Review for the Dakine FOUNDATION 3/4 Pant
I got the Dakine FOUNDATION 3/4 pant last year after finally figuring out that the years of debilitating shin pain I was having wasn't from my ski boots, it was from the damn elastic band on my thermals getting clamped into my shin by my boots. So if you're still tucking your long underwear inside your boot cuff and you have any sort of uncomfortableness in that area at all--STOP! Get you some 3/4 length thermals immediately.As far as these particular ones, like I said, I have the Foundation model--so not exactly what's listed here. But from the looks and description, I can't tell the difference. Mine are definitely a midweight. They probably wouldn't be warm enough for most people on really cold days or if your ski pants didn't have some sort of liner. I'm 6'1, 210lbs, with an athletic build (thick hips, thighs and upper legs). The Large fit me perfect. Not too tight, not too loose. The only downside to these is that after a half day or so of wear, the cuffs get pretty loose, which on a really cold day can let some air creep up your leg. Overall, as with most Dakine stuff, awesome value for your money. And with the antibacterial treatment they don't get stinky even after a couple days use. If I was shopping in this price range, I would definitely buy again or recommend to a friend. With that being said, now that I'm a 3/4 length convert, my next pair of thermals will probably be a more premium pair such a the Smartwool NTS or Patagonia. However, I'll still take these along for multi-day trips.
Im not freezing
This is great base layer. Not too tight where it feels like a muscle shirt nor too loose where you lose the heat. The 3/4 makes it idle for for snowboarding and skiing. But not only for that. I use mines all the time when riding my bike in the fridge winter weather.
