Anyone venturing out in the cold will greet our Expedition clothing with a warm welcome as either a base, mid or outer layer. When you need to keep the ever-present cold from seeping in, our Expedition items will be your best friend.
Why Merino Wool?
MACHINE WASH AND DRY
Total Easy Care (TEC) Merino apparel is designed for today's busy lifestyle. Total Easy Care Merino garments are all machine-washable, and are suitable for tumble drying.
Even after frequent laundering they retain an 'as new' appearance. They won't shrink, lose their shape, fade or color-bleed. They remain soft and comfortable for the life of the garment.
I especially like it to be thicker than other sweatshirts made of wool, as winter in Utah is long and cold. Yet to see if it holds up its shape and form from wear and wash - kinda think mixing with some nylon would make it tougher in this regard.
Proper heavyweight. Quite warm. Fair price. Will purchase again.
Very high quality. Can be worn alone or as insulting layer.
Thank you for leaving us a great review! We are happy that you're satisfied with the quality of your Minus33 Expedition Yukon Men's Crew!
I purchased this top about 18 months ago as a mid layer while backpack hunting. I have found it to be a superior base layer, mid layer and outer layer to any of my other wool or synthetic pieces. I now wear a lightweight wool base layer and this as my mid layer instead of the Polartech fleece half zip that I had been wearing. As a mid layer, I immediately realized how much better temperature regulation and moisture management this shirt provides instead of the fleece. During high exertion I sweat less and when I do sweat, it dried more quickly. I just feels less stuff than any fleece. When I do sweat, the shirt stinks less than any other synthetic as a bonus. I have now completely abandoned fleece in any part of my layering system. On a recent trip to Central Asia, I used this shirt as a base layer, a mid layer and an outer layer. I was impressed with the durable nature of this shirt and how little it itches compared to other wool brands I've used.
If I could have anything I wish for, I would have a crew neck or mock neck shirt made of this material with a 1/4 zip and some sort of kangaroo pocket. The kangaroo pocket would have to have some kind of lightweight material against the body to prevent the double layer of this wool from becoming too hot. Until then, I'll use this shirt outside any time the temperature is below 60F.
Thanks for making a great product. I can say it is absolutely worth the expense!!
Thank you for giving us your detailed feedback on your Minus33 Yukon Men's Expedition Crew. As a personal favorite of mine as well, it's great to hear that you enjoy the quality, performance and versatility that the Yukon offers.
I have also forwarded your suggestion for a crew neck or mock neck shirt made of our expedition fabric, with a 1/4 zip and a version of a kangaroo pocket, over to our product development team to be considered for the future.
Thank you again for taking the time to leave us such a great review.
