Patagonia Capilene 3 Long Underwear Bottoms - Men'sis rated4.25out of5by4.
Rated5out of5byVagabondHooverfromSimply the bestSimple and straight forward. I've been using Patagonia Capilene for over 20 years. This is my third pair (somehow lost the second pair). The material feels more comfortable than my older pair. I have found that these don't ball up after many uses, are great for active warmth or just sitting around the campsite and they dry quickly if you sweat in them. They are reliable and dependable. I'm glad to see Patagonia hasn't reduced quality like so many other respected brands over the last 10-20 years.

Rated3out of5bydrcoolfromSizing has changedThe new slim fit version doesn't fit me as well as the previous one. I'm 5'5" with 34" waist and strong legs from hiking. I used to be able to fit the small bottoms well, but they are now too snug around the waist. The medium fits the waist fine, but now they are too long for me. If you're shorter and have stronger legs and gluteal muscles, it will be hard to find a good fit.

Rated5out of5byOld Hiker GuyfromPerfect cold weather hiking base layerWe've been doing some cool weather hiking lately and my silks just weren't overcoming the near freezing temps outside. I did an online chat with the REI folks and they recommended these as a bottom base layer. I was concerned about chafing, but they told me that, if these chafed, just return them for a refund. REI is the best!
The first time I hiked with them, I was sold. They do not chafe, even at a very brisk pace, and they keep me warm. Exactly what I wanted, exactly what they promised.

Rated4out of5byJerry the RunnerfromSolid ski base layerThese have worked well for me as a downhill skiing base layer and for cool weather hiking. If it's just these and a pair of pants, they can be chilly. If you're wearing these in the winter, you'll probably want to stay active.
The fitting for these is not very forgiving and they're made for a slimmer fit. My weight tends to move around quite a bit (150-180lbs) @ 5'8". I now own a pair of Smartwool long underwear pants -- they are *much* more forgiving than the Capilene 3, and they're significantly warmer, but only slightly thicker.
