            Wilderness Expedition

            Our new Wilderness Expedition collection is designed to be lighter weight than our classic Expedition line, twice as durable, and just as warm. These hearty mid-layers are built to last with a double layer Ponte knit that is sure to beef up your next adventure. From early morning bushwhacks to your favorite tree stand, to long wet days in the alpine zone, and every climb, creek crossing, and dog walk in between, we’ve got you covered.

            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?

            Moisture Wicking

            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.

            Anti-Microbial

            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.

            Fire Resistant

            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.

            UV Protection

            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+.

            Renewable

            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.

            Great but buyer beware!

            Great quality and quite warm as well. I can wear it over just my mid-weight base layer - minus33 of course - and be fine in the 40s F for short periods. Throw a wool shirt and a jac-shirt ontop of those and I can work outside at 30 degrees forever. The problem is sometimes I can't take it off. I just love having it on but all my other clothes are green with envy over it.

            Now one request though... You have all these beautiful colors in the light and mid-weight line and the expedition line is black. Plain old boring black. This seems to be universal among performance clothing companies. But my dear friends at minus33, I beg you to part ways from tradition and embrace the full spectrum of color! Black is so dark and I only wear this because it is so awesome. But I'd be doubly pleased if I could get it in olive drab or an earthy blue or red. Consider this please!

            And thank you

            Long torso

            Awesome fabric, construction, and fit. My only complaint is that the torso length is about 1.5-2inches too long. The best hangs well below many of my other jackets. I’d love to see a version with a ribneck collar like you’d see on a bomber jacket. That’s be pretty sporty I think.

            Love it

            Great piece of gear. I wish it had a chest pocket.

            Love this vest

            I have been wearing your wool underwear for years , and finally found the ideal layer. This vest is warm and comfortable, fits well as a second layer over 1st long Jon layer. Not having sleeves it’s more comfortable, keeping warmth on my core without extra pair of sleeves. After hunting season it might be great to lounge in. 👏

            I know right?! Having just a little something extra to keep that core warm does wonders! Thanks for dropping us a review!
