Why Merino Wool?
Core Spun Technology
Core Spun yarn provides extra durability while still offering merino's properties next to the skin. The nylon inner core is wrapped with Merino Wool and a touch of spandex for stretch.
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.
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.
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.
The material is very nice but the cut of the briefs in the lower crotch area is way too narrow. Very uncomfortable to wear as "everything" spills out to the sides.

I love my gear from minus33 it’s all super comfortable and has made a huge impact in my life when it comes to something really sustainable. Wool is perfect for my very sensitive skin and i’ve struggled with this in clothing in the past. Good for all seasons which is exactly what I need to keep me regulated at all times. Recently i’ve changed all my clothing to wool and hemp especially but also other sustainable sources that are organic. I’ll continue to buy from minus33 due to the overall amazing experience i’ve had. I recommend any indoor and outdoor gear from minus33 to anyone. I recently got some base layers for my future winter outings and i’m gonna get another pair cause this year were gonna have a long winter.
We are ecstatic to hear that you think our Merino Wool is super comfortable and has made such an impact on your life.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review!
Been wearing cotton for years but these are way more comfortable. Great for those who live in hot humid places like I do here in the swamps of South Carolina. Fit is more traditional like cotton briefs unlike Ice Breakers briefs. These give more room for the jewels. Merino wool/nylon is the way to go. Only thing I’d want different would be an olive drab or camo color for military use.
The Woolverino Men's Wool Briefs are great all year round. When the humidity is high, they definitely stand up to the test! Thank you for the great review.
I have had multiple merino wool underwear styles and brands in the past. These are now my favorite. I have had trouble with the legs on the boxer brie style always bunching up as I ran or hiked. These obviously don't do this. They are incredibly comfortable in all weather conditions. I ordered 2 pairs to be my new backpacking underwear option but will be ordering more to be my everyday wear. They are simple, comfy, warm, cool, wicking, and pack down very small.
We are pleased to hear that your Woolverino Men's underwear are your favorite. Thank you for the great review and stay safe while backpacking!
I’m a firm believer in merino wool and have been wearing it for years! I have their briefs 1/4 zips and beanies, in my opinion no other maker comes close when it comes to i minus’s 33 cudd beanie!!!! My 1/4 zip is over 4 years old and is worn daily in cooler weather.I have merino wool from several different makers but my minus 33 is my go to every time! I’ve just received the briefs so I don’t have a lot to say as of yet other than they feel comfortable and durable, time will tell. I also just realized the make socks, I’ve just ordered a couple of pair and will give a update on those also. If your in the market for merino wool clothing I highly recommend trying minus’s 33 you won’t be disappointed!! Keep up the good work and thanks for what y’all do!!
Thank you Alan!
