Rated 4 out of 5 by Avelliina Very warm, but light weight.
I purchased these for my husband and he says that these light weight pants are very warm and extremely comfortable. I recommend that you purchase one size smaller, as other reviewers have advised. The only downside is that there is already a run in the fabric and he had only worn them for a couple of hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jim620 Great Quality for the Price
I bought two of these and they are well made and fit me well and the price is very reasonable compared to other polartek pants at other stores. My only wish is the lightweight would be just a tad lighter or they come out with a silk weight version. I tried buying their silk pants but they do not wash well and are too thin and see through for me.

Have now bought 4 of these for myself and relatives and all like them very much. Easier to wear than the old thermo cotton ones.
and wear much better for time and shrinkage reduction of any that I have owned previous.

Fits well, nicely designed and constructed, with reinforced seams, looks good, but could be tighter at the waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by InternetShopper2 lightweight long underpants
I have worn these several times, as pajamas, and so far they are as expected. I got the large long size, and they are fine for me, 6'1", 215#. I have an other set of these, in another color, and I liked them, and bought another set when they had a sale.
If I had to change anything, I would make the waist higher, or I guess the clothing wording would be to have a higher rise. I would also put more elastic at the bottom of the legs. When I wear long underwear, I like to put my socks over my long johns, and that doesn't work too well for these.
They are comfortable, and just the right weight for my needs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ruffo Size Problem
I liked this lightweight base layer, but I had to return it for exchange because it was too large. The replacement is back-ordered, perhaps due to popularity. For years, I have worn a silk base layer during the colder months. The LL Bean lightweight base layer holds in heat a little better than silk, so I am looking forward to getting the smaller size. Getting the size right is always a problem with internet shopping, but fortunately LL Bean is good about returns. I did have to pay my own return postage, however.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ctman1 Warm but poor elastic in waist band
The material is excellent and does a good job of wicking moisture. However, the waist band is skimpy and not sufficient for holding up the pants. The waist band should be an inch wider. Also, the inseam is the same for all tall sizes. That doesn't make sense.

Rated 4 out of 5 by danrogy Good stuff! No complaints.
This has a nice fit, is very warm, is quite comfortable & didn't noticeably shrink. They're almost as thin as silk. I recommend them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kanakakeaka Good layering for better warmth!
This product worked well in the recent cold spell to keep me warm. I wore it with everyday jeans and Sunday go-to-church trousers and it did the job. Roomy. Comfortable.
