Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought these leggings to wear under my pants on a recent trip to Iceland. I loved them, but here are a few observations:
1) They were slightly itchy at first, so I wore footless tights underneath them. Some reviews said to wash them and the itchiness would go away. It didn't. After wearing them with the tights underneath for a few days, they were no longer itchy. I guess they just needed to be broken in with some wear to get rid of the little pieces of wool fibers that made them itchy.
2) You need a wind-resistant top layer for them to work well outside. When I wore them under my hiking pants, I was perfectly warm hiking around in the snow and rain. (We spent the day on a glacier and it rained and snowed the entire time.) However, when I wore them under jeans, the wind whipped right through them and I was cold.
3) They work best outside when you generate some body heat. I noticed they were really good at trapping in the warmth created by my...
It took me a long time to justify spending a large amount of money on what is basically a pair of leggings but now that I have I'm considering buying another pair in a different color. These leggings are amazing. They do triple-duty in my house. They act as an excellent base layer for winter performance sports, they are indispensable as a basic (and warm) pair of leggings for my everyday fashion (pair with a tank, sweater and pair of cute boots - you're set), and they're great pj bottoms on a cold night.
The material is soft, warm and dries fast (I hang my clothes to dry).
The only drawback to the wool is that the leggings start to lose their shape a bit after a couple days of wear but that's normal and doesn't indiciate any sort of deficiency.
Can't praise these leggings highly enough! Love 'em.
I received some Icebreaker leggings as a gift once (also BF260, but probably bought a few years ago) and their quality is clearly better. The wool doesn't hold together as well on this new pair, and the material is coarser. I was worried they would come apart sooner, and I don't think they're worth it for how much they cost. I returned them.
The size fit me well, although they go up pretty high and it's not always comfortable (I'm 5'10 btw).
