Rafting trip down the Colorado River thru the Grand Canyon
|Just returned from a winter (Dec/Jan) raft trip down the Colorado River thru the Grand Canyon. Stocked up on Minus 33 gear in preparation for this adventure. Trip was wet and cold as expected, and my experience was awesome. Your gear performed very well. I was particularly impressed w/ my expedition weight base layers – Katmai bottoms and Kobuk top. Wore these every day under my dry suit on the River and stayed comfortable w/out being too warm. Great quality – standing up to daily rugged use for our 19 day trip.
I had mid-weight layers for camp wear and loved these too. Count me as a loyal Minus 33 customer from here on!One suggestion – I really liked the Large/Tall option available for the mid-weight gear. Hope you expand that option to your other lines. I went w/ a XL Kobuk to get the necessary sleeve length, and it was bulky around the chest and shoulders. If that item were ever available in LT, I’d snap it up in a jiffy. Thanks for your contribution to an great experience in an awe inspiring place. “There’s no such thing as bad weather. Only cheap gear and poor planning.”
