Factor 2 Plus Mens Mid Layer Leggings

Factor 2 Plus Mens Mid Layer Leggings are perfect for activities in low and extreme cold temperatures where extra insulation is needed, or if the legs are idle for long periods of time.

Based on Sub Zeros award winning mid layer fabric, the Factor 2 Plus has more yarn used in it's manufacture, producing a thicker single sided micro fleece layer that traps more hot air from the body, making it 20% warmer than normal Factor 2. It still has a hydrophilic treatment added to it during the finishing process to aide moisture control and decrease drying times, and the inclusion of the same amount of Spandex provides extra stretch, allowing these mid layers to contour to your bodies shape without being restrictive, either when worn next to the skin, or over the top of base layers.

The panel design of these leggings, in combination with the fabrics stretch, provides a  tailored fit to most lower body shapes. The high rise back helps to prevent lower back exposure during activities as well as providing extra kidney protection, whilst the low profile covered elasticated waist band reduces midriff bulk when combined with other Sub Zero base layers.  To prevent rubbing and bulking out at the ankles, the leg cuffs are finished with a low profile seam.

These Sub Zero mid layer leggings are suitable for all cold weather winter activities including mountaineering, polar expeditions, skiing and canoeing, but are also at home all year round underneath motorbike leathers. They are ideal to be paired with Sub Zero Factor 1 Plus base layers for adding extra insulation without the bulk.

SIZING GUIDE
There are no standard sizes for clothing, which is why each brand has their own unique cut and fit. Please do not presume you are the same size between brands for a similar product. If you have a pair of mid layer leggings that fits correctly, then use it as a template for these measurements.  

HOW TO MEASURE
Waist - Measure the full circumference of your torso above the hips
Inside Leg - Measure from the top of your groin down the inside of your leg to the ankle bone. 

MID LAYER FIT
Our Factor 2 Plus mid layers will contour to most body shapes when worn thanks to the fabrics in-built stretch. You should wear them close fitting but not so they are restrictive. Wearing baggy or ill fitting mid layers will lead to the loss of heat and a reduction in their wicking properties.

These mid layers are designed to be worn over the top of our base layers but they can be worn directly next to the skin if required. Sizes for both Sub Zero base layers and mid layers are comparable - so if you wear a Factor 1 plus base layer in large, then you should require a Sub Zero Factor 2 Plus mid layer in the same size and vice versa. However, this may not work out for everybody so please consult the size chart below. 

Please be aware that the inside leg measurements are taken from the garments unstretched. The waist measurement indicates the range of fit. 

The table below shows the garment measurements for our Factor 2 Plus Mid layer leggings. There is a tolerance of +/- 5mm.

Washing instructions for Sub Zero Factor 2 mid layers and Factor 2 Plus mid layers are printed on a white silk tag stitched to the back neck. Please follow these instructions carefully as failure to comply with them will make your guarantee void. If you have removed the tag or are unsure of the washing symbol meaning, the full washing instructions can be found below.

  • Machine wash or hand wash in water not exceeding 40°C or 105°F
  • You can use a mild washing detergent but ideally you want to use a mid layer specific washing treatment 
  • Wash dark colours separately, do not bleach, do not use fabric conditioners
  • These mid layers can be spun dry in a washing machine
  • Do not tumble dry. These mid layers will quickly dry on a line or airer as they retain very little water once spun/rung out. 
  • Do not dry clean
  • Regular ironing may be performed at a low setting (110°C, 230°F) only, but we advise against it.

 

Due to the construction of the Factor 2 and Factor 2 Plus fabric, garments may be susceptible to pilling on areas that witness excess rubbing - inside thighs, armpits etc. It may also occur if Velcro or unguarded zips come in to contact with the fabric. Pilling is the formation of small lint beads caused by the rubbing of the fabric by external pressure. They do not affect the performance of the garment. Please do not remove these with a lint remover if possible as they protect the fabric from further pilling.   

GENERAL WASHING TIPS
When you go to wash any garment with a zip, ensure it is done up fully otherwise the exposed teeth may cause harm in the wash cycle. The same can be said for garments containing Velcro. Your best course of action would be to wash these garments either by hand or on their own in a washing machine.

With the advancement in detergent technology, you very rarely need to wash any garments these days above 30°C. It is better to use a specific anti-bacterial wash-in treatment rather than increasing the temperature.

A lot of Sub zero products, especially the base layers and mid layers, can be ironed on a low temperature setting. We would advise against this as the heat settings on irons are not always reliable. In any case, the stretch properties of synthetics helps reduce creases in the wash and if there are any afterwards, they often drop out when worn.

Like most synthetics, Sub Zero fabrics will melt or burn if exposed to flame or direct heat. They are not flame resistant; do not use them near ANY direct source of heat or flame. This includes some of our merino wool products that contain a small percentage of synthetic yarn.
