Model: Base Tight 175
Why we like it From subzero ski sessions to summer nights, these multisport bottoms proved superior.
Warmth “I wore these almost exclusively all winter, in all types of conditions,” reports a tester who used the tights under insulated pants down to -4°F in Alaska and the Canadian Rockies and with thinner shell pants up to 35°F in Colorado. “I stayed warm on the subzero days, and on milder ones, opening vents on my snow pants always got enough air moving through to regulate my temperature.”
Wicking The blended fabric—48 percent merino, 48 percent polyester, and 4 percent Lycra for stretch—pulled sweat off the skin and dried in a snap.
Fit “They’re super-comfortable—they do their job and stay out of the way,” reports a tester who also loved them for lounging around a Banff hut and sleeping on cool, high-elevation summer nights.
Durability Ding: Our samples suffered pilling at the hips after a season of use.
