Icebreaker clothing is crafted using merino wool grown in New Zealand’s Southern Alps, where weather can be extreme. Unlike synthetic fabrics, Icebreaker merino wool is grown and field-tested in the mountains, rather than created in a lab. Engineered to perform in a variety of outdoor activities, Icebreaker clothing naturally regulates temperature, breathes to prevent clamminess, resists odor for weeks, and protects skin from the sun. Superfine merino wool is also much softer than traditional wool, so you’re never itchy or uncomfortable. ...

I do so love me some Icebreaker BL bottoms, and the Vertex is no exception to that. Soft, comfortable, and hold up well with wear, built for long term use. The inseam on size M is just a tad short for my 33" legs, but usually I'm layering these anyway so socks cover my ankles. Waistband is elastic, also holds its shape and stretch well--my only little complaint is that the waistband is kind of narrow and can dig in and create bulges if you, like me, don't have a perfectly toned midsection. But again, layering resolves those kinds of issues (as would crunches, I suppose). I'm 5'6" 125lb and size M fits just right, not super tight against the skin. Get 'em.
