Neil McNair
Founder of McNair Shirts


“We know how good the product is, we just need to get it out there.”

Neil wants you to stop bringing plastic into the mountains. Living and working in the mountains for the last 18 years has meant that he's worn just about every conceivable 'technical' fabric in the wildest weather. Cocooning himself in fabrics designed to create a barrier against the elements simply doesn't work in the long-term. McNair's clever, enhanced Merino keeps you comfortable and still in touch with the elements. Plus it's natural, sustainable and effective. It's the non-plastic jacket.

Neil has been a British Snowboard Trainer for over 12 years and during this time he has held the elected position BASI Snowboard Director for 2 full terms. McNair shirts is a passion that co-exists with his Snowboarding. He was born and raised during his informative years in Scotland, home is now the French Alps with his daughter.
