From the frustration of constantly finding poor quality or kooky designs, BLAK Headwear was born. We wanted to create high-quality headwear and apparel that would hold up to the harsh conditions of mountain life without compromising on design. While spending a few months living in a small room above a karaoke bar on the outskirts of Hakuba, snowboarding by day and drinking Japanese whiskey by night, in 2014 our first range came to life.
We would like to personally thank each and everyone of you that has purchased from us and all the crew out there that has helped us along the way to to get BLAK to where it is today. We are super excited to have our Winter Range live and we hope you all love it as much as we loved producing it.
The Japan powder factory is running at full capacity, it's cold deep and epic in Japan at the moment, that being said to maximise your shred time on the mountain during your holiday there are a few little items that are a must have in everyone's shred kit!
Balaclava - Our Ninja Mask is the perfect balaclava for Japan, tested in the Hakuba Valley by the crew before we launched way back in 2014 our Ninja Mask will keep that blower Japanese pow off your face whilst scoring those Japanese pow slashes and be dry by the top of your next chairlift ride to do it all again.
Necksock - Running Hot? Can't deal with the double layered head protection, one of our Necksocks could be the perfect option for you, unless you're sporting a mean beard, don't leave the face protection out of the kit that Pow is cold!
