Wool is the best
I've replaced all my base layers with wool. It's warm, comfortable and odor-free. They fit great, true to size. The Merino wool does not scratch, which is the one complaint most people have about wool.

Ibex is awesome
I bought these to go with the Woolies top i bought and could not be happier. It's not real thick, in fact it's almost see-thru, but it keeps me warm and it doesn't stink! I don't know how it does it but merino is awesome. Go natural you won't regret it.

Keep you warm!
On the chilly day hike, I never go without this bottom as base. It keeps you warm and dry at the same time. Great buy for sure.

Best of the Best!
I've used Icebreaker 200 weight tights before this - they wore holes through the knees within about a year of (rough) use. Perhaps expected, but I was a bit disappointed. However, I have an Ibex woolies shirt which I've had for probably 2 years now and has been worn through all kinds of insane bushwacking trips - from cactus crunching through Big Bend in 100+ plus temps to glissading down snowfields in Jasper this fall - and is still in awesome shape! No holes, no piling, and fits like a glove. I just picked up the matching Woolies tights and these feel as burly as the top. They do fit a little small, I usually wear a men's small but wear a medium in Ibex's stuff. I tried them out near Donner pass snowshoeing (underneath some Patagonia Traverse pants) yesterday and they kept me warm, and most importantly, dry. Nice! I think Ibex makes the best Merino wool - their stuff is soft, super versatile, and BURLY. If you're looking for Merino long underwear tights that are versatile and indestructible these are them! There really are no negatives - Woolies are pretty much my most essential kit.

Fits great. I normally buy wool long underwear and this fits the bill for quality, warmth, and not a cheap itchy poor product. I live in one of the top three coldest cities in the U.S. so long underwear is a must and I would recommend this brand. I have found it to be well worth spending a little extra cash on good winter product and these are very reasonably priced compared to some of the other better brands.
