These are NOT Terramar's Hot Totties Grid Fleece. I love Hot Totties! I was hoping these would be close and they sort of are but are missing the amount of stretch of Hot Totties. These also have a smooth exterior which helps clothes slide over them but causes additional static cling. I'd rather not have the smooth exterior. I'm not going to send them back because of the low cost and I can wear them around the house but wouldn't recommend them and won't buy them again.

These tights are lovely, mid-weight (as I just wrote a review for heavy fleece lined Avalanche sports pants that are heavy and much warmer). They do run a bit small. I am hourglass figure, 5'4", 117, size 4/Small bottoms, and these are tights, not leggings, just in case you do not wish to show off your bottom in tight tights, size up.
The grid pattern is small, and unobtrusive. Good value, comfortable. The bottom of these tights end above my ankle bone, so for a tall person these would fit more like Capris.
I haven't used them for that purpose, but I think you could easily use them under snow pants. They are really warm. I'm 5'4 120 and I got a small, so probably a medium, because they are just right for me...and might be a little tight for you.

The tights run VERY small. I would guess that you would need an xl. I included the measurements in a review....perhaps you can look for them? They are warm and would be perfect under ski pants I would think. I have the pants and they are warm. They are low rise.

My wife found them sufficiently warm for limited time outdoors in Skagway Alaska during the last week of December 2013, with temperatures in the teens Fahrenheit. She says the tights stayed in place . She did say she wised they had a higher waist. My wife is 5'10" and size (14-16) she was happy with women's XL.

They are quite warm. I've only been skiing a couple of times and I think these would be fine under snow pants. Yes they will stay in place. They have a good tight waist band. I'm 5'5 and I thought they were fine for my height so they should fit you perfect. Somewhat true to size. They were a little tighter than I thought they would.

Sizing wise, I say you are in between M and L, depending on if you like a little tight/short, or a bit roomy (not baggy). I use them for 8 degree downhill underliner and 23 degree cross country skiing, works perfect for me. I personally think this fleece pants are every bit as good (or better) than the pricy Underarmor warm underliners. I will buy more of this brand in grid fleece. Oh, they don't make statics sparks!

The fabric will have some stretch to it, but i do not think it will be very warm when wore alone..... It is meant to be worn as a layering piece.

The fabric is not stretchy and do not fit as your typical leggings, though they are very warm. I personally would not ware those to figure skating bc these do not sit tight on you.

I think they will be warm enough. I just wore them yesterday on a 6 mile hike in the snow. It was 29-32 degrees with minimal sun and I was plenty warm. They are also very stretchy. The only downside of wearing them alone is that stuff sticks to them...dog fur, hay etc...but I am out on a ranch so you will probably be fine :-) They are super roomy so you may want to go down a size. I am 5'6 and weigh 130 and I got a M, they fit but are not at all snug. Hope this helps!
