    I'll probably have a look that afternoon, long after the crowds are gone. The local always has heaps of stuff left, I have no time for silly queues.

    Track pants are super warm and not scratchy.
    The hoodie is almost identical to the ice breaker one for about 25% the price

    I do not need anything, I do not need anything, etc, etc. No, really, I have enough outdoor gear to last me a lifetime after buying some Mountain Design gear at their closing down sale.

    I, for one am very excited about the Aldi snow sale. I want to get a couple of sets of the merino thermals, as I got the synthetic ones last year and I find that they get rather smelly after a day of skiing. I also want to get some merino socks. Also, the kids are going to need new pairs of snow boots.

    Can anyone comment on what the Aldi gear (jacket/pants) is like? I've always just hired by snow gear and while I've never had a problem with the quality of it I'm planning on going to Japan next year so thought now might be the time to get some of my own gear.

    Normally I just spend 5-7 days a year at Perisher and if anything, not having to include a jacket/pants in my luggage flying down from Brisbane may even be more convenient.

    Merino tee shirts . So much better than thermals.

    I was really happy with the quality. If anything, I was a tad warm in NZ. I usually had the pit zips open for the day by about 10:30am. Neither of my children complained about being cold, either. My only issue is that every second person on the snow is wearing the same gear, so spotting other members of your party gets tricky. That may not be as big of an issue in Japan though.

    I have several compressable packing bags that I put all the snow gear into so it doesn’t take up as much room in our luggage. They are the type that have a lock seal at the top and a one way valve at the bottom. I just pack, seal and roll to get out the excess air. Packing bags are also handy for the return trip as you can pack dirty stuff separately to clean stuff.

    Yeah, I’ve wondered about that. I really need leggings as well though. I need to have something between my skin and the lining of my ski pants.

    Yeah. Not a huge fan of wool myself, had a try, gave them to somebody else. I literally used to wear Aldi ski thermals to bed (I am skin and bones). All my Aldi thermals at Buller, gonna buy some more thermals from the scraps/returns left. So cosy.

    I'm kiwi.
    Am wool . At heart.
    I prefer wool on my top half where ever possible.
    I had a icebreaker tee.
    Cost 120 clams. Navy blue. Medium .
    Lasted years. But it was feral. Pilled and balled. It died a few years back.
    Replaced with a large merino tee
    25 clams from Aldi. Mint.

    fair, I just don't like wool though. Thermals aren't a bad deal. I don't care about pilling though with my (limited) wool selection.
    Like the things runners wear in the mornings?

    Sometimes it's great quality and other times it reflects the price. I still have some Aldi stuff from many years ago, whilst others get a few outings and then get filed (I generally ski between 30 and 60 days each year). Last year for example, the ski pants (purchased 2016) were sweaty which is bad in cold weather so poor breathability, nor did not repel water as they should have. I first lifts after a decent dump last year when thick ice was not cleaned off the chairs on interceptor (Perisher) and by the time I got to the top my legs were screaming in pain. My body heat melted the ice and the water soaked into the pants. Wet legs on ice at minus 5 - not good. The pants were still wet by lunchtime, so home I went and filed those pants. Aldi gear is still sensational value if you don't ski for long.

    Try to get 3/4 length ones so you don’t have excess length to deal with.
