Rated 4 out of 5 by ANON18 Comfortable and warm!
I got these originally as a size medium without referring to the size chart. They were extremely large. I am 5'6'' and 135 lbs with a 27'' waist. I returned them and got a size extra small. These fit great now. The legs are tight, which is how I wanted them, but the stomach area and waste are a bit to loose still. I would definitely order a size or two down. They are really comfortable and soft. I wore them today for a three mile run in 15 degree weather and was a great temperature. I could feel the cold but wasn't cold myself. They'd be great as a layer in colder weather. The only reason I detracted a star was because they fall down slightly as you run.

Just ordered a second pair i like them so much. I am 5'6 and 149lbs i read the reviews and decided to order a small. They fit perfect and wash and dry great. They will be my winter pj's because of the comfort and they look good with a long shirt over them for day or night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TchrTrvlr Light weight warmth
I purchased these pants with the matching top for a fall trip to Iceland. I wore them for a very chilly glacial river rafting trip and for several hikes in cold, rainy, windy weather. WONDERFUL warmth! Since my return I have worn them for warmth on hiking trails in the Smoky Mountains when there was still snow and ice around us. They have washed and dried well and will remain a favorite as winter has descended upon us so early.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tominco Too Short if you are Tall
The fabric is great. The construction is great. Both the top and the bottoms will keep you nice and warm, sort of. I am 5'9". I ordered the proper size. Everything fits just fine around but everything is too short. The waist pulls down when I bend over to lift a shovel full of snow. Unless I wear extra long socks, there is a band of exposed flesh between the tops of my socks and the bottoms of my legs. The sleeves of the top are "extra long" with a hole for your thumb. Where it not for this feature,the sleeves would be WAY too short. Because of the extra sleeve length, the sleeves are OK but I will never be able to get my thumb into that hole that sits at the middle of my wrist.
If you are average or short, this base layer will be wonderful for you. If you are tall, look elsewhere. It is frustrating that the men's version of this product is available in "tall". Do women really only come in average and short heights?

Rated 4 out of 5 by SamanthaMT Base Layer?
It all depends on what one considers a ?base layer.? I purchased this on the premise that I would wear it under my pants?thinking it would be a close fit on the body. However, these fit more like a second or third layer as there is plenty room to wear another pair of leggings, leg warmers, etc. It fits well, but as loose fitting pants... not a ?base layer.?
For reference: 5?6? 160 lbs, size 8 jean, size M/L in tops, and measurements are 40-30-39?I ordered the medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shop2much06 Great Product
I bought this for my recent move to AK and so far this has been a lifesaver. I've worn it under hiking pants to help keep me warm and even when hiking in the blowing rain, they've kept me warm. They are also a great fit; very similar to yoga tights. I am 5'7 130# and purchased the small.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jsusanp Nice fabric awful fit
I ordered a size down because of the reviews. They were still too large in the waist and thighs. I would go down one more size except the legs were much too short for me. I am 5'7" and 170 (athletic) pounds. The merino wool tights have a much better fit for me. Too bad because I like this fabric better. They have petite, why not talls, also?

These long underwear pants were a good buy. I bought XSmall, and they fit me well [I am 5'3", 121 lbs, and more 'pear' shaped]. Comfy material, great length (not too short, so they stay down in my socks), and not skin tight (I don't have to wiggle into them).

Rated 4 out of 5 by 2wheelz Look good sizing off
So got these for my wife for her birthday in a M and she is a M 5' 6" had to send the tops and bottoms back for S. Finding this an ongoing issue with sizing at LLbean....
Not been field tested yet but I'm sure they will work fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KenyonJ Great for Cold Weather
I gave a pair to my wife for her birthday for her to where to college baseball games under her slacks. With outside temps in the low 30's, these pants kept her very warm. Sizing runs a little large which is great so a medium fit her well instead of the large which I had pondered. Definitely a great buy and very good quality!
