Does not resist friction for long!

Disappointed with the resistance, unfortunately after 3 months it had a hole due to friction in the crotch. Quite expensive for this resistance, I remain doubtful. Everything about the performance of this textile seems good to me, keeps you warm when it's cold, wicks away perspiration evenly. I should note, the crotch area needs to be reinforced more as the holes were caused by chafing.

Perfect for skiing…

The plan is to use it as an inner layer of ski pants. After actually taking it to ski, I didn’t feel any discomfort. It’s a great product.

Great leggings

I use them as a layer under pants, or, popularly speaking, long johns :-) They are great because they are very airy and warm at the same time and do not restrict movement. They lasted 3 winter seasons, worn all the time. I just bought a new one, the same :-)

These leggings slip easily under pants to stay warm all day long. Price a bit high.

They are practical but they should fit a little better

With use they fall off a little. They fit me well because then I put the pants and culottes on over them, and it doesn't matter much if they fall down a little.

Underpants

I have it as a first layer for cold days from about 0 to -12 degrees for cross-country skiing. They are functional, I don't sweat in them and they are comfortable on the skin.

Product testing

In November 2018, 8 trekkers (4 men and 4 women) and part of the Forclaz design team, tested these tights for 4 days in the southern French Alps (Lus La Croix Haute). You can expect wind, rain, a bit of snow, a bivouac... and a lot of fun! We were then able to make the final modifications and validate it for mountain trekking use.
