Stratus is the new merino brand on the block. Designed and worn by our team of skiers and snowboarders at BaseNZ. Made with 100% New Zealand Merino wool and made in New Zealand. Love local, buy local.
The Stratus Merino balaclava is your ticket to a warm and dry face on even the snowiest days. Merino doesn't get cold when wet so it's great on those ride-or-die days when it's too good to go inside even though you know that hot chocolate is calling your name.
Not too tight and not too baggy, this one is just right.
100% NZ Merino
Lovely and soft - no scratchy wool here

When will I receive my Order? - Depending on what it is and how large your order is plays a big part on how long it will take.
Once we receive your order we will get it out to you as soon as possible. Some times the stock can be in our Queenstown store and needs to be brought over to Wanaka to ship out. Small items, once sent are on overnight NZ Post so should be 1-2 business days.
Larger items such as bags, skis, snowboards are sent with PBT and run on a 4-5 business days south island and 7-9 Days North Island. Sometimes these can take up to three weeks to the North Island so please allow time to get to you. These are also subject to delays due to staff shortages / Christmas madness etc. along the chain.
Please keep in mind that if you have a rural address this can add an extra day or two also.
In general, we ship our orders with CourierPost, which we run on a 1-2 day service with pickup at 3pm each day.
Larger items, such as luggage, skis and snowboards, ship on an earlier service with PBT couriers. This is a fully traceable service. (Just to note: if it is a rural delivery, it can take a few more days depending on your local service.)
