Love the wide waist band. My 28 yo daughter now wants a pair.
Overall the Point6 base layers have performed superbly in cold and wet spring conditions in Washington state. They've also made for great travel and layering pieces on the road over the last several months. As always, the merino wool is anti stink and pairs well in the front country as well as the back country. I would caution that the fit of the waistband tends to sag in the back. I also find that they end above the ankle bone and I would prefer them a tad longer for most wear. However, the shorter fit does work well for reducing bulk in a boot with thicker socks for alpine situations.
Love all products made by this company. Base layers are very well designed to fit the athletic body-- comfortable, quick dry, high quality. Well done.
