As seen in Backpacker Magazine, "The Best Cold Weather Base Layers for 2022," the all new Aspect Merino High Rise Base Layer Legging is the evolution of our best-selling bottom. Designed at the request of our female athletes, this design features a sleek high-waisted fit that provides incredible comfort and coverage on the hill and off. To complement the new fit, we custom-developed a new Merino Wool fabric that is super-soft, durable and has great recovery to retain its flattering shape. Not to mention, the Merino Wool next-to-skin offers all the technical performance benefits that occur naturally with this miracle fiber: wicks sweat, repels odor and regulates temperature, so you feel fresh and comfortable all day long.
