Ponte de Roma is the name of a double knitting technique that consists of two layers of fabric knitted together. Ponte fabric is tightly knitted, making it very durable. It's stretchy, soft, doesn't wrinkle, and has a naturally flattering drape, which lets these mid-layers crossover perfectly from the outdoors to the office, and everything in between.
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 just received mine in black. The fit is near perfect (XL for 6' 3", 200#). Nice soft fabric and pickets. Only complaint is the ugly white logo lettering in the tape inside the neck. Unless worn fully zipped, it shows and looks cheap. I didn't look at the photos close enough. Please consider deleting or using more subtle gray color.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback on your Minus33 Wilderness Expedition Full Zip. We are happy to hear that you are satisfied with the fit and quality of the garment. I will pass along your feedback to our product development team to see what we can do about the white logo lettering on the collar as well.
Thank you for choosing Minus33.
Delivered as expected; appearance fully meets expectations. Will further review once used in cool weather!
We are happy to hear that you have received your Wilderness Expedition Full Zip and that the appearance meets your expectations so far! We will look forward to your next review when you get to try this garment in the cold weather!
These expedition weight full zip tops are awesome.
I just purchased my third. They usually last me about five years before I wear out the sleave cuffs. I also pair them with the expedition weight long Johns when riding my street motorcycle in cold weather.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review. We are glad to hear that your Minus33 Wilderness Expedition Full Zip keeps you warm on your cold weather rides.
I did not even know thermals could be this warm and stylish! I went to N Idaho snowmobiling and never took this top off! I layer the Minus 33 vest over the top of this zip up and the same bottoms. They are all I need under my shell skiing to keep warm! My wife runs super cold and she loves her gear as well! I have had several complements on the orange vest. I am 5' 10" athletic and the large fits me perfect. Normally I swim in the waist of thermals so I appreciate the athletic cut.
I've owned a number of other brands in the past but this full zip is simply the best. The fit is great and although it has a little bit of stretch, it hugs my upper body and keeps me warm. A few simple yet useful features are the arm length and thumb holes. The sleeves end just below my thumbs which keep the backs of my hands protected from the wind and cold. The thumb holes allow me to put on a heavier jacket without having the sleeves end up by my elbows.
I really can't say enough good things about this item or any of the other Minus33 items I have. My entire wardrobe, with the exception of pants, consist of Minus33 clothing. Socks, shirts (micro, light weight, mid-weight and expedition, Henley, Polos, long and short sleeve), base layers (for sleeping), I'm also happy to support a company in the state I've lived in my entire life.
It is great to hear how happy you are with your Wilderness Expedition Men's Wool Full Zip - Expedition.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and being a proud supporter of Minus33!
