Meet Ben

About Ben

I’m an adventure enthusiast. I love getting out and exploring the unknown – there are possible large future expeditions- stay tuned! Doing all of this is a great way to inspire others and make a positive impact on the planet. Along with going on adventures, I’m a big advocate of living a healthy lifestyle so I work on helping others with their fitness.  I love Minus33 because all of its gear and the brand itself are aligned with many of the same values that I find important.

Favorite Minus33 Product: Any of the lightweight garments because from my experiences these can be used in a wide variety of locations!


Cold Weather Layers for Fall and Winter, Midweight and Expedition Wool Base Layers

A Simple Clothing System

The System

The main point of my clothing system is to have a few key clothing items that can be used for a variety of environmental and route conditions.  Being able to mix and match these key clothing items will allow you to be able to carry only what items you need for the location you’ll be hiking in.


Minus 33 Merino wool clothing, Why go light?

Why Go Light?

Over the years, backpacking has evolved on so many levels.

Everything from the type of gear you carry, the food you bring, and the trips you take are becoming more demanding and extreme. Over the past fifteen or so years, backpacking has really seen a new trend: going lighter.
