Minus 33® Tanana Women's Expedition Crew | Product Spotlight | Mountain Matron

Women’s Heavyweight Merino Wool Top | Black | $95.99




Minus 33®, based in New Hampshire, still operates on the grounds of its original mill from 1916. This Minus 33® women’s tagless heavyweight 100% Merino wool Expedition Crew is cut nicely and with the flat locks seams it fits beautifully. Our female tester of 5’ 8” noted the body length to be much longer than expected and the sleeve length the same. The Minus 33® Expedition Crew sits close to the body and doesn’t add bulk, while performing with ease and non-constrictive movement. The Minus 33® Tanana Women’s Expedition Crew tested during the dark morning months of winter as a mid-layer maintained its ‘go-to’ status all season long. After performing month after month the fit, function, and anticipated body temperature regulation in extended outdoor activity, was top-notch. Your top won’t ride up, bunch up or make you feel restricted. The Merino wool is soft to the touch, the tagless neckline fits comfortably, and the UPF protection is powerful. The Minus 33® Tanana Women’s Expedition Crew rates 5 out of 5 stars for its all-around performance, comfortable fit, and classic style.

This top was tested during canyon activity in sunless temperatures just above 30F, as well as strenuous activity in exposed sunlight well above 60F. The tester did not field-test this product in arctic weather or during extreme snow conditions, but the heavyweight of this Merino wool when paired and layered correctly works phenomenally as cold weather protection. Your Minus 33® Tanana Women’s Expedition Crew will be a favorite cold weather mid-layer essential, during high – low impact outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, backpacking and camping.
