+Hot Shot™ Merino
4-way stretch winter luxury uniquely combines superfine merino against your skin with a tightly knitted, hardwearing nylon outer and lycra to stretch and move with your body. Warm as pie.
  • Composition: 28% merino; 44% nylon; 28% lycra.

+WindFoil™
WindFoil™ combines the insulative benefits of a polyester micro-fleece liner with a smooth, water resistant, softshell exterior. A totally windproof, yet highly breathable membrane is sandwiched between the inner and outer fabrics providing effective protection in cold, dry conditions.
  • Composition: 100% polyester with PU membrane.
  • 100% windproof.
  • Water repellent finish on face fabric.
  • Breathability: 4000gm per sq.m per 24hr.

+Washing

  • All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm 40ºC machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach, 'oxygen whitener' or fabric softener.
    • The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation.
    • Bleach rots natural fibres like merino, strips the dye, attacks laminates of waterproof fabrics and can also cause skin irritation.
    • Sodium Percarbonate (the main ingredient in oxygen whitener) can make colours run.
    • Fabric softener and stuff containing it like wool wash destroys the water repellent finish on waterproof and water resistant fabrics, and can cause colours to run.
  • As a rule of thumb, a product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like Ecostore, Earthwise or Aware.
  • Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.
  • Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast so hanging on the line or drooping over the bedpost is generally the best option. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you do take your threads for a spin, set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot. A lap in the dryer is recommended for your rain jacket, after it has dried on the line, as it helps recharge its water repellant finish.

  • Wash colours separately.

+ Shipping
  • Items are generally packed and sent the same day your order is received.
  • Costs $9 by overnight courier within New Zealand.
  • NZ$12 by tracked airmail to Australia.

      Oops meant to order the Jolly Roger!

      My beanie was showing signs of wear after a number of years so I ordered another. It arrived promptly, very well made as always but way too warm for a Sydney summer or autumn. Oops I ordered the Baked Beanie instead of the Jolly Roger! Just placed a new order for the Jolly Roger and will happily wear the Baked Beanie for about one month in the depths of Sydney winter - should see me out!

      Excellent headwear

      I get brainfreeze when cycling, it's really weird. This baked beanie keeps my head toasty and prevents that. Excellent quality and fit!

      Baked Beanie - warmth for your noggin

      This is the second Baked Beanie I've owned: The first one was made of a more fleecy material and I much prefer this one (that said, I loved the first one I had). It covers the head and ears nicely, keeping everything toasty when I'm commuting to work in the crisp Christchurch mornings. There's not much more to say, really: A great addition to your winter arsenal to keep your head warm during those chilly commutes.

      New cool weather baked beanie

      I've purchased one each of the older model baked beanie, the warm and cold weather I found they were cut a little 'short' and rode up over the ears with a helmet on. This new model of the cool weather beanie is cut much deeper over the ears and the neck. For me, it fits much better. Still same great quality.
