Low Bulk Warmth

Verified Buyer Reviewed by George from NY on Monday, November 17, 2014
I was expecting these to be made of thick heavy duty 300 type fleece, which would limit their practicality as a base layer. Instead, they're made of fairly low bulk but densely woven fleece. Unlike a lot of other types of fleece, you can't see daylight thru these, which gives you a sense of the material they're made out of. I'm expecting them to work well with shell ski pant shells in frigid conditions. I'm 170lbs and typically wear size 34 waist and 32 len pants - I bought the large and they fit well...not exactly form fitting but not much extra loose material either. Keep in mind these are designated for Tall Men so their length is probably around 34, although the bottom cuffs are knitted + the extra length prevents them from riding up or sliding down. There's a fly without any button which in some ways is preferable for a base layer but if you plan on wearing these solo around town (really?) then be prepared to put on a show.
