My favourite active (or ACTION) brand is by far the Wanaka based Merino label, Mons Royale. While you might sigh and say “it’s summer and 27 C outside! No place for wool!” then think again. Mons have just launched online stores (plural) that service those of you Northern Hemi folk in the snow, and a fun, bright summer range of lightweight singlets and tops for us Down Under. Check it out.
