I can't speak highly enough of Minus 33's 100% merino wool clothing! After scouring hundreds of online reviews, I purchased this Minus33 Women's 'Liberty' Merino Wool Lightweight 1/4-zip Base Layer Top in grey with the intention of thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. This turned out to be my Every Day Shirt on the trail. Unless you try it, you just won't be able to believe how ideal this shirt is! The knit is fine and I did have to be careful to not catch it in the buckle of my hip belt. It feels like the softest thinnest t-shirt; not a single itch or scratch! What they say about Merino wool is true ... it does not hold body stink like synthetics do! The seams are all well made and comfortable. Never had any problems with the zipper. The sleeves are slightly on the long side but then I'm short and the sleeves served well to pull down over my hands somewhat when I didn't quite need gloves. This is NOT a heavy shirt! It's supremely lightweight. Machine wash and dry, too! (I was always sure to never dry hot) AND they have really big sizes! Just can't say enough good things about it! This is a hands down winner for me. It's going to last me forever, too!
I was worried that it would look manly but isn't. I bought the tan color, which is actually soft and toned down. It is, however, a bit large for my feet (women 6 1/2 - 7). I bought small, which I found to be a bit larger than I would like, or maybe I am just used to women's socks that fit my feet perfectly. Besides sizing, these socks are warm and provide much support. I wore it today for my long walk (5 hours) and felt like stepping on clouds in them. I don't know yet how they will stand the test of time.
These tights were advertised as a midweight or medium weight product, but I would have to disagree. They are pretty thin-- feel like unlined spandex. They are comfortable and stretch a lot both throughout the body and in the waist band. I wear a size 6 but ordered the medium-- they'll be fine, but probably should have ordered the small. These have a pretty smooth profile and would be good for someone who needs lightweight thermal bottoms underneath their normal clothes or work uniform as I do. Definately a lot less bulk than my merino wool bottoms, but then they don't seem as warm or as wind resistant. Another good thing about these bottoms is that they don't have underwear-like crotch seaming, so you can probably get away with wearing them as a running tight and no one would look at you funny. So, for versatility, smooth/low profile styling, comfort, and affordable price, consider these thermals-- just don't expect them to be super warm!
