Reviews - Patagonia Men's Merino 2 Lightweight Bottoms
Excellent Base Layer
These were my first non polyester base layer and I will definitely be buying more merino wool in the future. Being a natural fiber the wool feels much softer and more comfortable against my skin, not itchy at all. I have some capilene 3 base layer bottoms and these are warm but don't cause me to over heat and seem better constructed. The fit is slim but not skin tight which is what I prefer. Overall I would recommend trying out some of Patagonia's wool base layers if you haven't already.
I am very impressed with these bottoms. They are now the best that I own. I am not in a very cold part of the country, but I work in cold, windy conditions on winter mornings at the beach and these do the trick. I'm 6'2" and 170lbs and went for the mediums. The fit and stretch are right on for me. The only thing that could be a little better is the next to skin feel. It feels a little scratchy, but it is mostly wool after all, so that is to be expected.
