Fit FAQs

What if I am between sizes?

If you are between sizes, we recommend sizing up or down based on what fit type you would prefer, and based on how you plan to wear the piece. Our knitted merino is stretchy and you could realistically go with either size. If you would prefer an Athletic fit, size down. If you prefer a Regular or Relaxed fit, size up.

Do I need to size up/down to layer?

Generally, no, you do not need to purchase a different size than normal. Our base layers are designed to fit right into your current layering system. They are also designed to work with other products in our line, too. You may wish to adjust your sizing if you plan to wear one of our garments in a way that it is not intended, if that's the case please feel free to contact our customer service team for help.

Does your clothing run true to size?

Yes, our clothing runs true to size and is sized similar to most other American brands. If a sizing discrepancy is discovered, you will see fit advice in that product's specific listing.

These hearty mid-layers are built to last with a double layer Ponte knit that is sure to beef up your next adventure.

Wilderness Details

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.

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+.

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. 



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.

Very nice and soft!

We have traveled to places like South Dakota-35Fwind shield factor -53F, Alaska- Yakutat , Canada - Victoria Island Russia Moskow, and I found myself warm but sweating and very uncomfortable with bulky layers sometimes. Our next adventure will be Finland's Lapland above the arctic circle Jan 2024, I am normaly a cold person so keeping warm is my first Priority- ( originally from Pretoria, South Africa, not ised to the cold but I love it!! . Since I haven't worn it out yet, I hope to return to update this review later . I wore my baselayer for a day after I washed it, and it washed well.
It was very comfortable,could move around easily and don't feel restricted or heavy or even to bulky. Its EXTREMELY SOFT- no more scratchy baselayers. Will travel with it to Apalacian Mountains the end of the year hopefully it will be nice and cold so I can give it a pretest. I bought my husband and daughter some too, because it is so soft and comfortable.

Thank you for your feedback! We apologize for the inconvenience. The original thumbholes were replaced with a more comfortable design as part of our regular updates to the product.

Love the Blue Color

Nice fit, fabric weight and jacket style. Wear it often for hiking, either under a shell as an insulating layer or just over a base layer.


Thank you for the kind words! We're happy to hear that you like the jacket style and fit, and that it works well as an insulating layer or just over a base layer for you. We think that the navy blue color is especially beautiful!

Stay warm,
