Summary

Excellent base layer bottoms.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Warm
  • Durable

I was looking for a comfortable pair of base layer bottoms to keep me warm under my work dress pants. These things were perfect. I am about 5'11" 180 lbs with a 33/34 inch waist and I think the medium is a perfect fit. These bottoms are form fitting but not so constricting where it feels too tight or decreases my mobility.

The material is very soft to the touch and stretchy. I have read stories about other base layer materials getting ripped by toe nails when people have tried to put them on, but this material has so far been very durable and doesn't seem prone to getting ripped by a toe nail snag.

The moisture and heat control seem to be pretty good with this material. I am on my feet at work for 8 hours a day and I never feel sweaty or cold in these.

Unless it's absolutely freezing, I would recommend getting these. Based on reviews, the Capilene 4 doesn't seem that much warmer. If you really want a heavyweight bottom, the Patagonia Piton bottom seems like it would do the job.

The R1 Full-Zip Jacket?s popularity among backcountry athletes was inevitable: It stretches, breathes, wicks and warms with ultimate efficiency. And the full-zip front makes it super versatile, from a midlayer in winter to a lightweight jacket on early fall mornings and alpine summer evenings. The finely tuned high/low interior grid polyester fabric (Polartec Power Dry ) squashes down to practically nothing, has a terrific feel and remains durable and warm. Updates include an improved, technical fit and our new Variable Conditions Cuffs, which have discreet on-seam thumb loops and a spiral stitch construction that lets you push up your sleeves without constricting your forearms. New minimalist zippers reduce bulk, while lightweight micro-grid stretch polyester at the cuffs and armpits enhance breathability and dry times. A soft, kissing-welt zipper garage at the chin gives next-to-skin comfort. Two zippered handwarmer pockets sit above the harness line, with their mesh pocket bags doubling as internal drop-in pockets, and the offset shoulder seams steer clear of pack straps.
