Good for Ski Bunnies - And that's about it
Reviewed by Erin from Oregon on Saturday, December 24, 2016
I'm a Huge Smartwool fan but these weren't winners. I'm typically a size large (5'4" / 170 lbs) and purchased them in my normal size. The waist band is nice and wide but the elastic seems to want to do a summersault and doesn't want to remain flat. Purchased the fun blue & orange groovy print in these bottoms & the matching top. Wish they had the full length bottoms in the matching print to go with the top that I love, unfortunately Smartwool only made the fun blue/ orange print in these capris. I like to wear Smartwool bottoms around the house, as pajamas and under pants when it gets real cold. The short length just wouldn't cut it for keeping my legs warm, as the majority of the bottom leg was exposed. The only thing I can see them being good for is if someone does downhill skiing, with really tall socks, worn as a base layer under ski pants. I like wearing capris when the weather is nicer, but I don't think they'd pass as capri pants for public wearing. I have a pair of plain black Smartwool capris purchased about 3 years ago and they are much softer & the fabric more forgiving. Due to a combination of things,. these got sent back.
