Product Description

Ice climbers and alpinists know the pitfalls of sweaty leads and cold belays. Designed to manage the extremes of high-output exertion in cool to cold conditions - and keep you dry and warm beneath layers - our most versatile and fastest-wicking performance base-layer features a dense interior honeycomb construction that's brushed for next-to-skin softness, warmth and compressibility. With a smooth jersey exterior that glides readily beneath layers, a flat-seam construction that eliminates chafe, a brushed-elastic waistband and a gusseted crotch with a functional fly. Made from 4.8-oz 100% polyester (64% recycled) with Gladiodor® natural odor control for the garment. Recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program.

HotovenVery Warm!

Voted 5/5

I have used these a few times in very cold conditions, and its incredible at how well they perform. I used them on a 3 day snow shoeing trip where the temperatures were ranging from 10 to -16F degrees. All I wore were these and my water proof non-insulated snow pants over top. My legs stayed very warm and comfortable. I have been fully satisfied and will be sure to buy more!
