Minnesota Bucks and Minus33 Merinoholics Adventures Kyle

Minnesota Bucks and Minus33


The chilly night air consumed me as I prepped for opening morning, for the first time in 15 years there would be snow on the ground for Opening day of Minnesota Deer season. It is always an exciting time of year. Our traditional family cabin was packed with 6 of us. The anticipations made it hard to sleep. Hanging my gear the night before, I made sure I had all the appropriate Minus33 gear on hand. Starting with my inner layer of Lightweight next to skin, such as the Saratoga bottom and Ticonderoga top. These are followed by the Explorer Midweight Crew and the Adirondack Midweight Vest. Finally, the Thermerino jacket before my outer shell. Combined with the Expedition Wool Balaclava which keep me comfortable during the long days sit. These products keep me in the stand longer and warmer, so I can pursue such a great tradition in the Northwoods.

A Simple Clothing System

The System

The main point of my clothing system is to have a few key clothing items that can be used for a variety of environmental and route conditions.  Being able to mix and match these key clothing items will allow you to be able to carry only what items you need for the location you’ll be hiking in.


Minus 33 Merino wool clothing, "I wore a pair of your medium weight wool pants almost every day when I did the John Muir trail a couple weeks ago. I did the hike by myself in 16 days and had rain and hail, hot days and cold nights and couldn't be happier with the performance of your gear." -- Thanks @ljammp for sharing these photos with us! -- Have adventure photos to share?
