        I'm not a hiker or a snowboarder. I'm not likely to climb Everest or compete in a dog sled race across the straits of Alaska. I suspect a lot of you that have happened past this review aren't either. Probably, like me, you work in the cold in the winter, maybe sit in a deer stand on the weekends. I'm not even sure how to pronounce " merino" cause I've never heard anyone actually speak the word. But i can tell you without hesitation it works. I watch people shiver all winter while I am comfortable. Burn your cotton long johns. Smartwool is worth every penny.

        I have always loved merino wool stuff, namely smart wool stuff. I have several base layer shirts that I have had and used for years. They are durable and well made, and will last man more years. Because of this, I decided to buy a pair of 250 bottoms. Very comfy, standard long john bottoms. My beef is that the seam under the crotch has completely blown out! Even on PRODEAL these bottoms are already ridiculously over priced, and now they are cheaply made, and I am stuck with them. This experience has made me look at other companies. Also, smart wool doesn't use 100% merino wool in a lot of their stuff any more. Most notably their sweaters. Check out MINUS 33. Not the best quality stuff, but it is NEARLY HALF THE COST! The socks are still the best though...

        Just bought this as an undergarment for dry suit diving. Works like a charm; warm, soft, and breathable.

        I wear this wool long underwear with my foul weather gear on a racing sailboat on off shore, long distances races where the weather can get very wet and very cold. This long underwear, along with the matching wool undershirt, keeps me comfortable and cozy. Love it.

        Solid except for the knees...

        Comments about SmartWool NTS Mid 250 Bottoms:

        Knees gave out after a year or so on the first pair, but the elastic is still solid. I can either make roos out of them or add knee patches. Wish the fabric was just a wee bit more durable, but hey, they are nice and the aren't contributing to the micro plastic problem like fleece is.

        Comments about SmartWool NTS Mid 250 Bottoms:

        I love the NTS line of base layers. The 250 is a good weight, offers adequate warmth as a base layer, and it is soft, comfortable wool. I just wish there were more size options to meet my needs. I'm 6'4'' and ordered the large for the inseam length. But overall it's too baggy for a base layer. A Medium Long would have been perfect.

        I have multiple pairs of these and have worn them every day in the winter for several years (they do wear out). In my work as a preschool assistant teacher, I am inside and outside with the kids. I am comfortable with these under my clothing. I also use them for improv dancing.

        Smartwool for the win

        Comments about SmartWool NTS Mid 250 Bottoms:

        Purchased these for my husband in preparation for a move to Nebraska. These were among three brands we decided to try. I am already a fan, but after wearing these for a week and only trying the other brands on for one day or less, hubby was sold. He loved them so much, he returned everything else that was still in return condition and asked for more Smartwool. His rating: just enough comfort and warmth without resulting in sweat in all the wrong places!

        Best long underwear I've ever owned

        Pros

        • True to size
        • Warm

        Cons

        • Stretches a bit during wear

        Best Uses

          Comments about SmartWool NTS Mid 250 Bottoms:

          Great fit and warmth from size M for a 33/32 pant size. Wore them under sweatpants for workouts and jeans for extra warmth hanging outside in recent cold snap. No comparison to synthetic for warmth and comfort; do tend to stretch a bit while wearing and need a wash between wearings to "reset"the material. Would never wear them except as an underneath layer.

          I would give them 5 stars, but the waist band curls up. It's a nice wide waist band, but it should be stitched so it doesn't curl. Other than that, I really like them. They are very warm and comfortable.
