Absolutely fantastic base layer! I used both the 200g and the 400g Long Johns from Woolpower on a recent expedition to the Arctic and they were both absolutely first class. I found that the 200g kept me warm enough to be comfortable, but also allowed me to run cold enough to not sweat excessively, a valuable dual benefit in such low temperatures. The 400g will stand up to anything with a decent set of trousers. I found that in an environment without clothes washing facilities it is perfect for me, due to the ease of airing out. I took x1 400g pair of Long Johns with me and they came into their own when the Mercury dropped to almost -40. I also had no problems with maintaining good personal hygiene. It would have been an entirely different story with synthetic base layers. I am thrilled with this product and will be hard pressed to find anything I prefer any time soon. The sizing guide/fit is accurate and allows for air to be trapped close to the body without being too baggy and cumbersome. The Long Johns were paired up to great effect with the Thorlos extreme cold socks and I had no issues with tight spots or restriction when the socks were work over the top of the Long Johns. Zero itchiness - 100% comfort. Top drawer!
