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 travel internationally each month and exclusively take minus 33 merino boxers and T-shirts. They perform flawlessly and are easy to care for.
I bought these Algonquian T-shirts to wear under a flight suit for backcountry flying as a fire-resistant upgrade to cotton (fine in the summer but not for mountains in the winter) and Nomex (just gets smelly too quickly).
When I phoned in the order, the woman I spoke to suggested that I pick it up in person since they were right down the road - I had no idea. So my dog and I met two employees in person and they were the kind of people you'd want at your dinner table. I appreciated the military discount, too.
The shirts have held up well for quite a few washings. You can wear them for a couple days without smelling yourself, and then weighting them down with rocks in a stream for a while will "wash" them enough for a couple more days. They dry about as fast as cotton. The seams down the sides give them a nice trim fit, and are flat and comfortable. The crew necks have maintained their shape. They are long enough to stay tucked in. The fabric is as soft as Pima cotton.
I'll order more then these wear out, and if/when they make heavier weights in a desert tan color I'll order those, too.

Thank you again for choosing Minus33!
I discovered merino wool tees a couple of years ago, and I really think the Minus 33 ones are the cream of the crop. They seem to hold up better than the competitors and they fit well and look good. A little secret for cyclists: merino wool is far superior for cycling. Much better than the plastic stuff marketed as cycling kit.
Thank you for sharing your experience with and your feedback on the Minus33 Algonquin Men's Lightweight 100% Merino Wool Short Sleeve Crew. This piece is a personal favorite of mine, that I wear almost every day during the summer months. I couldn't agree more with your feedback. This is definitely one of the most comfortable short sleeve shirts that I've worn and I'm glad that you like this piece as well!
Thanks again for supporting Minus33.
Bought this for daily wear under my OCPs. This is great kit! Wore it three days straight in the summer heat of Missouri and it didn’t stink. All I had to do was air it out overnight. I highly recommend for replacement of CIF/Clothing Sales issued T-shirts.
Thank you for the review! The Missouri heat is definitely very warm in the summer. We're happy to hear that the Army T-Shirt is a great alternative to standard issue T-shirts and helps to keep you cool and dry during training.
My husband loves this shirt! Very well made, super soft and comfortable. We had a minor issue with the original purchase but customer service was outstanding and we received a replacement immediately. highly recommend.
We are ALWAYS happy to help Jane. Reach out anytime and thank you for the review!
