XTM jacket giveaway: his/hers – you pick!
It’s a real pleasure to be able to giveaway an XTM jacket this week as well as offer up two pairs of gloves in The Snow Gauge’s bonus Instagram promotion.
The goods are great (read on for a little more detail) but the fact it’s direct from an Aussie company should make you feel warm and fuzzier still.
And not just any Australian company but one that has a significant track record in helping our athletes, the environment and those less fortunate than most of us who get to enjoy skiing and snowboarding.
Ok, the goods I hear you ask.
Your choice of either the Onyx jacket for men or the Viva for women. These jackets have the feel of a highly technical shell and the performance of an insulated ski jacket. With awesome heat to weight ratio these babies are super lightweight and boast amazing moisture control.
As a little bonus this week XTM have offered up a pair of Sochi gloves and Crema mitts and we’ll be running that competition on The Snow Gauge Instagram page.
So what of XTM? Formed by Winter Olympian Peter Forras back in 1999 XTM has grown to become Australia’s leading snow wear brand that’s the official choice of the Australian, New Zealand and Danish Winter Olympic teams. Based in Torquay, all goods are designed at “the beach shack” in the coastal Victorian town.
But XTM is so much more than that. The company makes a real point of using Australian Merino wool where possible in its baselayers, socks, accessories and gloves. It has carbon neutral certification – a must in an industry that is so climate dependent. And there’s a real sense of giving back – not only to professional and up and coming athletes but those not so well off. You only need to check out XTM’s ‘Heat the Homeless’ campaign that gets old and unwanted ski jackets to people sleeping rough on the streets for proof of that.
Check out XTM’s full range and feel good about doing some business with a company that’s doing its bit in the community.
