I just received these in the mail, top and bottom, and wanted to try them on and give a review.

I am about 6' or 182cm and 170lbs or 77kgs. I have a 33 inch waist, 41 inch chest, athletic build.

The fabric and seam quality look and feel great. It looks like it should hold up for a while and not break down so easily.

The fit is "FITTED" This thing is snug! I ordered LARGE and wear a medium in every other base layer. It would be wise to order one size up than what you usually wear or I imagine it would be very tight and probably unwearable.

For the bottoms, with the crotch seams seated up in my crotch as comfortable normal wear with the waist band sits above my hips in my waist, where it should, and the ankle seams comfortably reach down to the bottom of my ankles with no bunching. The waist band is not overtight and rides comfortably where it should. The only negative is the fabric feels a bit tight around my upper calves. It is a snug fit with no looseness anywhere. So overall, it wears like it's designed. I have yet tested it in the weather so can't attest to it's warmth.

Conclusion:
ORDER ONE SIZE UP than what you usually wear.
Buy an insulation layer to wear over this garment.

I also reviewed the top so check it out. Have fun.

The top fits comfortably. It is snug all around and I can tuck it into the bottoms if wanted. So length is sufficient too. The cuffs reach just past my wrist and rest there no matter what movement. Two down points are the seams in the arm pits which I can notice right now. They wrap down from the shoulder and arm and meet in the middle of the armpit then continue down the side. I don't know how to describe it. Maybe a small bunching or tightness in my armpit just off the side of my pec. The other issue is that my forearms feel pretty tight up my elbow. Other than that these garments seem like they would work fine for any activity. Maybe just some slight discomfort that you could probably ignore when you're moving and having fun.

So in conclusion:
ORDER ONE SIZE UP
and don't forget your insulation layer!
