Paradox baselayers at Costco

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Has anyone tried the Paradox mid-weight baselayer tops and bottoms they are selling at Costco? How are they? How do they run size wise?

I got tops and bottoms in a mens medium, which seemed to run a bit large. But it's Costco, you can always take something back for a return or exhange. One thing I've seen since this item has been carried, is an amazing pile of opened tops and bottoms next to the display. Costco needs to get dressing rooms!

Size M bottoms

I bought the size Medium bottoms and they were too big as well. I'm a 29-30 waist and 31 inseam and think I could have went with the Smalls. They shrunk a little when I washed them.

They are a little baggy but I think I will keep them. They work well for running in cold weather.

I'm generally between a medium and large depending on make. I opted to buy the medium Paradox bottoms. I found them to still have a generous amount of room, especially in the butt area which had more room than any large base-layer bottoms I have.

The bottoms don't provide much warmth. I used them skiing in temperatures in the 20s where my other thinner base-layers provide more than enough warmth and found the insulation the Paradox bottoms provide lacking. I definitely won't be buying a matching top.

I like the tops very much as a midweight top. I will wear the bottoms but I don;t like the 'no fly' part.

I'd agree with the sizing being generous too. Medium is sort of loose, but not unmanagebly so.

My legs never get cold so I probably would not notice if they were less well insulating.

I will often wear a heavy weight top and a thinner bottom. Of course I have lined outer pants to.

Bottoms run big, tops are properly sized. The top is mid weight and very good for a midweight layer. I biked in one all fall.

They keep moving them at the Bozeman Costco. They were last seen in sporting goods near ski goggles, helmets and sleds there.

They do make them bigger than normal. I usally wear Large top and Medium bottms. Went with Medim top and small bottoms. Fit is loose but good. They are decent quality and are quite warm. Fit and feel is just as good as the overpriced name brand models at the local ski shop.

Since I wear shirts that vary from large to x-large, I bought a set of each.  The x-large was way too big for both the tops and bottoms.  Sold them to a friend and got two more sets in large.  I like the fleece-like inside and the smooth outside that allows a second layer to slide over it.  Saw them on Amazon with a 5 star rating, so it isn't just me.  I've quit wearing my other base layers as these are my favorites.

It's wonderful! Just bought my second Paradox baselayer top because I am so impressed with the first one...and you can not beat the price!
