Soft & Comfortable. When you think wool, you may think scratchy, but MERIWOOL’s Merino Wool clothing line is far from it. We only use superfine 18.5-micron 100% all natural Merino wool responsibly sourced from Australia to ensure your comfort all day long with absolutely no itching!
Renewable Resource. Feel good knowing that what you are wearing is beneficial to you and also good for the Earth: Merino sheep shed and regrow new ultra-downy coats every year, making their wool a highly renewable resource.
Limitless Layers. Merino sheep have adapted to all kinds of weather including freezing winters and scorching summers. Their wool keeps them warm when it’s cold, cool when it’s hot, and that inspired us. MERIWOOL’s superfine Merino wool clothing can be layered as needed, but won’t weigh you down or hold you back.
Wicking. When you’re out exploring all day, there’s nothing more uncomfortable than a sweat-soaked shirt sticking to your skin. Merino wool absorbs sweat from your skin and then releases it to the air in a process called “wicking.” Wicking keeps you dry and comfortable, and coupled with its natural anti-bacterial properties, that means it resists odors. Rest assured that MERIWOOL’s got your back, even when you’re out for days in the wilderness.
Machine-Washable On Cold Setting & Tumble Dry On Low Heat With Like Colors. Easy to wash, wrinkle-resistant, quick to dry, and with very little maintenance required, Merino wool is ready whenever you are for your next adventure.
Warranty: Your MERIWOOL garment comes standard with a 1-year limited manufacturer’s warranty which covers manufacturing/material defects only. It does not cover wear and tear due to normal use, abuse, negligence, or unapproved alterations. To process a claim, please contact the authorized partner you purchased your garment product.

Primary use of these bottoms is as a base layer when doing active outdoor winter sports like ice climbing and snowshoeing in the Sierras and keeping the chill at bay during the windy evening camp fires and cold tent camping. I chose the Elementex (E) brand because of its thickness (250g), it great price and a handful of good reviews. With the (SW) pair being OVER twice as much money… and the (REI) pair being double in price… the short review is that these (E) are a HECK of a bargain and 95% as nice as the (SW) brand and 50% better than the (REI) brand.
THICKNESS: Compared to (SW) the E’s are almost as thick, so close that you could not tell unless comparing them side by side. (SW) appears to have a little more loft and a slightly higher thread count? (tighter weave??) End result is (SW) feels just a hair plusher, but not worth the crazy price (in my opining) unless you can get the (SW) pair at a really DEEP discount. The (E) pair was twice as thick as the (REI) brand and made the (REI) ones feel like a lightweight thickness as compared to a midweight. No comparison to the (REI) pair, as they were twice the price and half the thickness.
CUFFS: The (E) pair has a very sturdy elastic waist strap sewn into the wool. It is burly and would almost be overkill but I had no issues while wearing them. The (SW) is more subtle in stretch, more like the wide band at the top of women’s yoga pants, but much taller and plusher feeling than the E’s. The REI version was like a typical band you would find on name brand boxers. All three felt comfortable with the E gripping the most and the REI the least. For the ankles, the E had the thickest, tallest cuffs to seal out the drafts, SW the next and REI the least but all worked just fine and had no issues.
FIT: Snug, seemed true to their size chart, I got mine a wee bit smaller so the inseam would be shorter and these are stretchy to begin with. Thick curve hugging with snug ankles and waist.
DURABILITY: I have not worn any pair more than a few weekends so I will chime back in if I have any concerns on failures. The E’s come with a 30 day warranty, and I have read reviews that the SW waist band has quality control issues, but SW does replace them when that happens. REI of course has a 365 day guarantee on anything they sell so nuff said there.
PACKAGING: The bottoms came in a nicer box than I had expected. Simple cardboard with clear sizing and laundering directions inside. Garment tags are both sewn on and printed so if you are not a tag fan you may have to do some trimming. It was very nice not to see or have to fight any plastic in the packaging!!!!!
SUMMARY: If you are looking for a base layer that is 95% of what the SW brand is without dropping a whole Ben Franklin on a pair of long underwear, then the E’s seem to get my vote. I thought they were just as good, and at half the retail price… works for me. If anyone can compare them to the Ice Breaker model, I would love to hear about it as I am a fan of their wool products as well. Hope this helps… go have some fun!!!
Quality: I was skeptical about buying wool. Everyone knows wool keeps you warm best, and is the most ideal fabric for physical exertion in cold climates. These leggings feel solidly crafted. If you're concerned about the relatively low price, don't be. In fact, after looking at other wool leggings at REI, I prefer the Elementex construction. Some wool leggings are just as thin as synthetic running leggings, but these have some thickness to them, so I expect more insulation out of them. The waistband blends into the rest of the leggings, which makes it more comfortable than normal waistbands.
Feeling: these are sooooooft! When they tell you merino wool is fine and soft, it's true. It feels just like cotton and maybe even softer - they feel great to put on. They stretch well, just like other leggings. There is ample length at the bottom, if you get the right size it should be fine.
Takeaway: all of the other products I looked at were no less than $60, and at REI wool leggings are no less than $90. I was worried about buying Elementex because there were no reviews, no sizes (see photos), and they were so much cheaper, but these did not let me down and I expect them to do very well.
Sizing: Elementex doesn't include sizes on Amazon so I included the chart which came in the box. If you get the wrong size, note the liberal return policy.
I love the detail of the stitching and the fact that it's midweight, which is perfect for the kind of weather he usually camps in. So happy this item was a good deal and also high quality.
