Rated 5 out of 5 by malgosiamk Perfect layer under ski pants
I was so pleased when I received the Cresta Wool Base Layer pants. They are soft, don't pinch at the waist at all, and are very cozy! Size small fit well, I am 5"3 and petite. Size xs might be shorter but I like the longer length to go over my heels :)

Most people on these reviews say this is not itchy, but I have sensitive skin and I found it very itchy. The XS is also too large for me, I couldn't layer my mid layers over it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 40yearsacustomer Womans Cresta Wool Base Layer Midweight Pants
As an 80-year-old who now feels the cold more intensely than before, I love these pants. They feel very comfortable on the skin, and have just enough stretch to cling but not encomber movement. They keep my legs warm and are joy to wear. I do not limit their use to underwear status; but also, wear them as part of my casual daily wear on chilly days. The seams are so constructed that they are either not noticed and just blend in. I wash them in the machine, regular cycle, in a laundry bag; but do not dry them in the dryer. They come out like new. My husband has the corresponding pair in mens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mouse23 Love these longjohns!
I am very happy with these long johns, they are so much thicker and more substantial than some that I had from another manufacturer. They really keep me warm and cozy and so far, have washed well.The small fits me really well, no tight, pinchy waist which I really appreciate! I am 5'2" tall and they are a little long on me but not enough to be a problem. We keep our house chilly in the winter and so I am considering getting the top too!

Rated 5 out of 5 the best wool pants!
that is the best wool pant I have ever gotten! Keep me warm when I walk outside, fit me very well (I am 130 lb, 5'3'',I choose size S, I guess xs should fit me too because it is quite elastic) and best of all, it is not scratchy at all like other wool pants. I fell like I am wearing a cotton pant when I put it on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kitty12345 Love It!
I bought this about 4 yrs ago and loved it. I wear it every day during the winter months. It is soft and comfortable. Not itchy or scrathy. It is like new after 4 yrs. I just bought a set for my daughter. I found them to be generous cut. 5 foot 3inches and I wore an XS, a perfect fit. Love It!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WhooHoo2 Great fit ...... comfy !!
I only ordered one to see how they were. Nice beautiful soft wool, no
itch. I'm 5'5'' - 150 lbs, medium fits perfect. When washing do not put in the dryer unless it's cool air just to get any wrinkles out and then let it hang to dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BlueJean good weight for first layer
It was nice to receive an underlayer without an overstretched waistband! I was looking for a warm first layer for snoweshoeing, x-country skiing or even downhill skiing on pleasant days without paying top dollar for Merino wool products. This was perfect. It is a bit on the thin side, so I wouldn't count on it for tremendous worth, but is good for temps in the 20-40 degree range.

After reading such positive reviews on this item, I went ahead and purchased the item. No, it's not true that it's NOT itchy; because the material made my legs itch. I even lotioned my legs down and sorry, I'm a hypersensitive person and it made my legs itch. I love LL Bean products, too, but sad that this particular item didnt fit the requirements. I'm sure that it will fit better for others. (It is made with good materials, too....) that I'm certain!

I work outside for hours and these are great. Very warm and comfortable. I even wear them to bed to make waking up in the cold mornings not so dreadful! The only thing I would change is I'd like to see stirrups added in the future. That's the only thing. They tend to ride up on the calves. Other than that they are great!
