I looked at the long johns (excuse me, for the younger set - the base layer bottoms....) and bought the heaviest I could find on sale a few weeks ago, which were these. I just love them. Just started wearing wool this summer instead of synthetics and am really enjoying the difference. The bottoms a... Read More

    I unapologetically wear my base layers for days on end during winter. They maybe get a wash between the end of November and the beginning of February. One. Wash. That's it.

    So, my base layers have to work or else they get rotated out of my wardrobe. Plain and simple.

    I've been a Patagonia believer for years and I love my Patagonia Cap 3's to pieces (literally) so I have high expectations for a base layer bottom.
    Icebreaker surprisingly exceeded them and have become my new go-to layer.

    My Patagonia's seemed to pill too quickly but these Midweight Icebreakers seem just as fresh as when I first bought (and wore) them. One month of consecutive day-after-day wear and look just as new as the first day I threw them on.

    KC winters are typically in the 20's and 30's, sometimes low teens. As long as I'm not wearing a light pair of pants, these Icebreaker Midweight is going to keep me warm. They definitely regulate better than my Capilene 3's did and when things get very warm the Icebreaker keeps me cooler than my Patagonia.
    Also, I'm a slim 5'10" 170ish lb, usually a size 32 waist, and the Mediums fit perfectly. Not too tight. Not too loose.

    After 30+ days of wear they don't smell a bit. Not one.

    Yeah, they're sort of pricey, but warmth and quality is worth the extra cost. If my Patagonia's were 4.5/5 stars, these Icebreaker Midweights are a 5/5.

    I wore mine under Levi's on a recent trip to Siberia. It was 20 below zero every day.

    Legs didn't get cold once.

    Marched in the Macy's Day Parade and I ordered these Midweight Bottoms and the Icebreaker Midweight Top to wear under my marching band uniform. They both did the trick and kept me nice and warm. I will be wearing them in the future when I go snow skiing. Highly recommend and fit true to size.

    I ordered from the internet and was pleasantly surprised that Sierra Trading Post was the source. It's been many years since I dealt with them. I ordered these underwear based on a recommendation from a store employee, even over their brands. I am not disappointed. I wore these underwear for six days on a horseback deer hunting trip, and they performed admirably. They are warm, but not hot when the sun comes out, stretch is minimal, and they were odor free. I recommend these underwear.
