From the ground up.
Whether you're out for a casual Saturday morning tour through the rolling hills behind your cabin or you're hitting the track for a few early morning training laps, your Bjorn Daehlie Men's Airnet Pants will be your go to baselayer. Thanks to the merino wool construction, these tights are warm and insulating during times of low activity and wick moisture to keep you dry when you take it up a notch.

- Q & A
Function over fashion
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
- Height: 5'10"
- Weight: 165lbs
get over it. These are meshy in areas. but the function well outweighs the fashion. Take care washing and use the included garment bag. These are made for high aerobic pursuits in cold climates. Think XC in the dark after work, or a jog at 5am before the sun comes up. Throw these under your xc or run pants and be ready for start crushing and not freeze your self when the sweat starts to accumulate. The mesh traps air to keep you regulated when you slow down a touch, and then releases air when you speed up the heat production. Truly specific to high aerobic output in cold temps. Not for lounging around the house!!!!
Bit interesting Of a Cut
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Size Bought: Medium
- Height: 5'11"
- Weight: 175lbs
I got some Bjorn Daehlie gear for winter training in Salt Lake City, including these. I spend my time running and road riding to cross train as well as backcountry skiing. I'm 5'11" and 175lbs with a 32" inseam and waist and got the size medium. It fits true to size, but the cut of the pants is a bit interesting.
I just want to make it clear what you're buying - the mesh is pretty much see through and the way these pants are designed ends up being pretty specific to their intended use, that being high aerobic activity. With that said they are very form fitting, though not uncomfortable. I will say that I'm not willing to post a photo of myself wearing them, but the merino mesh is very much see through.
If you plan on doing a seriously high intensity aerobic activity and plan on wearing an outer layer over it, I could see these being a great option. Not sure these would be the first base layer option I'd recommend to most people unless you plan on mostly nordic skiing with it.
