Description

Active thermoregulation designed for stop-and-go outdoor athletes.

Wear the SmartWool Men's Midweight Bottom for stop-and-go aerobic activities or as an insulating base layer. This warm pant is ideal for situations where the weather and temperature fluctuate, like in alpine environments. SmartWool's porous natural fibers move moisture in vapor form, creating a dry layer of air around your body that encourages evaporative cooling; you stay drier and more comfortable throughout your alpine foray. By comparison, synthetics transport moisture after it condenses; you must be moving and visibly sweaty for moisture management to occur, which can lead to chills once you stop moving. SmartWool fiber is highly adaptable to a broad range of conditions; it keeps you warm when you rest and cool when your pulse and core temperature heat up. This naturally anti-microbial pant features a covered elastic waistband, a traditional fly, chafe-reducing flatlock seams, and an active fit that allows for bulk-free layering without inhibiting your freedom of movement.

Bomber base layer!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

In the winter I wear these constantly. On weekend trips I hardly take them off. Do your research, Merino Wool is the top dog of base layers. Keeps you warm, dry, and doesn't smell. Only complaint is they get frizzy if they come into contact with Velcro. KEEP VELCRO AWAY! Also I wish I had air dried mine from the start. Besides that PERFECT! Love wearing Smartwool base layers in my sleeping bag.

HI every one! I'm 180 CM 78KG, what size is good to me?

Best Answer Responded on

Large would be you best bet for a performance fit. XL if you like your base layer loose. The Smartwool size chart on this page has the specific measurements (even in cm) that you need to check.

are these a compression type pant?

No, this is just a base layer. A very good base layer.

Great!

These are really warm and not itchy at all (and I have that itch problem with some merino wools from icebreaker).... I have yet to test it outside, but think this is going to make the best thermal underwear I own.

Great for cold winter nights

I might just buy another pair of these. If I ever have to walk anywhere in winter or be at a bus-stop when it's close to zero I wear these under a pair of jeans and I'm toasty warm.

Good Stuff

Great Great material. I would order bootcut length next time thought since i mainly use them to ski...and also prob go a size smaller (I'm 5'11", 185lbs and went with L which are a little baggy).

Thanks!

You guys were the only place where I could find 100 percent wool in the size that I needed. My boyfriend is in the military and can only wear 100 percent wool! I ordered them and then mailed them to him and he loves them! he says they are great!
My order was shipped very quickly and communication was great! Awesome company and awesome product! Thanks again!

The Best

I have tried numerous brands of leggings and these are the best for keeping me warm, wicking moisture and if the temps warm I am not sweating badly. SmartWool is a company you can trust to make quality products that last.

160lbs 6'1 thinking about a medium???

Responded on

go for the large. mediums will sit a bit high on your calf

Responded on

if you're skinny, med will be a right but a little short bc you're tall. i would recomment a large.

Responded on

I agree with the others, start with a large.

I want to buy this. I am 5'8" at 150 lbs....

I want to buy this. I am 5'8" at 150 lbs. Shall I get the small? Thanks.

Responded on

It depends on how tight you want it. I'm 5'10", 167 lbs. I got the Large and it is fine for me. Not skin tight, just a little looseness. If I were your size, I would get the Medium.

Responded on

You need at least a Medium, the small will not be comfortable.

Responded on

5'6" 150lbs here. The small fits my frame, but runs a little long. At 5'8" a small may work well.

Not for tall skinny men

So first of all, I gave this three stars only because of the fit, not the quality. The quality of the product is great and I have these in women's. Re fit: maybe this is ok for normal sized people, but not my husband who normally wears trousers 32x34 and is 6'1 feet tall. Following the size chart for waist sizes, I ordered him a Medium, hoping the inseam would be closer to 33" than 30". When I got the product, the inseam was about 29"-30" - way too short, even if you stretch them out. This is strange, because all the reviews and packaging say they're made somewhat longer to account for shrinkage. Maybe I got a dud. Anyway, I just wish companies like Smartwool would take cue from other retailers, who have started making trousers / jeans in more waist-length combinations. And I wish Backcountry would carry some brand that does - surely some of people who buy from Backcountry are slimmer and taller than your average person. If anyone has any suggestions on base layers that are for skinny tall people, I would be grateful.

