Your Top 5 Winter Essentials in Australia

13 June 2019

Whether you’re exploring the coast or hitting the mountains, this is the gear you need for a winter spent in Australia.

It might seem like the New Year was just yesterday, but time has marched on and believe it or not, it is officially winter in Australia. As we near the halfway mark to our year temperatures are colder than ever, and those brisk weather fronts don’t look like they’ll be letting up anytime soon.

Swells are pulsing, winds are offshore, snow is beginning to fall… and Australia is getting colder and colder. So what do you need to get you through the next three months, hypothermia free?

We’ve compiled a list of the must-haves, both in water and on land.


1. Anti-Series jacket

Wind, rain, snow or hail, an Anti-Series jacket will have you covered. If you’re out and about in the elements this winter, it’s a must-have

2. An everyday jacket

When the temperatures drop but your style standards don’t, you’ve got to have that go-to jacket. From the office, to dinner to drinks, it’ll keep you warm and ready for anything.

3. A long sleeve button-up

Highly underrated, the long sleeve tee is an absolute must-have for the colder months. It’s the item you buy in bulk, it’s the shirt that will never let you down. Any location, any occasion.

4. Flashbomb Wetsuit

If you’re a surfer in Australia and you don’t live north of Sydney, it’s getting to the time of year when your fingers are toes go numb after a 15-minute session. But that’s we created the Flashbomb – the ultimate cold water wetsuit, that dries faster than any other suit on the market.

And if you’re one of those lucky ones in Australia’s warmer water zones, you’ll still need winter rubber – we recommend snagging a Flashbomb 3/2.

5. A wetsuit change towel

There’s nothing worse than feeling the harsh chill of a winter wind as you peel your wetsuit off in the car park, fingers shivering and hair dripping icicles. Nobody wants to be that guy (or girl). And that’s why a wetsuit change towel is a must-have for winter.

Something to keep the warmth in

Everyone knows that the place to maintain body warmth is your head. Keep the noggin warm, keep the body warm. And hey, if it ain’t for function, you’ll at least be needing it for fashion.

Something for your toes

The second place to maintain body warmth? Your feet, of course! Get a pair of long socks, stay warm (and comfortable) all day and night.
