Odd fit and not that comfortable.
I really wanted to like these tights; compared to some of the other options in the "heavyweight long undies" column, these are not too expensive. Unfortunately, these do not live up to what I am seeking. For one, the fit is weird (looks like Aaron Martin's review tells of a similar experience); if I bend down or squat, the backside of the tight is pulled down to reveal my butt crack. I end up having to pull them back up or it is rather uncomfortable. Also, I find these tights to be rather itchy (it's been some time since I last bought a piece of technical clothing that itched); most of the time I tend to not notice that, but it can be uncomfortable when I have a little sweat going from hiking or skinning around. Lastly- these guys are not that warm...not sure I would place them in the heavyweight category. Ultimately I would not recommend this tight to a friend of mine.
If you are even remotely fit, these will not fit. Zero stretch, the legs are so tight I can barely pull them all the way up. I did get them all the way on and the waist was loose and when I raised my leg it pulled them down. To recap, if you have skinny legs and a bigger ass and gut, they may work.
