Those IB's are a bit different, as they have the mesh panels behind the knees

I have these http://ca.icebreaker.com/en/mens-baselayers/oasis-leggings/100481.html?dwvar_100481_color=001

The Oasis is the mid-weight (200gr) and the Apex are the heavy weight (260gr). Personally I find the 260 weight a bit much for leggings.

I ended up getting the Isaora asym shell, two pairs of Isaora leggings, a merino long sleeve, and a pair of nikexacg tech fleece. The asym shell fit a size too big, had to exchange it. The design was nice, there was a buttoned waistband underneath, the sleeves had adjustable cuff openings, the side zippers near the chest served no purpose but looked cool. Also happy with the leggings, don't mind the low rise, they are far better quality than the uniqlo heattech longjohns. The merino long sleeve is cut well, gonna wear it a lot when running at night. Haven't gotten the tech fleece yet. All in all, happy with Isoara's design, especially at this price point. Most of the winter items are on sale, and with a 25% off code, they end up cheaper than every other option. I would've had to pay double for a pair of icebreaker leggings.

 

Side question, do you guys wear underwear underneath leggings? I always have just because i don't wanna have to wash the leggings every time I use them.

Can't imagine the quality to be high given the asking price. The provenance of their fabric is conspicuously missing.

What exactly do you mean by quality?

Who knows how breathable the fabric is? What is the water repellency after a period of wear and washes? Is it durable? Is the hand and texture of the fabric soft or stiff? How is the inside finished? Construction? Etc.

The design itself is very bland.

How can measure durable of things? I agree that lack of inside constraction photos is no good.

 

Thank you

Pretty happy with the ACR tech fleece pants, good cut, pretty thick, comfortable. Articulated knees is nice for gym stuff. Will take a picture of everything when my Isaora 3L gets here.

What is Arc's best cut of pants for something similar to the p10 (loose tapered), but a little slimmer up top? The Apparat?
