Rated 5 out of 5 by kicknglider Great Base Layer
Love the mid weight base layer. Wear predominately underneath the Sporthill Traverse II pants. The pants are snug, but I can't tell the difference when I am wearing this base layer or not. These do not bind, ride up, etc. There is no shrinkage in the dryer. Very soft. Very warm. Wear them when snow shoeing or xc skiing about 3 times per week. Worst conditions were -5 degrees and heavy snow and my bottom half was not cold at all. Although I don't use fabric softener in my wash, I do like to use a dryer sheet for static cling in the dryer. These say "no fabric softener" so I am afraid to use a dryer sheet with them. They have no static cling, but having to dry them separately from the rest of the laundry is a bit of a pain. I am 5'1" and weigh about 140 pounds. I ordered a size PM and they are amply roomy. Extremely comfortable.

I stay cold in the winter - having arthritis in my aging knees only makes the discomfort worse. I've been trying to find some 'long underwear' that would be comfortable under jeans. These fit that bill to a T. They keep my legs snuggly warm so I'm a happy camper! I'm 5'3", wear a size 10-12 in jeans and ordered a medium petite. They're a perfect fit and I'm ordering another pair today.

I bought one pair to try out. I have a silk base layer that works well, but doesn't quite give enough flexibility. These Power dry base layer pants rock! The material is extremely comfortable. They almost feel as if I have nothing on under my jeans. I have worn them to work and was amazed by the comfort level that I experienced. I will be getting a couple more pairs.

I purchased these pants to use as pajama bottoms and they are perfect for that purpose. They are comfortable and of good quality. The waistband doesn't bind. They hold up well after washing and machine drying. I am 5' 3" and the petite size fits well. I liked them so much I bought another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DidiOD Run very large
I love these pants, they are thin but warm and very comfortable. I have worn them on my bike rides under a pair of sports leggings as well as to work under regular trousers - worked equally well. I am 5.6 and 140 lbs, hourglass figure. After reading reviews, I've ordered a Small and that was somewhat loose. I exchanged them for an XS and those fit just perfectly. Needless to say, I am not close to SX, usual pant size 8-9.
Great base layer, love them and am thinking of getting a second pair in purple in addition to my bright blue one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maintrealer Go two sizes too small!
Had to harvest during a frost and these guys were great. Glad I read the reviews to go a couple sizes smaller. I almost didn't go with the XS but they're a good fit, and are even slightly loose for my taste. For others to compare, I'm 5'6", 135lbs, size 28 pants and would've initially gone with medium.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bubbie4 Winter made warmer
The feel is wonderful. The length perfect. But best of all, the ankle fits perfectly without binding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by motorcyclingmama Not like compression; comfy!
I have no fairing on my motorcycle. Wore these under my jeans while riding on a day where outside temps. were in the 50's. Kept me warm, dry, and forgot I had them on as they were so comfy. I would compare them to another brands 'base 2' in terms of warmth. As it gets colder, I'm likely to wear them under my fleece lined jeans (also from LLbean) & should be good to go!
