Nice snug fit, super soft inside. And not just for men - I'm female, 5'10", generally wear a size 16 and the large fits perfectly. They don't sag, like my last pair (Lowe Alpine). Great on their own with a long tunic top, great as a base layer. And they're made in the USA, I'm trying to buy as mu...

I sent for these for my boyfriend, who is a bow hunter and spends hours sitting up in his tree stand. He just loves them--says for the first time ever he was warm all day. I intend to get him another pair, and some for myself, too. I have bought many things from Sierra Trading Post, and have never been disappointed--the prices are great and so is the service--everything arrives really fast. I recommend you to every outdoor person I know.

These things are incredibly soft, super thick, and warm! As soon as you slip one leg into them, you can't help but say..."AHHHHHH!" in a good way! Bought them for my husband and three sons but I did try them on. Super price at approx. $15 each when I bought them. Like others have said, they do run small. My husband and sons are all about the same size (which makes it easy for sharing clothes!) at 5'8" approx. 150lbs. and they all preferred the size LARGE. The MED was wearable, but tight. For them, the LARGE was better - they like a little bit of "give" in the legs - not the skin tight base layer fit that you have to really "pull on". Like other have said as well, the waist is ridiculously high, but who cares - you just fold down the top of them. No one will see it anyway. No fly as well like others have mentioned, but my family didn't seem to care about that at all and were not sure why others thought that was that big a deal - their running tights, sweatpants, etc. don't have a fly so they didn't seem to know why I asked them if they cared that these didn't ...Not sure how they will hold up to a day out in the cold, as they just tried them on so far. They will most likely be plenty warm, but thinking it is possible that they might not breath well....we shall see...

This pair of Porlartec stretch bottoms are the best fitting and best feeling base layer pants I've ever had. I just put them on for the first time and the high quality of their design is evident immediately. I have not worn them into the cold yet, but those who have mention how they do keep you warm. I am looking forward to using these under my Gortex bibs while hiking in the cold, snowy (and hopefully NOT!) wet Andes Mountains in Patagonia later this year. I highly recommend these!
Yes, these base layers are different than any I've ever seen! When I got them out of the box, I thought these are not what I was looking for & my husband said the same thing. They looked like sweat pants, very thick & looked baggy not tight fitting. I said, "well try them on any way!" He couldn't believe how wonderful they were. They are tight fitting, so warm & so comfortable! He looks forward to wearing them when the cold gets here! I highly recommend these to keep you warm & very comfortable.
Has not to date on the 3 pairs that we use! Brendan reports that these are the best long underwear ever.

I have not taken them out of the package, because they appear to be so thick that I'm sure they will be too warm. I had a different impression of how thick they were from the photos. But the price was so appealing that I can't even justify sending them back. Maybe I will pass them on to a family member who skis. Generally speaking, based upon past experience with clothes, cotton/poly blends are the worst at "pilling" as you call it. 100% polyester does not pill at all. These are nylon/poly, which I predict will not pill at all. They do not have a fly, so they are unisex garments. Other similar base-layers have flys.

Not so far and if they did I don't know anyone who would not wear pants over them.

I wear these all the time and have seen no pilling.

being a woman, I really cannot say, but these are very thick - which might be good if you are in snow country.

I just tried these on and I wear a 32 inseam. There was some bunching of material around the ankles, so they will work for someone with a 34 inseam. I'm very impressed with them as they keep my legs very warm.
