Warm and comfortable
I have worn these on a few cold hikes and, although cool to start do the job. Can get a bit baggy - perhaps a bit expensive for what you get.

I'd definitely recommend
The material is really soft against your skin. I skied for 4 days in -8 condition and never felt the cold on my legs.

my icebreaker sailing/motorcycling essential
There are many reasons why I love the IB base layers especially for motorcycling, also the leggings. My criteria? Warmth insulation/breathability, natural fibre on skin (frictional heat if crashing!), easy to pack away, non-chafing, durable, easy care and layering for quick adaptation to changing temperature, non-odour (limited storage on a bike). Stylish gear is very welcome:-).
That base layer meets all those criteria perfectly- either worn daily with biking jeans or functional touring gear. Soft, warm, breathable, non-chafing, (almost) no stink after a few days. Also due to the excellent quality of the wool. Being 180cm tall & long-legged, they end approx. 5cm above my ankle. Could they be longer? Yes, sure- but with OTC socks, that's ok. Long-term durability at exposed areas (bottom, inner thighs..) will show.

best lightweight tights
these are the best. they are so comfortable under your clothes you will forget you have them on, and so warm. icebreakers is the best wearing wool leggings of all the ones i have tried. traditional long johns were too uncomfortable for me to wear so I was always cold but now i wear my tights november - may. they are machine washable and hang dry quickly so with two pairs i am always warm. i have a heavier pair of 260 weight for outdoor winter sports.

good overall but a few niggles
These are good although take a bit of time to dry, they are a little smaller than sizing inidcates so buy larger. The seam around the ankle is quite tight and as indont like extra fabric in my boots I generally pull them up to calf level and overlap the socks there. I had to overstretch the seam so they were not to tight. Also they were a little low waisted which for skiing means a bit of a draft around the middle unless base layers are well overlapped so a biggervsize would be recommended.
On the positive side they dont pong as they are wool.
