Description

Warm enough for late winter and early spring, but light enough to prevent overheating.

If spring hasn’t quite set in, you’ll appreciate the breathability and warmth that comes from the extremely lightweight Stoic Women’s Merino Full-Length Bottom. Not only warm, the natural merino wool fibers also resist odor and evaporate moisture as you sweat. The Y-Elastic stitch technique makes a smooth, extremely comfortable seam at the waist, which means less discomfort when you wear a pack

COMFY AND WARM

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 5' 6"
    Weight: 145 lbs
    Size Purchased: M

I bought this because it was on sale and a good product, from other reviews. I am so glad I bought these!! really thin, fit under my jeans when off the mountain. I'm 5'6

Super comfy

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 140 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

I got these as my RTW trip leggings/sleep bottoms/long underwear. Ordered L since that's all they had in black.
They looked more technical in the pics and I was worried about the wide waistband, but it's really really comfy. Surprised a large fits me well but I guess I prefer things not to be super tight.
Length is perfect for me as I have 32" inseam.

what soap or cleanser do I use to clean these

Responded on

Nikwax wool wash or baselayer wash is what I usually use, but if you check the label it will usually give more specific instructions on washing the garment.

Lightweight Warmth

These are an awesome merino layer! I wear them by themselves casually as a pair of leggings, as well as a layer up for skiing. My snowpants are not insulated, only fleece-lined through the bum, and these make for a perfect pairing. They are not very thick, but are still toasty. I overheat easily, so these are quite perfect- breath well, wick moisture, and help to keep me warm on the cold days.
As far as fit goes, I am 5'2 120lbs and I picked up the Small. They are long on me, but I make them work. Throughout the waist they are a tad large- not super tight, but they do stay in place. They are slim through the legs, but not skintight. Definitely recommend!

Very light weight, but warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I bought these for a snow boarding trip where the forecast was below 0. They kept me plenty warm with just a pair of insulated snow pants over them. They're very lightweight and feel a bit on the delicate side, but I haven't had any tears yet.

They're pretty thin and a little see-through if you intend to wear them as an outerlayer, you'll need a tunic or skirt over them. They also run a bit large, the XS are pretty long and a bit loose on me (5"2, 105lbs) but it's not a problem.

What is the fabric content of these skivvies?

Fit wonderfully for a tall gal

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

I bought these for my 5'11" friend who always struggles to find (any) pants that will fit in length and these made the cut! She purchased these in size medium. They fit great and stretch to fit around her booty as well! Highly recommended!

Favorite base layer pants!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Super warm and comfy. These are my new favorite pants for winter climbing, camping, or just lounging around when I'm cold. I'm 5'6 and 130 and ordered a size small which is PERFECT. They do run a tiny bit larger than other brands (smartwool) but I prefer this because they never feel tight around the waist. Also, they are definitely long and will scrunch up a bit around the ankle but that is so much better than being too short.

Responded on

If I'm 5'6" and 118, would you recommend an XS or would the S fit?

Responded on

I have fairly muscular legs and wide hips but a smallish waist (25-26") and I know that I wouldn't be comfortable in an XS. The waistband sits lower on the hips and I hate when elastic bands create muffin-top. But if you have slim legs and narrow hips I would go with an XS. Hope this helps!

So Warm!

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

By far, my most worn thermals. Breathable, warm, and easy to move in. Even on warm spring days these are my go to thermals, as they are warm but not too warm wear you feel you have just too much on.

Stoic Merino bottoms (200)

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Purchased on clearance along with a couple different wool top base layers and worn one season. I ordered a medium which was slightly large (I am 5ft 10 in, 140 lbs). Since they were on clearance, smalls were not available. I loved the long length, comfort, and wool material. I washed in cold water and hung to dry every few uses. I LOVED them and was ready to order more. Then, I got a run in one leg. I thought i snagged it with a nail, so resolved to be more careful. Then, it started ripping in other spots when pulling up. I am so disappointed that these have worn so quickly - it's almost like they are dry-rotting; I have 20-year old Columbia long johns in better condition. Will have to try another brand in the future. Just glad I didn't pay full price for these!

Nice red color, but runs large

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

I ordered these in the Oxblood color, size large (I wear a large in Patagonia, The North Face, & Icebreaker leggings). The color was a really pretty red, but they were so big! The waistband fit ok but the thighs and knees were baggy. By the time I went back to order a medium in the oxblood color, they were gone. Shucks.

Very long & not the quality expected

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I'm not tall, but at 5'2" size medium is way too long. Regardless I've been making them work until today when I punched a hole right through them just by pulling them up - which has to be done all the time. I was expecting better quality and will invest in different brands of merino products next time.

