Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Baselayer woolies

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I have been getting more merino baselayers as I need warmer legs I struggle in the afternoons in december elevation or on longer tree powder days in the lower back area too.
Cold seems to creep up on you then gets nasty very quick in the arvo with later headcolds or coughs that never leave..
Chairs are part of this with myself my temp just tanks as you are caught in glacier wind often sitting on ice and steel wishing the bloody chair would arrive faster .
Do others get this around -20 and colder?

I like merino it works really well overall.... I don,t know enough about other synthetics from Patagonia and arcteryx etc

Having just got this sales mail today it may suit someone going in dec/jan and needing warmer icebreaker 260 weight leggings with good fit and the wee wee relief cut etc
I just bought another brand std 190 weight type Sad these Icebreaker 260 are probably better (and another tenner ) if heading out early up high.

They are online in clearance at £39 with a further 10% off codeG3AR till sunday... its what they are pushing.

I've various icebreaker stuff as it's supposed to be the best of the natural stuff and it's inevitably all you can buy some places I ride. It doesn't work for me at all though, its sort of soft in the shops and all, but when it's damp and cold it seems a lot like I'd expect damp and cold wool to be. So I guess it's a matter of what you like, and the sheep are safe from me.

I ride a lot in the cold and use the Patagonia stuff when I'm paying/ choosing. I like the compression stuff too. So I'm a fan of synthetic stuff I can use and abuse and which isn't hairy.

I'm a sucker for 'the next big thing' but bamboo baselayers work well for me and are much more comfortable than merino.

I won a bamboo base layer in the SnowHeads Prize Draw the other year. Being a giving sort of guy I got a lady-one for best belove'd and she swears by it. Kept her warm and toasty on her night marathon walk as well as on the mountains.

For it to be much more comfortable than merino, I'd be expecting it to come with a nubile virgin to apply body lotion before helping me put it on... wink

there's merino and merino. Some can be a bit scratchy and hairy. Tirol 164, you catch a cold from a virus, not a chilly chairlift. wink But the latter might lower your resistance.

How do you do a poo in a onesie? Do they have openings like those trousers that little Chinese kids wear?
