great leggings but keep waistband out of the sun!

i bought these because there weren't any more wool bottoms that i liked in my size on sale, and am pleasantly surprised. i thought i had gotten spoiled by wool baselayers but find these to be warm, comfortable, and they don't seem to smell (not sure how they'd be on an underarm though.# i've been wearing them at home since our house is rarely above 58. i'm usually a size 6 but bought a medium because i'm tall-ish and was afraid the crotch might be too short. the medium is perfectly form-fitting, not too short or pulling in any area. i'd recommend sizing up if in doubt. just washed them however, and put them up on the line as we don't have a dryer. seems that the waistband -- well, half of it and the part that wasn't under the clothespins -- is now a much lighter shade of turquoise than the rest. i know some fabrics say to dry away from direct sunlight but it's always so damp around here and i was desperate and wanted to take advantage of a sunny day. it only took a few hours but at least they were hanging inside out. i realize there are cleaning instructions inside #and i do appreciate tagless so much!) but they are impossible to read, and even though we've actually put the symbol "translator" chart on our wall, i'm still too lazy to figure out what all the symbols mean. i just wash everything in a cold, short, delicate cycle and hang to dry, for the most part. anyway, the inner waistband really doesn't show but it did sort of surprise me so be careful if you really care about the color of your waistband. next time i will hang the bottoms facing the other way and arrange the clothespins in such a way that the fading becomes even all around!!

"layer fairly well under jeans. i bought them because i get cold easily. they ride up on the leg a little and can get annoying but i think that's true any time you're wearing more than one layer of anything. i'm not quite 5'3" so i have room to grow into them if i need it. =) i have thick thighs and a little junk in my trunk so i got the med even though a small might have fit. didn't want to take the chance and now i kinda wish i did. also, i like to wear my stuff low rise. based on the picture, it seemed like it would be but it's definitely high on me. =( often, i just fold it down. i'm sure the higher rise will come in handy when it's truly cold and i'm wearing it camping instead of out and about. keeping anyway unless i take the time to order the small just to try for sizing comparison.

Perfect except for stitching in one spot

I wanted to get a pair of long underwear that I could wear in the 20-40 degree range that would keep me warm without overheating. I have had these for about a month and they are perfect in every way, except the stitching along the front seam is unraveling. There is also a tiny hole along the front seam. I've worn them about 10 times and washed them about 3 times. I have a couple of pairs of Women's Capilene 3 Bottoms which I have had for a year and a half. Both of those are still fully intact. I don't know if I can get this pair repaired for free since I have already worn them quite a bit. Still, I don't think wearing them 10 times should cause them to start falling apart.
OlivePickle at Patagonia on 02/11/2012

I own three pairs

Yeah, it's kind of ridiculous. The only other Patagonia product I own that many of are sports bras. We keep the thermostat pretty low in the winter to cut energy costs (like 62-degrees low), and I've found that Cap 2 bottoms are ideal for wearing around the house as pants and to sleep. I've also taken them backpacking in the fall, and they've been plenty toasty for autumn nights outdoors. Having a heat radiator of a tentmate helps too. I'm only 5'3" or so, and the length, though generous, works well for me. Which is more than I can say for Patagonia's regular pants, unfortunately.

Best Currently Available

My original Capilene Bottoms have finally worn out. They must be over 10 years old. They were a light heather grey color, but I have not been able to find this color, so I thought I would try these. The Capilene 2 Bottom is very similar, except for the color. The large size fits pretty well; I'm 5'6" and about 150 pounds. I usually wear size 12-14, medium or large, depending upon the style. They fit well under pants, for everyday casual wear, snug but not too tight. The fabric is a good weight, not too bulky for packing in a suitcase.
birder1107 at Patagonia on 09/18/2011

Very cozy

I bought two pairs of these pants along with the matching shirts. They are quite comfortable and true to size. I'm a size 2 / 4 and the small is perfect. My only complaint is that after 3 uses I already have a hole one one of the seams. So far the other pants have been fine so maybe this is a quality control issue ? I love the bold colors but would also love to have them in a heather grey and winter white.
Schatze at Patagonia on 02/04/2012
These are the best long underwear I've ever owned. They're the perfect weight & thickness. The waist band sits at my hips and fit under most of my jeans without making me feel like I'm squeezed into a sausage casing. I own two pair and am happy to have them for the cold season. I would easily recommend them to a friend.
JCRO at OutdoorPlay.com on 04/10/2012

Love these!

Love these thermals. When pairs from other brands rip and tear when I kneel in them for hours upon days, this brand keeps on doing their job -- keeping me warm, wicking sweat, and staying fitted. I only hope that with this new pair, the quality stays the same as the ones I purchased 8 years ago -- they're still kicking!
Farmer p at Rock/Creek Outfitters on 12/12/2012

comfortable fabric, great fit

I am very pleased with these bottoms. The fit is excellent for me - not too snug and not too loose. I'm 5'7" with long skinny legs and these fit much better than the small or xs capiline bottoms have fit in the past. I also really like the weight of these bottoms, slightly heavier weight than silk and very comfortable.

Negative Reviews:

What happened?

I've been buying ALL kinds of Patagonia "equipment" for well over 25 years and I'm not happy with the cut. I get that most women are wearing pants that barley cover the hip bones and probably don't want their long underwear to show when bending or reaching. However...there are some of us that have more, shall I say, mature figures and need more room in the seat and length from crotch to navel! When I put the newer version on it, I'm very worried about a serious case of "plumbers butt"! I definitely do like the fabric and leg length but that's it. I hope the folks at Patagonia will go back to or at least have available to purchase the older style cut and fit for those of us who want more coverage! ( I guess I'll keep sewing up the holes in my 20 plus year old ones!)
MatureWildWoman at Patagonia on 10/23/2012

Disappointed in the new fit

I'm with MatureWildWoman--the rise is too low for us older customers and either a less generous cut or a shorter length means the leg rises up above my socks when I sit (and stays there when I stand)--two problems I don't have with the ones I bought last year and in previous years. Can we longtime customers (25+ years) who no longer have 20-something model bodies get a "classic fit"? I still love the material and wear these all the time as both a base layer and as leggings under skirts.
ColdWeatherLover at Patagonia on 12/08/2012

Very disappointed.

Very thin and wearing out. They are lint collectors and do not wash well

Neutral Reviews:

Not durable

I've been wearing Capilene underwear since it was invented, and I've always found it to be top-notch. Last winter I retired two pair of lightweight bottoms that I'd worn for many years and replaced them with the new version. The new open-knit fabric is mighty warm for its weight, but sadly it's not nearly as durable as the old material. After only one season the legs are beginning to show multiple holes and runs. I never experienced this with the old Capilene--they wore like iron for years. I will be returning these under warranty, and hoping that the replacements will last longer.
