I just received my leggings and I absolutely LOVE them. I tried them on last night and this morning they were the first thing I wanted to put on. I have not taken them off since. I could live in these!
I ordered these with the intention of wearing them under other pants when out, for extra warmth in the winter, and for wearing a base layer the rare time I go skiing or snowshoeing. I thought I might also wear them as is around the house. They fit so perfectly, are so insanely comfortable, and look so good that now I think I will wear them out and about on their own as well- particularly in the shoulder seasons.
Based on other reviews noting that the leggings are somewhat transparent, I went with black. Wearing them with black underwear right now, they are not transparent on me at all. I am 5'7" and typically wear a size 10 in pants. I considered ordering these in size large but went with medium instead, and I'm glad I did. They fit my body literally perfectly. There is not one single thing I would change about them. The length is fantastic and they fit snug enough to wear under other pants, but not so snug that they feel uncomfortable in any way. I would wear them as pajamas, to lounge in, under dresses/skirts, and out in the world as regular pants.
I have been a long-time fan of Simply Merino's long sleeve tops, which I wear all winter, but didn't think I also needed merino leggings. I stand corrected. I wish I had bought these sooner!
They are peeeeeerfect!!! The color is fabulous! They are comfortable!
I love the fit and feel! They are so comfortable and never get saggy in anyway, just stay nice and fitted. The quality of the wool is great as well.
I decided to splurge on leggings for myself, after buying some clothes for my toddler and seeing how well made and soft the items were. I have been living in these tights non stop ever since they arrived!
I've had both cold (below 10) and very hot (close to 30) weather recently, and these leggings are appropriate for both cool and hot weather. I'm especially pumped to wear these in the summer, as I don't have to live in a pool of my own sweat. For cooler weather, they are not bad even as stand alone (e.g. with an appropriate top and coat), although for below zero I'd probably say you should wear something over them if you're going to be out for a while.
I even wore them to hot yoga, and while of course I still sweat, I was very comfortable both during the class as well as afterward (from both a moisture and temperature perspective). Isn't wool amazing!!
I *love* the crotch gusset, all my other cheap yoga pants pull down, but these ones stay snug around my thick thighs. I am 5'5", 135lb and the medium is perfect for me - snug but not tight.
They also look gorgeous - I got the plum colour, and while it's a bit darker than I expected based on the photos, I still love the shade. As other reviewers have noted, they are a bit sheer (especially bending over), so make note of that.
