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+.

Australian merino wool sheep


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.

Exceptional wool garment

Having worn wool for most of my outdoor life, I have learned to appreciate fine wool garments. What makes Minus 33 wool clothing so outstanding and exceptional is its fine wool, fine craftsmanship and it knit. It is such a pleasure to wear such a fine wool garment from Minus 33. I am so looking forward to my next Minus 33 wool garment. Let us not forget about the sustainability of wool.

Nice vest but not as warm as advertised

I was looking for a thick warm wool vest to give me insulation under my sailing jacket. I like this vest, it is well made and fits nice, but it does not meet my needs. When I took it out of the box, I was skeptical since it is about as thick as a woman's cardigan. I figured it must be made of some magic fabric since the reviews are so high and gave it a chance. Not impressed. Hiking with additional layers, cold. Sitting and drinking beer with other layers and a moderately cold day in Maryland, cold. Sorry to be a downer but I feel this thing needs to be about twice as thick to live up to this hype. I havent taken it sailing yet, I plan to, but will be bring many additional layers.


Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a detailed review. We appreciate getting feedback on the fit of our products. We will let our product development team know about your experience and suggestions!

Soft, warm, and good weight. Excellent layer over base layer for mid temps and under jacket for colder. Zippered pockets on the outside are great for travel, interior pockets are functional and the collar is high enough to keep your neck warm. Overall excellent
