    Couple Wearing Minus33 Midweight Merino Wool Base Layer Outfits

    Versatile and comfortable, our Merino Wool will always have your back. Designed as a three-season garment, our Midweight works great as either a base or mid layer.

    Midweight Details

    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.

    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.

    Everything I have purchased from this company has been beyond impressive… This coming from a guy that fishes ALLOT when it’s below freezing…
    By far, the finest wool, and garment cuts of any outdoor company I roll with!

    Best investment.

    I’ve worked construction outside for well over 2 decades and nothing beats this stuff underneath your carhartts or jeans when the weather turns. Even on those days when you warm up and have to peel a layer your comfortable. Next to the skin=no chafing or constant pulling up.I’ve tried them all….the compression synthetic ones new and old…nothing compares. These are superior,well made and long lasting. Spend the money, then spend it again on a second set. You won’t regret it.


    We are glad to hear that your staying warm and comfortable while working outside in the ever changing weather. Thank you for the wonderful review!

    I immediately started getting compliments

    This looks great. It feels great. The hood is often the hardest part to get to look right and it’s perfect. It fits me very well and hangs in a flattering way. The very first time I wore it around other people I was complimented on it and on my physique. And I definitely had not lost my Covid weight yet.


    We are glad to hear that if it's very flattering on you and that your enjoying you Minus33 Trailblazer Full Zip Hoodie. Thanks for the great review!
