Rated 5 out of 5 by Hottenstein Very Lightweight Long Underwear
This is exactly what I wanted. These are very lightweight and will take the chill off. But if you want long johns for significant warmth in very cold weather, this is not the one. The real test for these will be durability. My last pair did not last long enough. That was several years ago, so I will try again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ranger552 Perfect first layer for Warnth
I have been in boy scouts for 15 years and help teach Cold Weather Training to many people of all ages. This pair of Black Men's Silk Underwear the most perfect non-bulky layer of warmth I have ever worn. It may not be suitable for the outdoor stuff we do but to wear under dress cloths, it does the trick. Snug close to the skin fit keeps body heat in well without causing a Fit problem for men's jeans and Dress Slacks. Thank you. In all honesty, my wife suggested I try a pair of hers before purchasing them. I did, These were $47 and hers used to be $26. They are definitely worth every penny to be warm in the NYS winters.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dmt525 Not worth the money
I bought these as a gift for my husband. When he opened them we couldn't believe how sheer they were - more like nylons than longjohns. He wore them under his lined work pants and did find that they helped keep him warmer during his 30 min walk to work. They aren't good when the temperature gets too low but will do on mild days. The big issue is that they totally fell apart! The seams gave out and they developed runs. Totally not worth the expense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanFanClub as expected
Having silk "long-johns" for many years I thought my husband might enjoy extra warmth on cold winter days.
He loves them for their warmth as well as the item is light-weight and fits well under jeans. They seem to help more when the wind chill is down than the typical "waffle weave".
Can always trust LLBean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DCDad Good for when I go indoors and out all day
These are great for when I have appointments and walk outside a lot but also spend time in the office. With these on, I am not too hot when I am inside and not too cold when I am out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by EdMcC Comfortable but lack durability
The pants are very comfortable and ideal for wearing indoors in winter or when it's moderately cold outside. Unfortunately they're not durable. I get one season, maybe one and a half, out of them before holes start inside the thighs and I have to replace them. If you buy them with that expectation then you won't be disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by aplusstudent Too revealing!
I don't mind that the fabric is sheer. I mind very much that the front flap won't stay closed.
These will be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by valzbear Surprisingly good job
When I opened the packaging, I thought these were too thin and my husband wouldn't like them. After wearing them one day, he said they were perfect! Lightweight, breathable, comfortable, not too clingy....just ordered a third pair for him!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FirstTimeBuyer2 Silk is warm
This rating is a no brainer. I bought these before for my golfing hubby and he now has worn out two pair. He loves the fact they are not bulky and give him the extra layer of warmth on those cooler days on the links. Getting the perfect gift is special and it keeps on giving for three seasons.
