I'm 5'2" 115 lbs and ordered an XS. When I put these pants on they fit, but there was very little stretch / give to them. They felt super stiff, which is not what I was looking for as a base layer for skiing. I had also purchased the Burton Midweight Base layer Bottoms and when I tried those on, they were significantly cozier. I have exchanged the Patagonia base layer for another pair of the Burton ones.

Great Baselayer!

generally wear a small or medium. Tried the medium and they fit but were baggy. Going to try the small. Very soft, warm, and comfortable!

These are fantastic. So comfortable, so breathable, and cute too. Perfect base layer for skiing... or just a cute legging for around town.

Bought these for mom when she wanted to start skiing and I think she likes the base layers more than skiing! Wears them all the time now, around the house, going for walks or hiking, or during cold nights. Not too tight, but not too loose either; mom loves them.

This product fits true to size in medium for my 5’5.5” frame with 41 in hips and 29 in waist. Nice rise, not low in back like an Icebreaker product I tried. I have not used the base layer yet so can’t comment on warmth. My rating is based on fit and comfort.

I recently wore these for a long day of alpine climbing and they worked perfectly. They kept me warm in the morning when it was cold and windy, but were breathable enough to keep me cool when I started to work up a sweat! Not only do these pants keep you just the right temperature, but they fit so comfortably. The waist band is nice and big and the slim fit works nicely under a variety of other pants. Would definitely recommend!

I got these as a gift and love to wear them as a base layer during the winter. I walk around the city a lot and I find them very comfortable. They are soft and not too tight. They are easy to wear with other clothes like jeans or sportswear without feeling heavy or restricting your movement. I find them pretty warm for temperatures around 10-30 degrees.

I bought these to wear as a baselayer while skiing. I find that they are pretty warm and comfortable. They are loser fitting which is nice if you don't like skin tight baselayers. Would recommend.

I these because they are not skin tight like most leggings. They are super comfy and warm for my purposes (sleeping in the desert in winter).

I bought this for my mother who complains of being cold often. I have used capilene and love that it won't cook you indoors, but really helps regulate your temperature and stay warmer. Feels really good on the skin and won't chafe or pull hairs.

These are nice and warm but a little bit on the itchy side for a synthetic baselayer. I am hoping they will get better with washing. Sizing is okay, a little tight in the waistband and loose everywhere else.

I got this baselayer after figuring out that I react poorly to merino wool. These bottoms fit just right, are a little looser than leggings and are smooth to the touch, so I don't get itchy when I wear them. They are so smooth, that they fit on top of another pair of leggings for really brutal ski days or night skiing. Just what I was looking for.

I got these to use as a base layer and for skiing this season. They are super comfy and warm. The fit is really nice and the waist goes up a little higher which is helpful because they don't slip down with lots of activity. The colors are also super fun! They seem to be high quality and I am hoping they will last for many years to come.

Pulling these out of the box, you wouldn't expect them to be as warm as they are. They feel very thin, but Polartec fibers do a heck of job giving you that extra boost of insulation. My one and only gripe (which I admit is petty) is that they're kind of baggy. I sometimes like to wear my long-underwear as leggings at the bar for apres, but these guys make me look kind of frumpy. It is my fault for not looking at the fit (which is slim) and assuming that it would be form-fitting. But, it's definitely not worth returning. They're way too warm for that petty nonsense.

Good stuff!

True to size, comfortable. Warm in 15 degree F hiking conditions. No drying shrinkage. No chafing and they wick like a champ.

>Rating:

Can these be worn alone? i.e. not as a base layer

Hey there Janellle! This can be worn by itself but it is a bit baggier and less flattering! These won't fit just like leggings but will be more lose in the knees and thigh area!

My girlfriend is 6'3" around this base layer fit her? She is typically in size 14 yoga pants, she can get in size 12 but feels they are to tight.
