Merinoholics: Meet Martin

About Martin

Martin is a longtime Minus33 customer who enjoys hiking, kayaking, camping, logging, backpacking, mountain climbing, and bouldering. He spends at least a day a week in the great outdoors of Alaska, summer or winter.

 

“It is pretty cold most of the year here in Alaska, which means that reliable clothing that can keep you warm no matter what the weather throws at you is very important, if not life saving at times.”
