CHRISTIAN D.wrote a review of Northern Playground Ziplongs 3/4 Wool Pant - Men's on December 17, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I first came across these by accident while shopping for something else in Olso. We had recently returned from a trip to one of the Fjords where I tried to get my base layer on after being forced to remove the pants I was wearing. The weather had turned quickly and I went from pretty pretty warm and comfortable to chilly pretty quick. Needless to say, this did not work out well for me. I ended up shoeless, pantless and freezing for way too long. This when I saw the zip offs I was already prepared for the purchase. Putting them on just to things to another level entirely. They were easy to zip on/off and they were incredibly comfortable. I ended up using them on my flight home because (let’s say) I wanted a little freedom on my long flight. Once at a reasonable height, I went to he bathroom, unzipped and moved about the cabin - joyously unconstrained. The flexibility became extremely useful. In the us in particular one finds oneself moving from a very cold climate into a very warm building. Being able to remove a nice piece of wool without having to get completely undressed is extremely helpful. Preparing to venture out, a quick zip and you are ready to venture out into the world. Now, I am sure that this is not what the brilliant creator of this product had in mind when they came up with the product (having just met him actually I know this is true). Regardless, the zip ons/offs have a million and one applications and every one will make life just that much more comfortable. Turns out that they keep innovating too. I own like 5 different things from them now - all differently brilliant as well as comfortable. And for the record, I do not own stock in the company or work for them. I’m just someone trying to live life as comfortable and conveniently as possible for a reasonable price.
