You're up at four in the morning for a ski tour and your buddies are rushing you out the door and onto the trail. You look like you've gotten dressed in the dark (because you have), and it also looks like you've gotten dressed in the cold--but you've got a trick up your sleeve. Your buddies' aghast looks aside, you'll be happy to drop trow on the skin track and remove the Northern Playground Men's Ziplongs 3/4 Microfleece Pant when things have warmed up and everyone else is overheating. Thanks to the full-length zipper on this baselayer, you get to be warm and toasty in those first cold hours on the tour, but don't have to sweat your way to the top. The polyester blend is stretchy enough for kick turns, and quick-drying so you don't find yourself cold and clammy before you have a chance to shed the extra layer.
