Outside® Magazine - 2018 Winter Buyer’s Guide

“Top of our list for high-output winter activities is the 3-Season Helmet beanie from up-and-coming Chicago company Snowshed. It’s made from (super)fine merino wool and fits nicely into your pocket. We wore the 3-Season beneath our bike and ski helmets without any bulk, itch, or overheating, thanks to its thin profile.”

Outside® Editor's Pick, "Best Winter Hats of 2018"

SUPER COMFORTABLE AND GREAT FIT

✶✶✶✶✶

“This top looks and fits great! It's the most comfortable top that I own and I wear it all the time. I never knew wool could be so comfortable. Not only that, it's very warm without the bulk. Because of its natural odor resistance I rarely need to wash it. Love this top and now a fan of SnowShed.”

MY LIFE IS NOW COMPLETE!!!

✶✶✶✶✶

"...I am beyond satisfied.  I work outside all day high up in the air as a Lineman.  I can honestly say for the first time in my life I am warm and comfortable all day.  SnowShed is a game changer for my type of work!  The feeling of the fabric on my skin is so soft and comfortable it's like I have my favorite pajamas on under my work clothes all day!  Thanks SnowShed!!"

Dan H. (Men's GUNNISON Pants & CASCADE Zip Shirt)

COULD WEAR THESE FOR DAYS

✶✶✶✶✶

“Very comfortable, very warm -- on cold days I even wear these under my pants while sitting at my desk job! Have tested them out in harsher environments as well (see bicycling in the snow) and was not disappointed.”

Zach N. (Men's GUNNISON Pants)

IN LOVE!

✶✶✶✶✶

“Everyone, buy this shirt immediately! It is so comfortable and warm and I am in love with the colors!”

GREAT FOR COMMUTING

✶✶✶✶✶

"Snowshed products are geared towards outdoor athletes but I have found they are perfect for a midwest city commuter.  Waiting on the train platform at 7am in -30 wind chill Snowshed under-layers come in handy.  I have a black scoop neck that layers perfectly under my work clothes.  I look forward to trying the leggings next."

Made in America - Tested around the world!

2016/17 Product Testing in New Zealand

From Treble Cone to Cardrona to The Remarkables, we tested these garments for weeks in all types of conditions with amazing success!  Not only did we sweat up a storm in the spring skiing, but the garments never felt wet and clammy against the skin AND these pieces didn't smell after days of testing!!

Tags Made in the USA too!

Made in USA is our pride!  In addition to the current USA Cut & Sew operations, we also have all the Washing Instruction Tags, Hang Tags, and Packaging Made in the USA too!  We're striving to source all of our trimming materials in the USA by 2019.  

2015/16 Product Testing in an Australian blizzard

This was a mid-trip stop to Thredbo Resort in Australia. Luckily, this was the snowiest day of the year!  Had some amazing runs and met some great people.  On the book ends of this powder day was checking out several Merino ranches and meeting with a number of the sheep ranchers in preparation to choose the finest Australian wool for 2016/17 and beyond!

ECO-FRIENDLY & NATURAL FABRICS

Merino wool is a 100% natural and sustainable fiber.  Low environmental impact, big love for our world!  Once your garment has run it's life out, you can drop it in the trash and be confident the fabric will completely recycle itself back into nature!
