Perfect moutain bottoms

Fit is superb (true to size and not too tight at the calves, plenty of room for the skiier's/cyclist's badonk and thunder thighs), length is great for ski and mountaineering socks (no more weird layer bunching under boots), and they are warm and soft. Not at all scratchy, merino wool is my new favorite fiber for every piece of clothing.

The length is, as others have mentioned, closer to a 5/8 length (the top of the cuff hits right below my knees), but this is a good thing as they don't really have anywhere to go when I'm being active.
