Good basic long underwear. Capilene doesn't absorb moisture, and fits well. I like this version better than the expedition weight bottoms, because I sweat a lot. The others are two heavy unless it is very cold out.

I've used these several times on hikes when the temp is between 30-40 degrees and they work great. Don't get cold, don't sweat. Great product.

If you sweat alot this is a great choice to help control your temp. They fit great and dont bunch up. Capilene is solid and even though Patagonia should figure out how to not break the bank for when buying this stuff, buying one pair will sell you on the product.
