Reviewed by Jim the Hunter from Kansas on Tuesday, March 19, 2013Nice light weight merino wool bottoms. Legs are a snug fit. Ibex sizes their items very small. Check their size chart..
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tracker from SW Oregon on Friday, February 8, 2013For decades I have sought light weight merino wool tops and bottoms as it is just the best material for a base layer. Polyesters smell bad after half a day wear and do not feel comfortable.Silk is not as good as merino wool for comfort and merino breathes better and dries faster than silk. The only problem I have with these is I bought a 2XL because of prior experience with merino shrinkage. The label says "MS" and I am not sure why- Misses size? I am 6 foot and weigh 170 and they fit perfectly and did not shrink with warm wash and warm dry cycles.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by WilliamInNashville from Nashville, TN on Saturday, January 26, 2013I have so much Ibex gear...and the majority of their products are manufactured here in the US. I didn't notice (but it was posted, clear as day) that these were mfg'd. in Fiji. I'll live with them; no major offense.
Bottom line; they're a decent base layer...not what one would call 'durable' - they are fairly thin; although I have not had any issues with them getting runs or holes in them. I'd probably say, if you're going to be wearing them under heavy workwear/working conditions - I'd probably go with something a bit more substantial.
