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.
I've been a big fan of Minus33. I own a few products and still use them after many years.
We are happy to hear you like our 100% Merino Wool Saratoga Men's Bottom - Lightweight, and that you are a big fan of Minus33 products.
Thank you for the great review!
I absolutely love every minus33 Merino wool product I've ever purchased. So very soft and warm and last for years! A little expensive, but worth it to me because I work outside regardless of weather. Also of a much higher quality AND LESS EXPENSIVE than a certain other popular US brand.
Happy to hear that you love our products.
Thank you for the great review!
Glad I invested in these. I will be getting a midweight set to go with them in the near future. Fit snug, but not too tight. Only complaint is length is just a little short for me, could be a tiny bit longer.
I bought these to give to my son for Christmas so I can’t say how he will like them but……I have loved every other item I have ordered, and I have order quite a bit. The material is soft and very comfortable.
Thank you for being such a great customer. We are happy that you and your son like the products you already have. Be sure to let us know when he has the chance to wear the 100% Merino Wool Saratoga Men's Bottom - Lightweight.
Since I started to wear Minus33 Saratoga tops and bottoms they have become my 2nd skin. I has always cold when I wore cotton thermo, I realize now that I was wet with sweat = cold. I now layer wool and am amazed at how warm I stay, with lighter and less bulky clothes.
Kerry & Joy,
We are glad to hear that you are now staying Warm and dry while wearing Your Minus33 tops and bottoms. Thank you for the wonderful review!
