Minus33 Men’s 100% Wool Base Layer Lightweight Short Sleeve Crew will wick moisture away from the skin approximately 30 percent faster than any synthetic fabric.
No fabric does that quite like Merino wool. While synthetics are passive, Merino Wool is active, reacting to changes in ones body temperature to keep you warm when you’re cold but releasing heat and moisture when you’re hot.
This base layer from Minus33 is made from 100% Merino wool which is so soft and supple it is unbelievable while being machine washable and dryable as well. This may be the most comfortable fabric you will ever wear.
The natural elasticity of the Merino Wool fiber means they stretch with the wearer, but then return to their natural shape so there is less chance of the Minus33 Men’s 100% Wool Base Layer Lightweight Short Sleeve Crew sagging or losing its shape.

Minus33 Men’s 100% Wool Base Layer Short Sleeve Crew Reviews
With one exception there were only very positive reviews for the Minus33 Men’s 100% Wool Base Layer Short Sleeve Crew. The one negative review was that the manufacturers logo was embossed on the chest and is not on the picture.
Everyone who posted reviewers thought these were excellent shirts. One person stated that you might think it’s still pretty costly for a t-shirt, but this is no normal t-shirt. Another mentioned that they are pricey, but with the quality of both the material and the construction I feel Minus33 deserves it. Especially if it lasts for 4,5,10 years. Buy one! or Two!
People liked that they are super soft and do not start to stink for a few days of hard wear which is a good thing. They don’t shrink much or not at all depending on the reviewer if you do put them in the dryer but it will make them wear quicker.
Several reviewers commented on the sizes, most feel it runs 1 size small. Order 1 size large if you want a great Eco friendly shirt said another person. I couldn’t decide between a small or a medium, went with medium and it fits like a regular t-shirt loose but not baggy. I imagine the small would work too for a more athletic fit.
When it’s been cooler I’ve worn it as a base layer under a long sleeve shirt or light jacket. When it’s been warmer I’ve worn it by itself. It kept me warm when it was cool out, and when it was warm and I worked up a good sweat it breathed well and wicked sweat away very effectively. I’m confident it will perform well in hotter temperatures too. What they say about merino wool’s natural odor fighting abilities is spot on; it just works. This review is paraphrased, see original review here.
The Minus33 Men’s 100% Wool Base Layer Lightweight Short Sleeve Crew is a great all year base layer for cycling, hiking or any outdoor activity due to the benefits of the Merino wool.
