Solid Base layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 6"
    Weight: 130 lbs
    Size Purchased: small

This pants fit me great, snug fit so they don't bunch up like other base layers do. I like the stripped pattern and have worn them on their own on occasion. Stays warm and dry

not a good fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

Sadly, I have to return these. They are very low waisted which causes the back to slide way down whenever you bend. Other than that they fit good and are cute. Just won't work for me.

Kept Me Warm.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I wear these all the time under my ski pants. They keep me warm without getting overheated. I took them to NZ for a backpacking trip and they were great during the day but not very comfortable at night. The material isn't as stretchy like some other baselayers.

Lightweight Layer

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought these as a baselayer for my seasonal job in Alaska. Worked okay for mild nights, but not enough for seriously cold weather. Was expecting something more along the lines of Smartwool or fleece-lined, but this is pretty much just a lightweight legging. Good fit though, nice seaming and good length for my petite legs.

foundation for warmth

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got these for my Mom as a gift so that she could run/hike during the winter. She has a tendency to be cold ALL THE TIME! But when she was wearing these bottoms she had to leave the house or car to get into the weather! Her feedback was a great snug fit without being too tight and very warm. A great base-layer for many applications.

Great bottoms!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've been incredibly happy with these bottoms. I've used them on tours and days at the resorts under my three-layer shells and they've performed wonderfully. On the coldest days I continue to stay warm (and dry).

These pants are structured - which is a great improvement over most long john pants. I'm 5'10" and do not have the problems mentioned below - the pants go to my ankles and fit very well (no bunching in my snowboard boots)! I find that the fit is very nice. I too have an athletic build and while they are snug on my thighs and calves, I don't feel that they are too tight or uncomfortable.

On top of all of this I have to add that they are super cute as well. I bought the red striped pants I've even worn them out on their own after a wet day on the mountain.

Great bottoms, nice and cozy.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

For the most part these bottoms fit pretty well. I'm an athletic girl so I have bigger thigh muscles so the legs fit snug and the waist is loose. And, like a lot of base layers, these are cut more for short stick leg girls. I wear them snowboarding so I don't mind that they are a little short (I'm 5'6"). I don't like them bunching up on my ankles in my boots so they hit in the right spot.

About those leg muscles....

Very warm, very comfortable, glad I had them when I got stranded in Antarctica for 5 days longer than planned. However, they're just not really meant for athletic girls. Or tall girls. As with most long-johns, they don't go all the way down to my ankles (I'm 5'10") and they are tight through the thighs and around the calves, but loose on the hips.
