SmartWool Midweight Bottom
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $79
SmartWool bottoms keep you toasty but don't itch like most wools. They are durable and machine washable. And they don't retain odor like capeliene material.
- Not ictchy
- Tend to stretch after wearing
Love my SmartWool thermals. They keep me toasty warm and are the only wool I can wear that doesn't itch me. They are machine washable and hold up really well. After a few days of wearing they do begin to stretch in certain areas.
They do a much better job at not retaining odor (unlike Patagonia's Capilene material - yuck!).
