    Redesign for the better

      I own the previous version of these thermals as well as the new redesigned version and think Patagonia did a great job on the update. Another reviewer did not approve of the new elastic waistband however i think it was a much needed addition. The previous version albeit a super warm thermal would constantly shift down and sag below my waist. Often times showing some lovely crack if I wasn’t careful! The new waistband addition was exactly what these needed to fit well under an alpine climbing pant, shell pant for skiing or anything else that you’re going to layer these under. They rest of the features really speak for themselves. They have a nice grid pattern which is both warm but simultaneously breathable. I’ve used these skiing, hiking and climbing big mountains like Rainier. They are perfect.

      terrible redesign

        I had the expedition weight capilene bottoms for years, super warm, great product. The replacement is called thermal weight, they are now high rise plus they have a super tight elastic band at the waist. What for? They are really uncomfortable, will have to cut them at the waist to make them work.

        I use them often, but expected better

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: Medium
        • Height: 5'8"
        • Weight: 120lbs

        I bought these because I am one of those people who are always cold on the ski mountain. I've tried so many thermals and decided to splurge on these hoping they would pull through. They are decently thin, but have a ribbed pattern in the material to help keep in the warmth. The only problem with that is in between the thicker ribbing it is thinner, and you can feel the air blow through them just when walking around. They proved to be a little warmer than all of my other thermals, but I expected better from Patagonia. I thought they would be toasty warm as soon I put them on. You know, the kind that make you over heat when you're putting your boots on before you get outside. But, they weren't. They're just decently warm, and for the price I'm not sure they're totally worth it. I hate to give a Patagonia an iffy review, but it's honest.

        Best thermal undies

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium bottoms
        • Height: 5'6"
        • Weight: 135lbs

        I was skeptical when I received these in the mail. They are so thin and kinda see-through. But wow are they warm! My hubby says I am cold blooded and that I need a heat source to maintain a normal temp. He isn't far off. I usually freeze in any sort of cold-ish weather like snowboarding, sledding, etc. Our latest trip to Colorado was mostly gorgeous weather but the last day was an 18 degree high! I bundled up in my new thermals and was good to go all day...even night boarding with moderate snowfall. They wicked the moisture away effectively, too! I wore them under my insulated boarding pants. I am a believer in Patagonia's thermal weight underwear! So glad I didn't return them.

        Great base layer

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Small
        • Height: 5'4"

        Just wore these on summit day on Mt. Kilimanjaro and they worked great. Kept me warm for the long up in the very cold.

        Warm and Comfy!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Small
        • Height: 5'4"
        • Weight: 130lbs

        Got these as a gift for my girlfriend and here is what she has to say:
        A size small fits slightly loose yet just tight enough (I typically wear a size 4 in pants). They’re comfortable and keep me nice and warm.

        Great!

        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: xs
        • Height: 5'10"
        • Weight: 125lbs

        This has been a great, warm base layer for the night and morning on camping trips. They comfortably and are a decent length for me which is hard to find since I am taller. Super light and compact for backpacking as well!

        Wife Approved

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Small
        • Height: 5'7"

        I bought these for my wife before a long weekend skiing near the end of last season. She typically runs cold, and never complained while wearing these. She wears a small in both Patagonia and North Face, and she likes how these fit.

        One thing she mentioned is they're a little see-through, so be careful wearing them on their own to the bar after a day on the mountain.

        Great!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: small
        • Height: 5'8"
        • Weight: 125lbs

        These thermal weight bottoms fit so beautifully. They feel so comfortable and I can wear them alone with the matching top around the house or for warmth outside on my daily walks. I believe Patagonia makes the best products as far as comfort, fit, and advanced material.

        Not as warm as I expected

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: True to size

        I was expecting these to be much thicker. They are as thin as tissue paper. I was hoping for something warmer than a typical base layer. I am returning these because I already have a base layer that is just as warm, but for half the price.

        Worth It's Weight in Gold

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Small
        • Height: 5'4"
        • Weight: 125lbs

        My go to baselayer for almost any condition. It's nice and fuzzy on the inside keeping you very toasty. There are grid like gaps between the fuzz so as soon as you get moving around it is extremely breathable. After wearing them all winter they also double for the rest of the year on those cool hikes, early morning camp coffee, or some warm leggings to throw on under casual or technical pants. Hands down my favorite baselayer by Patagonia or any other company.

        warmest layer

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

        I love patagonia's capilene and this weight provides enough comfort and warmth for even the coldest day. These are my go to layering for most action adventures.

        Ultimate Warmth

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Small
        • Height: 5'3"
        • Weight: 115lbs

        I gave these to my Fiancé for Christmas and she loves them. She says they are warm and fit true to size. I never have to worry about her getting cold with these as a base layer. She told me that they are her favorite thermals.

        Top of my list for baselayers!

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

        SIZE AND FIT: I'm 5' 4.75"€ and around 100 lbs. for the current season, have a petite frame, and tend to carry my weight in my bottom half as opposed to my torso, chest (33AA), and arms. (See my profile for full sizing info.) I chose to go with the XS in the thermal weight bottoms. I currently have the Patagonia Merino Midweight bottoms in XXS, and those fit me quite a bit better as a baselayer, but these thermal weight bottoms fit me pretty well, though are a little loose (i.e., not skin-tight). Base layers should be a truly slim fit so they can really perform their primary job--keeping you dry and warm--and I think these do fit true to size in Patagonia's slim fit. For me, since I'€™m about average height, they do run a little long. If your primary use for baselayers is skiing, I would recommend Patagonia's boot-length thermal weight bottoms and then pair them with their ski socks.

        PERFORMANCE: These things are super comfortable and breathable. In colder pursuits, these are perfect for wearing under ski pants, but would be a little bulky if you were trying to fit them underneath an everyday pant for walking around town, for instance. In that case, I would definitely go for the midweight baselayer as opposed to the thermal weights, but both have their place in the closet (or backpack!). The next-to-skin comfort on these is really great, and I prefer them over all baselayers in that arena. For me, I really think that merino edges out capilene in terms of odor control, but that is a very minor concern with these. The breathability and the built-in odor protection do a great job. In fact, I get away with wearing these day in and day out, and only wash them probably every five times I wear them for moderate-activity pursuits (though I’m waiting for colder temps to get a better idea and will update with any news). Finally, these move really well and are not constricting in the least; going along with that, they also move very well amongst other layers--I never feel any pull or tug against the midlayer, and that's important when you’re moving around a lot.

        BOTTOM LINE: In terms of comfort and breathability, these make it to the top of my list for baselayers. (The color is great, too!) And because the€™y're polyester, I'm really looking forward to their longevity. The 1/4-zip thermal weight capilene tops are some of my favorite pieces of the fall '15 line as well. These will be a great addition for walking the dog in cold temps, skiing, hiking in cold conditions, or even standing outside waiting for the bus.

        Top of my list for baselayers!

        Light and warm!

        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Small
        • Height: 5'5"
        • Weight: 120lbs

        I bought these tights for my girlfriend. She loves them! Comfortable and super warm. Perfect for a cold night camping, or a warmer base layer to wear under ski pants.
