Minus33 Women’s Kenai Expedition Bottoms

Explore the deep backcountry or just chill in the backyard with these heavyweight Minus33 Kenai Women’s Expedition Merino wool bottoms.


Backcountry explorers should rejoice! The Minus33 Kenai Women’s Expedition Wool Bottoms are one of the warmest Merino leggings on the market. The 400-GSM heavyweight fabric (or as Minus33 calls it: expedition weight) will protect you in any winter weather.

Moreover, we can’t ignore the enhanced comfort features of these bottoms. The soft, 18.5-micron fiber diameter feels excellent next to your skin, but that’s not all. Minus33 has incorporated flatlock seams, a gusseted crotch, and a Merino-covered waistband. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about seam irritation or “spandex burn” while you are out exploring nature.

Also, we love how Minus33 names their different base layers. Alaska’s playground – the Kenai peninsula – offers a vast amount of cold-weather outdoor activities. Therefore, these Kenai leggings are the perfect legwear to explore the wonderous landscape of Kenai.
