Sorry about the long leave of absence again, I've been reviewing lots of ski and apres wear recently - so lots to look forward to.
Last week I was lucky enough to receive a thermal polo neck from S'No Queen. The idea behind S'No Queen thermals is that while eating on the mountain or drinking during apres ski you really don't want to be seen sitting in something that resembles dull, granny underwear (what your average thermals look like). S'No Queen offers something different, something glamorous.
I was really surprised with the quality of this base layer. I do worry that sometimes style comes before practicality with similar products but the fabric feels incredible. The base layer is made of 82% Model, 14% silk, and 4% Elastane Lycra. Perfect for skiing. I was also worried that the embellishment would effect the comfortableness of the top, but it felt great.
I skied for two days in this thermal top and I absolutely loved it. I'm not the biggest fan of polo necks as I sometimes feel a bit constricted in them while skiing but if you feel the same S'No Queen has a lot of other shapes and styles on offer. This product is on the expensive side but I feel you get two great products in one - performance ski wear and a stylish top. I would definitely recommend S'No Queen base layers if you love apres ski and dining at mountain restaurants.
