I highly recommend these for someone looking for a base layer set. They are very cozy and warm. They do not chafe anywhere, are very soft, and move very well with the body.
I am 6ft 2in and 180 lbs and purchased the medium size. They fit very well, though I was hesitant at first they might be too short. The legs have a long length, and there is even a little extra leg length to spare for me with plenty of room in the crotch; the torso is also a perfect length and goes down well below where I have my belt to tuck it in; the arms are just a little short for me, but as this is a base layer that's no big deal. I also have a large chest and shoulders from working out and the top fits very comfortably on me.
The overall fabric quality is great too -- thick and durable.
These are my super picky husbands favorite long johns to date. He works on power lines and needed a totally cotton option. These are wonderful. Great quality material. Waist band is sturdy but not itchy or uncomfortable. Crotch is slightly thicker. I wouldn't say padded but thicker material.
My husband is only about 5'7'' and these are good length for him. Slightly long but not too long. Wash well. I can't attest to drying because I have chosen to not dry his out of fear they will shrink. Will repurchase when we need long johns again. Thanks
My last review got wiped out because I added pics wearing them, so let's see if this one works with no pics...
They're very soft and comfy. I'm 6'3" 170 and usually wear a 32/33w. I got Mediums and they fit perfectly. I would say these add a little extra wind protection, but just wearing jeans over them, I wouldn't really say they're thermal. They're also really nice for wearing to bed... I sleep with the heat off, so it's these or a union suit :)
I have worn lots of different thermal underwear. My first 2 day impression is they are well worth the money and more. I ordered the Large. The large fit me perfectly. I'm 6 foot, 205lbs. I have a 32in in-seam with a 34in waist. The legs fit great! I wear a large to XL shirts. The top fits perfectly, sleeves are not short or long just right. The ankles and wrist cuffs are not super tight but not too loose that they move easily on you and they are super soft. They are thick and keep you warm but I never sweated in them, didn't get that hot. I highly recommend them and ill be buying another set.
My personal quest for the perfect toasty long johns continues. These didn't work for me, but my brother loves them. One night, he forgot he was wearing only the David Archy bottoms and went out, got in his car, and drove away without realizing he was--umm, underdressed! I was so amazed by his story that I gave him mine.Glad for him, but I guess I'll stick with doubling up on the Fruit of the Loom bottoms until i find something that works as well for me.
