This is the area where I talk about gear that I like, use, and trust. From the smallest piece – probably a binding screw – to the largest – probably a tent – gear makes it all possible. Without good quality gear, getting into the mountains would be a lot more dangerous, a lot less exciting, and definitely a lot chillier!
Minus33 Merino Wool Clothing – Staying in shape year round requires constant activity, and few products feel as good next to the skin as merino wool. It’s soft and itch free. Not only that, but merino doesn’t retain odors as many other baselayers do, so one need not bring their workout odor with them to the next activity. Perhaps more important, especially for those of us who spend plenty of time at chilly elevations, merino wicks superbly and dries very quickly, helping to guard against hypothermia. It also provides the added benefit of insulating while wet, which many competing fabrics are incapable of doing. From socks to boxers to hats and everywhere in between, I wear Minus33 clothing on my adventures year round.