How tight do these run?

How tight do these run?

Responded on

These are a next to skin fit (NTS) and run pretty snug, not uncomfortably or restrictingly so, but in a good way (they fit well underneath lots of other layers). Think somewhere between Lycra and skinny jeans.

Responded on

If in doubt I would size up with these.

SmartWool NTS Midweight Bottom

This is a great midweight baselayer from SmartWool. I have had mine now for four years and have not been disappointed with it. I use this as my baselayer when my Capilene 2 is not adequate for the temperature. The wool is super smooth and causes no irritation. I am 6'1", 180 lbs and the large fits me very well. A great thing about wool is it keeps you warm when wet(and doesn't hold odor like synthetic).

Responded on

I would love to hear a comparison between the two- they are what I am considering buying currently. The capilene 2 seem to be warmer than they are rated based on the comments, but I want to have something sufficiently warm. I do already own a heavier baselayer for skiing/ the winter, but what would you suggest for 3-season backpacking?

Smart bottoms for boys only

I bought these for my young son, who borrows my women's wool midweight bottoms currently, so we are both already big fans of SMARTWOOL. Even though I bought these bottoms too big for him, he is looking forward to wearing his own men's bottoms equipped with a pocket for his plumbing needs.

Awesome base layer

I wear these under a basic shell pant and they are perfect from single digits to spring skiing. I’ve used synthetic base layers for years, but none of them have performed as well as SmartWool’s products. They regulate temperature well, the fit is true to the sizing, and stay comfy all day.

Shoot fer da stars!

Four stars?!? What?! These are the most comfortable long underwear available!! Yes, this is true, however they are just not as fitted as I would like/expect them to be.
The short of it (being as I am short on time) they are:
-warm!
-comfortable
-made from wool
-worth their weight in wool (gold)
-two legged

A+ would buy again!

Ultra Soft and Warm

These pants are really soft. I'm not great with wool, but these don't itch at all. I also find they wick moisture much better than my synthetics. The only problem: they're really warm. These would be great for snowboarding or skiing, but anything where you're moving alot (like when I go nordic skiing)and you'll heat up really fast. The lightweight pants would really be a better option for nordic/snowshoeing, etc...

Really Really warm

much more comfortable than my old capilenes and much warmer as well

I generally just save them for sleeping in camp b/c it hardly ever gets cold enough that I need to wear them when hiking.

Proven in Worst Conditions

The great thing about wool is it keeps you warm even when wet. As a Search and Rescue team member, I use smartwool baselayer whenever I go on a cold weather mission. They are warm, comfortable and not too constricting. Highly recommend them.

Switching to Capilene

First let me say, I really like a lot about SmartWool and its products. I have relied on it as my primary baselayer in cool and cold weather for alpine skiing, xc skiing, running, etc. and it has performed extremely well. However, I started noticing small holes appearing in all four of my SmartWool baselayers (tops and bottoms) after running them through the washer/dryer on delicate/low heat. Since discovering the holes I've started air drying them after running them through the wash, however this level of care is a little hit higher than I would prefer for a baselayer. I have decided to switch over to Capilene as I would prefer a more easy care garment.

Responded on

Capilene requires more care. You can toss these in the washer and dryer no problem. Capilene is more prone to melting/burning, shouldn't be dried in the dryer, and tends to pill with wear and become rough. I also find capilene traps in smells, and needs frequent washing. I've worn it all, swear by wool.

Responded on

i agree with ryan 110%. wool is the way to go, synthetics are stinky, chafey, balley, and they do not perform nearly as well. im a veteran ice climber who has tried every single layering system to gain an advantage humanly possible.......go organic! wool wool wool.
