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.

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 LOVE this vest!

I love this vest so much that I just ordered a second one! The fabric is strong and warm, yet flexible and soft. It provides that perfect extra layer without any bulkiness. The vest has a very smooth and non fussy look, without looking dowdy. I have warn it almost every day since I bought it and it washes very well. I feel like I have been searching for this vest for years and have finally found the old friend I was looking for!


We're so happy you love this vest! We love that it's strong and warm, but also flexible and soft.

Terrific vest!

We don't live far from Minus33 and are able to pick up products ourselves. We love the merino wool warmth, softness and durability for our ski and winter wear. The clothing is also great-looking. Just bought the vest and much thinner than a down vest, it was so warm and wonderful to wear on its own or under a jacket. Very, very happy with my purchase. TY!


Great to hear you are enjoying the warmth, softness, and durability for your winter activities using our Wilderness Expedition Women's Wool Vest - Expedition.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review!

This merino wool vest is the most valuable item of clothing in my cold-weather walking arsenal. On cold days, I wear it over a warm underlayer, topped with a jacket. It confers an almost magical feeling of warmth and protection. I even wear it around the house on cold days. I’d love to see it in other colors!

Thank you so much for leaving such a magical review of the Wilderness Expedition Women's Wool Vest - Expedition! Happy warm winter walking!
