Minus33 Merino Wool Summer Gear Guide

Summer Gear Guide

With Summer upon us and temperatures on the rise, there comes a need for some serious warm weather gear.  From shorts, tanks, and short sleeve t-shirts during the day, and long sleeves and lighter outer layers at night, being prepared with the right clothing makes a big difference.  Whether you're hiking, camping, boating, fishing or just hanging out in the sun, Merino wool can help keep you protected and temperature regulated no matter the activity.

Upper Body

Micro weight comfort.  With warmer temperatures, humidity and stronger sunlight, you want to make sure you're getting the most from your base layers. Perfect for solo layers or in a layering system, Merino wool offers the most benefits - moisture-wicking, odor-resistance, and UV protection, to name a few.

Our Micro weight Sun Hoodies are perfect for a variety of conditions! Featuring our Woolverino - nylon-core spun Merino wool technology, these are micro weight, breathable, and super soft.  It's light enough to keep you cool when it's hot and warm when it's cool. They do a great job protecting you from the sun on an afternoon of paddling, and warming you up when the sun sets and the temperatures drop. 

Our Micro weight collection also features a Women's Racerback Tank and a Men's Sleeveless Shirt, for when you want a little more sun exposure.

For cooler days and when you need a little more coverage, try our Micro weight  Women's V-Neck T-shirt or the Men's Micro weight T-shirt as the perfect solo top.

It's shorts season.  During the Summer, a pair of shorts is the obvious choice, but your base layer matters too. For those cooler days or nights, our Women's Woolverino Midweight Leggings or Men's Woolverino Midweight Flyless Running Tights are the perfect  base layer for shorts lovers.

Summer hiking means the weather is warm, but that doesn't mean you stop packing the essential gear in case the temps drop or you get stuck in a rain storm. According to NH Fish & Game's list of gear to bring with you no matter when you decide to hit the trails, you should always carry a hat, extra socks, gloves or mittens & a neck gaiter. 

On the water or fishing? Protect your face from the sun with our Micro Weight MulticlavaAvailable in 5 different colors, this piece can be worn as a hat, headband, neck gaiter, or balaclava. Made from our micro weight Merino wool, this multi-gaiter is light and breathable while still keeping you protected from insects and harmful UV rays.

Keep the sweat away.  For hotter days or strenuous exercise when you want to keep the sweat away, try the micro weight Tie Headband. It is designed to absorb sweat during outdoor activities or keep your hair away from your face. The thin and stretchy fabric ensures a secure and comfortable fit, preventing the headband from slipping or causing any discomfort.

Minus33 Merino Wool Blankets

Prepare for cool nights. Our White Mountain Woolen Blankets are the ideal addition to your camping gear, or your outdoor hangout spaces. With two sizes and a variety of colors, these are ideal as additional cushioning on your tent floor, as a picnic blanket, or as a throw blanket at night when the temperatures drop.
