As others have said, this merino wool is cool in hot weather and warm in cold weather.
Travis R Hawver
I had read about the sizing of these tending to run small, but I still got my normal "medium" size.
D. Johnson
It also breathes so well and wicks so well- it's actually cooler than cotton on hot days.

Because cotton is so bad for holding odor and moisture (which causes chaffing), I had switched to UnderArmor. Wow, that didn't help the odor. Don't believe their no odor claim! UA holds odor that you can't even wash out. When I found out about merino wool, I thought, "that's too good to be true". I looked at the reviews on Amazon and it seemed that everyone agreed.

ODOR CONTROL::
I decided to do a "ugly" test on these merino wool underwear; I wore them for several days. I was amazed when (on the last day) I went to use the restroom and I did not even have an odor on my skin; and no, I would not be use to it. The UA underwear would just about knock me out when I used the restroom. Then recently, I wore them in mid 90's temperature's, making new steps for my walkway. It was an all day job and when I completed, my clothes were soaked. I was wearing my merino wool underwear and a merino wool short sleeve base layer top (and jeans of course or I'd be arrested) and none of my clothes had an odor... NONE. It is obvious that the odor from the underwear is the majority of the odor that transfers to the outer layer worn (jeans, etc). This product is well worth the cost for everyone.

SIZING:
I read the reviews on the sizing and made my choice from there. I'm 6'4" at about 190 pounds. I hike regularly and lift weights occasionally. At 190, I'm not a particularly large man but rather have an athletic build. This is important for your info trust me. One concern I had was constricting around the legs as many people complained about, and too tight elsewhere. One thing we must understand, people like to wear different types of underwear so this is important. I prefer the snug, athletic support, fit. I wear a 30 - 31 waist and ordered a medium because people said they were sized small.

I know what you're thinking- wool for men's briefs? "Gonna be hot and itchy, like the old union suits. "

Not so, Buffalo Bob! Merino wool is soft and itchless. It also breathes so well and wicks so well- it's actually cooler than cotton on hot days. (Of course, it's also warmer than cotton on cold days.) For hiking, merino wool is far superior.

Of course, Merino wool doesn't last as long as synthetics or even cotton. However, its life can be extended by hand washing in Eucalan, even though these are machine washable.

Minus 33 bills the size I got as a "xxxl" but it's more like a "xxl", I suggest you read the sizing guide before buying.

I have now tried all three merino wool men's briefs out there- Smartwool, Icebreaker and now Minus 33. Icebreaker had deceptive sizing, scads of tags, a high price and wore out very quickly. Smartwool has the least tags, fairly good sizing, decent wear and a middling price. Minus 33 has a minor sizing issue (check out the size guide), a couple of tags (why?), and is the least expensive if bought here. I have not owned mine long enough to be able to comment on the wear issue.

So, I'd say give them a try. Trust me guys, merino wool is *THE* way to go for hiking, or any extended outdoor use. No more chafing, etc.

After being recently put on the deployment list at my company, I was advised that we shouldn't wear UnderArmour or other poly-based microfiber clothing over to Iraq or Afghanistan due the risk of being shrink-wrapped in case of an IED or other combustion situation.

Following some research and trepidation about wool underwear (I've been wearing UnderArmour for the last several years; UA's wicking is nice on the humid East Coast) I decided to try -33 as more price competitive compared to the Smartwool options. Warning: -33 are at least 50% more expensive than UA and double the price of a fruit of the loom 4-pack. Smartwool is even more expensive. Unfortunately I ended up wasting $32 buying what should have been my size (xxl) Umm...wow they were tight.

They did however show promise. I then bought several sets in xxxl. After several days wearing them around town (plus the -33 T-shirts too) I can report that they are remarkably comfortable. The fabric is smooth, almost like a very high quality jersey sheet. No itching at all.

Compared to UA, they do retain heat at the early stages of exertion, but the wicking effect kicks in and equalizes the heat. On the other hand, my office is pretty cold and the -33's do feel warmer compared to the UA, even after hiking from one end of the building to the other and back. I have not tried them during gym workouts or bike rides so that will have to wait for later experimentation. Washing them is easy in cold water, and they dry quickly on the rack. The instructions say they can be tossed in the dryer on low - however I am dreading what happens when the KBR laundry in the sandbox gets hold of them.

Four things that I would improve, were I in charge of -33 for a day: 1. get rid of or minimize the tags; 2.

i use these while hiking and such in hot and humid FL. i prefer these over many of the other wool briefs i have tried, good fit, wicks moisture away well, no chafing. i do wish the fit would be a bit tighter and shorter, these are pretty long and don't fit too close to the body (which some people might like). i would prefer this short to be closer to a compression short, however i have yet to find a manufacture that produces a short like that.

in short, this short is the best of it's kind i have found.
