Minus33 sent us free product for the sake of this Chocorua Men’s Midweight Wool Crew review. This in no way shapes our opinions in this post, it just makes bringing you deets affordable, and I’m okay with that.
We recently went on an epic adventure. An adventure that took us from Pigeon Forge into the Great Smoky Mountains and the length of the Blue Ridge Parkway into southern Virginia. With the temperatures starting to drop as the leaves changed we were stoked to experience Fall in the Mountains!
We stayed in the lovely Black Fox Lodge, in Pigeon Forge our first night. And we knew that the mountain adventure ahead of us would have some colder nights when it came to weather. I’m so glad I packed Sean’s Minus33 Kancamagus Men’s Midweight Wool Bottom and Minus33 Chocorua Men’s Midweight Wool Crew. I knew we would need it but I had no idea just how much.

The Minus33 Chocorua Men’s Midweight Wool Crew is versatile and comfortable. Designed as a three-season garment, it works great as either a base or mid layer. The Midweight styles have all the same natural qualities as the Lightweight Merino Wool, with greater insulation. Minus33 Merino Wool Clothing is perfect as a base layer for a day on the slopes or as an emergency pullover when a cold front rolls in just before you summit.
In our case, it was perfect for chilly mountain mornings and cool nights by the fire.
My Minus33 Chocorua Men’s Midweight Wool Crew Review
There were two nights in particular that the wool bottom and wool crew came in dire need. The first night was when we were tent camping at 33 degrees. No joke, it was pretty cold. Sean had his layer of Minuss33 wool on and I remember feeling how soft it was… then immediately thinking how jealous I was that I didn’t have my own set. I need to work on that! Sean said he was never cold, he even got up in the middle of the night to check the campsite without a flinch. Meanwhile, my son and I were huddled together with the dog, looking for warmth.
Sean loves the set, he’s never going to another cold place without it. Now I have to work on getting myself and my son a set for our future adventures! I will say though, the price point is a little high for my taste but well worth the quality. We will have this set for many, many years. So I feel it’s a good buy for what you’re getting. Plus, you never want to gamble being cold in the woods!
