I had a plan to hike Mt Willey on 01/09/2017. I wanted to hit the Tom/Field/Willey loop to bag all three 4000’ers but my hiking partner cancelled and I didn’t want to make that road trek back to the vehicle or be stuck hitching.
I had been waiting to get my grubby little hands on the new Minus33 Thermerino Jacket and finally pulled the trigger on it. This was to be its maiden voyage. I’ll admit, I was apprehensive of taken an unknown/unproven (to me) product into Crawford Notch when it was -10* out. I own a heavier down jacket that I had been taking into the woods with me but was too excited for this jacket to leave it behind. I opted to throw an extra, “heavy” top in my pack just in case.

Minus33 Product Story
Isolation [ahy-suh-ley-shuh n]
When trekking your way to the summit of this mountain you may find yourself in temporary isolation in its pristine forests. Like its name implies, Mount Isolation stands alone at the southern end of White Mountain Presidential Range. Epic and alone, it is on the list of New Hampshire’s 48 4,000 foot or higher mountains and often the last peak to be climbed.
I’ve been really lucky to have three healthy boys that love enjoying the outdoors as much as I do . Some are more motivated than others but in this day and electronic age I’m glad they can unplug, get off the couch and see one of the most beautiful parts of our country, New Hampshire.
EightyMPHMom reviewed the Men’s Midweight 1/4 zip and Spur Visor Beanie and as they say…..kid tested, mom approved. EightyMPHMom noted, “First up, the Isolation Men’s Midweight 1/4 zip in charcoal grey for Johnny. Remember, Johnny’s a picky teenager, so this could go either way. As it turns out, he loves this piece. It’s something he’s always reaching to wear and I’ll probably buy a couple more because he likes it so much.” Click here to read the full review!
