Minus 33 Merino Underwear - Expedition Weight Bottoms
« on: May 13, 2012, 03:36:21 pm »
Wore these almost constantly for about three months - just washed them periodically. Great product held up very well, did not stretch, pucker, rip, etc. After about a month the crotch seam stitching started to fray slightly. I put down a close, snug blanket stitch along the whole crotch with some cotton thread and that stopped any further fraying. Impressed with how these held up while walking and skiing. They were worn inside a pair of heavy, coarse woven wool pants or tight fitting jeans. The fabric shows little sign of abrasion or wear - not even the little nits that my smartwool gets.

Fairly happy with the warmth, comfort range. Could be a little thicker for the coldest temps, 35 and below while stationary. Guess they are only made for 33.

Great product and among the most affordable expedition weight merino out there.
