Comparison with other merino bottoms

    Icebreaker Nature Lite Leggings are my favorites when compared directly with Stoic Merino, though I'm keeping them, too. Choosing the correct size for each brand was key. I am 5'2" and around 110lbs, with a straighter waist-to-hip ratio (i.e., no butt). With the earlier reviews and comments in mind, I tried sizes XS and S in each brand. Icebreaker Nature Lite size XS fit me sleekly, but because the waistband sits very low both front and back, the leggings feel like they might slip (though they do stay on). Comparing it to the Stoic Merino size XS, the Icebreaker XS waistband is noticeably smaller, not bigger. The slipping feeling is because of the low back rise. The Icebreaker Nature Lite size S is roughly equivalent to the Stoic Merino size XS. The waistbands are about the same circumference and are flexible, and both hit me slightly below the navel. Both are fitted in the legs, but with a little ruching because I'm petite. Tested side-by-side, the Icebreaker Nature Lite feel warmer to me. I'm keeping both the Nature Lite size S and Stoic size XS, for different purposes. I also tested Nau M2, but the size XS felt tight in the waist and crotch and the size S were baggy in the hips and legs, and they weren't as warm as the Icebreaker Nature Lite.

    Nice material, but other merino leggings are better

      I own three pairs of merino leggings: these, the Nau M2, and the stoic merino bottoms. Of the three pairs, these are my least favorite. While the leggings are merino and have all the standard powers of merino wool (stinkless, itchless, wicking, etc.), I think that other merino leggings are just better. When it comes to durability, warmth, comfort and general backcountry use the stoic merino leggings are by far superior. When it comes to stylishness, comfort, and day-to-day use, the Nau leggings win. The truth is these leggings are always in the process of falling off my behind, and require constant adjustments to stay in place. I could never go hiking in them. These leggings just don't compete with the other options that are out there.

      Sizing runs small: I am 5'6 130lbs, ordered a medium, and the leggings feel tight and oftentimes slide down.

      Great wool, dependable company

        Great material, but time for new colors. We want charcoal grey and we want a nice brown, for all those other times that don't need to be black. Black is business, professional, teacher. Brown is fun times, outdoor times. It's like wanting wool jeans. Too much black.

        Icebreaker 200 Leggings

          My only complaint is with the waist. I feel like these leggings are going to fall down. Other than that, they are great--true to size, don't stretch out and they keep my legs warm.

          Yes! It's true. I would wear these everyday if it weren't for the over-sized and non-elastic waist. They work fine under pants, but I can't wear them with skirts or as leggings on their own--they slide right down and I have to constantly pull them back up. And I never thought I had skinny hips.

          Comfortable

            I like these leggings; as other reviewers have mentioned they are slightly lower cut than some, but not too low, and the fabric is quite soft (and not scratchy). I am a somewhat curvey size 8, and I found that the size medium fit well in the hips but was just slightly too big in the waist (but not annoying enough to return). I bought a couple pairs of these, in both purple and black. The black pair is slightly smaller then the purple, especially noticeable in the leg circumference (much snugger fit on my legs). I don't know if this is true for all black pairs, or if it is just a QC issue.

            nice and long

              these are soft and comfortable, keeping my legs warm under skirts or motorcycle pants or as a long underwear layer when outdoors. the only problem I have with these leggings is that they don't work well with all my underpants - either the leggings slip, or the underpants do.

              all that said I'm pretty tall and these leggings go down to exactly the right spot on my ankle bone. they're lovely!

                Great tights, buy em

                  I like that they sit on my hips rather than up around my waist. Also the waistband is not binding or tight. The leggings are lightweight, which will be good for layering. Great mild and versatile color.

                  recommended

                    Great wool leggings. They fit well and are quite warm. And even though they'll be hidden they're pretty cute. I like that the fit isn't too tight at the waist or too high. Nor will they give you a draft if you bend over.

                    Are these leggings substantial enough to...

                    Are these leggings substantial enough to wear on their own without something else covering them? I'm looking for a pair of leggings to wear for Aerial Circus practice (requires durability, breathability, good range of motion and anti-stink properties), but would want something I could wear on its own.

                    I wear mine as both baselayer and leggings under long sweaters and tunics. The thing is, these aren't tight like traditional tights or leggings, so they do bag a little around the knees (no spandex in them). Other than that, I find them to be substantial enough to be worn on their own.

                    Best stick to Danskin. I wear/workout/run in their black cotton stretch 'compression' tights year round on a daily basis. 'Under Armour' also has cold weather and warm weather compression tights that are my other favs. Go ahead and wear the high waisted or french cut swimsuit or cheerleading bottoms over them so they will be forever secure and comfy in place. This combo makes your legs look trim and long and you will never have to hike up slipping tights. So annoying. Been doing this for a decade now.

                    do the icebreaker leggins have the fabric...

                    do the icebreaker leggins have the fabric pattern show on the top, bottom, all over?

                    I bought the black and the pattern is just at the bottom, near the ankle, on those. I have another Icebreaker Nature style legging that is pretty similar and the pattern on those goes a little farther up the leg, but it's definitely not an all-over pattern on either. These are awesome leggings!
