I have tried them all...everything from calida (swiss company, too thin, too much lace and poor fit), medima (germany, warm but a bit on the shorter side), to smartwool (US brand, too thick and smells funny), and Ivanhoe is by far the most comfortable, the most lightweight, hypoallergenic (good for ...

Searched and searched for an warm undergarment for the legs. Being a tall 5'8" woman I had resorted to cold calves (when women's were too short) and using tall socks or men's (with unneeded fabric in the front) for years. Finally a pair that is just right. Seem to run true to size and the perfect weight for under my clothing. Thank you, thank you for not leaving the tall woman without.

I ordered a small- 5'6 125 lbs. And these were too big for my liking. I prefer tight layering pants. The fabric felt nice- maybe a tad ichy compared to other brands. If you don't mind baggy they seem like they would provide a nice warm layer. Also the waist elastic was fairly tight for the baggy bottom part. I sent these back.

I bought these bottoms to use when I walk my dogs outside in cold weather. I really like these. I like how they stay around the ankles and do not ride up. I've used them in very cold (32 degrees) and very windy weather under sweatpants. They're great and kept me warm. I can also wear them under my jeans. Highly recommend them.

I admit: I got caught up in the european ski bunny image and pictured myself toasty warm and zipping down the alps. Alas, it was not to be. These are an average baselayer at best. They are quite thin and see-through. The front and back are cut the same, so the waist comes high in front but dips in back due to junk in the trunk-- and my trunk is fairly small!! but they were not very stretchy at all and if they do stretch out, i don't think they'd bounce back to shape. I found these to be itchier and rougher feeling than my other merino brands. I'm normally a medium, but ordered a large and i would not want them any smaller in the hips/thigh/waist, but the legs were a bit baggy. the length was fabulous though-- so if you're tall and just want some longjohns to wear under jeans, these are it.
These would work as they are wool and will dry quickly and pull moisture out. They are a lightweight layer so it will depend on how cold of conditions you'd be out in and how thick the wet suit is.

Depending on conditions they may be warm enough. But they are scratchier than other wool base layers, so you might not enjoy that. Also - these have a very low rise, and are not ample in the rear, so you might feel a little constricted. I don't recommend these.
