I bought these pants because I was tired of my legs being cold while I was out shoveling snow. When paired with a wind proof type pant these are amazing at keeping your body heat in. The reflective dots were a little itchy at first, but I quickly got used to the feeling, and while I out shoveling I didn't even notice it.
I would recommend this product.

Our son gave these as a gift one Christmas. My husband says they are better than long johns. You can actually maintain better "body heat management" with the Omni Heat base layers.
I would recommend this product.

I am 6' tall, ~170 lb and I got a small size of these and they fit perfectly. I use them everyday to bike to work. I wear these under a pair of loose athletic shorts and keep me warm but not too sweaty while I work up a sweat. I highly recommend this product!

I recommend getting one size larger as these run small, otherwise they fit great and kept me warm when I used them.

I use these as a base layer when I ride my motorcycle in the winter when temps are in the high 30's - low 40's. It has been a great success even when worn under a pair of jeans. Under my gortex pants, they are the perfect base layer and I am always warm, even in the rain.
The OmniWick works really well to keep me dry even when I start to sweat. And the Omni Heat is noticeably warmer than other items without it.
The garment is so well cut and constructed that it is comfortable to wear all the time. I like the material.
I can't say enough good stuff about this. Great experience with it.
I would recommend this product.

It came out to be a little small and tighter than I had expected, but I guess that is necessary for preservation of body warmth. I never wear an underwear when wearing this, which makes biking a little discomforting. Other than that, I keeps you warm on cold days and quite comfortable when not doing extreme sports.
I would recommend this product.

This base layer kept me warm when it got down in the 30's and 40's. I've washed mine a couple times and then hang it out to dry and I've never had any problems. They are nice and snug as they should be but they also have some give to them to stretch to your size.
I would recommend this product.

Great for winter. Fit was a little tighter than I had imagined but no movement restrictions. Little big for my wife but she loves the lightweight protection from the cold. I love showing friends this great product. I have one more set on my Christmas list and my wife has put in for two sets. Will be buying for my daughter and son inlaw if they are good. Great job Columbia...
I would recommend this product.

You need to pay attention to the knee areas as there no muscles and body cannot generate warmth in these areas. I always feel cold there. Other places are OK, always dry and warm.
Thanks for attention.
I do not recommend this product.

It's hard to determine if the product works well. Sitting motionless for 3 hours deer hunting, my body lost heat anyway. My intended use was to have this product retain enough heat to keep me warm for a longer time period. Nice fit, nice manufacturing, I need to see if there is any difference at a lower temp, such as zero to 5 below.
I do think physical activity will be a plus, because then your body will be generating heat for this product to retain.
