are these to wear as pants or as an under garment?
LESLIE A J these are worm under ski pants, or hiking pants, I wore them on my Kilimanjaro climb Feb 2011 - they are great, fit well and are very warm, yet light
THERESA B They are to be worn under garments; an excellent first layer. I wear them x-country skiing, snowshoeing and winter hiking. They do provide a great deal of warmth, thus, sometimes I have to take them off! ..especially when x-country skiing. They are soft and light and a very good item for backpacking in cooler weather to be worn in evenings and for sleeping. I also purchased the shirt for upper body warmth.
