The design of these award winning thermal merino base layer leggings has been improved for Winter 2012. For a start the waist band has been manufactured to accommodate more Elastane, providing extra support whilst still maintaining its low profile and soft handle. The shape of the legs and thighs has been contoured to enable a closer fit and also eliminating any baggy areas around the knees and ankles. The gusset area has been reinforced to increase the overall strength of the leggings. All in all a great pair of thermal leggings to wear when skiing, mountaineering or just walking the dog!
