Agree with others that the fabric on these boxers is the best. It. stays is place, is cool, dries quickly etc. However, the waistbands don't hold up very well. They turn into bacon and lose their elasticity pretty quickly. After two years, they won't stay up very well. I never put them in the dryer. Always hang dry. Its a shame because the fabric is bomber. If you could combine the ExOfficio fabric with the Patagonia waistband, their love child would be the perfect boxer.

This pant is exactly what I was looking for for backcountry skiing. Its a combination of water resistant areas for protection and fleece areas for breathability. I have pretty big thighs, glutes and calves compared to average mountain athlete. The cut of the pant is very slim, especially from the knees down. It was difficult to get the bottoms over my ski boots. Also the pants were so tight that my beacon barely fit in the pocket. I wound up returning these, but for a skinny dude, I think these would be great.

The fit is perfect for me. Not to tight, not too baggy. I have big glutes and quads and don’t fit into most slim cut touring pants.

I had the pants out last weekend in some early season powder and they were great. The venting zippers work well for skinning.

Have owned many Icebreaker shirts over the years and this is my favorite for warm weather activities. The material is softer and cooler than the 100% wool shirts. No stink after multiple wearings.

I have lots of wool icebreaker shirts which I like, so I thought I would give this new material a shakedown for extremely warm crossfit workouts (100 degrees plus). The material is definitely cooler. The shirt does not seem to fit quite as well, the collar doesn't seem to lay down well. But this material is cooler than the 100% wool shirts from icebreaker. It also seems like this material will last longer (all the wool shirts that I have eventually develop little holes in them both icebreaker and smartwool). Stink resistance seems to be the same. Overall, I really like it for very warm weather. Itchiness is about the same as wool. Fit is about the same as the icebreaker tech t lite shirts.

I really like these shorts. I have the convertible version, which I use for hiking and backpacking and these shorts are even better than the convertible shorts. They fit a little slimmer and are just the right length (just below my knee). The stretchy fabric is very comfortable. The fabric is a little warm but that is really the only negative for me. I wore them yesterday in 111 degree weather, so I guess they aren't too warm.
