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

Wool Cycling Recommends Minus33 Boxer Brief

Wool Cycling reviewed the Minus33 Men’s Boxer Brief.

The Minus33 Men’s 100% Wool Lightweight Boxer Brief makes an excellent base layer as Merino wool absorbs moisture therefore reduces the amount of sweat left on the body. This therefore reduces the amount of odor produced from the body while cycling.

Gear Review From Lightning Layne

Base Layer Test      

Rating — Great Model – Superfine Merino Wool  Zip T Neck- Style 744-size medium

Initial fit and feel – When I first put on the T neck I felt a little itching on my back but this went away either with some use or the first washing of the garment. I also felt the warming nature of the fabric. I noted that the fit of the T neck seemed to be true all over i.e. the arms were a perfect length not too long or too short as was the trunk and the T neck, plus the material was very soft to the touch!
