50 Campfires Reviews the Minus33 Kodiak Expedition Hoody

50-Campfires-Logo

50 Campfires reviewed the ultra warm and ultra plush Minus33 Kodiak Expedition Full Zip Hoody.

The first thing that I noticed when taking the hoodie out of the package was the weight and attention to details. Merino wool is a hefty material to begin with, and this garment definitely weighs more than any other in my new wardrobe.

Minus 33 Merino wool clothing, a Caribbean adventure!

A Caribbean Adventure!

A lot of people caveat wool as a winter time fabric.

 
It has connotations of hounds-tooth sweaters at Christmas parties, woolen snowflake beanie caps in ski lodges, and itchy pilled scarves worn on our first toboggan runs as children. But when it comes to wool and summer, the two worlds never seem to cross.

Wool Saved My Life: Part II

READ PART I HERE

 

So here I am, standing with one boot on, on an abandoned dock with no one around for miles.

 

I am out of the water but I am not out of the woods. I ran up to house to which the dock belonged and did my best to kick down the glass door on their back porch with my ski boot. They must have had some beastly installation because my kicks did not even make a dent. I looked around and saw some distance away another cottage, and made my way.

Wool Saved My Life: Part I

It was a morning like any other.

 

Just your typical Upstate New York polar vortex bringing the air temperature somewhere well below zero. It was however, a gorgeous day with blue skies and green pines and there was fresh snow on the ground. I decided to go for a jaunt on cross country skis through our family’s backwoods out to the lake for some crisp air and exercise. Because it was so cold, I layered up. I put on some Wool Knee Socks with long underwear and topped with a wool sweater, jacket and cap to keep me cozy as I began to traverse the woodland trail.

Eastern Slopes Reviews the Best Inexpensive Lightweight Long Underwear

ESLogo-white

Eastern Slopes reviewed several inexpensive different base layers and determined merino wool is top notch.

When the weather turns nasty, when we’re going on a multi-day winter backpacking trip, or when we’re worried that we might be in dangerous situations, we turn to wool. Why? Because we still haven’t found anything that’s better at moving moisture away from our bodies and keeping it there.READ MORE

Minus 33 Merino wool clothing, summer mountains

When You’re Up High in the Back-country

When you’re high in the back-country of elk country, you need clothing that will help keep you cool, dry and warm all at the same time. I need something that is going to keep me going long after the rest of me has all but quit. Quality clothing helps keep the hunter moving and feeling fresh. Minus33 is some of the best around when it comes to this. The ability to wick sweat, dry in minutes and also to keep you warm when the temperatures decides to drop is crucial. It’s the ultimate clothing brand for the serious hunter. The back-country is an unforgiving place, miles from roads and even further from cell phone service. Your clothing is your most vital part of your gear. It keeps you from being exposed to the harsh elements of fall in the mountains.READ MORE
