minus 33 merino wool clothing, Hunting Life Test the fingerless glove liner. wearing fingerless gloves is better for hunting when it comes time to pull the trigger.

Hunting Life Tests the Minus33 Fingerless Glove Liner and Mock Turtleneck!

Hunting Life

Having hunted in cold weather and expecting to do so again this year, I know the importance of warm hands. Fingers just don’t work as well when they cold. What I’ve done in the past is kept my hands in my gloves while stalking and then taking them off when I am ready to shoot. But what I really wanted was fingerless gloves. That way, I could keep my gloves on and my hands warm but have my fingertips exposed for a safer and more accurate grip on my rifle.

Minus 33 Merino wool clothing, October sailing on the Hudson river

October Sailing on the Hudson River

The October winds are here, and they bring with them swelling white caps and brisk gusts on the Hudson River. The sailboats that traverse these waters pitch and yaw in the sweeping currents. We also have to deal with the massive wakes of ferries, tankers, and cruise ships. The winds that bite are volatile and shift often. And then there are all the little speed boats that love to cross your bow as close as they possibly can. Suffice it to say, if you are sailing on the Hudson, you will get wet.

A Weekend On Rainy

Every time you head to the upper most point of Minnesota, you never really know what to expect. Lake of the Woods and Rainy Lake both cover a large majority of the border between Minnesota and Canada, and the weather is unpredictable at times. However, Rainy Lake holds the fish that every angler in Minnesota dreams of, BIG.

The Power of Spring

Canadian weather can be unpredictable in the spring. What draw me to this wonderful rocking place are the cold water walleyes that many people seek during the early spring of fishing season. This is the first time I discovered how wonderful Minus33 actually is.

The Wasatch was Blessed with Heavy Snowfall

Well,

Just when I thought it was all over and gave up all hope, the Wasatch was blessed with heavy snowfall (2 to 3 feet in areas) of our usual preference…high density, low moisture fluffy greatness. Although this season was pretty terrible for me for many reasons, just one good day outdoors with friends is enough to remind me how much magic surrounds me every day. On the morning of April 16th, my backyard was coated in white and surrounded by misty clouds, singing in the sunlight. READ MORE

Good Morning America / Yahoo! Merino Wool Review

GMA

Wool workout wear warms you up, cools you down.

“While synthetics are passive, Merino wool is active, reacting to changes in body temperature to keep you warm when you’re cold, but releasing heat and moisture when you’re hot,” he said, noting that wool performs equally well during indoor and outdoor workouts. “The best part is that wool naturally reduces chafing, odor and dries incredibly fast.”

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.
