Welcome to the first official blog post from Oyuki Apparel. Enjoy!

About Oyuki

Oyuki Apparel's products are designed and tested in Niseko, Japan, one of the coldest and snowiest places on the globe. Thanks to a unique combination of innovative design, functional materials and our commitment to providing quality and comfort, our specialised deep powder apparel can keep you outside even in the toughest conditions.

Our designers are riders themselves who live in Niseko during the northern hemisphere winter, working closely with our ambassadors who are all passionate skiers, snowboarders and outdoor addicts. You don’t need to be a pro to ride for Oyuki, you just need to love the mountain life. Our ambassadors motivate us to continually update and refine our products to make sure they are perfectly suited to any conditions Mother Nature may throw at them.

At Oyuki we are also inspired by key elements of Japanese design. We like to keep the outside simple and clean, while the technical aspects of our apparel work hard under the surface, making sure you’re warm, comfortable and on the mountain longer.

Product Spotlight

Gloves

Oyuki Chika Glove

Tested amid Niseko’s extreme snowy conditions the Oyuki glove range is designed to keep your fingers warm even when it’s well below freezing. Our men’s and women’s gloves are made tough, breathable and waterproof using quality fabrics including goatskin leather and 3M Thinsulate™ Insulation.

Mitts

Oyuki Ronin Mitt Grey

Those who really feel the cold may wish to step it up with something from our mitts range. Housing your fingers together lets them share the warmth provided by 3M Thinsulate Insulation.  Supple goatskin leather means our mitts are super pliable so you can still grab your poles, boot buckles or bindings without feeling restricted.

Base Layers

Oyuki Base Layer Mens

Oyuki's Base Layers are made from 100% premium quality Australian merino wool and have been awarded Woolmark's seal of approval. Merino wool offers efficient temperature regulation, excellent moisture management and effective odour control. 100% of Australian merino sheep agree that this product will keep you warmer, more comfortable and on the mountain longer.

Chatting with Oyuki Ambassador Snowy McMahon

1. Obviously Niseko is one of your favourite places to ride, can you tell us a bit about why?

A combination of the snow, the terrain and the people. It goes without saying that we get some of the best, most consistent pow up north and while you often hear that it's 'too flat' I think that comes mostly from people who haven't got out and explored the area.

2. What is it that you enjoy the most about riding in the backcountry?

Freshies for days. The feeling of strapping in after walking for hours to get to your line. Screaming and laughing through every turn. The beauty and serenity of nature. Reading the signs your environment is giving you and making team decisions that get you and your party home safe for a beer at the end of the day.

3. What do you like to do when you're not snowboarding?

Think about snowboarding. Chill out. Hang with friends. Read. Educate the next generation.

4. What Oyuki products can’t you live without?

The Proclava
It's super warm, comfortable and breathable. You don't get too hot and sweaty hiking in it.

Base Layers

Same reason. Don't tell anyone but I pretty much slept and rode in them every day this season.

The Sencho Mitt

Mine copped a thrashing this season and are still going strong. Durable, warm and they stay dry all day.
