  • Form fit brings the fabric close to your skin for efficient breathability and insulation while the natural rise boosts coverage
  • Flatlock seams help prevent chafing
  • Merino-covered elastic waistband secures the bottom as you get gnarly on or off the hill
  • Traditional fly lets you easily relieve yourself

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

I wore these all season and they lasted and felt amazing! Plus they are sexy to walk around in! Soft, like having pants made of kittens! They kept me warm and dry! Don't hold odor! The smartness of this product allows it to contour your body like it knows you wish you could grow a pelt. I use to swear buy all that technical base layer stuff. But these have changed my mind. Well worth the money! When you wear this you're like a Viking getting ready to conquer your mountain!

The king of baselayers

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

So yeah, a little dramatic...but really, what is better than covering your body in warm, soft, comfy goodness that is merino wool? Despite the hits to the bank account, I consider every purchase of Smartwool products a 'smart' (lame pun intended) and satisfying venture. The material is tough yet soft, the seams/sewing are robust and non-intrusive, and the fit is always right on. Never had a problem with the product losing its elasticity in any area. I bought the bottoms here on sale and have noticed a few slight changes from the pair I bought 3 years ago (and are still just like new despite constant abuse), namely the elastic around the leg hem being relatively looser, and the waist and leg hem being a wider, flatter hem. These are not dings, just differences. Regardless of the vintage, the material breathes, warms, and wicks like a champ. You really can't go wrong with Smartwool

Warm and super comfy!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

They seem great so far! Very comfortable and not itchy. Also a good fit. I'm 6'2'' and 165lbs (skinny) and the large fits great.

This is the only base layer I use when I ski.I sweat a lot and it is the only thing I have found that keeps me dry which is critical in the cold.

Dad is a fan

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

I bought these for my dad who lives in China and works every day in a factory that isn't very well insulated or heated. It gets pretty cold up there and my dad needed long johns to wear around the house and at work. He asked me to get the ones from Walmart that he used to wear while he was in FL (lol) and I decided to get him those and a couple of these. Needless to say he threw away the Walmart ones in a couple of weeks and has asked me to buy another pair of the Smartwool bottom's.

Super Warm

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Super warm tights for cold weather use. Form fitting and with a athletic cut, works really good as a layering system or solo. They loosened up after 3 months of daily use but regardless they perform really well.

Keeps the cold out

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have worked outside for the past 10 years in the military and have struggled to stay warm with military issue gear in the winter. These are by far THE BEST I've ever had to keep warm. They are super soft and comfortable, thin enough to not bunch in my boots, and they keep me warm enough in freezing conditions. I can't wait to use them on my alpine climbs this winter!!!
