This piece is truly ground breaking. Under a wind proof layer on those days when it's warm, breezy and possibly wet,. Or under a race top when you know you are going to need to keep the sweat from building up to maintain the proper temp. This thing is amazing. Yes, it's like fishnet stockings for your body, but there is a modesty panel on the chest for when you open up the zip on your rain jacket, and let's be honest, if you take your game seriously enough to invest in the right base layers, you also pack a shirt to change into right after your interval day or race. I have washed mine in the included garment bag, using Toko's wool care and had zero unwanted warping, snagging or shrinking.(hang dry) The box even recommends not washing every time, which I tested, and can report no stink. Get this and change your thinking on base layers for the modern 40 degree low temp winter we are having...

I got some Bjorn Daehlie gear for winter training in Salt Lake City, including this. I spend my time running and road riding to cross train as well as backcountry skiing. I'm 5'11" and 175lbs and got a size medium. It fits true to size. The cut of the top 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. Its a bit of a crop top with merno mesh being pretty snug around the bell. 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, the product photos show this.
If you plan on doing a seriously high intensity aerobic activity and plan on wearing an outer layer, 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.
