Nathanwrote a review of Smartwool Merino 250 Bottom - Men's on November 9, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
As the title says, fits well.

Really enjoy the high neck on this, cuts down on the draft. Item is soft and comfortable. Keeps me warm
Love the thumb holes, and fit of this hoody. Great mid layer without a lot of bulk.
Have used in several showers/rain storms now, and every time this jacket wets out within half an hour. It does block the wind rather well in cold and snowy weather though. The draw string on the hood has already broken and pulled loose on one side, so when i cinch it down it is only affecting half the hood.
Works great in cold weather. Ordered a size up because most lined pants i have seem to run small, was not necessary.
Broke these over the last week doing stage hand work. Comfortable out of the box, bought a 1/2 larger than normal due to reviews, but feel my normal size would have been fine. Not sure the quicklace system saves any time, but it keeps the shoes tight, and there are no pesky laces to come lose and trip you up. They run a bit warm in high heat, but i will get plenty of use out of the waterproof feature.
I have a hard time finding shorts that hang below my knees, these do the trick fantastically. Usually wear 38 waist, and these were a bit more snug than i like, but will keep them for work shorts. The 40 in fit great. will be getting more of these down the road. Extremely comfortable to wear at work and casually.
Works great, puts out some serious heat. Minus one star because the latches on the top to keep the lid closed barely line up with their counterparts on the bottom. For the price this thing should come out of the box perfect.
Sweet little lantern that puts out a great amount of light. Charge lasted the entirety of my most recent camping trip. (3 nights)
These shoes drain water great, after they were wet, they didn't make my feet feel clammy or uncomfortable. Felt confident walking around on rocks above and below water. No smell after being wet in the back of my truck for 2 1/2 days (truck bed was covered), but due to rain was unable to dry them out. Left out in the sun for a few hours on returning home and they were mostly dry.
Blocks wind, shed a decent amount of rain without soaking through. wish it came in xxl, the xl is a bit tight in the shoulders on my frame.
These have a comfortable fit, and stay in place with lots of movement. They do a great job at keeping dry when conditions cause you to sweat. Only negative is the price, although they do seem to be worth the premium.
Bought these for work (landscaping) Have worn them every day to work for about a month now. I sweat a lot, temps this summer have been high 80s to high 90s with 60 to 90 % humidity most days. Though i can tell the pants get wet they dry extremely fast, if i take a break or go to lunch, they are usually dry by the time its over. As long as its not a downpour, they still feel comfortable damp, and I cant really tell that they are wet.
Was worried about the durability of these pants due to the lightweight material, but they seem to be holding up quite well so far.
Not sure i would chance a 36, but there is plenty of room in the 38 waist, and the legs have a bit extra material at the bottom, but this doesn't bother me.
