The best thing about the Duofold Mid-Weight Wicking Thermal Leggings is that the double-layered ribbed cotton is thermal enough to keep you toasty on the slopes, but is also moisture-wicking so you dont sweat up a storm when skiing or snowboarding. Of course, theyre great to wear as a base layer for winter sports, but they also double as loungewear to wear around the lodge for aprs-ski apps and cocktails. To that point, theyre not see-through, one happy customer remarks, so you can prance around in them in public to your hearts desire.

Lots of the 700-plus five-star Amazon reviewers like to throw them on under stretchy jeans or jeggings in sub-zero temps in order to get in their holiday sight-seeing, late fall yard work, or chilly camping or hiking. One happy purchaser even goes horseback riding in the cold with them. They allow you freedom to move and dont bag or sag. I can even feel comfortable wearing them when riding a horse. They dont bind, she says.

Others have purchased them as a base layer for trips to Iceland or other continental climate zones. These kept me plenty warn underneath an additional pair of pants on the cold and windy volcano of Mauna Kea. They are thick enough that they can be worn alone like fleece-lined leggings, which is precisely how I intend on wearing them now, one five-star reviewer writes. I even slept in them one night, she adds.

You cant beat the price of $13 to $14, depending on the color you choose. This saves money by not having the furnace running all the time, another satisfied reviewer points out. That person has the right ideaat that price, you might as well buy a pair for every day of the week and turn the heat down as low as you want.
