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.

Anti-Microbial

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+.

Renewable

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.

Return received three weeks ago, no refund yet :(

The material is nice, not what describe as expedition weight maybe medium weight, but the hat is a bit smaller than it looks. I had thought I could fold over the had to have a double layer at my ears and that's not possible. I have an average sized head and very short hair so my head's not exactly occupying a lot of space. So, if you wear it exactly as it shows in the pictures it's probably fine, but if you want to wear it watch cap style it's a no go. I like their sweatshirts a lot so I was hoping to get a heavy hat from them but if this is their heaviest I don't think it'll work for me (I like my heats heavy).

The return: Minus33 received my return on 11/26 and on 12/17 I haven't even gotten an acknowledgement email, and there's been no refund yet.

Evan,
I am so sorry about the refund time frame. I am sending along a second email to you with a discount code for your next purchase.
Thank you for taking the time to give us a review of the 100% Merino Wool Knit Beanie - Expedition. We are sorry that the beanie did not work out to you. Customer feedback is very important to us, we are always sure to get reviews over to our Product Development Team.

Soft and tightly-knit

I thought twice about buying this because a previous reviewer reported it as too small to wear in the traditional watch cap manner, folded up with a double-layer over your ears. But I have a small head (7 1/8 hat size) so I went ahead. It works well enough for me, but another half-inch of length would indeed be nice. I have a cashmere watch cap to compare it to, and this one of merino feels about as soft, and is more tightly-knit and therefore more wind-resistant.

Thank you for your feedback! We're glad to hear that the beanie is soft and tightly-knit! An increase in length of 1 half-inch could be great all around! so we will let our Product Development team know about your suggestion!

Super comfy and warm without any scratchiness

I was out of town for a canoe race last April and the weather got suddenly very cold. The evening before the race, I drove to a high-end outdoor gear store and this beanie was the only winter hat they had in stock. I'd never heard of Minus33. It looked thin and was twice the price I planned to pay, but I had no choice and got it.

So glad I did! I stayed warm and won my class at the race the next day, and have worn it for several other races. It lets me dress lightly under my PFD (life vest) and control my body temp by putting on or removing the hat.

I thought it might be itchy, as I have lots of itchy wool and alpaca gear, but this hat is not at all itchy. It fits without slipping down, but isn't tight or pinchy. I have plenty of room to double it over at the brim to keep my ears warm. It's warm down to about 25F and I even wear it indoors. (I work next to a window and it's 10F here in Wisconsin as I write.) I like it so much I came to the website today to get some other Minus33 gear.

Sharon,
