2018 Ski Gear for Sunny Days

“Keeping your head warm is smart, even on beautiful days - it’s still winter, after all. SNOWSHED’s soft Merino cap is thin and slight enough to fit under a helmet, so you don’t have to take it off when you strap on your safety gear.”

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 superfine 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."

Made in USA flag

Nothing But Quality

Our baselayer collections are proudly made in America using carefully selected 100% Superfine 'no-itch' Merino Wool from Australia & New Zealand.  Sure, it's not easy manufacturing in the USA, but for those companies who are willing, it is very possible.

Our packaging, care labels, hang tags, and shipping providers are all manufactured stateside, as well.  

We choose American manufacturing because their hours of operation are the same, which is much more efficient, and their delivery times are much faster.  It's a win-win! 

Why Merino Wool?

The small air chambers in our soft Merino wool perfectly regulate your body's internal temperature.  SNOWSHED® base layers will keep you cool in the off-season warm spells and warm throughout the frigid winter.  Also, Merino wool is a powerful odor fighter. Odor molecules have a very difficult time bonding to wool, so you can literally can wear these layers for several days of athletic activity without any stink.  No Chills, No Stink, just All Day Comfort!


Warm & Breathable - The best of both worlds!

SNOWSHED® makes some the best thermals on the market today - we use only the finest quality Merino wool, our 230 midweight baselayers provide the warmth of many 300gsm+ baselayers, but with the breathability of a lighter layer for 3-Season comfort!




"I've tried countless base layers and you will not find better than Snowshed! Synthetics don't compare (they stretch, break down, rip the hair out of my legs), cotton is pointless, and other wool base layers are itchy or bulky. Snowshed's midweight merino is thin, yet warm enough to keep me comfortable during the sub-freezing winters of Colorado."

Robert (Customer Review)



“The long johns are awesome!  It’s been a very long time since I have not froze to death while wading in the winter.  I love them!"

Ryan (Fly Fishing Ambassador)



"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 (Customer Review)



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

Laura (Customer Review)



“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 (bicycling in the snow) and was not disappointed.”

Zach (Customer Review)
