Our Midweight styles have all the same natural qualities as our Lightweight Merino Wool, with greater insulation. Minus33 Merino Wool Clothing is perfect as a base layer for a day on the slopes or as an emergency pullover when a cold front rolls in just before you summit.

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.
Without a doubt the best balaclava you can boy online, better than the expedition weight one because this is still breathable even when wet, other merino wool balaclavas are inferior in design. Other non-merino balaclavas use inferior fabric that aren't as fine or they are plastic.
The only negative of this balaclava is that it has 1 large hole fo rthe eyes. There are plastic balaclavas which have a 2 hole design for the individual eyes or a 3 hole for the eyes and mouth so they have a superior design, they're only inferior because they're made of plastic.
A merino wool balaclava with a 2 hole or 3 hole design would be good. This 1 large hole leaves a lot of skin exposed especially when you're moving a lot and the bottom slides lower down your cheekbones and nose.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We are still a small company so, we love hearing what our customers are looking for. I am going to get your message over to product development to keep in mind for future production runs!
I have an employee with a larger cranium. we have had a difficult time finding a balaclava that fit correctly. This one was perfect. keeps him warm too.
Thank you for your review! We're glad to hear that the 100% Merino Wool Balaclava - Midweight was a perfect fit for your employee and that it kept him warm too. We hope you continue to enjoy it!
The balaclava is well made with quality materials.
The tag boldly states “made in Vietnam”. I thought this product was made in the States. I could have gotten one at Walmart if I wanted something made in Vietnam. Don’t know if going to keep. So disappointed
We apologize for your disappointment in where this item is currently being manufactured. We try our best to be clear on which items are manufactured here in the United States. Which at this time is only our Mountain Heritage line of socks. We will gladly set up a return for you if you'd like. A current goal of ours here at Minus33, is to re-shore as much of our manufacturing as possible in the coming years. The start of this, was the purchasing of our first four sock machines which are currently up and running here in Ashland, NH. In addition, we currently have more machines on the way to increase the variety of socks that we can manufacture here at our facility. Beyond that, we have plans to continue the remodeling of the original L.W Packard mill to include more machines, for more items to be made here in New Hampshire.
As all goods from Minus33, these are excellent quality. Soft, absorbent and perfect weight and warmth even in subzero temps.
Thank you! We are happy to hear that you love our quality, and warmth on our mid-weight balaclava.
