The best outdoor apparel I’ve ever used!!!
I used these bottoms for multiple week+ long sea kayaking adventures and they didn’t smell at all. I used two pairs over and over again and got soaked in sweat with my drysuit and no odor whatsoever!! I bought some merino wool layers from another brand and returned them because there is no comparison out there. I promise you won’t be disappointed!!
Stood up to a week under a drysuit
We just spent a week on a river in the Brooks Range, during which time I wore a single pair of these base layer pants and a single AF long sleeve base layer top the entire time -- under a drysuit during the day, while hanging around in camp, and even while sleeping. I'll admit this made me nervous since I usually bring a change of clothes for sleeping, but I wanted to cut down on weight and really test these out. And in the end these worked out great! I loved how quickly these dry out: I can get sweaty while paddling, but whenever we took a break on shore I opened up the zips on my drysuit and let everything air out, and by the time we were done my base layer was dry again. They are also super comfortable, with a good fit, stretchy fabric, and don't feel itchy when wet (like wool can). And the best thing: after a week on the water I didn't smell bad at all! Amazing!
Functional and Flattering
I spent eight days straight in these base layers on a mountaineering trip in the Alaska range. They were an excellent barrier against my ski pants keeping me safe from excessive chafing as well and giving me an extra boost of warmth when I needed it. The waistband design was super flattering and the legs fit despite having muscular thighs and a smallish waist. I am between a size 6 and 8 and I found the medium to be spot on and money very well spent :)
Favorite base layer!
I have a pair of these bottoms in the Azalea fit and LOVE them. I’ve worn them in -6° while backcountry skiing and they kept my legs warm and cozy. I also wore them almost everyday for two weeks in Tahoe and they were PERFECT. 10/10 recommend.
