Warm tights!!!!!

Reviewed by murban from Western, NY on Monday, February 21, 2011
These tights are super warm and add a welcome layer of insulation! I bought them to wear as an underlayer for snow pants. However, they look like nice, thick tights (which I own many pairs of in wool, cotton, and acrylic) so I wore them today with a 1940's style silk dress paired with an Icebreakers chemise and a silk slip and I was perfectly warm (it was in the low 20 degree range fahrenheit).

There are two problems, though:
1) They run short. I am 5'8.5"wear a size 8 US and the M frequently inches down my waist so the crotch needs to be hiked up.
2) The waistband doesn't move or flex well. The stitching has no flexibility so, although they fit without indenting my waist, they can pull a little.

That said, I am planning on getting another pair in a size up and have been wearing them around the house with a big sweater as lounge wear.
