A great value icebreaker legging
on 25 February 2013
This isnt the same finish quality as the sports ranges, as it has normal seams down both sides instead of flat stitching, but toher than that seems to be the same high quality merino that you can just chuck in the washing machine and dry overnight. These really are the rolls royce of leggings for thermal use. They dont stay as perfect shape as synthetic fibres, but I use them instead of tights on cold days under a skirt or long boots for which this doesnt matter. That said, they do keep fairly good shape. I sized down, being inbetween sizes - waist small, hips curvey! - and this has worked well fit wise.
If you are used to icebreaker, and wondering like I was what GSM it is, then Inowuld put it between 150 amd 200 for thickness and opacity. They would therefore be great for most weathers from hot to cold, but not really alpine. The ends are hemmed, but only a small hem, so would be fine to tuck into boots. Lengthwise, they are regular compared to marks or next.
