Not as warm or comfortable as older version
I bought these to replace the capilene thermal pants my husband lost and was disappointed with the new fabric. The previous set of thermal weight capilene was warmer and felt more comfortable. Love Patagonia but for me this updated pant feels like a miss.

My go-to baselayer.
Patagonia's capilene thermal weight layers are so phenomenal. The cut/fit is great, really comfortable, no bulkiness, and the fabric is much warmer than one might think just holding it, but with an outer layer and/or shell it really does provide incredible warmth, but even more importantly to me: incredible breathability. I tend to run hot and... Read More sweat easily during medium-to-high output activities, so I absolutely need breathability in cold weather and the cap thermals breath SO well and I'm able to perfectly manage heat buildup. I use the cap thermal pants for everything. Hiking/trekking, fly fishing, and especially snowboarding - you name it, I've worn them for it. Don't ever discontinue these!
I’ve had 5 or 6
I’ve had 5 or 6 sets of your Capilene Long underwear. In the past I’ve bought small sizes without thermal bottoms. Since it’s been awhile since I had a new pair I went to your size chart and bought mediums. They are way too long and from the knee down they are baggy. I hesitate to return underwear that don’t fit. I’m 5’7” tall, weigh 148lbs and hav... Read Moree a 33-34” waist.
Although the workmanship was good (as usual) this product does not provide the warmth which the "title" represents. They are likely fine for one who on occasion ventures out of the office, I need a non-see through fabric. It feels like a breeze is penetrating my outer wear which is a tight weave and a Patagonia pant.
Ordered based on sizing chart
Ordered based on sizing chart and they were way too small.

Excellent Breathable Base Layer
I've been wearing Capilene thermal weight bottoms for a little over a year now and I continue to be impressed by their performance. The tops and bottoms are extremely lightweight and pack very well. The material is thin - almost 'see through' in between the insulation grid but this does not seem to hinder the warmth at all when layer... Read Moreed under a shell. I have skied 10+ hours with temperatures in the 10-25F range with only a pair of ski pants on over top and never had the slightest bit of a chill. I've decided to purchase a second pair of Capilene Thermal bottoms over merino wool because I really don't feel like the extra warmth of merino wool is worth all the fuss of taking care of it. You can toss Capilene in the wash and it's nearly dry enough to wear after the spin cycle.
Expedition Weight Capilene Seekers
I've seen quite a few reviews on hear discussing the current Thermal Weight Capilene not being as warm as their predecessor the Expedition Weight Capilene. I believe the current iteration is meant to strike the balance between warmth and breath-ability. However, if you find yourself wanting the warmth of the Expedition weight I would suggest t... Read Moreaking a look at the Men's Crosstrek Fleece Bottoms. They are made from the exact same material as the old Expedition Weight (Polartec Power Stretch). They may not be as tight as other baselayers but aren't too much of a compromise. If you are looking for breath-ability and overall versatility these are perfect. Hope this helps!
Capilene thermal bottoms-mens
I haven't used them hiking yet but wore them around the house on a cold evening. They feel very comfy and as warm as expected. They fit well; I'm 5'5" and got a small. Unfortunately, the listed weight was way off; very much misadvertising. They are listed at 4.7oz for a medium and i was told 4.3oz for a small. My small weighs 6.... Read More4oz, about 50% more then the listed weight. As someone trying to lighten their pack with an efficient clothing system, this was very disappointing and has me reconsidering patagonia for other lightweight options like rain jacket. Unfortunately i had worn it around for a couple hours and ripped the tags off before weighing it.
Lightweight and packable,not very warm
I purchased these a month ago. They feel nice and are easy to pack. However,they are not warm. They aren't as warm as my older edition Capilene Midweight bottoms. They aren't as warm as some older,cheaper bottoms I have. If you're looking to save ounces,they're great. If you want to stay warm,go with something else.
One could argue these pants are in the gradation between the mid-weight bottoms and a pair of fleece pants,but for me this is not entirely the case,read on. These thermals are ribbed with a 1/2 inch wide horizontal band of insulation and then just the thin carcass material for the the next 1/2 inch. Which in a 3 layer set up below a pair of fleece ... Read Morepants,with the wind and water resistant outer layer,would make the over all set up slightly lighter weight/less bulky but equally as warm,compared to a not ribbed full insulation design. I intended to use these in a 2 layer set up below a pair of rain pants that are not air tight at the ankle,this setup allows a little cold wind up the ankle,which would be of no consequence,if your bottom layer had a full insulation design. Zoom in really close on the web pictures,and you can see what I mean.
A bit disappointed
Bought these thermal weight bottoms believing they would a good replacement for my 10+ year old thermal weight bottom. They are not nearly as warm of comfortable as the original fleece type offering. I am not saying that they are not useful or well made,but they require heavier shell insulation to achieve the same overall warmth and they just don&#... Read Morex27;t give the same instant comfort of the expedition fleece. They are fine if you know what you are getting,but definitely not an equal replacement for the great expedition weight Patagonia classics.
These are great and are a perfect weight for wearing under my shell while backcountry skiing. I got them just before Christmas and I just returned from a hut trip to Canada where we had a week of cold temps (high temps of -20 C on several days). These did a good job of both keeping me warm and also breathing enough so I didn't get too sweaty. ...

These baselayer bottoms work great in a variety of conditions. I wore them under lightweight hiking pants with temps in the 40s and was not cold while on the trail. They also work well to layer under jeans for walking around town in the winter,and even inside with jeans they don't feel too hot. I love that I can leave them on all day,whether I...

I tried on the merino thermal weight bottoms to compare and these were a looser fit (more comfortable for me),whereas the merino bottoms were more like tights.
