Why Merino Wool?
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.
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.
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.
Absolutely the best leggings ever ! I couldn’t bear to take them off and wear anything else so ended up ordering more ! Super comfy , well made , perfect length , soft , don’t get all baggy , perfect weight , can hike in them without getting too hot but keep me warm when It’s cold out . I’ve been searching for the perfect legging and I found it !!!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us an amazing review. We are very happy to hear that you've finally found the perfect legging for you here at Minus33!
I enjoy the leggings for under my knee brace. They are light for summer hiking at higher altitudes and comfortable under the brace. Also, Minus 33 was very helpful when my original order wasn't available. The communication was excellent.
We are pleased to hear that your Minus33 Magalloway Bottoms are working out for you. Being comfortable while hiking is super important. Thank you for the great review!
These are called medium weight. I'm surprised at how much fabric is really there. They feel protective and durable. Thanks!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review! The weight and knit of these bottoms are what give them the extra durability even though they are on the lighter side of our spectrum. At the weight of 170 g/m2, along with the Lightweight Jersey Knit, these bottoms are great if your looking for something light but also durable and protective.
I absolutely LOVE the Minus33 wool. The shirts are great - good temperature regulation, good fit and not scratchy like other wool brands. I loved it so much, I bought multiple shirts and a pair of tights.
Thank you for taking the time to write this great review!
very warm for it’s thickness and comfortable
