Good deal on warm tights

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Gloria goes shopping from San Bernardino, CA on Friday, January 11, 2013
These looked way too short when they arrived, but once they were on, the length was fine and there was even a couple of inches to spare. I'm 5'4" so these should work for women up to 5'7" at least. I've worn them several times, and at first I didn't think I would experience the pilling that other reviewers have mentioned, but all of a sudden there it was. I guess for the price, I can deal with it, but it is annoying to have to waste time with tape or a clothes brush on undergarments. Otherwise these are warm and cozy; while they are close-fitting they are a bit thick under 'dressy' jeans and pants, I really prefer a wool base layer for that (these are a bit warmer than my Terramar woolskins that I also got from STP although they are not quite as breathable). These are great for extra warmth under more casual jeans, work-wear or ski pants, or just for around the house or to sleep in. I like the wide non-binding waist band, very comfortable, and it doesn't roll or twist; also the rise is low enough not to be a nuisance without being so low that I have to keep pulling them up.
