          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.

          Much Better

          I had ordered the midweight balaclava at first along with the midweight bottoms. I hate to say, which I already did, I don’t know what use the midweight balaclava has. This one though is actually great: very thick, very warm, hefty. It keeps it’s shape better too because of the increased thickness. It’s still a little loose from what I expect a balaclava so it still shifts around a little sometimes, but it hasn’t been much of an issue considering how warm and comfortable it is. If you want a balaclava to actually keep your face warm in freezing temperatures, this is the one you need. I don’t wear balaclavas unless it gets that cold, so maybe the midweight one just isn’t useful to me. Minus33 did contact me and let me return it for free in order to buy and exchange for the expedition weight which was great customer service. This balaclava is definitely worth it.