<3 Perfect Fit & Perfectly Warm <3

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

Bought in 2012, so mine are a year old & still like new.
I wear these under anything - except skinny jeans. They are not bulky, yet they are warm; they do not cause overheating when I am inside or in a car. I have often worn them under Gap or White House Black Market Blanc slim jean with absolutely no bunching, twisting, pinching, folding, riding up - nothing uncomfortable. In fact, I often forget that I am wearing them. I haven't worn my sweat inducing Land's End silk long underwear since I got these. I have happily divested myself of all of cotton & other long underwear.
I wash them after each wear in the washing machine w/ Tide & anything dark other than jeans then hang them to dry. They have accidentally been machine dried once or twice to my horror, however they barely shrunk!
One of my favorite aspects is the length: they are long enough to keep over my heels as I put on my outer pants & then slip up under the pant leg.
These are my most beloved winter staple.

Lifesaver for a busy mom

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

These are the greatest thing in my wardrobe; I now own three black pairs, plus grey and red, because I wear them almost daily. I don't use them as a technical baselayer, though I'm sure they'd be great for that. I wear them as tights with dresses and boots. I go to grad school full time, I have two little kids, and I live in the northeast where it's cold -- these things are a time-saving wardrobe lifesaver. They do run large; I have a 33" waist and the larges gape at the waist for me. Also, I'm 5'8" and I have to fold up the cuff a good 3"; they're nice and long. They are soft, they keep their shape after (many) consecutive days of wear, and they are warm enough outdoors without being too hot indoors. They wash and hang dry beautifully and don't run or tear. I only wish they came in more colors.

versatile

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

These are pretty nice, a bit high in the waist, but overall I am pleased. used them skiing in the winter and thy double as running tights.
I am 5'7" and 118 lbs with a 32 inseam, small fits good.

Great base layer indoors or out

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

I am 5.3" and about 112 lbs, and I am always cold. My husband got me a pair with the top for Christmas, and I just got my second pair in a size small. I did run them through the dryer once (but do not do that with the matching top).The pants are a little bit long, but that is just fine with me. I wear them hiking in the snow with a little bit covering the bottom of my heel and pull a warm sock on. No snow hitting my ankles no matter how deep it is. The pants are very comfortable and warm. The waistband is extremely comfortable and never rolls. I have also worn these under leggings, with a dress, and I have used them as pajama bottoms! My husband also got me a silk base layer, but the Stoics are by far my favorite. I love them!

Great fit, but not worth the price

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

I've reduced my star rating because I don't believe these are worth anywhere near $75. That said, I'm not a big fan of waistbands, especially on leggings. I find them tight and restricting and rarely find a pair of leggings that I can tolerate. I'm not a large woman (5'6" 137lbs) and I'm fit, but my hips tend to flow over them regardless of what size I get. But these are amazingly comfy and flattering! That said, here are a few more things that may help you decide:

1) $75 is outrageously expensive for these. $40-45 would be the ideal price. They're very comfy and flattering, but they tear easily and don't last very long. If you're looking for something durable, this isn't the best choice.

2) I really wish they had more pairs in black! Occasionally, they'll have a black pair available, but it's pretty rare.

3) They seem to run a size large. I usually wear mediums, but I need a small in these, or they get too loose by the end of the day.

4) I use these as an extra layer in 30-40 degree (F) weather and they're perfect for that.

So, overall, if you're looking for a flattering, moderately comfortable (they can be a bit itchy at times) base layer, I would definitely recommend these, provided you have disposable income (which, let's face it - most of us don't these days).

Nice Fabric; Not a Good Fit for Me

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I'm 5' 6" 120 lbs with a small waist and a round full bottom. I found the seam on the backside chaffing. The garment wasn't too tight. The waist was too loose and drooped and puckered in the back. Walking around the house, trying to get a sense of these, they kept threatening to scoot down too low in the back. The colors were really pretty. The fabric is not as soft and resilient as the Smartwools or Ice Breakers (even in their lighter weight fabrics), but had they fit, the price would have been right!

Bang for you buck!

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

I will start out by saying these are not as soft or nice feeling as say Smartwool or Icebreaker, but I got them because they are way less expensive. They are a great layer for the price! They did feel a bit scratchy when I first got them but after a few washes and wears, they softened up. The thing I like most about them is the wide waist band, it keeps your hips from getting sore with too many layers with tight waist bands. I should mention as well that they are actually 95% merino wool and 5% spandex.

So hot

  • Gender: Female

These base layer bottoms are great. The thick elastic waistband keeps them in place throughout a day of skiing or playing outside. They seem to run a little big ? I threw them in the dryer to shrink them a bit, but they stretched out again by the end of the day.
