near-perfect merino base layer

I do so love me some Icebreaker BL bottoms, and the Vertex is no exception to that. Soft, comfortable, and hold up well with wear, built for long term use. The inseam on size M is just a tad short for my 33" legs, but usually I'm layering these anyway so socks cover my ankles. Waistband is elastic, also holds its shape and stretch well--my only little complaint is that the waistband is kind of narrow and can dig in and create bulges if you, like me, don't have a perfectly toned midsection. But again, layering resolves those kinds of issues (as would crunches, I suppose). I'm 5'6" 125lb and size M fits just right, not super tight against the skin. Get 'em.
