The Path Less Traveled #044: Minus33 Merino Wool Booth – VIDEO
Andrew D 01.31.22
So, I was graced with the opportunity to scour over the floors of SHOT Show and find products that interested me, rather than just type up a thousand articles about things I may or may not like. One of the brands that came across my radar was the Minus33 Merino Wool Booth. Spent some time with John Glidden and went over their newest products.
Welcome to our recurring series of “The Path Less Traveled.” In this series, we want to take you along for our exploits out in the wilderness while hiking, camping, exploring, and general adventuring. This will include our small daily victories, foibles, tips, tricks, and reviews of gear we authentically appreciate and frequently utilize. While a well-worn trail can often be the pathway to a leisurely day, the paths less traveled can often spur on some of the greatest memories, misadventures, and fun we could imagine. Join us in the Comments as we share our travels and hopefully, we can all come together for a greater appreciation of the outdoors.

No one should feel uncomfortable or ill-prepared in the outdoor community, and having reliable gear is one of the first steps toward a lifetime of passion for whatever your activity is.”
Products that interested me
MOUNTAIN HERITAGE FULL CUSHION OVER THE CALF WOOL SOCKS
The Full Cushion over the calf socks fall under their Micro Weight line and have zoned full cushioning in the bottom. At the booth, they were truly squishy feeling and I couldn’t keep my mitts off them, and wanted to buy a pair right there.
100% MERINO WOOL CHOCORUA MEN’S CREW
A midweight wool long sleeve shirt that would fit well at home, or on a long drive. It’d be great for days when the temperature and wind can’t make up it’s mind whether you need that jacket or not.
