Honestly the best base layer that I have ever bought. I used to wear regular yoga pants/ leggings, and they were fine, but did not do much for regulating temperatures on the mountain. I boarded in Breckenridge, Vail and Tahoe and they did not stretch out, and kept me warm. They are thin enough to fit under slim fitting snowboarding pants and warm enough to wear in 2-10° weather. I am a size 27 and I bought the medium. They fit perfectly. The waist band is wide and very comfortable.

Brands I'd also recommend: Volcom, Patagonia, Terramar

The inside is super soft. They kept me warm underneath my snowpants while snowboarding in the winter. The butt area is pilling, so I would not wear these as leggings, but under pants to stay warm in cold temperatures, they fit the bill!

I used these under lighter weight stretchier pants for hiking in 30-40 degree weather. They were perfect and probably would perform well at much colder temps. Comfy, warm, cozy. 5' 3 1/2" 135lbs. Medium was a perfect fit.

I've been wearing these as leggings with rather fancy outfits. They keep me warm and look fine!

I want leggings that I can wear as a mom around town and I get cold easily. These are much better than simple leggings but I think I can get away with them with a skirt and boots. So, hurray! Warm leggings!

Long Underwear have certainly come a long way! When I first put these on I thought they would never keep me warm skiing in the cold snowy weather in Utah, but I was wrong, I was toasty warm all day. I will be buying another pair!

I went to Utah skiing and never even got a chill. These really worked well for me.

You've come a long way baby! If the last time you bought "long johns" was too far back to remember than you are in for a real, great surprise when you buy these! Materials and warmth have come a long way. A must for the winter weather people!

Great weight (not super heavy, but not too light and layers well), holds up well (so far) to use and washing. The front rise (just below waist) is perfect, waistband is very comfortable. My only complaint is inadequate coverage on the back side for me (I wish the waistband in back stayed as high up as in the front, but it is lower). I'm 5'3", 125 lbs.

Too Big - I have big hips and skinny legs. I bought a large to hopefully curtail the "muffin top" look (where the elastic cuts into your sides and your fat sticks out a bit on the sides). Anyway. The pants work great! They feel wonderful, but the larges are too big. They bag a bit at my knees and it still gives me muffin top. They are a good purchase though.
