Originally from Blenheim, New Zealand, Pete Oswald was practically born on the slopes falling in love with skiing at the young age of 5. After finishing high school Pete ventured to the Northern Hemisphere in search of more powder, more snow and more adventure. He’s been skiing and exploring the world ever since. When he’s not on the mountain, he spends most of his time biking, running and traveling. He’s featured here wearing the Tech Lite Short Sleeve Red Stag t-shirt featured in our new Corespun collection.
Pete, a longtime Icebreaker fan and brand ambassador is no stranger to the wonders of merino. “I spend my year cruising around the globe skiing and trotting from one adventure to the next. I don’t like to have too much “stuff” and prefer to invest in a few pieces of clothing that last and are versatile. That is why I wear Icebreaker.”
Corespun, a fiber designed to be the ultimate breakthrough in strength technology, needed to be put to the test. Luckily, we knew the perfect candidate. Oswald needs a shirt that can keep up with his adventure lifestyle, whether hitting the slopes or traveling the world. “I love my new Corespun t shirt. I can use it for sweaty activities like running, biking and then roll into a bar and still look (and smell) fresh. What’s more, it’s tough! I can treat it rough, get it wet, rip it off quickly, crash off my bike, or even have a huge night out.” Corespun features a nylon core wrapped in luxurious merino fiber offering the comfort of merino next-to-skin, but more stretch and strength than ever before.
When asked whether or not Oswald noticed a difference between his previous tech t’s and the updated pieces featuring Corespun, Oswald responded, “I cannot feel any difference in the feel or weight of the Core Spun Tee, it is still the same super light airy Merino Icebreaker that I’m used to – but just built to last longer, so all I need is just the one!”
