The Smartwool community is a collection of people who believe that time outside is valuable, restorative, and essential for everyone.When Smartwool started making socks back in 1994, their founders simply wanted to be able to ski longer without getting cold toes.That’s when they discovered the benefits of Merino wool as a performance fabric. It was soft (softer than any wool they had every felt), moisture-wicking, thermoregulating (warm when it’s cold, and cool when it’s warm), sustainable, and odor-neutralizing- helping to keep feet dry, comfortable, and warm for longer than the synthetic socks they were wearing at the time. It worked so well, in fact, that Smartwool uses it in almost every single item they make.
Smartwool was the first outdoor company to make performance Merino wool ski socks- revolutionizing the category and forever changing the way outdoor enthusiasts viewed their feet.
Smartwool’s whole brand was built on the desire to be comfortable on outdoor adventures-we wanted to go farther and experience more. And that drive continues to fuel everything Smartwool does. From their Merino wool supply chain to the Smartwool advocacy program to how they design their socks and apparel, Smartwool exists to help you play, love, and laugh in the great outdoors as often as you would like.
Smartwool Men’s Base Layer Bottom - Merino 250 Wool Active Pants
The targeted insulation and ventilation in the Men’s Merino 250 Base Layer Bottoms allow you to stay comfortable while you’re out working up a sweat.
These bottoms are made with an interlock knit for enhanced comfort, breathability, thermoregulation, and odor resistance with a Merino-covered waistband and traditional fly design, allowing you to wear them all day long without any discomfort.
The flatlock seam construction of these bottoms is specially designed to minimize chafing, making these pants perfect to wear underneath snow pants during a long day of skiing!
This heavier, soft, 100% Merino wool fabric offers breathable warmth, moves sweat away from the body, odor control, thermoregulation, and provides next-to-skin comfort in colder weather conditions.

Is pretty much as advertised, but nothing groundbreaking to report. A decent entry-to-mid level quality piece, especially if you find it on sale, as you often can.
a) Waist elastic - band is somewhat flimsy, and moves around inside of fabric as it is smaller than said fabric enclosure - feels kinda cheap. A wider strip is better because it distributes its pressure across, well, a wider area, leading to less sweating, constriction of movement, and potentially, pressure on inner organs (bladder, for one).
b) Ankle elastic -nonexistent; not quite as robust as should be, considering price point and brand name; is only ~1/2" from ankle to reinforcing seam. The garment itself is stretchy, but would be nice to have some doubled up wool maybe 2" in height at the ankle. The legs have a higher tendency to slide up when putting on top layer, as compared to other wool leggings I've owned like the Minus33, or WoolX ones of similar weight.
***Follow the manufacturer's specified wash and care instructions to a T, or you will damage your gear in no time. Proper care from the beginning is the best way to ensure any garment's longevity. In this case, you will keep it from pilling, thinning and tearing, stressing and shredding seams, and shrinking.
You can actually shrink wool without stressing the fabric too much. Two ways I've found to work are as follows:
1) Slow: Soak in hot, barely OK to the touch water (best to boil cold water and let it cool), leave your garment in water for ~15min/until water is about body temp. Now you gently squeeze out excess water, and either lay out to air dry, or wear it to form fit to your body shape (this is best, if you have time).
2) Fast: Turn inside out, spray down (not soaking wet) with water, throw in dryer on medium for 15min.
