Constructed with Merino6TM Technology, the Chinook Merino Bottoms are the foundation for our layering system. This piece is designed to incorporate the soft feel and moisture-wicking capabilities of nylon while retaining the insulating and odor-resistant benefits of merino wool on extended backpacking trips. Layered under our outer shells, this piece is just enough to knock the edge off on the brisk mornings. The "Boot-Top" length ensures comfort when worn with tall top hiking boots and the low profile waistband is ideal for use under a heavy backpack waist belt.
The Chinook line is the best base layer on the market from what I have found. There is no wonder Stone Glacier is always out of stock on these. Be patient and get these in your hunting closet because they are warm and fit perfectly.
I recommend getting these along with the baselayer top. They are a very durable and warm pair of baselayer pants. They are comfortable as well. I like the elastic waistband on them. They fit me a little deep in the crotch. They are expensive, but if you can afford them, they are worth the price.
