Why Merino Wool?
Minus33 Merino Wool regulates the amount of moisture on your skin by absorbing any moisture or sweat on your body. Then, the absorbed moisture evaporates out of the fabric into the atmosphere.
Merino Wool fibers naturally reject any bacteria in moisture or sweat as it is wicked away, so foot fungus and smelly odor will not be a problem while wearing our products.
Insulates When Wet
Wool will absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling wet or clammy. If you do get wet, wool will insulate you better than cotton or polyester materials.
Merino Wool insulates against high temperatures and does not readily catch fire. If it does, it self-extinguishes. When Merino burns, it doesn’t melt and stick to the skin like synthetic fabrics do.
Don’t worry about sunburn on a sunny day summiting a peak. Lightweight layers have a UPF rating of 25. Midweight and Expedition have a UPF rating of 50+.
Merino Wool has a low environmental footprint and naturally returns to the elements. Shear a merino sheep in the morning, and in the afternoon they’re happily nibbling their way towards renewing next season’s clip.
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.
The perfect weight and can be great in the office or on the golf course. Just wish there was a better variety of colors.

the Minus333 polo is a great multipurpose shirt that I use under long-sleeve knits or cotton shirts and it also is great for hiking in warm weather.
Thank you for the great review. We are happy to hear that you find our Minus33 Polo shirt to be a great multi purpose shirt and that you enjoy hiking in the warm weather wearing it . Happy hiking!
It's literally the only shirt I ever wear. Very comfortable, we should probably make it in more colors.
Lawson, thank you for taking the time to leave such a great review. We forwarded your interest in more colors to our product development team, and we hope to see some more too! -Felicia W.
These are extremely flexible shirts, perfect for travel--- on the trail, on the boat, on the links, in the office, you name it. The material is very comfortable and looks a little classier than most polos while being comfortable in a wider range of temperatures. They are very thin---this is probably why only dark colors are available. My first lasted about 6 years.
