Kitsbow Kincaid Merino Technical Sweater & Ziler Merino Long Sleeve

The Ziler Merino Long Sleeve is made of 55% merino and 45% synthetic.

The Kitsbow Kincaid is a crewneck sweater made from a nylon-faced merino knit that Kitsbow says is durable on the outside, yet soft and odor-wicking on the inside. It has shoulder and elbow reinforcements for water and abrasion resistance and a contoured hem for extra coverage. It is sewn in Old Fort, North Carolina, and costs US$179.

The Kitsbow Ziler is a lightweight, long-sleeve t-shirt made with a 55% merino, 45% synthetic merino wool blend that Kitsbow says wicks away moisture and dries faster than pure merino.

The handles have a diameter of 32.25 mm and an overall length of 143 mm. They are available in three colors and cost US$25.

SealSkinz Insulated Waterproof Melt Control Gloves

SealSkinz says the new gloves feature a four-layer construction for warmth, durability and waterproofing.

SealSkinz has a new line of cold weather waterproof gloves. The gloves are made with a four-layer construction for warmth, durability and waterproofing. SealSkinz says their Fusion Control technology bonds the liner and outer shell to a unique hydrophilic membrane, creating a 100% waterproof fabric that actually breathes. This also eliminates movement between layers and allows the glove to fit much closer to the skin for greater dexterity.

They will be priced from $99.99 to US$149.99 and will be available here.
