The best underlayment thermal I've found.
on April 9, 2011
I've probably worn dozens of different pairs of thermals and this is by far the best, for a few reasons:
1) the fit. Probably due to the extra amount of spandex they put in it, and general engineering, but it holds closer to my body and retains shape after longer periods of time.
2) moisture wicking. They work really well at keeping you cool and dry when most other similar thermals do not.
3) general warmth. These keep me as warm as any light weight or medium weight thermal I've ever worn, at generally a much thinner, lighter, and closer fitting size.
4) a front fly. I've reviewed a couple other pairs that I recently owned that were lacking this feature. While it wasn't necessarily a deal breaker for someone who uses the bathroom maybe 3 times a day, it was still a nuisance that I did not wish to replicate by purchasing more pants without this feature (even if at a lower cost).
The only problem I have with this (and everything I buy) is the price. To me I would probably claim everything is overpriced. However, these are not so much though that I will continue to buy these next season and wear them again (hopefully they dont go out of stock!). Amazon unfortunately did not sell these when I purchased them a few months ago, or I would've gotten them from here.
BTW, I also got the Thermolator shirt, glove liners, and beanie liner - all equally good.
