    Great Merino T-shirt w/ Uniquenesses

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: LRG

    Thank you to Backcountry.com and Minus33 for hand-selecting me to review this piece of gear for the benefit of the backcountry.com community.



    I love merino wool shirts and how they effectively keep you warm even when wet. I've used them mostly for hiking and trail running, and love their ability to insulate. The Minus33 fits right in with my best experiences in merino wool. The Minus33 has a beautiful green to it that reminds me of a shaded gully hidden in a deep forest. The triple stitching on the seams pounds the chest of durability, and the shoulder seems fit me slightly offset to minimize chafe from daypack shoulder straps. And because it's merino, you can wear this guy over and over--and over-- with minimal, if any, stink.



    At 6'3" and 185lbs. I'm pretty thin, and it's really hard to find a t-shirt with the right length that isn't baggy. However, this Minus33 in a LRG fits my length spot on without making me look food deprived, and I can truthfully say I wouldn't want the shirt to be even a centimeter longer/shorter--perfect!



    One thing I wasn't in love with is the longer sleeve length on this t-shirt. Maybe it's because I prefer shorter sleeves that cover roughly 2/3 of my bicep, but the sleeves on this shirt run more like the length of a golf shirt stopping just short of my elbow (my dress shirt sleeve length is 36" for reference). If you like short-sleeve shirts with longer sleeves for added sun protection or that golfer look, this is definitely the way to go, but if you prefer your guns to run partially exposed, you may have this shirt tailored; be advised.



    My other hangup was the neckline, which I felt was too tight. Maybe I just need to wear the shirt in a bit more, but after a few wearings, my opinion holds: the neckline isn't the standard size; it's significantly smaller, which makes the shirt run high on the neckline--it's most apparent in the front.



    If you'll be wearing this shirt in sunny weather and want to stick to the higher-end of sun protection via t-shirt, this Minus33 will offer you greater protection for your arms with slightly longer sleeves, and better coverage for your upper chest/neck area with the higher neckline. The superfine merino wool will keep you cool in the heat and warm in chillier conditions, and if it gets wet, simply take it off, wring it out, and pop it back on for renewed warmth--something cotton 'n synthetics fail to offer.

    Great Merino T-shirt w/ Uniquenesses

    Update on shirt: I've used this guy a number of times hiking now (mostly at higher elevation and when I anticipate being in afternoon thunder storms) and it's still holding up well with no signs of wear. It has an odd, wrinkled appearance after washing (I let it air dry), but as far as I can tell it's very durable and hasn't lost its shape.

    I do stand by my original position though that the neckline on this shirt is awkwardly high/tight, but I'm happy to report that the sleeves no longer feel quite as long as they did--maybe the washings have improved that portion of the shirt's fit.

    Why do I love the Algonquin Lightweight crew from minus33? I wear it as an undershirt at work, I run in it, as a baselayer under expedition weight tops for really cold (-10 days) and just hanging out. It feels good - wearing a natural fiber like merino in a dry environment keeps my skin from drying out because of the lanolin in the wool. The fit is more performance than relaxed in my opinion, which is good for me. I know the pic doesn't show the tee but it was windy 45 degree day at Eldora skiing with my kids and I drove up in the tee, threw on my shell, skied all day with the munchkins and had a blast! Love my Algonquin Lightweight Crew!!
