size. I have worn the jumper several times over the past few weeks and while it is resistant to smells the fabric seems to look more 'roughed up' than I would have expected. Otherwise I do enjoy wearing it and would purchase again.
