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.
Had to exchange for next size bigger and pay the difference for the bigger size.
Nice fabric. So far so good.
Had to send back a top that I found a hole in but it is being swapped out and heading back to me as I write. That was nice of them to do that.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review! We greatly appreciate your feedback and we are happy that our customer service team was able to help you!
Have a great Holiday,
My husband loves these. He works outdoors in the elements and they are super helpful.
The tall size fits my 6 foot 2 inch legs with coverage to the ankle. Soft breathable warmth like a nice hug. Supports year round riding around Dallas.
Thank you for leaving us a fantastic review! We are so glad to hear that you are enjoying our extended sizing! We launched this line to make sure that we can supply people of all shapes and sizes with quality gear so, that they can enjoy the outdoors.
Thank you for supporting Minus33,
These expedition weight bottoms have become my most used base layer bottom. Because wool has a wide temperature comfort range, I can wear these under thin pants in cold weather, under down pants in bitterly cold weather, and by themselves as indoors loungewear. In fact, they are more comfortable than sweatpants! Part of that is due to the extremely comfortable waistband that doesn't dig or roll.
Living in Northern Virginia, our winters are not that bad, but still these are my go to. The only times I don't use these in the winter is if we have a warm snap, or if I am doing strenuous exercise in temps above 20 degree Fahrenheit. With the "Expedition" label, it's easy to assume these would be a rarely used specialty piece, but they are so much more.
Thank you for providing such great detailed feedback on your Minus33 Katmai Men's Expedition Bottoms! We are happy to hear that they serve you well in so many different ways, during the winters down in Northern Virginia. The natural properties of merino wool, allow a heavier piece like the Katmai bottoms to be very breathable and able to be worn in a variety of different temperatures, even when it is not extremely cold, as you've found with your experience with wearing these bottoms. Thank you again for taking the time to share your feedback and experience with us, we greatly appreciate it!
This product is exceptional. It looks like fine woven cotton, but it feels much more pleasant. And it isolates very well. Unfortunately I can only really test it next winter. I drive my motorbike throughout the winter, and these pants should really help!
Thanks for the review! We're glad to hear that you're happy with the quality of your 100% Merino Wool Expedition Katmai Men's Bottoms. We're excited to see how they perform on your cold weather motorbike rides!
