Love these

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

In the winter I prefer to layer two pairs of icebreaker 200 than to wear a single pair of 260's, I find it more comfortable. . I bring two pairs with me on summer backpacking trips and wear them under shorts when it gets cold instead of packing bulky pants.

Men's leggings

    I made the wrong purchase with these. If you're looking for something to keep you warm during the winter, these are not it. Instead I went with the Under Armour 2.0

    Already ripped with very litte usage...

    Wow - I expected way better than this. I'm only 32/34 waist / lenght, but neither med or large in this model really fits...med just too small (but snug) - large too baggy....I can't figure that out - that's a very standard size (I have shorter legs for my height I guess).

    I've only used this for snowboarding 3 times and then general cold weather base maybe 2-3 times (non rugged) so getting a fail this soon is surprising.

    Anyway, for what it is - this otherwise seemed like the better model I've had in years except this AM when I pulled it up, as I'd done any # of baselayer pants in 30 year and never had this issue - they ripped just below the waistband. IT was only then I noticed the material is nearly see-through in that section.

    I purchased this baselayer pant due to the good reviews below and I don't dispute those - sometimes things just fail as not every item can actually be the same durability, quality, etc. Still - when dropping decent coin, esp on a one of the more recom'd items here, it shouldn't just rip in less than a month. Totally going to refund and buy higher.

    Please describe your method for washing them. It doesn't sound like an issue with the fabric, but sounds like they were likely washed incorrectly, which is the #1 cause of the durability issue. 99% of the time when this happens, it is due to incorrect washing of the fabric. I highly suggest reading tags of clothing before washing, and follow the directions and use the proper detergents for delicate fabrics like Merino Wool. When washed properly, Merino Wool will last a very long time. When washed incorrectly, they will fall apart immediately, which is what it sounds like in your case. Good luck man!

    IMHO, the best gear is the piece that you forget you even have on and don't need to worry about. This is that piece. Warm, breathable and tough. I go thru a ton of long underwear and this stands the test of time. Wore these and a very lightweight summer pant in single degree temps and I was comfy. They also don't get that smell that some synthetic fabric does. Merino for the win! They also dry very quickly.

    These are great pieces. The aspect of wool coarse feel is non existent and performs amazingly well at keeping you warm and dry.

    A Good Option

    These “Everyday” leggings fit as advertised, and wear well so far. They were chosen as a replacement for the “Oasis” model that was way to small for me. Good quality...whatever the difference between "Oasis" and "Everyday" might be, it is minimal so far. Durability may eventually be better with "Oasis" but this is still an unknown. I own a few Icebreaker t-shirts and briefs that have been excellent. The long versions, when sized correctly, should also be great!

    Good bottoms

    I liked these baselayers, they handled sweat amazingly. My only complaint is they seemed to stretch out a bit when they get really wet. I plan to experiment with sizing a bit and see if a medium might work a bit better for me. Performance wise these bottoms are fantastic, don't hesitate to pick them up!

    Cool as Ice

    These are really nice base layer leggings. They fit true to size and are comfortable. Hopefully they wear well and last a long time.

    Wool is the way to go

      These are a nice lightweight baselayer and they are simply awesome. They keep you nice and dry and feel great against the skin. Need to update all of my baselayers to wool.

      Sweet leggings

      I have a size 33" waist and got the large, they fit good. Love um

      So awesome!

      I will never wear a synthetic base layer again. These are amazing. great fit, supremely comfortable, moisture absorbent so no swamp a$$. regulate temps like a boss!

      warm and comfortable

      Picked these up because they were a good price and I heard good things about Icebreaker wool. We had some serious cold weather roll in to SLC and these worked out perfectly. They're warm, soft and very comfortable. Inside, I barely notice I'm wearing them, but as soon as I step outside, I'm glad I have them on. 5'9 with 30in waist and I went with the Medium

      Great Value

      If you have experience with merino baselayers then I don't need tos sell you on it... but if you don't, you MUST give them a shot. The merino has a magical ability to regulate temperature, avoid odor, and be soft and cozy.



      And often it is tough to justify the cost of upgrading from synthetic to merino, but these bottoms are a great deal. You can definitely still find synthetics for cheaper, but I would highly recommend giving these a try. There's nothing crazy about them... just a very simple long underwear bottom that feels great and wont break the bank.



      As for sizing, I'm 6'1 190lbs and a 34 waist and Large fits great, so I would say they are true to size and to their size chart. Get some and get outside to put them to the test yourself!

      Warm and fuzzy

      Thank you to Backcountry.com and Icebreaker for hand-selecting me to review this piece of gear for the benefit of the backcountry.com community.

      Overview: Midweight material 100% merino wool. Very tight knit weave which gives it a smooth feel. Sizing is spot on for a medium. I'm 32"x33". The form fit is perfect, no bunching



      Pro: Amazing next to skin feel. The athletic fit is supportive yet breathable where you want it to be so. The wicking and thus cooling aspect of wool is key for long days in the mountains.

      Thicker material is warmer than a standard base layer yet highly breathable. The best part for dirtbaggers, No funky odor!

      Con: None thus far.



      I camped for 2 days and a night on Mt Hood wearing these the whole time, never did I get that "holy cow I need a shower" feeling. I asked by touring partner to smell them and with offers of beer when we got to town he obliged. No odor!

      A few traill runs with cold mountain air and I forgot I was wearing them. All in all Icebreaker is going to replace Smartwool for me.
