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.
I enjoy the weight however it hangs down much too low. Unfortunately it hangs lower than Minus33’s Expedition Heavyweight which I have come accustomed to. I wouldn’t have purchased had I’d known.
We apologize for your disappointment in the length of the 2XT Chocorua men's midweight crew. If you would like to try our standard 2X, we would be happy to set up an exchange with you. The standard 2X will take off some of the length of the garment without sacrificing much of the fit in general. Please contact us at 603-968-3351 if you would like to get an exchange going.
temperature was around 5-10C and winds blowing, all I had was this, a hoodie, and a fleece jacket and I was toasty!
Thanks for writing this review! We're glad you liked the chocorua men's crew - midweight and found it to be a good fit and warm. We hope you have a great time at the festival!
Had one of these shirts for 10 years, elbows finally wore out. Was happy to see you still carried the 705 style. Just replaced it with 2 new ones. Very well made product and quick delivery.
Thanks for the review! We're happy to hear you've been happy with the quality and quick delivery of our 100% Merino Wool Chocorua Men's Crew - Midweight shirt.
I had previously owned a merino wool base layer shirt from a competitor who shall remain nameless out of respect, and I loved it until moths got to it and chewed it to bits. I was not deterred by this, although I was sad to have to 86 a favorite garment. Luckily, I discovered Minus33 after becoming a monthly member of Maine Public Radio and receiving a pair of this company’s socks as a free member gift, and decided to explore further. I got this lovely warm shirt in February right around the tie we had a polar vortex event here in New England, and it couldn’t have come at a better time! I was happy to discover more shirts like the Chocorua, and will certainly be purchasing more and other products for all seasons in the near future. Thank you Minus33 for being you from a satisfied and soon to be regular customer!
Thank you for the great review!
We are glad to hear you are enjoying your 100% Merino Wool Chocorua Men's Crew - Midweight. It is great to hear you will be purchasing more products from Minus33 in the future.
I decided to try some wool base layers and went with minus 33. Overall I’m satisfied. I haven’t had other wool base layers to compare to.
Pro: very breathable, decently warm, comfortable, good quality (few washes so far)
Cons: wash by self on delicate, wish they were a little thicker (235 g/m2) I looked at other brands where their mid weight base layer are heavier.
Overall I am satisfied with this product and would recommend.
